I for one will say that I never voted in it because I thought it was a bad idea. Often, when reading these boards, I get the impression that a majority of fans believe a majority of world class runners are doping, and I feared the poll would only serve to perpetuate that negativity.
Boy, was I wrong. It's so refreshing to see an overwhelmingly positive view of most modern record holders. I suppose the jaded fans are simply the most vocal?
1. The poll was informative and a good idea.
2. The LR community is much less pessimistic about fast running than I would have ever perceived without reading the results of the poll.
3. Trolls will be trolls.
