    Hey, can someone check to see if you can post in the old boards?

    Please? Some how the old boards got turned off yesterday pre-maturely. We wouldn't close the old boards without telling you when.

    Can someone please post in the old forums?

    Old forums will be offline next Tuesday evening.

    Nice thread dredge by the way. It may qualify as last of 2015.

    Actually at the time of removal it was almost entirely softcore porn only occasionally with a bicycle (frequently a huffy) in the background. Politically correct had nothing to do with it...It ceased having anything to do with cycling, or Liz Hatch, podiums, or even riding a bike. It was just a den of drooling monkeys posting porn.

    As someone who used to post to PG, and was there almost 'til the very end... yeah, that's pretty much it. At first it was actually a pretty cool forum, no porn, general respect and admiration for the cycling female species... but it then degenerated as a certain cadre of 'creepy' misogynistic posters came in, who would post things like, "oooh yeah, I'd love to disappoint HER in bed."

    Postings gradually became more explicit, and there was also some posting of girls who may or may not have been underage. Yeah, I know... blargh.

    Last straw was some female bicycle journalist who came into the forum and basically read everyone the riot act... the misogynist camp of posters responded exactly as you think they would, and soon thereafter, BOOM, no more PG. I think a concerted effort by a number of longtime Lowngers also contributed towards getting PG ashcanned.

    Eh, anyway, it was interesting Internet experiment gone awry.

    Yes, it degenerated a bunch of scantily clad women and crude comments. It was not "porn" as it had no nudity nor simulated sex acts.

    Many found it offensive, thus it was removed. In today's world political correctness requires removal of offensive material...and that is not always a bad thing.

    Regardless, I do agree that it no longer had a place.

    That was not strictly true once PG 'went rogue', as it did near the end.

    Rumplestiltskin? Did you mean Rip Van Winkle?
