For the historical record - this is what started the 'vitriol'

HP: Hegel stays, and look for Nietzsche to get a bigger role. If you don't like it, don't read it. AND YOUR COMMENTS ABOUT WEIGHT ARE WRONG (yes, that is my CAPS LOCK added). Weight will cost more lengths at longer distances, but a length is more important at 5f than it is at 10f. (Can't appear to be playing favorites, you know.)

So there's no 'being extra nice' or anything else. I'm wrong! In my response, I said I do not consider weight differences of less than 5 pounds (I don't!), and then later on I made a joke about it. A devastating indictment you serve up there Aly.

I apologize to other posters for taking up the space (again), but as you can see by Aly's characterization of this whole thing -
("I knew exactly what you were doing...") he has gone off the deep end.

As for JB,

ALY - "Weight will cost more lengths at longer distances, but a length is more important at 5f than it is at 10f."

JB - "1 point = about 1 length at 5f, 2 lengths at 10f, WHETHER IT IS A POINT OF ABILITY OR A POINT OF WEIGHT."

It's not everyone who can take a simple and useful idea like this and turn it into a lot of speculative crap, so take a bow.

I don't need any further clarification on this from Jerry, and I would be (mildly) shocked if he posted anything on your 'more important length' ideas. Jerry's a busy man, and there aren't enough hours in a day to address your goulash (though I've tried). He certainly hasn't said anything to support your ideas so far, but that doesn't mean you won't try to twist something around to suit your argument.

Your gyrations with bj's emails are hilarious (there was nothing in them to support your point of view either). You can have the last word (and I'm sure you will!). Good luck with your space/time/distance/important-length mishegas. You might be better off sticking with your psedo-intellectual postings that have nothing to do with racing. HP
