    Yes please! Oh! That wasn't a question?

    London, England: Gas stations are running dry and a £20 limit is now in effect.

    London is plunged into panic buying as gas stations run dry. A 48 hour strike at a Scottish refinery is the camel that breaks England's back.

    This is the third thread you are posting 'panic' news articles on bcsb.

    Do we all have to go into panic mode as you are? Flo, I can see why you are posting this but plastering it all over bcsb seems useless. This is a sportbiking website. Isn't there another forum where this would be more welcome?

    oooh a strike.. how eternally devastating. This reminds me of when Rad posted up about panic buying and "shortages" following hurricane Katrina and predicting the end of the world. Surely half the gas stations since then have closed because they can't get gasoline and mass riots have broken out and chaos and hysteria have emerged.

    Haven't you terminated your internet connection so you can go live in your bunker 1 mile below the surface?

    Seriously.. stop posting ridiculous sensationalistic fear mongering bullshit that is absolutely meaningless.

    You mean the Scots are panicking...as a result of a strike at a refinery in Scotland. They brought it on themselves, this isn't the result of a lack of oil.


    Lame. Spare us the 'updates'.

    Yeah...well...don't click on it if you're not interested. Someone else might be. And I am not asking you to panic. You're big boys and this is a free country. Do whatever you please.

    I just think that some people might like to know what's going on.

    By posting sensationalist, fear-mongering news? That's very obviously what this article is.

    Stop following me around and don't click on the thread if you're not interested. This is not a force fed media; you actually have to willingly follow it and commit to spend time on it.


    It's so much worse than you thinnk

    I am not writing it;just passing it on. And it's not sensationalist and fear mongering if it's the truth. Take a look around.

    Are you the guy that's been posting all the "911 was an inside job" and "Peak Oil is Here" stickers all over my neighborhood?

    Well hey, here's another tidbit of information, even more critical than a strike at an ineffectual refinery in the UK

    Terrorists, strikers cripple Nigerian oil pipeline

    Why didn't you post that one instead? It has a far greater bearing on anything relevant to oil supplies here. But no, some pathetic strike in the perma-striking UK that'll last 4 days garners your attention because of the sensationalist headline that has less of a bearing on our well-being than the tightly coiled wad of crap I left in the toilet bowl this morning.

    How hard is it to not click on title that supposedly doesn't interest you?

    'Cause its so much more fun to complain and come up with witty responses.




    Also, the board is actually a conspiracy to undermine and censor the otherwise rebellious motorcycle community. Consider yourself 1984'd.

    Alright, time for you to switch spritzers; you're getting silly.

    I for one, enjoy Flo's 'fear mongering'. Awareness never hurt anyone. Keep your heads in the sand if it pleases you - as mentioned; Don't like it? Don't click it! Simple enough, no? (The most simple things are usually the most difficult)

    SO when we're all knocking on your bunker door, you'll at least let ME in, right Flo?

    I desire to visit bcsportbikes.com and read about everything all things involved with sportbiking. I don't need it to be ALL about sportbiking but it would be nice. Especially since the riding season has started. I don;t want to read about anything unrelated to sportbiking!

    If I desire to click on www.theworldisgoingtoend.com, www.the10thingsyouneedinyourbugoutbag.com, and finally www.howtocarry20poundbagsofricehome.com. I will then read whatever those sites have to say and I am sure they are GREAT sites.

    Come on flo.... DELETE this thread... deeeeeeeeeeleeeeeeeeeeeeeeteeeeeeeeeee

    Then why do you? Do you know that you can block me and that you never have to see anything that I post? Not even the titles? Why not do that instead of telling me what to do? It would remove Flo from your life for good.
