I would like to make it apparent that I do not expect an apology, nor am I interested in one. Apologetic words are empty without an accompanying change in behavior, and I'd rather get no apology than a false one, and I'd rather see a change in behavior than get anything. To quote S12 on page one, "actions speak louder..."

Regardless, Don, the reason I was on a racetrack if I wasn't racing is that I was participating in an HPDE; High Performance Driver's Education. These events are designed to allow drivers to better learn their vehicles and further their ability to control said vehicle, specifically closer to the limits of said vehicle than one would normally encounter on the streets, outside of emergency situations where quick reflexes and knowledge of vehicle handling are most important. The events are handled in a way that biases safety and good judgement in driving over one's ability to drive the car fast, and as a result are not pace or time based. You are not competing for placing among other drivers in your run group, nor are you being timed from lap to lap. Your improvement is not measured in any racing-oriented form, only in that you as a driver are exhibiting acceptable levels of control and judgment in operating your vehicle.

And I failed that last bit.

Point is, things other than racing happen on race tracks.

Ah. No, it just seemed that the discussion didn't really need me in it. It was better, in my opinion, for the thread to instead gather the opinions of the community. I didn't need to add any of my own bias--that would have spoiled the uncensored, raw nature of the feedback. If it just turned into a back-and-forth discussion it would muddy the topic at hand...

...which is exactly what happened, but that's what the community wanted and as I even said in the post you quoted, I put the community first and was more than willing to reply if asked to.
