 If we start rewarding this behavior, pinkbike comment section is going to be nuts in 2024. By the way, shimano sucks and I love e-bikes. Also, American is the best country in the world. That should do it.

 @woofer2609: Come on guys ......help him along!!! He obviously wants to be in the first "Most down voted comments of the year" on Pinkbike!!

 They posted an example of why they don't do that article last year, most downvoted comment was incredibly sexist/hateful drivel that really wasn't enjoyable or funny to read
  • 3 1
 @src248: I'd be interested to read it, for me it doesn't need to be enjoyable or funny, just thought provoking.

 @src248: really ? I find its usually just the hate pile on for something quite benign and it makes it comical
  • 2 2
 @Compositepro: quite so. I’ll tell you what should get the most downvotes. When someone types “nice” and then 237 other people also type “nice”. Absolute waste of the internet.

 Poor Ben- he still cant crack the top 20 even in comments- I couldn't help it- Ben and his crew have been some of the BEST insight to DH racing in a time that had us wanted more! Best of luck to whatever is next-
  • 13 0
 I hope he just cracks on with his insightful videos anyway. To be one of the world’s fastest racers just isn’t given to anyone, be it by talent or chance.

 The guy who inadvertently invented cable tourism should have got an honorary mention
  • 18 1
 Yeah, I cannot believe they didn't include that. A single typo has created an entirely new insult for the industry's stupidity.

 seeing as how this is pinkbike, i'll probably get massively downvoted for pointing out that i actually made the joke about 'cable tourism' after upduro's now-infamous auto-correct. I did search for the phrase 'cable tourism' and found an older article with a similar 'cable tourism' auto-correct but no jokes were made at the time

 The comment on the Pole had me lol for real.

 Ok….we got the leaderboard but who’s the Local Legend?

 Did he invent it or was it autocorrect who invented it? In case of the latter, it will be AI who decides upon our lingo from now on.
  • 21 2
 The “Nice” comment frenzy was pretty damn good, too. It was like the one time the entire Pinkbike community came together and sang the same song in unison. It was beautiful.

 I thought the Forbidden - “Nice” comment would have made the great but more likely it’s the comment with the most replies.

 Is making the comments so small and fuzzy you trying to make us all feel older. As we squint at our screens rather then engaging in new years festivities.
