other forums just not as cool!!!!!!!

Id just like to see if anyone else has had similar BAD experiences on other forums..Im so happy that people are grown up in this forum and most are very willing to help and welcome the newcomers!!! I was part of a forum that rhymed with 1000 shmar shmar.met for years and although there were a lot of cool people...there were also a lot of really annoying people that constantly wanted to make fun of people and start arguments...dont get me wrong a friendly argument every once in a while is healthy in the forum life but this was every other thread and usually the same annoying guys...always made newbies feel stupid for asking questions and would rather tell people to search than just answer a question that would take 2 seconds..


anyways....glad to be here!!!!!

Re: other forums just not as cool!!!!!!!

Glad to have you here and yes a lot of other forums are more towards the chirlish side of people's nature rather than the mature side of them.
aboard the good ship .Org !

Re: other forums just not as cool!!!!!!!

This is the best forum I have found for 'tone'. There are several out there which are full of keyboard heroes who, like you say, just want to start virtual fights. Seems pointless to me.

Re: other forums just not as cool!!!!!!!

Just signed on to BCsportbikes.com.
Not too impressed.
Was just looking for some ppl around the area so when I do get a bike again, I could see who and how many are out there to ride with.
There was a topic on "safety techniques" while approaching a car waiting to do an L-turn into traffic, written after the fatality on marine drive a little while back.
Anywho I posted my opinion, stating it was my opinion and my own experience, and just got pinned to the wall about it.
Wasn't terribly impressed. but like Des says (that rhymes! ) just a bunch of keyboard heroes trying to project their ways and thought process onto others to justify their superiority complex....
This .Org has been a daily pleasure for me for the last year, and thats why I became a supported. I feel like I'm part of something here...its a great feeling

I feel the most alive when I am close to death....

Re: other forums just not as cool!!!!!!!

im glad to hear im not the only one who has seen this behavior...i thought maybe i was alone in my views! I am also planning on becoming a supporting member within the next month..im selfish..i spent it all on my bike and now i gotta wait to give support soon though!!!!

ive actually read some fights between people where they were telling each other their addresses and urging them to come to their house so they could kick their a**....i was thinking..r u serious?!?!?!?! all over who thinks they have the better exhaust advice!!!!! lol sad sad world...this is by far the best forum and offers people the most help and I am glad to be a part of it and offer my expertise!!

Re: other forums just not as cool!!!!!!!


You're right CBR Guy This is a little place of solace.

I can make a complete tool of myself here and people seem to recognize that's it's another human having human issues. No one berates me for having an opinion that might not slide perfectly into some other person's version of the way things "should be".

All is good.

hmmm I never noticed Godsmacked, but back on topic, this forum is top notch, I used to be on a sports forum and I finally signed off because of all the ridiculous fighting between a few of the subscribers, no respect for each other----not like the mighty .org!!!!

Re: other forums just not as cool!!!!!!!

i think its one thing to have an opinion but its quite another to be so egotisitical to beliee that it is the only RIGHT opinion...Liek i usually tell people to stay away from the two brothers exhausts on the 08+ blades but thats only because i know they mess up the idle and performance in the low to mid rpms...but some people dont care about that type of still on a bike that already makes 160hp so amybe they want a 2 bros...and on some other forums people would get FLAMED and ridiculed for even having a two bros on their bike or recommending it because of the nice sound...

not being sexist at all because im all for women in power and rights for everyone...but usually women are a little more drama oriented and that is exactly what some of these other forums reminded me of.......90 women in a room.. all fighting over one guy P.S. im all for women riders, women in the military, women mechanics, fat women, skinny women, young women, old women...so any women please dont take this as an insult!!!

Not to worry! All the women here are bright enough to know exactly what you mean. Old fashioned hen party. Yikes!

I went to one of those too and lasted about four pages. The Kwaka 250 forums (many) seem to have a lot of good people and I'm wondering if it's because the mini-ninja is just not thought of as the macho bike so the guys who ride them don't have so many willy-replacement issues.

I guess it's best to stick with what you know eh?
