    Re: Ranking Discrepancy

    "All of you snobs may turn your noses up at LetsRun.com, yet nobody will argue the dominance of their message board web traffic."

    Again I must quote John McEnroe: 'You must be kidding me!' Porn chat rooms have huge web traffic too! Runner's World kicks T&FN butt in circulation, but NO ONE wants either of things in 'real track world.'

    Letsrun breeds bottom feeders (not ALL people there - but enough). I am definitely not a highbrow person, but I do draw the line somewhere, and it's right above letsrun. Let's attract a little better demographic, OK? T&FN COULD use help (says amateur me) but the criticism has to be realistic and acceptable.

      Yawn... My sentiments exactly. When the THG scandal broke, you know where everybody went for their info. The letsrun site is a lot like a certain great country, it has the best and worse of everything. I'd rather exercise the option and endure some 'noise', in order to have some lively engagement, than to be limited to the equivalent of, I dunno, say Cold War Soviet Ukraine.

      T&F News has a standard of creditability, and dignity that it wishes to adhere to. That's respectable, and I think thats what you were trying to convey, at the expense of putting down an extremely entertaining, and to the dismay of many, relevant web site. (While simultaneously turning a blind eye to the back channel exchange gestapo tactics I've been reading about on this site)...

      But that wasn't my point at all. The point was that T&F NEWS could supplement/subsidize if not sustain it's web presence with a proper web based advertisement model.

      If T&FNews fails to leverage their web presence in a sucessful manner, I fear the day 1yr subscriptions to T&FNews be more than $63.95 in state, then you won't have to worry about much noise at all, these ivory towers will be all yours. T&FNews has the brand, they could be huge. Honestly, do you feel this site is remotely close to it's potential?

      Sorry all, I should have started a new thread on this, feel free to weigh in.. kevlar underwear on...
