"...One must first be an "Elitist Prick"...

The OP has not yet entered that arena..."


This is true. I am an elitist prick and it doesn't just happen, there's plenty of hard work involved.

Ya know, I just tend to avoid the "stupid" posts (like this one! LOL). Some how I allowed myself to get sucked in. What you dislike may be the bees knees to someone else, as well.

There are plenty of great posts on the taco stand. If your version of myopia limits you to only seeing the first page or that the only relevant topics are on the first page, then you are missing out on a lot. Looks like the mall also features the Short Attention Span Theater.

If you find a post you like, you can bookmark it, set it aside in a tab in your browser, or via other means. I've got enough of a backlog to keep me busy for a solid week and I'm sure there are many more that I've missed.

Start searching around. Stories from Don Lauria are definitely worth a pass. Or maybe the giant Stonemaster threads might be of interest. How about the many photo threads like Clouds, Who the Heck are you Supertopoans, Jello's Have You Ever Been Blown Away, or threads based on the legends and characters of climbing? These are just off the top of my head.

Bumping is a band-aid... treats the symptom, not the cause and rather inelegantly as Ed points out. Rather than "bump" why not make a short relevant comment?

You know, there's a whole genre of posts about "Why people post stupid topics on SuperTopo." You could spend a while just investigating those if it whets your whistle.! Seems seasonal that they pop up.

Excellent points Eric.

I would add.

The monkeys go crazy every once in awhile. It is a zoo after all.

Welcome to the delirious world of climbing insanity. You will be assimilated.

There is something therapeutic about throwing your sh#t at your tormentors. Try it, you'll see.

Wings of Steel would have been very different had the 'Rain of Terror' technique had been employed.
