    Your post is the first one on Page 2 EC1, have you tried toggling the Thread Display options ?

    That little trick on Firefox has made a hell of a difference, thanks EC1

    kinda ironic that on a topic complaining on RP website, the thread's own site is having issues. Someone needs to contact the dev. and tell him to update the CKEditor from 5 years ago version of 3.6.2

    Aughex,

    I don't pay money every month to read this site so I can cope.

    @aragorn, no offence but what you just said is idiotic. No one pays money to access RP website and if you are having problems with their site and you still subscribe then its even more idiotic. Secondly, I don't think you know how bugs work. If I was an ill intentioned person no one will be able to access/read any threads on here(via standard view) and I don't think many will cope with it. I gave an opinion, more of an advice, and of course like always people on here take it the wrong way..

    Lots of people pay money to access the RP website, which is their choice regardless of whether or not you'd choose to do the same. It's kind of ironic that on a post criticising people for being idiotic (in your fairly narrow opinion), you manage to be idiotic at the same time.

    PS Does that sentence sound like advice or an opinion to you?

    no one pays to access RP, its free: http://www.racingpost.com/news/horse-racing/ The OP and other complained that even the free version had problems and its not worth accessing.

    Now, for the ironic comment let me put it another way so you can understand. Someone X is having car problems with the engine overheating(Racing Post website, adds & other ****) and he borrows his friend Y car which the next day engine's fail and won't start(Page 2 of this thread which doesn't display anything) then someone comes along and makes a light comment of how ironic this is and tells him how to start the car but X tells him hey at least its not my car(which is idiotic). Then a smart-ass comes along and insults the one that offered the advice, telling him he's a narrow minded person because the owner X paid for his car so the engine should not overheat(which is not relevant at all as the discussion was about the friend's Y car engine and how to start it).

    I've given your comments further consideration. I have recently implemented a strict security policy whereby I am not willing to converse with people in the bottom decile of intelligence. As you clearly fall into this category I will have to add you to my ignore list.

    This site http://www.dictionary.com/ should be able to assist you with any of the longer words which you may not be familiar with the meaning of. Like ironic. And idiotic.

    TTFN.

    The Post is truly excelling itself in the run-up to Cheltenham.

    Please read their Ten Returning Hero's article, then marvel at the glorious stupidity of someone who can squeeze in Sir Ken and Golden Miller (anyone still alive who cares?), yet manages to ignore Hurricane Fly and Kauto Star regaining their Champion Hurdle and Gold Cup titles respectively.

    After you've recovered, make sure you avail yourself of their 'All you need to know about the 2018 Cheltenham Festival' piece; an article that is critical-reading for anyone stumbling across their website during recovery from a full frontal lobotomy.

    They are an untold shower of pointless and irrelevant, thoroughgoing wankers.

    I know it's Lent, GH, but I'm not going to punish myself any more, thanks.

    Being off the bevy, snacks, sweets, autoerotica etc is tough enough going...

    In their 'Dark Horses Special' section, the RP puts up a horse that won at the Festival last spring, and who is currently favourite in the respective market.

    Fu*ck.

    Right.
