|ASK WNYMBA: forum|

The Forum is an open forum for people to discuss mountain biking in WNY. Although there are some moderation guidelines it is open to anyone who wants to post, so like most forums, it can accumulate BS. It has been suggested that it be open to WNYMBA members only and this is an issue of constant discussion within WNYMBA. There are pros and cons of both. It would probably be a dead forum if open to only WNYMBA members. And WNYMBA members can sometimes be the ones posting BS. Howevr, you are right, some of the most prolific posters are not members. Of the top 15 posters all time to the forum, 6 are not members of WNYMBA, including the second-most-frequent poster.
The most important thing to remember is that the forum does not represent the views of WNYMBA and no official information about the club is posted there. The website itself (as opposed to the forum) is where to get the news and goings-on about WNYMBA. You are not the only one to whom the BS is annoying. For such a situation, I suggest sticking to the website itself to get news and information, and ignore the forum.
