luckily

well, look at the upside- even though we have a rule against cussing which i thought would be understood for its general good intent (but obviously somehow isn't)....we DON'T have a rule about recycling or optimizing our daily intake of food. As our landfills overflow with waste and people starve around the world, tossing an aluminium can into the trash or not finishing your mashed potatoes will NOT get you banned from this forum, even though it would help society as a whole. they don't control us...we can recycled and waste food as we wish. we are freestyle moto-x rebels.

fists up.

can we please move on?

Actually if you look at actual facts (not leftist propoganda) you will find that many landfills create energy for many places like california. I think with methane gases, not sure. Research it sometime alex. Most to the untrained observer don't even look like landfills. Leftist use only the worst examples to make there points....Also the only kind of recycling that even does one ounce of good is recycling pop cans. The rest create more waste during the process and cost more money. Sorry to burst your environmentalist bubble. But like I said research it if you think im wrong. You will be suprised.

Was the gross implementation of sarcasm in my post somehow overlooked here? Anyone that has ideas for judging criteria for MTX barrel racing PM me.

Having made every attempt to read through the mindless drek that has been posted in response to Arkers original message I can only wonder why some of us in the "older" crowd cease to come here Alex has a great site that, when i first joined it, had THE BEST content in the FMX community - everything - news, pictures, upcoming events... And the majority of the people here contributed to it with material that ADDED to the content. The amount of garbage that is spewed forth on this message board is direct reflection of the mentality (or lack there of) of it's members - now this is not to say that there aren't good people here, but it does make the point that the mindlessly uneducated far outweigh the ones who truly care about this board.

Arker, I say we assemble you a banning gatling cannon and you engage idiots at will...

The subtitle for the "FreestyleMTX General" thread is "Thought provoking, intelligent perspectives clash with down-and-dirty FMX trash talk.". It says "trash talk." It seems that you are provoking fighting because if a new member reads that they probably wouldn't think twice about using cuss words or fighting. You have made this site different from the rules you made for it. And untill you change those words it is unfair and wrong to get somebody in trouble for trash talk.

This again? You will not win this argument and you won't get the rules changed,so why bring this back up? It says when you register that there is no swearing, deal with it or go somewhere else. If someone new is too stupid to read and understand the rules than what good could they contribute anyway?

What ever happened to the good old days? This place used to be off the hook.

...

i have always kept a keen eye on the stats and what the trends seem to be, and one thing has never changed here and that is that the board is truly user driven. when things are going on in the industry... there is lots of activity here... and when there isn't much going on... not much goes on here.

for all of those who ride and/or appreciate freestyle - this has been a constant source for info but it isn't because of me... i may have started with good comprehensive coverage... but if it weren't for everyone out there with true interest it would not have gone anywhere. your posts and participation is what makes this place interesting.

i keep up with enough of the riders to know they check the site all the time and many post here. if there is news or something interesting going on... like the recent Kicker event in Vegas that Tedesco covered... it pops up here. the bummer (in my opinion) is just that the fun and passion that fueled progression in freestyle has plateaued. just part of it... and the decline in progression, events and news is reflected here. just not a lot that is interesting going on.

it was fun when the hardest part of dealing with the boards was people stirring up mindless ####... perhaps my exit strategy for monetizing this into a porn site will happen sooner than i thought. :twisted:

When you look at numbers that porn on the web is doing then this place is a gonner for sure. I hope that never happens seriously. I still check here alot and obviously don't post much since every other topic is hijacked by someone for no other reason than to just say something negative.

It seems to be a trend on several large message boards I frequent so I don't write off this place. Each year that passes people get more comfortable behind the safe confines of their keyboards.

Fools wouldn't say 1/3 of the things they spew on the internet directly to someone's face which makes the entire phenomenon even more goofy.

Anyways please keep up the thankless work missy!
