How broke do you have to be before we can pay to get someone banned?

Now this is a great idea! I met some of my closest riding buds WAY back in the days where we had Vorb Mobs in Wellington, and while I never got on board with one, the old days of the organised QCW rides were something else, judging by the pics.

And the old Hamilton trip? Ha! The "extras" reel on Addiction made that look an absolute hoot!!!

So yeah, let's get this mofo greased, oiled and back to the heady days!

Amen for the donate button, but anon.

I might also suggest killing the secret forums too.

Used to be in them, I see no point to them really. Just a thought. Though I utterly believe in the Vorbette's forum.

You believe it exists? Or that it has some intrinsic value?

Not dissing, I need to get my partner hooked up with some Vorbettes so she has someone to ride with - we're gonna be taking turns riding/baby minding for a few years now.

The first rule of the Vorbette's forum is that you don't talk about the Vorbettes' forum.

The pit actually still exists! It's just a complete frickin' NIGHTMARE to find amongst the whole channels thing...

I spent a lot of time wallowing there in the filth last week. Good times. :lol:

Yup, that idea has done it's dash. In the long run it's actually counter-productive and hurts the site and community as a whole.

Vorbettes on the other hand: Always have been, always will be, or are they? In any case: nothing changes there.

I suspect this is a boy's rule. Do you really want to know about our secret women's business?

Agreed, but my uneducated guess is that it would be a clusterf to revert?

err yes it is. The time it would take might seriously cut into my riding time. When would I find the time to fit in my stupid 14 hours-a-day brevet rides I keep get myself onto?

Anyone would think you needed to eat and sleep, Rik! There are 24 hours in a day, 14 for riding, leaves 10 for doing vorb magic ;)
