"Once again CRASH and their moderators show complete bias towards the people that have made them the No.1 moto site.

Deleting posts that don't show their hero in the best light is only going to destroy their main base of users."

You are 100% correct. A few weeks ago, I had a run-in with a moderator who posted some rubbish on the Japan/radiation issue. At the time, I was told by another poster that the moderator in question was pro-Rossi and pro-Vettel and was known to cause trouble.

Since that run-in with the moderator, some posts I have put up have mysteriously disappeard. The only posts of mine that have disappeared are the ones in which I was critical of Rossi. And when they delete these posts, there's no edit by CRASH saying why, the posts simply disappear. I had a post deleted from this thread. My post was no more offesive than the post I responded to. My post was deleted, the post I was responding to was left standing.

In one post that was deleted a couple of weeks ago, I called Rossi a "salesman". Yet CRASH allows numerous posts, from the same small set of unregistered users, calling Stoner a "moaner" to remain.

A really weird thing happened in this thread. I came onto this site yesterday after being away for a week or so. I read two articles yesterday before posting a message. In both those articles, I did what I usually do - I pushed agree on the posts I agreed with, pushed disagree on the ones I disagreed with. I always push disagree on the posts that talk cr@p about Stoner. Then when I put up a post criticising an anti-Stoner post by "@the last word", his reply was this -

"ovcourse you would, the entire Stoner fanclub in this topic would, why else is every post when there is negative talk about him click "disagree""

The guy has worded this in a way where you cannot really tell if he is talking about all Stoner fans, or talking about me specifically - remember, he was replying to me. It seems strange to me that I just got through pushing disagree on many anti-Stoner post I just read, then this guy says what he says. Is Big Brother watching us?

Additionally, when I had that run-in with that moderator, he disappeared from the thread but some unregistered poster came onto the thread pushing the same point of view as the moderator who disappeared off the thread.

It could all be coincidence. Maybe I'm reading too much into it. But I am suspicious and I've seen enough to conclude that the people running CRASH have a pro-Rossi agenda. This includes removing posts they deem 'too critical' of Rossi. And it includes letting Stoner-bashing posts to remain on the forum.

"@ Jimmy Jimmy the MotoGp Guru in question is David Emmett"

Firstly, the post I was responding to said "gurus". That's plural.

Secondly, are you saying that Emmett is in the same category of "MotoGP guru" as Burgess? Burgess has been at the coalface for 3 decades winning championships. He's worked across 3 factories and still has relationships with people in those factories. He's worked at 2 of those factories in the space of the past 12 months. Can you explaing to me how Emmett would know more than Burgess?
