Yeah, but apart from the Forum what have the Romans ever done for us?

I seem to remember one about QR skewers being locked (if not deleted) - and from what I remember it was no surprise. And there have been some "directly" or "angry" words about other cycling related issues (on this forum and from the CTC - remember Tooeys personal attack on PB ?)

It's not the subject matter that can cause issues as much as people managing to behave in a reasonable manner.

The "Inclusive Cycling Board" set up at the request of National Office was deleted when the forum admin team deemed it had not met the aims stated for it on launch. AIUI National Office raised no objection to that action.

Much of the content was redistributed around relevant forum boards but not all of it, I can't confirm that any "cycling" content was lost.

Thanks. Yes, I'm aware. The new user has been advised how to progress the situation.

I try to steer clear of contentious issues like QR skewers.... That's just asking for trouble
