I learned two things on this thread. Frank Meza is a fraud and Roderick Powell is one strange guy.


Roderick,

I don't know you, I don't know what you do...

... but I can't understand why some posters pick on you like this.

Per my reading of the forum,
you began an arc towards enlightenment by simply congratulating an apparent champion.
And when that runner's feat was questioned, your stance on Frank's supposed cheating evolved from cynicism to skepticism to curiosity to active inquisition then finally to acknowledgement of the indisputable evidence and acceptance that the doubters were correct....
... JUST LIKE MOST OF US.
You even apologized (admirably, courteously, unnecessarily) for your (understandable, ordinary) misjudgment.

Why do some posters here give you such grief??
