    Didnt know where to post this comment but Steve reid is correct in that s.post has closed certain topics for comments and these are the ones that should be open …All the best for the future s.post with this new direction which jas now closed the last independent site where the racing public could discuss all racing issues…

    1. Editor says:

      Hi Hilton
      We want to encourage considered input rather than, often personal, sniping comments
      It is the intention to leave the Mailbag items open for comment – unless the author specifically requests different.

  2. Jay August says:

    Hilton, after reading (or attempting to) the lead story on another website today, which equated to incoherent mumbo jumbo, I’d take any amount of incoherent chatter in the comments section of Sporting Post in preference. Had that been posted by anyone on SP as a comment I am sure it would have been censored.

    Mr Ed, your new media partnership is starting to show early onset editorial dementia, banning some comments while some members publish feature length diatribes of dubious character!

    Inconsistency in application across the media will have the outcome of pushing away reasonable but cutting commenters like Hilton and Steve, while emboldening incoherence amongst those who are least capable of making a solid written contribution.

    Censorship by its nature is difficult, and needs a steady hand and a rational mind. I am not sure the application is quite rational at the moment. It needs a rethink!

      Hi Jay
      We are absolutely not setting out to ‘pushing away reasonable but cutting commenters like Hilton and Steve…’
      We have requested that the SP Mailbag be utilised – under own name.
      It doesnt have to be a diatribe – it’s an email. If it’s only 100 words, so be it.If it’s 3000 – we can cope too.
      The transition will have creases to be ironed out.

  3. Jay August says:

    Mr Ed, we had this discussion separately in which I lamented that in the past reasonable discussion was had through the mailbag of magazines such as the SA Magazine, and that we have now lost much of that. I challenge not your attempt to reinvigorate that. There is no contradiction with my sentiment so expressed and my comment above, although it may appear so.

    The reasonable standard for discussion should require that posters refrain from making a personal attack their main argument. However, if personal attack takes place while making a reasoned argument then it must be judged on the basis of its reinforcement of the main argument.

    Censorship has the effect of pushing out both desired commentary and undesired commentary, the former unintentional. Hopefully Hilton and Steve will not be the unintended victims.

    Great to have racing back again and look forward to a great weekend – Hawaam vs Sokky – Summer Pudding going for the Triple Tiara and Got the Green Light in the Derby. Add the Drill Hall Stakes at Greyville on Sunday and someone booking a place in the July – can’t wait but please powers to be in KZN – please, please, please put the listing of horses in the race card back to what it used to be. Having the draw and horse carded number the same is driving me mad and making working on form a nightmare. I know which gate my selection comes out of on the old system and am sure 99% of punters know too.

  5. donald bradshaw says:

    Jay or Ed can either of you confirm that there was no ante post betting in 1966 as stated by Aiden Lithgow in his Sea Cottage story ?

  6. Jay August says:

    Donald, where in the video does Aidan say this? Are you sure he was not rather implying that at the time Syd placed his bet for the triple – Newbury, Guineas and July, there was no ante post betting on the July, rather than that there was no ante post.

    I listened mostly to Mike Wanklin for his handicapping insight, who unfortunately only got a few words in, so missed some of the other banter.

    Anyway I am sure Aidan reads SP and will comment.

  7. donald bradshaw says:

    Hi Jay , thank you for your response , I have sent a letter to the S.P. mail bag so lets see what comes of that correspondence.

  8. Jay August says:

    Donald, Mr Ed, I have been sitting on tenterhooks waiting for this letter?!

    1. Editor says:

      Hi Jay
      Waiting to link with Aidan Lithgow
