Gas bus rants under Sydney/NSW

Postby Tonymercury » Sun Jun 08, 2008 6:23 am

I am getting increasingly annoyed that when following any thread that mentions gas buses in the Sydney area there always seems to appear a monstrous and very repetitive rant between pro and anti gas bus supporters. Once is OK, but its really getting boring.

Would it be possible to have a sticky entitled "post gas bus rants here" and ban them elsewhere?

Also in the same section we seem to have re-visited the debate on wether it is O500LE or OC500LE. This is also getting out of control.

Abit difficult to police this one .Are we going to say you can't talk about this now, you can't discuss that anymore?You can always put your two cents worth as a reply if you don't like the repetitive discussion or,of course ,simply skip the topic and read something else.
MAN SL200 & Mercedes 0 305:essentially the same bus.
Brisbane: SL200, Sydney 0305, Canberra both, Melbourne SL200, Hobart neither, Adelaide both, Perth 0305, Parramatta Ryde SL200 :P

But the problem is that, say a thread on actual bus delivery in Sydney descends into the usual rants mixed in with interesting posts! Thread drift, as always a problem.

I have no problems skipping the threads such as the one regarding the nomenclature of O500s - the heading gives it away.
