Tony, the subject of the imbalance of OT threads vs. the kinds of threads that this Forum is intended for (and the related argument, 'Climbing Forum' vs. 'Climber's Forum') is so well-trodden and beat to death...what is your goal with this thread?

i think i stated my goal pretty clearly at the outset, but if you want the short version (haha, with apologies to dr. F, of course), it's to stir up all the flies that are covering the cowpie.

anyway, have at it. i was supposed to go climbing with medusa today, but he seems to be sleeping in, not sure why. i think an interesting thread idea might be: what effect would a buzzcut have on the nature of the 'duse?

Tony, not trying to rip on you, but before you go, nuke this thread. It's just taking up space.

apogee, old top, i get so goddam tired of all the calls to nuke threads. discussion is free, and we have to assume that chrismac's storage space approaches googleplexity. there's never any restraint about posting memory-gobbling pictures of fannies from below or seconds coming up on toprope. the big problem with criticism on ST is that people like you are control freaks who want to dictate to everyone else. i'm trying to loosen a logjam here, and you don't even seem to appreciate that.

Politics, God and Religion & Science is the root infrastructure of all humanity.

It's weaved into everything including climbing.

It's stupid narrow minded morons on this site who think climbing is only on it's own independent island .......

hey there say, tony...


wow, for a bit, you three here, have had a nice little chat going on, :)


just now (as i stepped in) noticed:
more folks are dropping in now, too--seems we are curious
as to what you got to say...
or--curious as what kind of 'analysis' is going on, :)

not content to d#@&%e on the progressives,
decided to lump half of climbers in with them

sounds like a general hate problem

not a issue with climbers or folks who want your kids to get a good enducation

Rather than increase the political content on page 1, as many have requested, perhaps this thread might be moved to the republicans thread.

That Bohemian Girl bit is a good read. Thank you, Tony Bird.
I'll refrain from analysis, though.

i hate to put it this way, but i find at least 50 percent of the climbing content on supertopo to be, how can i say it, way lame. that's the nicest i can come up with.


Wow, drama queen or what.

You bag on the OT threads, and bag on the climbing threads.

Tony, I've read some posts of yours that were interesting and poignant. But here, quit the over-analysis. Who cares how many posts _your_ topic gets? Unless you somehow measure your worth by SuperTopo acceptance of your ideas for generating responses.

In other words, give it a rest.

Classic wisdom from the great one:
It's stupid narrow minded morons on this site who think climbing is only on it's own independent island .

Morons should book a flight to the Island for Misfit Climbers
and get the help they need.
Its only a few miles from the Island for Misfit Toys.
