Damn!

IMO, Some of the post and replies on here are ridiculous. Bench racing is one thing, but trying to read into tweets, internet posts, and pictures is getting out of control. Do you guys get a free crystal ball after you reach a certain number of post?

That's Turtle's new account. He's been around here longer than most of you, and is smarter than a lot of you.

When was the last true bench racing thread? It's all opinions, observations and self promotion.

It's true...it's getting worse. Everybody wants to stand out and to do that on a forum you have to be completely ridiculous, or a complete dick, or super funny.

Very true Peely, back in the day the "keyboard wars" were legendary, but they all had their own place (and their own threads), seems nowadays it has spilled over into every single thread.

@hasko: every Saturday during practice and the race seem to be the only place "real" bench racing goes on anymore. I will not tolerate the BS in those threads, maybe it is time to let those rules apply all week long?

I often talk to people at the races who say, "I read the board, but don't post." My response often is, "Ah, you're one of the smart ones.

Oh, and Bobby...attractor? That's completely subjective. Should we poll the audience?

(Not in this thread, please. If we do it, let's make it a separate thread.)

a lot of us show up to defend 'our guy'... admittedly I have trolled a few times and bitten a few more. But the reality is we(as a group) love the drama, some come to hate, some come to be devoted man friends of riders they don't even know...but we all come(pun) on EvanR127's( profile )avatars...

of the top riders, who dominates the discussions around here: James Stewart - win or lose, he is still the topic for a little while longer

seems like if James wasn't around this place would be pretty calm most weeks. Very few threads about RV considering how insanely good he is. Few threads about RD who continues to fly under the internet radar.

James wins, there is a 10 pager about it, he loses there is a 5 pager about it, he crashes, everyone shows up to prove how 'they knew it'...that causes a lot of posts...and some guys can't resist the urge to destroy idiots with witty comments.

nature of the beast? why do we watch Jerry Springer and Jersey Shore? drama, drama, drama...

don't believe the hype

Whats happen Mutt?

I understand this is the internet, what I am having a problem with is the useless information. There are just so many threads about the same thing over and over. Everyone has and is entitled to there own opinion. IMO, the majority of posters are just trolling for flames. Its sad to see that a bunch of adults are posting and doing things online that they would not approve of if their kids were doing the same.
