    I saw that. People who don't post here wants it gone? I don't post on the main forum because I don't believe I'm knowledge enough to do so.

    Paul I've ran under you up in Maine in a finished test and your wife in a couple senior test. I'll introduce myself next time I run into you..

    I've posted a lot of stuff on the main board.

    I facilitated the first RTF Jamboree.
    Also 2 Evan Graham Seminars.
    (HMHRC WATKC)
    They were awesome.

    Wrote about line manners, correcting creeping and CCL rehab.

    For those of you who weren't here, you'll never guess who dogged it and tore it apart.

    There is another place to go.
    A lot of folks from here are there.
    No name calling, no personal insults, no family insults.
    Evan Graham is a regular there along with a couple other pros who don't post here anymore.

    PM me if your interested.

    You would be surprised who is already there.

    I think this forum, though cleaned up for now, is on borrowed time.
    This board was shut down before for a while.
    That's what led to another site.

    That site is not to take anything away from RTF.

    RTF serves a great purpose.

    But the POTUS board gets a little off track sometimes.

    Seems to be some serious difficulty with some obeying 1 rule.

    It was created for a reason.

    It reminds me of young (and some not so young) people who want to do away with some social norms or laws because they don’t see why they exist.
    Because these people don’t understand why they were created is the precise reason that they should not be destroyed.

    Two things people really struggle at here, not using the ignore feature, and opening the POTUS forum when they claim to be against it...……. It's not rocket science.

    Why would someone participate here and then want it shut down? I don't get it.-Paul

    What reasons do detractors cite for eliminating potus?

    The old cliche comes to mind, if you can't run with the big dogs........stay under our dang porch......and by all means don't try to burn our house down!

    I wouldn’t know if there was malfeasance of any sort let alone offers of Silver FCs at stud proffered amongst the classified sub forums for the simple fact that I never visit them. I had therefore deluded myself into believing that only those who loved political self flagellation pressed enter to bear witness to our collective madness and not some innocents in need of a new name for their puppy or remedial instruction for getting their dog to seat on a duck(sic) or those sad souls seeking universal approbation for ignoring the text set out in the rule book governing the event they recently judged. I am therefore shocked(but not to the point of official complaint) at the animus displayed by so many, whom to my knowledge have never experienced the excoriation rituals of this august but innocuous and playful realm.

    My concurrence is so vigorous that elucidation becomes a challenge I must now, in the interest of time, shrink from.

    When you solve that riddle you will have resolved all the questions of human existence. Establish your ashram and I will journey there, perhaps (I hope), we will be joined by our Sisyphean POTUS apostate.
