Do some like to play Kingmaker?


Btw, Mr Grumpy (LGF), you are so wrong on the decals. Be gone, spank yourself with a rusty chain and say 10 Hail Bontys before you come back and plead forgivness.


they could be tidier

Eeeeee, what a load of fuss about nothing, I can't even remember which bike I voted for...

I think most members might take a day or two to vote, sometimes you forget but that's your fault, as stated the closing time hasn't changed but it's now an issue (or isn't...) - I had never thought about tactical voting until these couple of threads...

Get Firefox. It has spell check. Then people don't have to put (sic) in your statements to show they didn't misspell them in their posts.

That's your opinion. Obviously, mine is different.

One :roll: would have sufficed. It would have been slightly less patronizing. :roll:

That has little to no bearing on whether I find your original statement offensive and exclusionary. There's a reason I only have -30 posts on MTBR since they revamped the site in 04. This is one of them.

and Pete Fagerlin. God, I can't stand that pompous jerk.

Well as the green thing is equal to a Fat (remember, the votes have it) and a Bontrager, I'm off on a celebratory US tour to drink their beers, sample their women and eat their steaks with Twinkys for afters. Oh and get tanked up on Mountain Dew.
