I also think it will be worthwhile to know who was banned and the most common reason for deleting posts.


This.

Hub is mellowing, was a time when the 26 vs 29 fight discussion would have been top 5.

People have realised 29 is better so no discussion required [emoji56]

You will probably find the no. 1 reason is 'Slowbee's twitchy trigger finger' - poor guy has been on a lot of pain medication this year.

After that will come 'Baiting, Double Posting, Fraud, Deviance, CWC, etc, etc'

:eek: , talk about picking on the oke while he is down ......

 

Off the top of my head the most common reason for removing posts is language. Not the gramer cind neither, you know this kind .... &^%$ **** *&^ jou ouma *&^%

Ag, c'mon, Myles, you are the know-it-all, the bike tech specialist, the medical aider, and the weight-loss guru. If you cut back we will all be broke, fat, useless, unhealthy Trump supporters... :( # Myles 2017

(Or we'd be discussing 'The Secret' as our best method of dealing with Discovery...)


Bahahahahaha

Weight loss. As I sip on an IPA. LOL.

But fanks

Captain Fastbastard Mayhem, Dec 24 2016 03:47

You post more in one year than what I have since joining. And we're both regulars.

That said yours is often most informative and thought provoking.

Couldnt beat me on a bike, couldn't beat me on TheHub, 3-0, 2016 was a good year ;)

I blame you all for wanting updates during the races..[emoji53]

Oh and Sagan of course he is definitely to blame for a lot that I have done and said [emoji6]

Empathise with a man from the top of his head to the tips of his toes, you mean! No picking on here.

Ah, I see, banned for sophistication. So like you, Mr Snobbee! :)

3? That sounds like 2-0. At least give the Sav 'most handsome team', or something!

That's 3 ;)

Brendan definitely gets the most passionate blogger award.

I always thought that Team Savage sounds a pretty cool team name, so we can give him that one.

Blogs? Does anyone actually still read them? :whistling:

I think the team name is a better award.

I am sure you and our other Saganite has seen these but they are worth a post. Presenting Pete's Pistol for next season in Bora & WC colours............

I guess it would not be a true hub thread unless at some point Sagan and the worship of did not take centre stage ;)

Kalahari Vegmot, Dec 24 2016 09:36

Ooooooooh.... That thing is making me druelll......

I honestly don't care if his bikes take centre stage on every damn thread for years to come.

NO emoji EVER would do THAT justice
