As a mod I think the worst thing I run into is when some one posts a valid point, in this case the OP, then others feel the need to nit pick and other wise be schmucks about the issues.
Seriously, outside from the old standard of Stop, Turn, then go Fast, this is a pretty good post on how to get fast. +1.
Oh... and I'm going to leave all posts as-is so those who replied as douchbags will always be douchbags. You know who you are.
