sorry to burst your ego bubble screamy but I'm not stalking your posts, I just looked at the top 3 or 4 threads, had a look and noticed your hypocritical double standards.
I don't give a monkeys about Danny Dyer, so feel no need to post on that thread

Jesus you lot are really stuck in the playground.

Screampillar - you are totally right.

Oh and Bob - getting someone else to do your dirty work for you? Nice.

 

Dirty work? 

I spotted an inconsistency / glaring error that has since been corrected. Anyone who signs up for a monthly prize competition where winners are determined by results that appear against their own name are opening those results up to scrutiny.

Looks like in this case the person in question is more likely to be an innocent victim of a cock up, than the clear case of cheating that DF3 unearthed a few weeks back.

Nevertheless, if I was looking at this lass's result with scepticism last night, you can bet that there were plenty of others who were doing the same - indeed, it has been mentioned on another thread already.

The fact that this thread has appeared probably had nothing to do with the correction of the result, but however the result did come to be corrected, the fact now is that the runner in question will no longer have other people looking suspiciously at her result, and is now effectively cleared both on runbritain and on here.

Should it have been debated on here? Well, that's rather more of a grey area perhaps, but the swiftly corrected result in this case is not matched by the two clearly bullstink results that are still credited to the Brighton / Paris runner, and whilst she and her club might currently refuse to acknowledge or correct those results, at least the truth is actually out there and known by many.

In my opinion, both cases were therefore worth looking into and debating.

I refer you to my previous post. If you still can't see the difference I'm not going through it again. Bored now frankly.

But pleased that at least Kafeeg seems to get what I'm on about.

Looking into - yes. Debating - no. You think find an anomaly, you report it and leave it at that. 

The only people that need to know are the people who are affected (ie the race participants) not the whole bloody running community. Organisers are perfectly capable of disqualifying and moving people up a place if they need to. Why can't we leave them to it?

Like Dustin, I had no idea there was an issue with the timings until I read it on here.

I don't see why the thread should be cazzed.  There were and are issues, why shouldn't they be talked about?

DF3 hasn't actually accused anyone of cheating, just drawn attention to an issue.  Other people have drawn their own conclusions.

People who don't like his threads can always not read them - but I guess that's not nearly as much fun as working up a lather about how outrageous it all is.

 

I have a girl crush on Wilkie - she is the voice of reason

I really don't get how referring to another thread on this thread is considered stalking. How very emotional.
30/04/2013 at 14:30
K80. Yes I think Phil and Wilkie are like the Head Boy and Head Girl of the forum.

Are they though? In this case, they were.

In the other case, despite being reported to both race organisers and the runner's club, the result(s) still stand, and they are continued to be claimed as genuine when they blatantly aren't.

If someone has nothing to hide, there's no need to fear an open debate, as might well be the situation in this case.

Blimey Phil, do you get notified when your name is posted?

 2 minutes that took.

I appear to be on one of my many tea breaks, and I'm a bit of a multi-thread stalker. 

30/04/2013 at 14:42

Big Bad Bob, not only do you have a great name but from your posts on other threads you seem a decent bloke. However, it does seem a bit weird that you saw an unusual result and rather than go to the organiser, you went to................................... DF3 

30/04/2013 at 14:43

But you see Bob, if someone is presented with the "evidence" against them they can defend themselves, and none of the people referred to on either thread has been. 

Hardly an open debate, wouldn't you agree?

David - I could see you setting up some kind of Aussie help line to help solve people problems. O wait I see in that lager advert you already have. Nice work.

Anyway KK when are RW going to print another picture of you in the magazine. I have used that picture so many times over the years I can no longer open that page

I was about to leave work, and I didn't have 'enough' to go to the race organisers myself at that point otherwise I would have done. DF3, however, had already shown both the inclination and some flair for digging into this sort of thing. I neither invited him nor discouraged him from making public what I'd stumbled upon and he went on to further uncover. 

I didn't really give it any more thought than that to be honest, and whilst I exchanged a couple more PMs with him later in the evening, I didn't even realise these threads existed until just before I went to bed last night. Have to confess I do find the moral outrage and feather spitting quite amusing though. 

Thanks for your other comments.
