In the early years the thread moderated itself and people took their own responsibilities. We never had to draw up rules for the thread because of that. After the lock you have asked for guidelines we gave them to you. They were posted in the first post and in a new post in the thread. They were to be repeated for a week on every new page that would be created.
Even after the guidelines were posted people decided to not to read them and post anyhow.
I hope this helps to understand the decision a little bit better. People will still call this BS, but remember that this is Weight Weenies, not ProBikeLovers forum.
This post is the perfect manifestation of the antiquated, "things can never change" mentality that the moderators have adopted and that so many users oppose. This philosophy essentially maintains a position that this forum is provided by the moderators for the registered users. The moderators determine the direction of the content, and if you don't like it, you can leave.
