Are the posters who write on Letsrun typical Americans?


That's what happens when people are allowed to post without registration, and the moderator cannot punish them by suspending their access. Something to keep in mind whenever you are suspended on this forum... :mrgreen:

There is greater interest in high school and college side of the sport, especially in cross country. The material that is slow to develop here is primary fodder on LR. They usually have an active thread on any big marathon (Boston, NYC, Berlin, London, WCs, OGs,...) as well as on some XC races and 10,000s.

You have to separate out the wheat from the chaff and they seem to moderate the boards a little bit more fully than they used to (example, the cut out a lot of speculation on Hadsell resigning) and the use of bad language has diminished.

It is no contest which venue I prefer most, but LR does have a place.
