I know I'm not the only one banned from the Slowtwitch forums. Let's hear your stories.

    I'm not, but I don't go there much really... I would love to hear the story of how to get banned though. Also, is this a challenge?

    There are two surefire easy ways to get the ban-hammer from ST:

    1.) Use the word "retarded," well, ever. (Personally, I'm OK with that policy. Long story.)
    2.) Falsely accuse someone of being a doper with approximately zero proof.

    I am not banned from Slowtwitch, which I think is due to my high tolerance for idiocy. I mean, I did work retail for a decade...you become tolerant.

    I posted a photo of a chubby Tara Costa from the Kona broadcast (she was "The Biggest Loser" celebrity entry that year...and she's a stone-cold fox now) while mid-stride in a thread entitled "Are people who do Ironman good athletes". Obviously, I was arguing to the negative.

    Yes, I realize that makes me an asshole.

    But does that make me wrong?

    Did they lock your up address or something? I should be banned from that site. What a time suck

    I'm curious as to what I'd have to do to get banned from this forum.

    @KMRyanTri Im pretty confident the only way to get banned is to hurt @AaronWebstey feelings.. (he can be sensitive sometimes.)

    @KMRyanTri, if you confess to drafting in order to win a race and then offer to let all of Blowsnitch a chance to ask you questions about it, they may let you back in. Of course you won't have to actually answer any questions just talk around it.

    I am generally not an asshole on that forum. I don't post much, actually. Have posed a lot of training questions in the past. Last post I was arguing in defense of marijuana.

    Keep in mind that ST can wind up being a promotional tool to drive people to the TRS stuff (e.g., it was an effective discussion tool during the IMF analysis). And hey, if we can prove to people that it's a more worthwhile experience to come hang here, it's a ripe ground for people who hate-read both there and Beginner Triathlete.

    plus, when the bs of ST gets so boring, I come here for fun conversation that isn't rehashing the same question again. Plus here, there are very few rules. I'm sure even @KMRyanTri would find it hard to be banned from this forum.

    @Dark_Mark I called a CBC radio phone-in to register my disgust with testing for weed in sports (it was in regards to the Ross Reglibiati ordeal), back in my pro days. Seems like such horse shit to test for a lifestyle drug.

    As for getting banned, this ain't that kinda party as far as I know. And if it is that kinda party, I'm stickin' my dick in the mashed potatas.

    PS we all hate the r-word. Is it really auto-ban without a warning? I was in a lab once, late in the evening on a research ship with tensions running high and a few beers flowing. A senior tech who has a kid with Down's endured about 5 minutes of the r-word being tossed around, before saying "gentlemen. The use of the word 'retarded' is both insensitive and unnecessary. I am offended". I'll bet none of those guys ever say it again.

    @AaronWebstey it used to get tossed around, Dan made his views pretty clear. Use since his declaration day, so to speak, has resulted in the auto-ban.

    I personally enjoy the absolute love-fest for anything made by Cervelo or Zipp.

    That said, BT is way more of an asshat-magnet, IMO.

    What's BT?

    Beginner Triathlete. AKA the place where you can't make fun of anybody, can't complain much about race organizations, and ask dumber questions than in the Ironman Chattanooga Facebook group.

    @rrheisler I just popped my head in over at the BT forum... 1) I foresee myself having a shit ton of fun laughing at them for the next few hours. 2) The legit first discussion I saw was "Shirt for a race I didn't do" and the response was "never wear it on top.. but you can wear it as a base layer." What the actually fuck??? If you're not an idiot that shirt is now a nice rag for bike cleaning. @AaronWebstey can we get an automated reply for "Don't ask stupid questions."? something similar to !beer ? and last but not least 3) I saw several people complaining of blisters and how to treat... four to be exact before I said out loud "Don't be such a pussy.. thats how you treat them" so I know @HSeeley14 would be proud of that lol

    @_MurMan the problem, too, is that none of them ask the more important question: how do I prevent them in the future? Which is to say, stop running in shitty socks and go get a real shoe fit.

    Those kinds of posts earned me one-week vacations from BT.

    Vacation?! :)) too funny. yeah, I read through some of the responses and I now feel a little dumber for having done that.. But I must say its not all bad but the bad ones are brutal and equally hilarious! Not that I know a lot but I can figure out what to do with a race shirt and how to deal with a blister..

    I pulled out of Challenge Rancho Cordova last year with a knee issue (and massive burnout), but wear the shirt all of the time. Why? Because fuck WTC.

    Which is an excellent segue into talking about WTC killing races. The existence of Challenge Rancho Cordova is why Lake Tahoe had a 70.3 this year.

    If @KMRyanTri runs without a shirt on he just may be TRS Racing's favorite pro.
