Especially once they start to acquire a New England accent as well.

O.k., so here's my honest question, not just for you beernutt but for the masses here. This round of WSBK, and I presume all of them from here on out, did not have a specific spoiler thread like MotoGP does. This one catch all thread will seemingly cover all our conversations regarding WSBK. So when is it a long enough delay to talk about the race here? We've all (or most of us) have seen it now and we want to talk about the action. So when is it o.k.? 3 days? 5 days? After the next round? Or do we have to start a new thread if we want to talk about a Checa highside or a Biaggi meltdown?

That thread is specific to Phillip Island...I think he's looking for one thread for the whole season rather than a new thread for each race...with spoilers...

Sorry about that. I thought by the time I posted and due to the race being held in Australia everyone would have seen it at that point. You're right though I should have found the Phillips Island specific thread.

As another poster asked, does this mean we are going to have separate spoiler threads for each spedific round? It seems that most discussions even if it's about teams and equipment eventually mention race results from the current season as well. Do we think the posting volume would be too much to have a single catch all spoiler thread where folks can talk about the results from any race that has happened up to that point in the season?

Wow, and I had actually seen that thread. They say the mind is the first thing to go... Thanks Mike.

Yeah, why would this thread be non-spoiler, but the race specific ones arent? That seems backwards.

This thread gives you a place to talk about teams, riders, developments and such, while the race-specific threads are for qualifying, results, etc.

It works out pretty well, actually. Especially since Mike usually puts something in the title about the presence of spoilers.

You would have to be pretty stupid to think you can click on the WSBK thread and not find a spoiler.....
