Default Why MO 2.0 is failing.

I agree I am geeky as the next guy.. The old MO was like someone said the community hall the local fishing hole etc. MOs problem wasn't the web site style.. It was the lack of timely motorcycle content.. The forums were active because of the community/small town feel... In fact the forum carried the MO fans through a couple of lean years of content.. I think you can see that one site ran by an ex-MO editor is on the right track.. Simple clean format, fresh content, Staff Moderators only for the format. Yes Gabe learned a lot while he was here. The constant censorship shows a total lack of tolerance of diversity of thought which is a disaster for a forum.. (small minds are in control here)

Trolling again? You were doing so well.

Let me guess, the next two weeks you'll get more and more paranoid, troll more and more, and than you'll get banned again.

Not trolling.. Just hate what MO has become... The forums are run by bullies of the GPTB.. any point made contrary to their opinion is wiped out. Not my idea of good forum.. "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." (Edmund Burke) "A leader like me has to stand up to tyranny no matter the consequences including banishment " (kpaul)

I'm telling you now, that is inaccurate and false.

If you do not like the new format, that is one thing. But the moderators do not target you.

If you have been edited or deleted from a thread that means you went extremely off topic or were trolling.

Apart from that you were asked to take a link to another motorcycle site off of your sig, which would be asked of any member.

Calm down and straighten up.

Thumbs down how can someone be so bad at something ...

yeap
no more motorcycle.com
they've killed it.
it sucks.
there aren't any words that express my feelings towards the guys that run MO now and the the new "look & feel".
it looks cheap and it feels chepear ..
and that's not a easy thing to acomplish.

the content doesn't help either ...
no more articles that deserve the time waised trying to find them.

Post count looks to be declining. Not much for me here anymore after 2 months.

Good luck with that!

I believe if you take out the KPaul flame wars off the old site post counts, the post counts here are actually up. At least the people that come here actually post and read about motorcycles. What a concept!
