When posting on a topic please keep to the topic. If you feel that you have to shoot off in a different direction please start a new topic in the appropriate forum. If it directly relates to the topic that is okay but I am starting to see a lot of posts going off topic. There is plenty of room on our server for as many topics as you want to start. People that visit this forum want to read about the topic not going off in ten different directions off that topic. This is standard forum etiquette , this is one rule that I will not budge on. I have never given out warnings and I don't want to start now! Please KINDLY remind other members that might not know to keep on topic what needs to be done. All you need to do is post "Please start a new Topic or Thread".

If in doubt start a new topic!

This is your forum enjoy it. I'm just the janitor here trying to keep everything nice and neat..

No prob, if it's a technical thread it makes sense.

Would it be okay in our 'off topic' section to start a conversational thread about an event or a new bike? That is, a thread designed to let members give us a differing slant on a topic. Give and take. Kind of like an exchange over a beer. Sometimes those threads are the most fun.

Glad to see you back, BI63. For example, now I appear to be the 'sane one.'

I must admit I'm not a big fan of rules, especially for bikers. "Rules" at their inception always sound so reasonable. I'll give the idea left-handed praise and begrudgingly agree to some rules.

After all, if you're going to sell an item like a "two pound enema" then there has to be some form of mediator to make sure you're getting an accurate two pounds, no more, no less.

My motto is try to make a place beter for being there. If I go camping I clean up what ever mess I make and what ever mess was there when I got there.

Got the message, thank you for the forum.
Here's where I say: I'm starting a new thread on the subject of respecting the land.
See, I can be taught.

I don't have a personal motto, but my Aunt Clara once showed me our family crest. Yikes, those old 'Moustache Petes' could carry on a vendetta. All those years and Clara would always nod and whisper that inscription in a hushed, raspy tone, "La gente della Corsica deve morire. Colza le nostre capre."

I often questioned her about the deep resentment, to which she would always shrug, "It's a small island, my Sicily, and we needed the milk and cheese."

I guess if I had a motto it would then be, "That vision has made me lactose-intolerant."

We're a disturbed people...

Good Forums have good rules. The rules listed are very resonable.

The fewer rules the better.

If there are posers telling lies, spammers or outright trolls, I think that's a more serious problem. But a few bikers sitting around chewing that fat is hardly a heart-stopping event to get all sweaty about.

Whether it's a job, a bike club, a baseball game or a forum, if you want to muck the thing up, start spouting rules. Nothing chills debate faster, and nothing is more useless.

See, I just broke four rules. So beat me, ban me, call me Shirley.
