You can choose to ignore certain users, and their posts won't even show up when you open the board. If that isn't a costly or difficult option, some people might find it valuable, and it certainly cuts down on vitriol because people can easily avoid those they dislike or find bombastic or offensive, or whatever.

4. why is the side view the best way to analyze a hitter's mechanics?
5. what is "flail" in batspeed.com's terminology?
6. why do pro instructors feel they can analyze a swing without frame by frame analysis?
7. why is a stride better than a no-stride?
8.why is jack one of the few instructors who has done his research based on science and frame by frame analysis?
9. why would williams, macgwire , mantle, musuial and ott not fit with the ideal model of the perfect swing?
10.how many more hits does batspeed.com get than it's nearest competitor?
one last suggestion...since obviously some q's are open to debate e.g., stride vs no-stride, a FAQ could have one or more opposing viewpoints, authored by whoever jack my select...
