    What the heck is going on with Cycling Forums? Now I get responding to a thread message in my email like I always have received in the past only to click on it to find out it's some sort a "person" that has only 1 response and is instructing us on various topics, I get a lot of this, and I get a lot of Last Weeks Most Popular Topics and click on one and got sent to an ad site. Not to mention the numerous spam that is in various threads, this problem has been going on for years with Cycling Forums. I don't know if when I click on something am I getting something harmful in my computer which I have to assume may have happened or could happen if Cycling Forums can't maintain their system and keep it safe like other forums seemingly are able to do.

    So to be safe I'm going to unscribe from Cycling Forums, I hate to do this but the site has gotten very "dirty" especially over the past 6 months to maybe a year, and I don't want to take any further risks.

    So this is my farewell message to all that I've known here over the years, I just ask of you all one favor, please do not go out and have a huge party and get drunk celebrating my departure!

    Just had one a moment ago I read and it was soliciting prostitution in Istanbul! I report all I can find but not sure Admin here is doing anything.

    It’s crazy how this forum has been infected by this.

    I seem to be pretty much alone now. Delete all that I become aware of.

    You're overreacting. You should not make hasty decisions. Everything will be all right. Stay with us.
