Seems as if the snipers and so called Intelligentsia have had their way,nobody bothers anymore for fear of been ridiculed by same. A once must go to forum has died the death,those contributors who brought strong opinions were vanquished by the above, or so it seems.The snipes have nothing to offer only abuse,good men who enjoyed banter among themselves driven off.

Okay here we go,today at Naas I fancy Butterflies, her maiden win with Winter behind also E.Browning well beaten reads really well,the application of first time blinkers is also a big plus and should help with the drop in trip.

Can't wait to see the Bolger runner goes in the finale- by Frankel out of Alexander Goldrun (Just going to watch this one),that rain is still falling and we might see a further ease in going.

Good men have been driven off, yes you are spot on about that. It has nothing to do with the examples you give though. People stop posting for quite a number of reasons, they die off, they lose interest in the game , they are too busy , are warned off, and in many cases they go broke. But the single biggest reason why people stop posting is because a handful of mindless individuals clogged up almost every thread with inane rubbish , that was so sickening, that they eventually packed up even reading it.
Everyone that has read this forum will know exactly who I'm referring to, and even though the forum is not everyone's cup of tea, there have been some very informative posters on here over the years, but almost all never bother now, and it's a great shame.

Most of the good posters got BANNED, those who were snipers out to shoot every opinion that differed from theirs,those who only wanted to sound intelligent without substance,those who had a agenda etc,of course there was plenty of shyte as well,I hold my hands up on that,but the reality for some was the destruction of the Irish forum and as I say it looks as if they've succeeded.

You only have yourself to blame workrider, given that you are the single biggest blight in the history of this forum, which is a hell of an achievement.

Always enjoyed the forum, especially the weekly golf threads,but as already pointed out a lot of the decent posters have been banned or driven away from the forum by some moron's,

This forum is deceased , defunct ,dodoesque, decrepit ,demolished, departed , dead as doornails.
All that's left is a hollow husk ,a  spent cartridge , an empty shell. .

Sorry workrider, but it is several years since I was a regular poster on here (Philip Rothwell was in his prime) and multiple usernames were never my thing.
