Thanks! I didn't want to leap to a conclusion that PMs are being screened, which is why I asked. I couldn't see a way of doing it without installing a pretty makor phpBB hack either.
We simply cannot be responsible for outside links, let alone to external forums. There are far easier and more appropriate methods of sending a friend a link to another forum if you are that unhappy with the goings on here (including the fictional allegations of PM moderating).
Careful with that. Links between people posting useful info are reasonable. Links to other interesting sites are reasonable. Don't back yourself into a 'no links' corner, to do so might give you some respite now but it'll backfire.
And again as I said before people are failing to see beyond the forums, its 3% of the entire Bikeradar site, by what people are saying and the amount of complaints we are getting I would think it was the only thing on here.
I certainly don't want to burn any bridges here, but there are some requirements that I have of a site I frequent. I'm sure you're the same. Prime among those requirements is that my name isn't changed for me.
The interest of all the aspects of biking is a mature subject, how about a lot of you also take on a more mature attitude?
With respect, comments like that one there aren't going to help.
