  1. Friends, it's been fun, but the chapter has come to a close. I enjoyed GB, but it's time to move on. Aloha.

      Very sad. Take care AF, I apologize if I am one who drove you away. Your insight was some of the most valuable here and I wish you the best.

  2. Honestly, if IOC members every visited these boards in the past, they sure as heck don't anymore. There's virtually nothing worth reading.

      There probably wouldn't be too much for them to get interested in until a major Olympic bid gets under way! That's the only real time when the boards come to life!

      Well, if you didn't declare independence and become a republic you could be watching the CWGs with the rest of us.

  3. The joy is gone from these boards. The newbie pollution is more than I can take. There's a real lack of intelligent, reasoned, respectful conversation and I'm over it.

      fascist messaging system cut off the complete reply and the funniest joke.

      Newbie pollution? That's a pretty vile turn of phrase. These forums are a joke and it's not only because of newbies.

  4. There is no such thing as a "shoe in." It is spelled "shoo-in."

      +1. Not the first time you've pointed that out either is it?!

  5. I'm starting to wonder if my Olympic love is waning because I've OD'd on Gamesbids.

      I had the same thought in the lead up to London. I never really followed anything Olympics unless it was in the news so it very rare when a mention came up. After joining the forums its an everyday thing.

  6. I just have to ask, "why?" I really don't get it.

  7. Anyone notice how a certain "newbie" suddenly thought better of his profile pic (the word "deleted") and interests ("banned members")?

      Are you a stalker? You behave and act like a stalker. FYI, I had 'Deleted Account' in the interests space which is why people did not notice :)

  8. He's baaa-aaaaaaaack........
