    I'd heard all was not well there so this doesn't surprise me in the slightest. It amazes me how arrogant the Editor must be. But then again I did a piece for a well-known Equine & Dog magazine a few weeks ago - 350 words of a point to point report from a Sunday meeting. OK not much but I did it to the word the deadline being Monday morning at 10am which I did fine despite getting home quite late from the point to point. It was exactly as they asked - a few quotes and some references to hunting. I read my published piece - completely different! And now badly written with poor English but still my name on it. I have been asked to do next Sunday's meeting at Bratton Down which I will do but I wonder what the point is - the Editor may as well just ask for the main points and write her own piece if she's that controlling.

    IIRC, the last time I had a letter published in the Weekender it had been edited slightly. I didn't mind that. What I minded was that the headline bore no resemblance to the point I was making!

    There's plenty of people "bothered" with the flat, They just don't frequent this place anymore mainly due to boring attitudes like the above.

    The classy beasts you mean

    The RP gets less useful daily, and though they promote their tipping, news and replays (all of which are frequently bettered elsewhere - and f.o.c) they continue to neglect their only real, marketable asset; their form database, which is still the most comprehensive on the net.
    However, even this becomes less reliable, and the number of "no form for this horse'' and "no result available" seem to increase exponentially. Time they woke up, or it really could be 'Goodnight, Vienna'.


    ps to Granger This "holier than thou" attitude of yourself, and a few other jump fans, does the future of this forum few favours - and then, where would you martyr yourselves?
