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.
