comment Can the top tube on a mens bike be cut off?
"You get an immediate kind of response" because people are trying to prevent others from getting killed. The safest approach to a question like this is to assume the person asking is not familiar with the risk involved, and thus the community answers with "doing that is dangerous, beware". The opposite may lead to someone trying this absentmindedly getting themselves in a situation that can be fatal.

comment It it impolite to “informally” join or draft a group of cyclists?
The material of the bikes does not add any value to this questions. It could be reworded a bit like "a group of cyclist riding in formation", and just "My presence was mostly unacknowledged". Without that the question would read a bit less "judgemental", which would improve the tone.

comment Why aren't hub/drum/roller brakes suitable for touring?
The drawback you mention on the third paragraph of caliper brakes is that dirt can get more easily in the surface and prevent braking, while dirt track bikes use disk brakes because the disk (the braking surface) is father away from all the dirt. Going over the handlebars has more to do with braking power, and any good braking system will be powerful enough to cause that.
