I made my comment because you said you wanted the Rossi vs Stoner "debate" to end and that the horse was dead. You never mentioned rude posts.
C'mon, you've been around here long enough to see and know exactly what my bitch was about with the R vs S debate. Both you and motogpmd are intelligent enough to know that I wasn't bitching about the GOATEE discussion. That point is nothing but splitting hairs.
I'm not arguing that Stoner and Rossi aren't the ONLY contenders for GOATEE. However, just because they are involved, doesn't mean that one is better automatically, despite the facts, just because you feel he is the golden child from ________. However, it seems that's what it's all about for some on this forum now. To me, that's exactly what FanBoi-ism is all about and exactly what MTM is known to NOT to be about. I'd looked around for many years for just the type of forum that MTM has a reputation for being. A place where it's about the bike racing and the talented pilots that astound us with their abilities. Including talk about the technology and mechanical aspects that make it all work. A place where there's not the constant drivel that you have to have chest waders or scuba gear to get through a mountain of defecation to find those 5 good posts. BTW, I don't believe that just because the petty fanboi crap happens on other websites and forums means that it's ok for it to happen here.
There's a great bunch of people here on MTM, some that have been around since the beginning with others that have joined in over the last few years of it's existence. Lets show the reason why the MTM website, and hopefully these attached forums, are where folks come to get the low down on the what's happening in MotoGP with an opportunity to discuss those matters without resorting to trashing riders or posters just because your a fan of Rider Z.
Let's get MTM back to being what it was intended to be again. We don't need the, as Zaphod so perfectly put it, third grade attitude. Let's leave that for the other forums, etc.
One last thing, if you see a post that you feel isn't appropriate, click the little white triangle icon with the red exclamation point in it. The moderators will then look to check the post. It's your forum, if you see something that's inappropriate, let them know instead of just ignoring it. Sometimes it ruins a thread if they have to try and edit/weed out something that's been there awhile vs when it first appears. I'll continue to do that as well as suggesting the Stoner VS Rossi, the never ending debate as a place to take discussions I feel are only about them and not real facts or true discussion. I'm sure that if I'm out of hand with it or overstep the boundaries and guidelines that I'll be quickly reminded so by the powers that be on MTM.
I'll not comment here again about the S vs R item and let the topic discussion return.
