This site chases hits, no matter the cost.
This is a site on focused on a competitive level and professional running, it always seemed weird that it took such glee in outing hobby jogging age groupers who were doing no real harm, unless you counted a few people losing out on $40 gift card.
Well the damage done is real and sometimes can't be undone.
The ethical standard on the forum has been too low for way too long, with nothing offered but excuses.
Even today rojo himself dug up an obvios race baiting thread out of the trash. No shame.
And it seemed a bit off-putting they clearly tried to excuse themselves from any responsibility by clearly trying to subtly imply the entire blame was on tv shows etc Even your own mod was telling you it was time to shut the thread down.
They also remind people that they are talking about real people in the forums...yet they are the one that repeatedly making and allowing damaging comments about teenage athletes weight and performance etc. All for the hits. Those are doing real damage as well.
Individually these thing seem small, but they add up to a site that is unredeemable and one I can't frequent with good conscious anymore. I encourage you to ask yourself if you really want to encourage the continued existence of this site and this behavior by continuing to frequent it.
Enjoy the cess pit people. The damage is real.
