I clearly don't read the articles or comments as thoroughly as I need to. Granted, I rarely get to far into the comments on most Reddit posts, where I've been told a large proportion of the trolls hide?? haha.

I enjoy the occasional post, video, or review on PB, but mostly go there for the Buy & Sell section. Hopefully this publicity and discussion can improve Pinkbike. And if not, maybe a new and possibly better site can come out of it.

True. It sounds like they need a strong female presence in management.

A well written article about our recent attacks here in Canada. Why are people shocked when we look closer at our desire to get into foreign conflicts?
(updated below – Update II) TORONTO – In Quebec on Monday, two Canadian soldiers were hit by a car driven by Martin Couture-Rouleau, a 25-year-old Canadian who, as The Globe and Mail reported, “converted to Islam recently and called himself Ahmad Rouleau.” One of the soldiers died, as did Couture-Rouleau when he was shot by police upon>>

We didn't go running into other countries when full genocides were taking place, so why now?

I'll tell you why. It's a threat to our corporate interests. Oil. That's the reason we are involved in the middle east.

Why not go in as a UN peacekeeping force, versus going to war with an idealogy. ISIS isn't even a state.

A bit of Tolkien trivia...The Lord of the Rings was published 59 years ago today!

Pretty controversial topic...Is this a 'crime'? Probably wrong of me to feel bad for the teachers. Feels more like a witch hunt to me.
Police now say that one of the Louisiana high school teachers accused of having group sex with another teacher and a 16-year-old student had previous sexual encounters with the minor. That detail was one of several new pieces of information reveal...

Google+ has added Polls to the mix of ways to post and share. I love it! It's an easy way to engage followers and makes it easier to ask for help and advice as well!
 
Introducing polls on Google+

Michael Jordan or LeBron James? Best pizza in New York City? The definitive James Bond? These are just some of the questions that can only be answered by asking those around us. Starting today, you can use polls on Google+ to settle the burning issues of our generation...or at least find out what your friends are thinking.

Polls make it easy to get opinions from your friends and followers on the things you’re curious about. You can create polls with up to five choices and use photos to make them beautiful and engaging. Check out the album on this post for examples from +The Hunger Games, +Mashable, +Neila Rey and +L’Oréal Paris India.

Of course, no poll is as interesting as the one you want answered, so give it a try for yourself -- just look for the new poll icon when creating a post. Polls will become available over the next few days on Android and the web, and are coming soon to iOS.

We’re excited to see how polls will spark conversations, so please share feedback with us as we work to make polls great for people, pages and communities on Google+.
