    That’s a nice pack, but I refuse on principle to “Like” something on Facebook just to get a tiny chance at winning a prize. And “Share” just makes me do your advertising for you.

    Sorry. 🙁 I really hate Facebook as a medium for things like this and refuse to use it thus.

    Then I guess you won’t get a chance to win.

    I’m with Janice on this. I’ve mentioned this before, but I have serious issues with Facebook and no amount of swag will get me to change my views.

    Snarky comments are my department RL.

    Janice and Raiyn,

    you know what I object to? Giving all the content contained on this site away FOR FREE. We make just enough money from advertising to keep this site up and running…so God forbid we ask our readers from time to time to help us spread the word, thereby helping to keep the lights on and the articles flowing ’round here.

    You don’t want to use Facebook for those purposes? Fine with us…plenty of our other readers are helping get the word out, and we appreciate that.

    @ RL
    Back at ya
    Trust me this is NOT the video I wanted to use.

    Look I don’t disagree with you guys “spreading the word” and advertising via FB. I have my problems with them and that’s my thing.
    What I object to is rather than offering a reasoned response like Ghost did or even an alternate means of entry like so many other contests and sweepstakes do, (anyone here use the tweety?) we get patronizing responses and crappy Family Guy clips.

    I want those lights.

    I love bike stuff and will gladly like and share if it gives me a chance to win and also to promote bike blogs/websites/events/shops/commuting. It’s bike commuting! It’s not like anyone is asking you to share and like the KKK or child porn. Just my opinion. Don’t care really because it gives the rest of us a better chance to win!
