According to Mark, there will be no RunRyder in 2019. Besides, apparently, there were some that was 'offended' by the topic and the sponsors threatened $$. From my understanding, but I could be wrong. Go figure.

Looking at banner adds and other paid advertisements, that sponsor would have to be Scorpion. They are the only ones still here. If I've guessed correctly, I have no malice towards them. They have stayed with RR through it all. In these leaner times I would hate to see any supporter of the hobby receive negative push-back for a decision like this.

IMHO it was all an excuse... Scorpion being one of the last two advertisers has been with mark for well over 8 years, possibly more... back then the Hot girls thread was at the top of the off topics section every week.... and some of those pics put up by members were very risque. some were so bad that they were removed... but none the less no one made threats to pull their advertising back then that we were made aware of.

Another reason I call BS is that during the peak of the RC heli craze, IRCHA had some painted bikini models... remember them?... the ones some manufacturer put up to compete with the AVANT girls... no one was really complaining about pulling their advertising dollars back then either... why? cause it WAS the advertisers idea to begin with... and as I recall IRCHA is like 90% or more male attendees to begin with, it was a highlight to every IRCHA trip to get pictures with these hot girls too.

type in "Girls of IRCHA" in your favorite internet search and tell me what the first 6 rows of images show...

Scorpion was doing the same $hit... I rest my case.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

Given the last two posts, the stated reason seems less likely. Still, times change and often I don't see every angle to every issue (typically I understand 5% of anything being discussed).

My wife often gives me grief when I say, "I don't get this" when looking at some news topic. She says "you don't have to "get" everything. As it pertains to this topic, I don't "get" why is was closed. Nor will I.

IF this is the last day for RR, why bother closing down the Hot Girls thread ?

It was closed several months ago. The reason given for closing it was that some RR members were hasseling Mark, and even hasseling his advertisers over it. No advertizers, no RR.

I see some hot stuff in this thread. Last day. We could fuss, or post a few more following the ussual rules.

Farewell gents.
