Please return your incredibly interesting post. My first reaction to the rants against your topic was anger. When I was a performance boater, in the pre OSO era. I would have found what both sides said fascinating. But upon reflection, I think my fellow OSO friends are correct. Race related topics should be posted in the racers section. Some boaters are interested and they can read the Racers Roundup. But an obviously vocal group want the forums kept clear for discussions of interest to them. Fair enough, and it might make life eaisier for me as a Racer to simply go to the Racers Roundup when visiting OSO.
