I want to apologise to all for the deletions in the
last 24 hours. I take full responsibility for it. Please
don't blame any other party, as it was me who did
The purpose of this page is to grow the sport. This
has to happen without slander.
I realise there is in life a time and a place to put
your foot down and say "You are wrong, and I am
right, and here is why ..."
The Net is a problematic place to accomplish that
reasonably however. It turns into a pecking party. It
turns into a spectacle. It turns into a slew of
anonymous names casting aspersions. Often, the
battle actually draws away from the actual issues
And in the end? In the end, nothing has changed.
Everyone holds the same views, and those views
are maybe just hardened.
This is not a war, democracy versus freedom. It is
a tiny, struggling sport. I am not saying everyone
has to try to get along; we are all human, and
unanimous agreement is rare.
But I am asking all parties, please, try to win not by
putting down anyone else, but by building
something. What is the saying? - "Living Well Is
The Best Revenge."
Again, I want to take responsibility for what I have
been reasonably told was both heavy handed (as
there was no explanation given) and unbalanced
(posts were selectively removed). I owe many of
you an apology.
I have tried to move the issue off the page
wholesale, and explain.
I look forward to your responses, however critical.
In keeping with the message above, contrary views
are best stated reasonably and intelligently. If you
post "I canot believe you, you are a stupid snake"
you are unlikely to accomplish much. If you say,
"Listen, I appreciate your taking the time to post,
but you are wrong 100% of the time in this matter,
and here is why ..." I promise you I will be listening
as hard as I am able.
