Default Don't know if I'm talking out of turn here??

But I gotta say, the 100% facebook group is crap.

I guess it's what you (the group members) make of it?

Or do you mean official posts by the mag?

I suspect he means the constant posts by delicate flowers moaning about alleged sexism; inability to appreciate robust banter and Safety Nazism....

TBH, I gotta agree with you fella.
The trouble is the mods have got a shitter of a time deciding who's gonna be a twat aqnd who's not.

Its just like a million other facebook biker sites, seems to be an awful lot of women posting on there, wonder if they somehow feel "safer" on there ...... do the people who post on there actually know that this site exists?, do they actually go anywhere other than Facebook?

I totally agree
I left the group around a week ago. I'm not a great FB fan but decided to join to give Blue my support. But just recently I found myself just going on there to cause trouble and pick arguments with the idiots that frequent it..(which is not like me really...lol)
It wasnt fun and I was irritated every time I went on there. So Ive left, Ive explained to Blue and she understands completely.
This place has always been good for me, the folks on here are friends and some I've known almost 15 years now... It'll do for me...

I'm glad someone can see that - I'm one of those mods and believe me, we're damned if we do and damned if we don't!

On top of that, we have to behave when we're on there so I have to go elsewhere to be rude to people!

Forums (fora? That doesn't seem right) suit some people and the Facebook group setup suits other people. It's a nightmare trying to keep an eye on both and Dusty's right - a lot of it is a judgement call. It's got very big very quickly - from 2000 people when I took it on to close to 13000 and there's always going to be a few problems along the way. A lot of it is settling down, but it is a lot more rapid fire than here and is close to a 24/7 job.

I come here for a bit of peace!

Just went over to FB and searched it, there seem to be a few 100%biker pages of sorts but the magazine logo one seems to have lots of intersting trikes and sidecars etc on it. Think it is rather interesting myself - more so than rest of facebook :- most people will ignore this, share to show you give a crap, guilt trip bolllox, yeah, click 'like' enough and it will cure cancer and give rise to world peace. Send me that link or farmville request 1 more time I'll unfriend you more like.

Cheers sir - I have to admit, I enjoy doing the daily posts on the 'official' 100% Facebook page and I've not got onto the really random stuff yet!

I spend a lot of time on both and I'm admin on 4 FB pages, it's not a case of whether FB suits me but whether the 100% FB page suits me - and it doesn't really because I agree with people on here who've said it should be custom bikes only, and not a place for beginners to ask silly questions or girls (even if they have or pretend to have a bike) to post pictures of themselves, or anyone to post any other cr@p.

Nuff said, I'm dropping it now cos I really don't want to go on about it.

I am disappointed with the lack of Monty Python knowledge amongst the members of the 100% Biker Page on facebook. I asked "Are there any women here today.... ?" and then sat back and awaited a Python fest of epic proportions.

I might as well have watched the England game and been less disappointed....

Snigger....

Facebook (in general) is full of self entitled people who can't believe that not everything they read on the Internet is true.

Complaints by one person about something most people agree is nonsense escalate in to Witch Hunts.

Hate the place.

I must say that I think the opposite is true, the forum has become pretty much dead since FB is far easier to keep tabs on and more lively...
