I have read everything posted in ultrarunning community, Lindley Chambers, and you are about the only one if the "establishment" that has always said RY is a cheat.
Not sure how you got that opinion of the UK runners? Mark cockbain agrees he is a cheat and was being sarcastic in that seems legit comment. I know because I have had many chats with him about it. James Adams also does not buy RY and his lies. Neil runs the forum and keeps pretty neutral and rarely comments about stuff and has always been this way so is showing no different. Your will also find there is a growing realisation that what myself and a couple of others have been saying on there is now being more accepted.
I personally have been posting on there and have spoken directly with RY about it.
As I said not sure where you are getting you facts but they are not correct. The UK runners do not however react in the same way that US runners on here do. They usually take a slower more measured approach.
For ease of clarity I am Lindley on fb.
If you are going to try to Slaggyford of UK runners try to at least get you facts right first.
People like cockbain and adams have never come right out and had a go at him the way they did over mark vaz. And posts just get deleted or locked anyway. They let YOU speak, but silence many others.
They are pathetic. He's as bigger cheat as vaz, yet they wont say so - only you will say it. Had the rest slated him, RY would have lost his uk fans, and his funding. As it is, people are STILL giving him money and free race entries, because most people in the uk think he's a hero.
I have waited weeks, and still the uk ultra running world are saying very little about him being a cheat
