I'm sure it's more........many have been archived.

As for deletions?  What we have existing is an excellent cross-section of discussion.  Plus, there have been NO documented instances of redaction.  The merging of threads don't qualify.

Sounds good to me.

And the pages of actual racing related material would still be 1000.

Correction: YOU would have. Other forum members who are equally valued prefer to read/discuss racing topics and don't like the OT nonsense. So IMHO Janine does quite a good job of balancing it all out, including the unfortunately necessary deletions and bandings of posts and posters that go over her line.

  Thank you for speaking for all of us yet again...except me.  I love OT, and prefer to call it what it is...derailing.  Lighten up oh miserable one....just speak for yourself next time, if thats possible.

Terry- after about half a day, racing stuff is usually covered top to bottom, from all angles- there really isn't too much "new" stuff going on in harness- pardon us for having a sense of humor

Ah. "Sense of humor." That's what the insults, nastiness, obscenity, and libel that Janine deletes is called.

You're right, that's some funny stuff right there.

Count me in as well. Kindly speak for yourself HBT
I couldnt agree with you less. Why not just toss anyone who posts a non racing topic ?  Thanks for calling it like it is Soho

I actually spoke for many posters who don't like the nastiness, fights, and obscenity. You guys think you're the only ones here, or maybe the stars of the show?

There's nothing wrong with humor or OT threads per se, and Janine doesn't delete those. The topic, however, was how many pages there would be if there were no deletions, and its unlamented garbage that bothers lots of other posters that gets deleted. Deservedly, in my personal opinion.

There you go again. Why would you say I think Im one of the only one's here ? You have to right to make that claim. You have absolutely no idea what I think

Why would off topic stuff possibly bother you ? If it does, don't read it.  I use no obscenity here ever. Nor do I think Im the star of any show. I have opinions like you or anyone else.

Just who are "us guys " anyway ? Can I get the full list of us hoodlums ? Im sure you have it handy.

Maybe they just don't like the poster and haven't taken their milkamagnesa

Terry probably isnt in a position to give you that list.
He hates harness and comes over here only when its slow on his throughbred side and/or to cause trouble.

The list is pretty easy to comprehend. Just read.
You are a hoodlum and associate over and over again with "known" hoodlums.

Next?

Because obviously you (as a group, not you personally, I mean) don't care what Janine's rules or standards are and have been for many years, and you don't care about alienating and driving off posters who came here for actual horse racing discussion.

Quote

I know how you (the group) act.

Quote

I don't give a crap about OT material per se, but the question I replied to was the question of how many pages there would be without deletions, so obviously (to most, at any rate) what I'm talking about is what got deleted.

Quote
If it does, don't read it.

That's a great idea. So can we agree you and all others keep it out of meaningful discussions instead of constantly derailing those, so I will NOT have to read it?  

Quote

Then I'm guessing you have probably had very few posts deleted for that reason, and the obscenity charge isn't really about you.

Quote

The ones always whining about having their great thoughts (read: nasty insults) deleted by Janine, as in the difference between 1000 pages and 4500. If that's not you, then you can bow out, because I'm not talking about you.

You are a hoodlum "sympathizer".

Which is OK.

It doesn't make you a bad person or open you up for scorn.
I have in the past sympathised with them.


If I did a thread on the hoodlums it wont last long.
So I try to offer constructive criticism in their threads.

Or maybe they just don't like the constant nastiness and derailment, like I said in the first place.

I'm addressing the difference between the 1000 pages and the mythical 4500 pages you guessed. So you decide if it's serious, not serious, maybe lampooning someone's goofy claim, or Huh

And the problem with "slow" as opposed to "serious racing stuff" (not that everyone would agree on serious re: tbred side) for a forum nominally dedicated to horse racing would be ...

You're right, that's some funny stuff right there.

Some is tasteless and classless, sure.. There seems to be a lot of feuds going on here. If anyone has a real problem with anyone and it upsets them they should just click ignore and be done with it. Going into diatribes about other ppl's conduct is a waste of time, you're not gonna change anything or more importantly anyone. Ultimately I would like th ability to decide if I want to read jokes n off color humor mixed in w/ racing talk and occasionally by itself! I enjoy it. If you don't you know who to ignore for the most part- that simple. Going on and on about how big of an ***hole someone else is is passive aggressive fighting even if they "started" it.. You can be done with it if you want to be. If you enjoy engaging in feuds than I'm not gonna stop you from doing it. I think it's pointless but I'm not about trying to stop others from enjoying things that I don't particularly care for. Call me a Liberterian- not to be confused with "The Liberteriann" of Northfield (obscure NFLD horse reference)
