This really isn't the "question and answer" kind of forum. It's more of a forum where a news article is posted, the first post or two may have something to do with the news, and subsequent posts are made but generally don't go more than a reply or two deep. All other posts are Kpaul (aka The Great Motorcycle Profit, Kook, alter ego Kpual) bashing Buzglyd, Longride, Seruzawa (aka's Buz, Serusawacko, & Straightride, Shortride, collective aka's "the gang", "three musketeers", also compared to three of the seven dwarfs) and vice versa. Ultimately every posting matriculates down to how bad v-twins suck compared to inline fours, the performance/price ratio, and how stupid anyone is who bought a Harley or Ducati. Quit often posts will turn in to political arguments usually focused on peoples rights (or lack of them), Iraq, and the up coming Kerry vs. Bush election.
As far as emagazine employee's contributions to the forums, generally EBass will make a post or two to a member of the gang. Sometimes he will get angered by a post from a forum participant and make a veiled (or not so veiled) challenge to meet him in an alley where he will promptly kick your arse. While Ebass is a physically intimidating looking presence the threat is generally unintimidating as most of us live in different states and, well, being that this is a web forum, it's only an ethreat which doesn't have the same effect as, say, being hombre to hombre in a bar. JohnnyB, the true celebrity of the forum, will make a post and always generates a long list of Reply To's. Everyone likes to rub eshoulders with a celebrity. Sean makes far fewer forum posts but generally remembers he is running an emagazine people are paying for so his posts are more professional and attempts to answer critics' complaints. However, be warned that if you ever compare your riding abilities with his you will be challenged to a race where you get your bike of choice and Sean will ride a Sportster. He will gladly meet you anywhere you desire to give you the humiliating motorcycling drubbing of your life. In his defense (not that he cares or needs me defending this behavior), it is the competitor in Sean that makes him act out in this manner and not any kind of jerky personality. He seems like a nice guy. A nice guy that will humiliate you with unguilty pleasure when it comes to a riding challenge.
I'd say look for a more traditional non-emagazine type forum to discuss riding boots. Come to this forum when you want to trade insults, cycle bash, get the occasional threat of a beating (w/fists or motorcycles) and the occasional post or two related to motorcycling.
The latter comments apply to the forum. Your bike reviews, gear reviews, and ride stories are unique compared to traditional mags and informative. And I'm scared Ebass will come looking for me if I don't say something nice about the mag.
