    the new thread rule and the captcha on the search on this site are absolutely annoying.

    probably only because of your age

    THINGS do get annoying to some as they get close to 100 years old

    you should just be happy that you can still ride the motor bike THING !!!

    Bet it's even more annoying trying to stow your walking frame on a Motored Bike;they didn't think of that either.

    That's the thing when u FIRST join a forum;any forum(rules are rules)....either u abide by them as they are or go somewhere else at your leisure....OR,u change the rules via internal member support.
    Tom is the owner of this website & he's NOT adverse to new ideas,that's why we have a Suggestion Box(and it works to)
    Established rules,your decision.

    "22. to put or impose (something or someone) forcibly on or upon a person: to force one's opinions on others."

    no, but I was forced to do this happy feely touchy love-in first user post just to ask a question. I couldnt think of a more suitable "first post" then a very simple one expressing what a waste of time and energy that it was.

    Welcome aboard, altarr.

    Okay, we get it. You feel that an intro post is an unnecessary waste of time.

    But was it really all that hard to do? Was it really so bad that you felt it necessary to make your introduction to us a defiant complaint about being "forced" to say hi to the group?

    To be a bit more clear; I didn't think that your first post was particularly offensive, just unimportant. But when you got a few answers saying, "C'mon...lighten up....", that's what you should've done.
