making yourself known as a busybody fool by posting such pointless
nanny state ideas. Your own life must be pathetically sad and empty if this
is the best thing you can come up with to post on an internet forum.
Don't worry about my reputation. I'll be just fine.
For the last three+ years I've been involved in motorcycle advocacy in NY. (NYMSTF.org
) Our group has lobbied the city (NYC) and state (NY) on behalf of motocyclists. I've met with the community boards in NYC to promote motorcycle issues so many times that eventually I was asked to become a member of their board.
So, you could say I'm a bit more interested in this issue than some people.
If you're not interested in this issue, feel free to find another thread to ramble in. It's a free country. Busy-bodies like you shouldn't be telling anyone else what they can and cannot talk about, anywhere they damn please.
