See, phd, they're listening to you (or you chose the wrong destination).

There's still hope for the rest of us.

NO Snowboards Allowed!

NB, I don't actually dislike snowboarders, I dislike asshats. You can be a skier and act like one too.

I'd get rid of all the snowboarders Although I must say, they seem to be dwindling in numbers, at least the places I have been recently.

BTW - how do you red rep someone? I see how to do the groans, but is red repping different?
You have to use the little 'scales of justice' icon in the upper right hand part of each post

I saw an animated gif on the internet and didn't think of any of you.

I'm just waiting for him to present an actual argument.
If you "can be bothered reading non-informative posts" then what are you waiting for? Some more posts not to read??? Quite intelligent way of thinking you haver there....

I presented enough arguments for you, I am not going to repeat myself. If you can't/ won't read them that is YOUR PROBLEM. If you want to be ignorant it is your choice.

You all seem to be fixed on the "mirror incident" (while I have my reasons, I don't see yours) and ignore anything else. And you haters did is make assumption w/o knowledge of what happened. Oh, wait you bikers NEVER make mistakes, sorry I forgot that.

Interesting that I raised quite a few issues in my posts but you only seem to address the only one you prefer.

Almost all pro filterers here admitted (one way or the other) that filtering can become dangerous. Then why should we encourage this by legalizing it???

Anyway as someone else has mentioned: we need organ donors so might be a good thing.

Also you yourselves admitted filtering is to the expense of vehicles behind. Why should I even wait 1 minute more than I have to? Do you want some extra privileges or what?

The comparison with overtaking slower cars is just plain STUPID. Overtaking and filtering are quite different.

Why? Are you also made up by some people seeking power and control?
The way I think about GOD as defined by religion, I would not take that as a compliment.

I don't agree. You have argued your opinion. Not presented good arguments based on real facts. Sadly, any real life evidence or information is lacking from your own biased thoughts on the subject.

But as you say, you are messing with us.

If it's so much fun then why are you handing out bad reputaion? Do you always throw the toys out when people disagree with you? Let's face it, there's plenty of people in this thread that disagree with you. Will you find time to give them all bad rep?

Grow up.

I disagree

I gave you reasons. I did not see any evidence in this thread yet.

I think that the minor point is that the athmosphere here is kind of strange (is it normal that veterans behave like this?), and that a user can or actually does get a bad reputation,

the funny thing is that bikers or their promotors here really confirm all stereotypes people got from them. And I doubt this in the bikers' interest. But maybe I got that wrong.

Cheers

I agree. However we could also say 'should non-veterans behave like this?'. I have not handed out any bad rep so I wonder why the others do this? I enjoy the points made by everyone even if I dont agree with them but then isn't that what this forum is about? It seems to me that some people are taking themselves and their opinions to seriously.

Now, would someone like to get the thread back on topic?

There was a topic? Where? There was a glimmer of one early on, but it was long gone by page 2....
