    Banned User Fevs banned for hate speech

    Oh and dear white people, how about know your (sorry, OUR) history? Being stupid and get a Nazi tattoo does not make you a Nazi. Best case you can become a neo Nazis nowadays, and to get that honnor I'd think one should act, and not just type shit on the internet. If everyone's a Nazi, no one's...

    Not LGBT, but Jewish. What does it have to do with anything? Would I hang out with this guy in real life? Hell no, he's a fuckin loser. Should he get banned from an online forum for something he wrote in private outside of that forum, which was by the way got Tottaly out of context? Hell No as...

    So this place got as far as excluding a member over a private message in a different server? Wow You all deserve the shit that the federal government is throwing at you cause you're just like them. Bunch of big brothers obsessed with your idiology. Jesus. *Commenting on first page.

    Safe-ish spots or ways to sleep in NYC

    So is it a legend that you can spend the night in the subway? Also, I did that once in Canada in a Tim Hortons (their shitty coffee chain)- I bought one drink, so I'm a customer, and I just kinda slept there (sitting, so not good sleep, but a safe place to spend the night)

    touring on 20s?

    Why should cops hassle you? Unless you're driving on freeways in states you're not allowed to, cops should leave you alone. I only had 3 unwanted encounters with cops in a year: Ontario Canada; camping where I shouldn't have. Woke me up at midnight after were called by citizens (eventually left...

    touring on 20s?

    No need to purchase any maps. The route is online, just bookmark dots on your Google maps/navigation app and you're set.. Basically, you don't even need the internet, the hwy system is parallel to the freeway, and many times you have Frontage roads which run just next to the freeway. Another...

    touring on 20s?

    Throughout the US, besides the Levee roads, I don't recall any issues with road conditions. Wherever Google mark a road as a road, it was a good paved asphalt. Sure, if you're in a farming area and you see this square-shape roads, it's probably shitty Rocky farm roads, but there's no reason to...

    touring on 20s?

    You are not allowed to ride on freeways. At least not in California. Not sure about Texas To your question; 20s seems too small but it also depends on how much you carry and your own weight. I'd say this; if you can, try and get a bigger frame that can fit at least 26's (700cc is classic). If...

    I don't get that idea of keeping a thread on topic. You know what makes ocd people OCD? The inability to think in "broken telephone".

    Resolved What if we started banning people from specific threads?

    Absolutely not. Let the community regulate itself, no further administrative involvement needed. For example, Cornilious (or whatever her name is) would have been a good candidate to be banned from her own topic, but thats just not fair. If a person is willing to "take the hit" from the...
