    The problem is, it is NOT a gray area -- just like you can't be a
    "little bit pregnant."  Either you started, or you didn't.  If you
    started down the trail, even one inch, you started.  Period.  End of
    story.  I think it's rather silly to claim otherwise.

    >some very nasty remarks. 
    I don't know about that, but it's irrelevant.  The question has now
    come out, and needs resolution.  I don't know Karen and I like and
    admire Dave Nicholson, but that doesn't change the issue.
    >And that the entire sport seems to be becoming rather ungracious,

    Whether someone started a ride or not is hardly a little thing.  It
    goes to the heart of the integrity of the sport and its records.
    >I also stated that I know greedy RM's, and that Duck is NOT 
    >one of them.  
    I agree, but that is irrelevant to the question at hand.

    The fact that our records are not perfect is no reason to accept not
    reporting early pulls as starters.  You may regard that as minor, I do
