And the Banhammer has fallen at least once. Klay has been through several times, and has even gotten Klay'd hisself. I'm still trying to stay caught up with that thread.

I think "we" ought to have a poll/contest for the Top Ten replies in that thread. There have been some doozies...

Link? The OP was banned and the thread locked up. I don't know why but I would like to pay tribute by reading the tribute thread.

I am not sure why people had to be so harsh, she was wrong for sure, but she seemed like a sweet woman.

If you can ride the length at the speed limit, without crossing the lines, without endangering other riders you are a very good rider. At the speed limit mind you, no up to the speed limit.

Finally caught up now that it's shut down. Got up this AM and LN is no more.

I didn't see the harshness, either. She was dead wrong in her advice, etc, but her reaction here was not obnoxious enough for a dogpile.
