This Forum Is Now Locked Down Again


This Forum was created to divert traffic from Current Events at the height of the BALCO scandal. It comes and goes as "needed"; it's back to being locked.

This Forum Is Now Locked Down Again

Postby gh » Thu Mar 16, 2006 4:41 pm

Those of you who have been with us since the beginning will remember that when the whole Modafinil/THG/BALCO thing overwhelmed the sport starting late in the summer of '03, the Current Events forum soon contained almost nothing but drug news.

In response, we created the Doping forum. The good news is that that forum is now little used, and what use it does get is mainly directed at things that have little/nothing to do with track.

Ergo, we've locked this section down. We won't remove it, however, because it certainly retains some significant archival value.

Should we--heaven forbid--get into another crisis situation, we'll reopen it. In the meanwhile (aka, hopefully forever), it is once again permissible to address legitimate doping topics on the Current Events forum.

Legitimate, as always, means no rumors, no innuendo. Nothing but the facts m'am. And the scope of what is relevant is 99.99% restricted to track & field. Not other sports.

Thanks.

E. Garry Hill/editor

Can we change the Dope description on the Forum Front Page? Reading "It is no longer needed" every time just adds insult to injury.
