Re: Post Bashing

I agree, there is no place on this board or any board for post bashing unless the poster writes something so insulting or outrageous that it requires a little bashing.

This board and the other goldwing boards are pretty nice in comparison to some of the other boards I have seen. When I had my FJR1300 I used a couple FJR boards and one of them was very bad about bashing, name calling and general butt headedness. Wing boards tend to be much more civilized and courteous.

Another beautiful day in paradise...another week or so and I should be able to ride again!! I cannot imagine what you Northerners go through every Winter...gets so bad, people start bashing eachother on Gold Wing forums! Even the best forum (THIS ONE) on the Internet has held several such posts! I cannot believe it!

Well, at least I have some nice chrome to go put on the trike and the VTX...now, please play nice guys...

Magenta,

I do apologize for that kind of attitude. Sometimes its a perception that doesn't transslate properly thru the cables of the Internet.

Look on the positive side. Its how this board toughens you up for the journey ahead.

Who can't ride up north??? It's gonna be 50* in Southern Indiana. Dry roads.

I just put a pair of ShowChrome lower air deflectors on last night (thank you HDL!). Gotta go knock out a Dead Kite Flyer number of miles this afternoon to test them. Later!

In our part of the country when you enter someones house and are unknown you take it easy and get to be known first. If you start spouting off about how people post and it needs to stop. Then when you read your posts and your the one doing the bashing. Something just doesn't add up. If my post has hurt your feelings I am truly sorry. You will find that during the winter months people seem to have much shorter tempers on this board. It is just the nature of the beast, not being able to ride our bikes. It has been this way on this board since it was started. If you put some thought into your posts before you let go with the key board you will find there are a lot fewer times that you either jump into the middle of something or start something. Enough said, welcome aboard the best forum on the internet!!!!!!

PMS (Parked Motorcycle Syndrome) affects every MC forum out there... I feel for the guys who have to put their rides up for the winter :shock: I couldn't ride for two days due to sleet/icy conditions... thought I was going to die.

What a delema! I want to say "Hey! I agree. Yous out there that are beating up on a guy for writting an opinion need to stop Bashing but, then, wouldn't I be bashing the bashers?! That would make me a bashing basher basher and I just couldn't live with that!

So I guess I just won't say anything.

But, wow, now I'm going to be bashed for being a whimp and not standing up for my fellow buddies and that'll make me a bashed bashing basher basher! How emabarrasing is that??!! :oops: :oops:

Even before the Internet, there were dial-up BBS's that suffered from the same "perception" problems. The solution is equally valid today as it was back in the 80's..., the number 1 rule regarding electronic postings...

"If you dont like, or agree with, what someone else has posted, simply click on NEXT..."

There's certainly no need to applogize for anything that happens here..., you MORE than do your part already... <smile>
