One More Time!!!! I have a reason for being so flakey, but it's off topic!!!
Brian and Members,
I for one, hope you will remain a contributor to the List!!
I'm not certain what specific instances you may have been referring regarding offending anyone, but as been so often stated, "the delete button is there for a purpose...."
Opinions from members should be welcome, but when opinions vary "off track" it becomes the duty of the members to point this out. Failing that, we have the Listmaster, who does an incredible job in so many aspects related to the List, who is swift to point out the discretion!
I would like to know specifically about, "Those who seek to mask their wrongdoing and manipulating of the system......" If I am being "manipulated," I would like to know about it, who is doing it, and if possible why?
If we are able to establish a "foundation" of facts, they will not be, by definition, OPINIONS.
But as Bertrand Russell said (something like this anyway..) "Truth, while seemingly easy to grasp and understand, is in reality, the most difficult of things to prove..."
Stick around Brian, I believe what you have to say (about Bicycles) is closer to the truth than most of us will read about, or experience!!!
