I agree with Rich wholeheartedly about the guidance needed from RW about hosting a thread. Not just for the runners but the coaches/advisors as well. All future SSXers need to be aware of the nature of the boards at times and be able to cope with it.
It certainly is a steep learning curve about everything you are as a person and a runner.
I think the experience of last year has affected the feelings towards the Super Six nominees negatively.
Last year was the first XFactor style vote because previously the forumites complained that RW Towers made the decisions choosing the Super Six. Playing devil's advocate here, I think RW Towers feels as though they are damned if they do and damned if they don't.
Mustkeepingtrying - you seem like a decent sort of fella but please do not under estimate the feelings of the forumites. This place is a part of their lives. Of course they guard it. Be careful what you type.
