Am I missing something, or is it no longer possible to comment on new articles? I see there are a few comments from people at the end of the new article on the HyperStrada, but no link to a thread on the article for the usual banter.

Is that by design? Seems to me the best motorcycle-related forum content was in the threads linked to the articles.

No post

It looks like the administrator no longer posts links to articles asking for comment. You can comment at the end of an article using Disqus or a social networking entity.

Disqus disqusts me. So, after many long years, it seems I must finally abandon MO.

It's been real, fellas!

It does suck. Not to beat a dead horse, but again, the threads linked to articles always had the most interesting m/c related material.

Another point: a unique and invaluable capability of this media vs. print is/was the reader's ability to interact with the writers in real-time. Clarifications, additional facts, the occasional correction all came out of that.

If that's now limited to short two-sentence brain farts ala FB, Twitter, etc., something valuable has been lost.

The race to the lowest common denominator continues. The same "corporate-think" factors that have driven TV to even lower depths than ever imagined (reality shows and endless repeats of "Law & Order") are at work on the internet too. Social networking sites are used to elicit private info which is then used to send you spam, junk mail and telemarketing calls. Now MO has joined The Borg.

I just looked at the ZX-14 review, and there is a 'Reader Feedback' button that takes you to the Forum page.
Perhaps the Duck review writer forgot to add a button to the page?

Give me some input displaced MOfos.

I can get a message board up and running in short order. It would not be affiliated with any one site.

We could post links and flame away.

Very little moderation and old school MO flame wars would be encouraged.

What do you think?

My life would be incomplete without the frequent insults, lies, and general ill-will I enjoy here. Since the management seems to want us to "move along" (and who wouldn't with folks like "vroooom" standing in the wings?) I say set 'er up and let's see what happens.

I just registered motorcycleflamewars dot com

I'm not sure how long it will take my friend to set it up.

He's usually pretty quick about things.

This could be hilarious like the old days of The Highwayman and Mr. All Caps

I'm in, but only if Ken promises to call me racist for praising the outcome of the Treaty of Westphalia and for preferring to eat my Oreos undunked.
