That draws our Q&A with Jonathan to a close.

Thanks to all those who took part in the event, submitting your questions and reading along. Sorry if your question wasn't posted, we had a lot submitted. A couple crossed over themes already covered.

Finally, a big thanks to JV who gave up his morning - way more time than we expected - to join us.

We hope to bring you more of these in the future.

Just a few comments and constructive criticism before I depart CN for good.

The "idea" behind this event was a good one (I'm pretty sure I suggested something exactly like this many months ago), and I understand that there will be wrinkles to work out from a maiden voyage but...

It left me thinking, Does anyone around here have any forum experience?

1. For the life of me, I can't imagine why JV wasn't directly quoting the questions he was responding to. It makes for quite the convoluted read when trying to find the source, thereby giving continuity to the "conversation."

2. Perhaps I'm not that bright (and there's a very good chance of that) but as I far as I could tell, JV's appearance was a good hour or two off from what was advertised.

3. I don't mind so much that my own question wasn't acknowledged, (OK, that's a lie) but when I see questions from a "member" with zero prior posting history, and who has therefore contributed zero to the forum in the past, I'm left somewhat perplexed by the decision making process (although that pretty much sums up my perspective on many things around here as of late.).

Au revoir

Go find the minutes from any UCI advisory board meeting. There's one ******* that raises his voice over and over again. That guy is definitely blackballed. That guy is me.
So why wait 10 or so years to say anything (although not much), what was the reason? Are those meetings about who is doping, or who is not being tested? Or why the hard facts about what was going on not being followed up on? (Manzano, Jascke, Floyd confessions).

I doubt it.
