Do you have any clue how many threads have been on these boards over the years about people who have cheated - intentionally, and (some claim) unintentionally?
Be it missing a turn, skipping a dog-leg turn, whatever, once these people fess up and remove themselves from results, the thread dies.
Sure, sometimes they deny malicious intent and sometimes that denial strains belief, but if they pull the result, the thread dies. People move on. I have way better things to do with my life than worry about cheaters.
But Kip keeps this thread alive by denying the cheating. If he'd fess up, the thread would die. If he takes Rojo up on the offer in the second Kip thread, and runs for some easy money if he really is capable of the times he claims, there will be a lot of post race discussion, but then the thread will die.
So many ways to end the thread.
Denying the cheating, defending the West Wyoming Marathon, and defending beyond-the-pale results as factual... this keeps the thread alive.
To end the thread, Kip: tell us all about how you pulled off Boston. Heck, I'd chip in on crowdfund to the charity of your choice if you'd sit down for a discussion of how you did it.
