To my knowledge there has been NO whining during this entire thread. And I
am certainly not making any excuses. I and others have been stating the
facts as demonstrated by the statistics.
What I read are some very good ideas and recommendations to make a good
thing better, AND the statistics to back up the request to implement those
ideas and recommendations.
All of this IMHO.
73, and have a great week.

One thing about racing is people learn to take a licking without excuses.
Whining and moaning doesn't go far. No one tolerates it, and that probably
is why I have such a low tolerance for it.
