It however, is becoming a place of bigotry and ignorance. No, not ignorance as in someone posting about something that in which they do not know, but instead the rude comments and snide remarks that follow. If somebody posts something that you don't agree with, simply send them a personal message...calling them out publicly on the board is uncalled for and it just creates pages of unreadable material. I don't go to the PRO cycling discussion to read peoples silly arguments. It's getting really lame pretty much everywhere on this forum and its coming from us, the users. So please, I'm asking, us, the users to make weightweenies a better place.
Rudeness, snide comments. This is a phenomenon of the social interaction on the web. Has been there since the dawn of the web. One Person and People behave in entirely different ways. Suddenly a mob develops from the crowd out of a snowball. But the worst thing is all the chatter you find and the inability to get a decent word on a subject.
Even I got done recently for, would you believe it, allegedly making Insulting posts. The moderators know no better other than to go on hearsay.
Best advice is not to take this seriously. The web is no place for being social.
You can have the forum as a database for worthwhile, technical information. Like Wikipedia. But then you get all the crap posts like advice on choosing the color of my jersey or seatpost and the innuendo that is the Pro Cycling discussion. So there, best to just quit.
Change has to come from somewhere, this forum is starting to get bad. I'd like to see it turn around somewhat for any new users/cyclists.
I have noticed there does not seem to be the quality of posters and information as there use to be.
Maybe it's cyclical.
Still all in all, If I have a question I can usually count on getting an answer or advice from the forum.
