People only stick around for a long time because they can either turn a profit or they've got sod all better to do.  I'm now on the latter reason.

Took me around a year to switch to Betfair from flutter, always thought they had the better platform but were so stuck in their ways and only ever looking to make a quick buck during the dot com boom which was a pity. I'd guess most of us would have looked to support the other exchanges that came and went if we'd have known how Betfair would turn out.

It says i'm living up to my name 25/09/02 but it was a bit prior to then as there was a log in problem and I had to register again.
Has anyone had a William Hill account longer than me? I first opened it in 1955 and stopped using it around 1959 when they put restrictions on my account but went back to it a few years later and they gave me the same account number.
I also had a Tote Credit account from around 1958 until Fred took over and closed most of the On Course members facilities.

uk.sport.horseracing was much more interesting with good posters. Hugh Taylor was a regular poster before going on to ATR and gave well reasoned early thoughts on big races. I remember a 33/1 winner of the National as soon as the weights came out. Pat Keating's brother in law used to pass on early news of Ballydoyle horses. Very few posters spent their time slating jockeys. We did get a few chancers like RaceXpert.
It fizzled out about 2010 but I kept all the posts from 2003, all 37000 odd of them.You will remember Mac, Ren, Laddie. Dave McAuley, Batezee, Dark Horse, Brian Hogg and The Grate Denini.
 

Here's one of mine from there!
Dwarf with a lisp goes to a stud farm to buy a horse, "I'd like to buy a
horth" he says to the owner of the farm.
"What sort of horse ?" asks the owner.
"A female horth", the dwarf replies and so the owner takes him to his finest
mare.
"Nithe horth", says the dwarf, "Can I thee her eyth?".
The owner patiently picks up the dwarf and shows him the horse's eyes.
"Nithe eyth" says the dwarf, "Can I thee her teeth?".
Again, the owner picks up the dwarf to show him the horse's teeth.
"Nithe teeth, can I see her eerth?" the dwarf says.
By now the owner is getting a little fed up but again,picks up the dwarf and
shows him the horse's ears.
"Nithe eerth", says the dwarf, "Can I see her twot?"
With this, the owner picks up the dwarf and shoves his head deep inside the
horse's vagina and holds him there for a few seconds before pulling him out
and putting him down.
The dwarf shakes his head and says, "Perhaps I should weefwaze that, can I
see her wun awound?"
