i think thats terrible news, didn't know the guy, but thought he added a great deal to the forum. he was humorous and witty and a force behind making the board go. in america we have freedom of speech and its a shame that this cannot extend to these types of forums. we all have opinions and some times they hurt others. still i would rather have freedom of speech than not at all. he offended someone and got banned, thats not  a good idea, imo. it makes you wonder , why spend any time here at all, if after a while you say something offensive and get banned. why participate at all Huh

Those who know Offstride are aware of his love for the game. He IS NOT just some grandstand goof,he is one of the last true fans of the sport!This cat will drive hundreds of miles to watch a non-betting race just because he saw the sire or dam of one of the colts or fillies race at one time.He has great recall of many of the sports greatest moments and shares those special times with new fans to enlighten them about how great the sport can be,betting or not.We have alll laughed and grimmaced at his posts since becoming junkies of this site,the least we can do is support him in restoring his true screen name.The "KING OF ALL POSTERS" will live on no matter what we call him!

I don't know Off Stride personally but I have read many of his posts and thought they were hysterical!...lol

Rule: If you ban people who bring comedy to a website, what's the point of having the website?

I'm on for entertainment purposes only.....As soon as this website starts to take itsef too seriously....Im gone! Sounds like it already has by banning one of our comic reliefs.

Personally, I disagree with him on just about everything. If having everybody disagree with him is all he has done, then no, he shouldnt be banned. It is much better and more interesting to beat him intellectually with facts and thoughts then to just have him banned. Agree with him or not, he is interested in the sport and we dont have much of that to begin with.

If he has used language so offensive or over the top, I would hope he is given a fair chance to be told put an end to it before he was banned.

This is not Junior's Tips or the Northfield Fans Board where you are obligated to proclaim your loyalty and love to Amy Hollar, pledge to never of Greg Grismore as anything other then the greatest driver ever to grace a sulky, talk about drugs or who is cheating on their spouses and be subjected to offensive pictures.

I would hope the people who run this board see what those boards have quickly become and keep this board above that.

So unless Offstride did something I am not aware of, he should be brought back

That was explained earlier. The First Amendment applies to governments not website operators. Warden or The Warden don't know which is someone Janine tabbed to be secondary moderator because she can't ride herd on a forum of juvenile boys 24/7. Remember on the old forum warden was listed on the front page as forum moderator.

The Warden can do whatever he wants to do.

You have to remember he's the Boss.

When you are Boss you are the Dictator.  There's no Democracy when you are his guest on his Forum.

One of the reasons I am self-employed is that I am the Boss.  The only problem I have is that the people who hire me, they are the Boss.  I have this bad habit of eating and sometimes gambling and therefore I have to sometimes listen to the Boss.  If the Boss gets mad at me because his horse does not perform the way he thinks it should performed, I get fired.  By the way my Boss (Wife) says come home.

With that, I have to leave because the Boss is the Boss.

NO!!!! And I must add, this was said in private not on the forum. I am amased at some of the vile attacks that the clan of esteemed poster can post, and it is accepeted, wishing death and fatal illness, to me is far more offensive than privatally telling someone to hose off.
