Instead of getting better, the old MO site gets curiouser and curiouser.

It has really been doing some oddball things of late.

Jeez, you guys are a tough crowd!

First of all, MO hasn't really been a racing-oriented site in years, so we understand if hardcore race junkies get race info from other sources.

Second, we posted results of this race on Monday morning, mere hours after the event ended.

Third, the idea of this article was to give an overview of a historic return to the U.S. for WSBK, not blow-by-blow race coverage. If you read the article, you'd see that.

This was an important event for America, so it deserved the coverage. What's the big problem?

I would of read the article but the link didnt work on the above post. Due to the information overload on the site I check the forums and move on most of the time. Otherwise I get dizzy and pass out... So with that criteria "World Superbikes return to the US" looked like a forewarning and of course I had to in the theme of MO, be a MOron...

Well, "information overload" has got to be better than 14 months ago when everyone was whining about a lack of content on MO!

Some people would complain if you hung them with a new rope.

I think you can take a pill for that, now. At least that's what my TV keeps telling me.
