    Marquez has won the Japanese Motogp and taken the title after Rossi and Lorenzo crash out.

    He's been here since 2011.

    He'd be thrown off any bike forum for that.

    How about "I say old chap, I really would appreciate it if you did not ruin my day in future by publishing the results of a very very important race before I have a chance to see it. Golly good, thank you".

    PILLOCK is what I said. And should this cause my sudden exit, so be it, this place has suddenly got very unattractive. Bike racing is important, FUN just a way to lose some boring minutes.

    You could/would/should use a post title like Moto GP and the result in the spoiler.

    I was only putting the example to help Andy63 as he asked, I was going to avoid joining in throwing stones at the OP for his "slight transgression" and it's only a few months since the last uproar at this happening.

    Thank you Bigtree for screwing up the rest of my Sunday. Just downloading the race to watch later and I caught the very obvious title of this thread.

    Some people just don't have the brains they were born with! :mad:

    thanks martin , as usual your very helpful... i will have a look at some point..


    sorry brian, not wanting to get into an argument... maybe posted in haste, but was just my initial thoughts on reading your post after seeing earlier posts who I'm sure were equally disappointed...
    I've seen it happen a few times .. I'm sure the op just wasn't thinking, and I'm sure it will happen again...

    sorry brian, not wanting to get into an argument..

    Neither was I today. Just waiting for wife to get back from Church when we were both going to enjoy the racing as we did yesterday watching BSB and WSB neither of which are as important as MotoGP. Now that has all gone.

    Watching MotoGP is one of the most important things in our lives. Last year we drove to two of them. This year I rode to one of them.

    obviously i can't relate to the motorcycling, but i know its happened to me with some rugby which i enjoy watching... if I've been told the result i often don't bother watching it...
    anyways... make sure you don't tell your wife, and spoil it for her...:)

    Thank god I'd already watched it before I logged on here I'd have gone bloody mental if I'd seen that and spoiled one of the biggest events of the year. :swear2::swear2::swear2:
    Like Brian I ride all over Europe to watch the racing done 4 since last November.

    I'm sure it was a genuine post and the op didn't post to intentionally upset anyone, I know nothing about MotoGP apart from its motorbikes but if it's that important could you not have watched it live.

    Yes, but it was silly o'clock in the morning - it was from Japan.

    The practice of not giving results (whatever the sport) on fora is widely understood.

    By all means start a post for discussion but don't put the result in the title.
