Open Letter to the Fans of Florida Stock Car Racing

Dear Family,

I know alot of you are tired of the message board and all the bull. and that is exactly what it is bull, on the message board. It seems we need two boards, one for honest racing messages and one for whoever wants to cutdown, call names, cuss and vent nothing but pure anger and hatred because that seems to be what it is. Personally, I have more people tell me that they don't even go to the message board anymore because there is nothing there but bull.

A message board is where a beginning racer can ask experienced racers questions, where you can congratulate a winner or someone who just did good in a race. A place to let people know when there is a loss in the racing family, a birth, even a marriage or remarriage. It is a place where you can ask for race results or even if a race is still scheduled and that is why there is a message board.

Many sites now have closed down their message boards because of all the driver bashing and name calling and bull. Some have not put them back up and one even closed the site permanently and moved to a new internet address because his message board was just plain out of hand.

Even with a moderator on this board, not everything can be erased or stopped. It is really crazy how much bull you read on this message board. I am very proud of KARNAC and the work they do for the racing community but I am not proud of this message board. If you have to vent your anger towards another driver or track then maybe we should have a "VENT YOUR ANGER BOARD" and that way, people can go there and cuss and call names all they want but the honest fans of racing do not have to see it or read it.

I was not born in a barn and I was taught if you have nothing good to say, DON'T SAY ANYTHING AT ALL. What good is all this anger and bull doing anyone? You hurt people you don't even know most of the time and why? Because they did what, raced with you or sat next to you or maybe went to the bathroom the same time as you.

My vote goes with a "VENT YOUR ANGER BOARD" Jack and let the true fans of racing have the Florida board. Then the loyal fans of Florida Stock Car Racing Message Board can come back and read what they used to - the whys, hows, good driving, happy announcements of the drivers and fans of this state.
