    That's exactly what we'd expect the Dark Cabal of Volunteers to say....

    I thought this was a totally reasonable question -- I certainly don't see why a team captain had to publicly blame his teammate for bringing it up privately. And though I would have booted the person who was late to join if I was in charge, I'm not in charge and I didn't put in any work other than riding my bike. I also don't think anyone can blame the Dark Cabal – well, except maybe AlanA – for its decision.

    More importantly, and as someone who takes every "competition" way too seriously: Who cares?!

    I'm pretty sure Rule 5 is in effect here.

    These are not the droids you're looking for.

    Except that Rule 1 trumps Rule 5: Obey the Rules. But apparently they're aren't any so there's no Rule 5 to be in effect!

    The Rules are the rules. This isn't 'Nam. The Rules supersede any BAFS anarchy. Or so I was told by some other cabal.

    If I'd known there was cheating, I would have joined.

    Come for the cheating, stay for the fun!

    I'd say it's worth it. I joined because I was doing 90 miles a week anyway so why not, but now it's more like 130. That's like a 40% bonus just for clicking a few links and filling in some information.

    But we didn't get a real winter this year so who knows what it would be if we did.

    But it feels like March is trying, though, right? Like a student who didn't study all year, cramming for the final.
    But, alas for that student, it doesn't quite work that way.

    Some of us expat midwesterners might be inclined to say we almost never get a real winter here.

    I appreciate the kidding and I don't know most of you--so I'm sorry if I've stepped on anyone's toes. I wanted to know what happened. The explanation makes perfect sense and I understand the decision, even if I might not agree with it. It should be ok to ask a question without being told we're whining.
