    You think anything in this game is "official"? Didn't Steve O say something like it had all the organization of a game of pick-up tag?

    As assistant keeper of the back end, don't you already get to unilaterally impose rules that everyone else is required to follow?

    Volunteer needed to maintain the sticky

    Amalitza, who maintained the sticky at the top of the Freezing Saddles topic last year, will be unable to do so this year. Is anyone willing to take over that job?

    I'm hardly freaking out about the loss of the biking benefit. I've already pointed out that compared with the other horrors in the bill, it's trivial. All I said was that saying that of course the...

    I would argue that it should. We already subsidize driving, because we allow emissions that we then need to find a way to clean up. Road construction is also more necessary for cars than for bikes,...

    So far, the vast majority of dockless bikes I've seen have been parked in appropriate places. And I've found I'm actually using dockless bikes, even though I never used CaBi, because I don't have to...

    Well, if getting rid of the bicycle commuting benefit causes people to become less healthy, they will deal with that by eliminating the deduction for medical expenses. So it's all good.

    So, does anyone have any thoughts about using dockless bikes outside of DC? I know you are not supposed to take them out of the city, although some companies don't discuss the issue at all and others...

    Well, dang, we obviously have to go with the system that makes Casual Six win! And I'm not even slightly influenced in that view by having been their captain.

    But didn't you pick the members of that team based on their riding the most? Allowing them to be a Freezing Saddles team doesn't seem like it's going to work.

    Is there any way to update the forum software, and incorporate the anti-spam measures I mentioned? Having an army of volunteers to get rid of the spam after it's posted seems rather inefficient.

    Yep, current version allows for Google reCAPTCHA, honeypot, and Akismet. If you activate all three, you can pretty much eliminate spam. But not updating for four years is rather an issue, since...
