I love every single bit of it.

Good, bad, indiffent, it is a site that I can talk about the ponies.

My only complaint is that I don't post enough. And I'm sure many would love for me to post less.

I have been here for 9 years and was rightfully banned for over a year. This is a highly stressful game if you are into it. The rigors of long and everyday play make us all edgy. Speaking from experience don't post after a long losing day of races. The bitterness is evident! And don't come home from a night of partying and post! There are plenty of times I am up late at night and post. But I get the warm beer award for jackass posts when I post after drinking. Don't do it!

That said to me it's pretty basic. This is without any shadow of a doubt the best horseplayer resource of all time. Lifelong knowledge comes from it and sometimes lifelong friendships and acquaintances. Share your passion not your problems. This is a winnable game. Finding wins and friends is what this website is all about...

The NHL had Grant Clitsome, and still has Kyle Turris.

If they feel that this thread cannot stand on it's own, then why not remove it? Why force me to accept my comments being appended to another thread?

Hard to make the claim that this experience is exactly what I made of it. It can't be the case that the forum is lacking in disk space?

I now openly request that management PLEASE remove my posts from that thread.

Thank You
Like I said, I wasn't around yesterday at all...don't know the circumstances about what you're talking about, but if it wasn't resolved, I'm sorry about that...sent you a PM

Most times this place reminds me of that old TV show .... Cheers and all of the quirky characters interacting.

We have a Norm in Tom with all of his witty one liners.

Then there's Frasier, I think we all know who that is on here!

CJ reminds me of Sam because he keeps order and moves things along.

PA is Cliff for obvious reasons.

I kind of view myself as the Fred Dryer character or maybe that character in those beer commercials .... The most interesting man in the world.

I could go on and on but I won't.

The guy posted a thread called "Turf Sprints" and it was literally right next to a thread that titled "What to look for in Turf Sprints". Why would I not think to merge them when he handicapped three races on the same exact topic in the same exact section of the board?

When I had a chance to remove the posts as requested, I did so. I'm not here 24/7 either just like PA isn't. rsetup should stop acting like a six year old in my opinion. I'm sure this will lead to another insulting PM from him, but I frankly don't give a crap. The last time he did it he lost any benefit of the doubt from me.

You're not the one I had in mind when I made the post. I have no idea where you matriculated or in what field(s).

I didn't mention any name(s) and now that I think about it, it could be several on here.

The one I had in mind always means well IMO just like Frasier always did on the show and his own follow-up show.

I see you more as Lenny on "Of Mice and Men"
