Was there supposed to be a race today?

Willie, why don’t you actually answer some of this stuff instead of hiding behind the thread delete button?

I've got no clue what's happening. Apparently someone has won 4, no make that 5 70.3 races at  90kgs in weight, but are now struggling to crack 1.30 for a HM, because they got a life coach on STRAVA and not triathlon coach on Pinterest.

Could be the last days of Trannies. 😞

Probably a good thing, site seems to be 60% oldies with axes to grind from years gone, 35% politics and lefties pushing their agenda and 5% anything useful/supportive/encouraging in regards to triathlon.

Meh! Millennials! They all want a medal.

You people are living in the past. This forum is structured so poorly it's amazing it has lasted this long. Forums and social media are all about growth and volume. 

What on earth is there on this site to attract someone new to the sport? Where is the structure of races scheduled throughout the year,-it takes someone to create a thread, a marathon/running section, a technique and drills section, a swimming section, a health and diet section? All bread and butter topics. 

There is no content to promote and encourage because too many of you are to busy being bitter and stuck in the past, living in your 'glory' days. 

And the politics and religion section should be deleted, nothing good ever comes from those topics online or IRL.

Plenty of people saw it. I think it would be best for everyone if Willie's current position was explained so 1) people don't think they're going to get taken when dealing with him and 2) what remains of Willie's reputation remains intact.

I'd like to think there is nothing malicious in what's been happening, but some sort of disclosure should be forthcoming.

Oh no, Rog is quitting 

Now who's going to explain to me how withholding aid without telling the recipient over an investigation which never happened is a quid pro quo?

Nath doesn't seem able...

Careful, can't do 'in' jokes anymore. The millennials will get hurt feelings.

Do what you like, the forum will continue to be that dive bar with a couple of old farts sitting in the corner talking about how good they used to be.. Until it gets shut down and then you will have to tell your in jokes while standing around a burning 44 gallon drum

I seem unhappy for stating the obvious and cracking a joke whilst doing so? Actually I'm pretty dam happy, and despite people like the customer wanting to drive people away I want this place to grow and thrive. 

I've been a member here for about a year and can't think of a single other newb. If you don't have new people coming in you don't need a calculator to work out what happens as the older ones loose interest and start dropping off..

While the issues that got this place here are less than ideal, never good for a person to be in a bad situation and have that amplified on social. The forum for two days got back to the good fun place it once was, with even the White Knight turning up.

There are new people, probably multiple logons though.

The people like Rog who asked for his account to be deleted will just logon as a guest and stalk, like many others or will login under another I’d and troll.

Is this what we call a philosophical circular paradigm or such?  I could say TC has just tried to claim to be a millennial, which in turn may hurt her feelings, therefore making the previous statement correct by default?

Unless you attach the link to the original thread. Then all is ok.

Yeah I'll stick my hand up there, I wasn't as cordial as usual to a newcomer that i thought was pulling the piss/trolling. Top AGer asking for noob advice... can't even remember what it was about.
