This is a little test of the potential for "threaded" replies.  I chose to reply to entheo's post who in turn had quoted Dale's post.  It'd be cool if my reply gets indented so as to make it obvious I had replied to his post without having to quote it.

I was disappointed that I could not alter the Subject line which appears to be fixed as a reply to the original topic post.  Too bad.

Let's see what happens ...

Nope.  Didn't work as my reply to his post just gets added to the heap.  Too bad.  I really miss the "threaded" view feature offered on one of the earlier iterations of the Velonews forum software.  I've never seen it anywhere else and I found it to be really handy in following thread drift as replies were indented using an outline format.

Looks like using the "Quote" feature is as close as we can get.

Just thought you'd all like to know that as of this afternoon, flicker and 7tdf are still over talking to themselves. I couldn't quite count all of the spammers that had logged on just today, but I'd estimate it at several hundred (flicker included....)

Did Velonews.com get rid of the forums? I was at the site and the forum tab is gone.

Yeah, the Velonews staff e-mailed Keith and told him they are gone. (For a bit, they were still there after the tab was removed, but I think it is all gone now.)

Well, there you have it. As many have surmised, the forum was viewed by VN as their bastard child, and with almost everyone leaving, including the moderators, that was the final piece in the puzzle that allowed them to kill it off. Too bad in a way, I spent many an hour there and learned a lot. Thanks to those here that pushed for an exodus BEFORE they killed it off. The only thing that I am nervous about is the possibility of the 'gang of four' showing up here now that their sandbox has been emptied....

RIP to the Velonews forum. I was a member for years and it's sad to have seen it go under the way it did.

Amen brother.

I keep expecting to see the spork of Lance spamming away here every time I log on. I can but hope that somebody, anybody has moderator privileges and the ability to block by IP. As Keith said someplace - this place is like a new house - don't want to see the walls to get dinged and the floor scuffed just yet.

By the way, if someone can walk me through the process for posting an avatar, I'd greatly appreciate it.
