because this is nsmb
a big peanut gallery that dissects everything posted looking for something to bitch, complain and criticize.
Sorry to disappoint you, Dave - but I can remember a time when it was possible to complain and criticize on this very forum.
When the users had decent, sometimes difficult, arguments going - and it was all done in a well-written, and usually, honest way.
Tell me, Dave, has the forum on nsmb gone the way of everything else these days - the way of finding everything cool and worthwhile and whatnot?
What has happened to grown-ups discussing things in a civilized manner?
What has happened to riders, builders and professionals who would probably not have supported certain images, say, 4 years ago?
Have they all "grown up" - refusing to still look closer and stand by an opinion, and not follow a trend, or give in because it is easier?
This is not nsmb as I remember it from the beginning ten years ago. This is turning into a pinkbike for grown-ups in cubicles.
