Ive been a member for a year and this group had no rides until garrett came along. So he can make up whatever rules he wants as far as im concerned. The random ramblings and attempts to insult americans is unecessary. Its a free country. Im sure you can join another group or move to another country that is more to ur liking. No one is forcing anyone else to be here.

Hello there: i signed up for your group some time ago but have not made it to any rides as most of them seem to originate in brooklyn, which i don't, and those whose origins are closer to where i am (when in nyc) have just not been on days when i could make it, unfortunately...that notwithstanding, i have followed the meetup ideas with interest and a little envy (of those i want to go on but haven't made it) but recently, i have noticed a kind of draconian tilt to the various messages, including this latest, which is somewhat intimidating/off-putting...i say this as someone who has not been to any events, and thus perhaps could offer the perspective of a prospective or new member...i feel somehow that when i finally do make it to an event, i will have to go through security, an emissions (or is it omissions) inspection, and then someone will examine my fingernails and teeth, see if i have washed behind my ears, have accepted jesus and am wearing appropriate underwear...
i would like to suggest that, from the
