    Not strictly true. I’ve just looked at his history; of the fifteen threads he’s started, only nine of them start “WTD:”

    I think this should have been on the caption competition thread.

    Nah, the prize isn’t a £7000 wonder bike, not worth it.

    Wonder if the OP does the euromillions when its ‘only £20mill’ rather than 95?

    NOT LAME

    I’m with STW on this one.

    The pub analogy above is spot on. If you don’t like the beer, drink somewhere else.

    if a pub offers free beer, and someone, who’s mate bought him a drink, starts shouting round and outside the pub how ‘lame’ the free beer is, how long will the landlord/owner/resident grumpy put up with it?

    Exactly.

    I’m not a subscriber, so feel free to disregard. Reading between the lines maybe the OP was a bit OTT with the comment, no real need to post anything negative – if you don’t like the competition then don’t enter.

    Assuming that’s the entire correspondence between STW and the user, then IMO STW’s response was a little OTT too – essentially politely telling him his subscription is cancelled and forcing a refund on him wasn’t the best way of handling it. A polite reply would have sufficed, and saved this thread from existing and any bad publicity that comes from it.

    I wonder which of the competitions I entered were considered lame. I better not enter any more just in case I’m labeled lame.

    Again. 😳

    An email exchange with singletrack after I commented on a tuesday treats that the prizes were getting “lamer”

    Hi XXXX,

    I’ve deleted your comment on our Tuesday treats giveaway story because it’s frankly rude.

    The prizes are offered up for free by bike shops. There’s a very real cost behind all the prizes and although this week’s prize may not be to your taste I don’t think that gives you the right to post your rather insulting comment on the story. Tuesday treats happens every week and entry is exclusively for subscribers like yourself. Entry is optional and I expect that you would be hard pressed to find any other magazine in the world that works as hard to provide free prizes every week to its subscribers. If you don’t like this weeks prize then I’m sure there will be one along in the next few weeks that you do like. Either way, no need for your comment, so it’s been removed.

    Cheers

    XXXX

    Hi XXXX,

    Firstly, there was nothing to take offence about in my post, it was clearly my own opinion and more importantly valid. I admit I could have used the term cheaper, poorer or less desirable but I felt the term “lamer” far more succinct in expressing my views of a prize that you value at a laughable £260 (far better accredited courses are available cheaper) and be lets be honest the quality of the prizes has markedly declined over time. Do you disagree?

    Secondly, as you have stated I am a subscriber. I subscribed (at considerable expense, being the most expensive mtb magazine available) to a mountain bike magazine, not a sustainable transport magazine, not a cyclocross magazine, not a government initiative magazine or a lefty quinoa munching knit your own sandles magazine so please do inform me what place this article has on a “mountain bike magazine” website?

    Thirdly, you state “The prizes are offered up for free by bike shops”, so this has nothing to do with the massive advert attached to the tuesday treats article? Not a tax dodge for advertising, you’d definitely be writing that article, because everyone is so interested in what bobs bikes has just cobbled together for its last punter… please!

    Cheers

    to me

    XXXX,

    Our records show that your sub was bought for you as a gift.
    I’d like to refund you the remainder of your subscription.
    If you have a Paypal account we will happily deposit the remaining value of your sub in there. Otherwise I’m going to assume you will be fine with a cheque posted to your home address.
    If you can let me know which option you prefer I’ll get that sorted asap. If I don’t hear from you I’ll assume a cheque is fine and I’ll get that in the post to you tomorrow.
    We’ve suspended your account.

    Cheers

    XXXX

    So if you don’t like customer complaints, get rid of your customers -the new singletrack marketing initiative.

    Can’t us non premier members have a Tuesday treats but due to us being non subscribers the prize be truly lame. I.e a dust cap or one brake pad? Just an idea
