Would be nice to have an introduction as to why you would post this here smiling smiley Now it just looks like a spammy ad.

Not spam just looking forward to going it is the only thing here worth doing. No Pro Sports. No Auto Racing. And the county fair is so boring.

Plus no one on the Forum is close enough or really wants to go, Again not Advertising.
And I was so excited when I saw it wanted to share, posted without thinking.
If you believe it is spam, you have my permission to delete it.

No> like I said was just overwhelmed by the thought of the Races that I posted my enthusiasm.
The First Hydroplane will be here this Friday. So I lost it for a short time and posted my enthusiasm.

If you was ever at a Unlimited Hydroplane Race, then you know where I coming from.
If not it is like pushing past thru all the onlookers at the couloir taking that first 6 foot vertical jump into the couloir off an extreme Ski slop at the start of your run.

Never been on Facebook have no ideal what they do there! Though "This isn't Facebook." from what I hear is Exactly like Facebook.
And Now it sure feels like I am personally being persecuted for a simple post.

If you have read all my posts. You will see that what I have done is more than my fair share of helping everyone this includes enhancing the popularity of the Forum.

Again "You have my permission to delete "Way off subject!" in it's entirety ." This is my final post on this matter.

At least you posted here in "General" where 90% of the posts are misplaced despite having their own category !

@VDX
I wouldn't mind a 'tech-talk' subforum, where people can share those topics. Just like the 'look what I've made' section with strictly technical stuff related threads.

like the idea, but Tech talk" just seems wrong drinking smiley we talking tech all over the reprap forum ,I thought/thinking its gonna be a section for members to share off topic things the odd, strange, funny kind of thing, but above all things which could be of interest too other who may have not discovered it yet..

couple light hearted suggestion would:
something strange.
something else.
not on the record!

That's all fine until it devolves into people posting cat videos.
