Wow. Laz gave no credit for anything that letsrun contributed.

Not about discovering how the twitter and facebook followers were bought, even though he mentions that.

Not about any of the data analysis, instead Case Cantrell (a relative?) gets all credit for that.

Not about analyzing the false claims in the book or the dubious records about the 373 mile run or the 420 marathons.

Not about analyzing the dubious PRs on the website or his history as a triathlete or anything.

Not about all the graphics and summaries that letsrun produced?

Not about forcing Skins to respond by flooding the comments on Jaimie's blog?

Not trying to steal any credit from Team Geezer for spending money and time to expose this, but nothing positive to say about letsrun, not one contribution? C'mon.[/quote]

A sizable amount of the data & analysis on LR was crossposted here by someone who had posted it to the ultralist first. The source from which most of the data came was an Ultralister.

Asher's contribution was well-credited as the main catalyst that destroyed the RY Transcon attempt. Other than that, LR was more a source of amusement than information as far as the actual TransCon was concerned. The dug up facts about possible past cheating and the lies for PRs had little bearing on investigating the transcon attempt itself. The point was to prove that he was cheating the transcon, not that he lied in the past so he must be lying now too.
