The only thing Locker is doing is bumping a thread to create more room to thank Fatty more.

Who cares whether he would have donated anyway. It probably would have been less than $5100.

If you want to diss Fatty, there's plenty of other places where he's more vulnerable

But why not have the credibility to laud good behavior and following through when it's deserved. He could have let the whole thing slide with ease and got even less grief than he's getting for honoring his word

Thanks fatrad. I also never doubted. Jeff is one of those Dr Heckle and Mr Jive characters: likes to get everyone riled up on the internet and then fun and gracious in the flesh. At least he has the balls to not hide behind his avatar and puts his money where his mouth is.

I wonder if norton will apologize for making his butt hurt thread calling him out?
Seems unlikely.

Hiya, Rox!

I wonder why fattrad hasn't resorted to the rotational avatar strategy that Rox uses so effectively...

From now on, it must be The Kind Fatty.

Very nice Jeff, kudos.

Has to be because he will accept only full reinstatement.

Quite odd. Consider:

Face to face Jeff treats everyone very graciously. He certainly treats his clients graciously. He enjoys being around us at Facelift. So we know he thinks we have at least some merit.

He's not some fool thinking you can treat other people differently on the internet.

He surely does not think his approach sells anything.

Dollars in damages caused by arguments online involving fattrad: $0.00
Dollars donated by fattrad to help the community: $5100.00

Say what you want about fatty, he's only said words. Symbols on a screen expressed with 0's and 1's that we interpret in whatever way we see fit.

No, there is no need for him to exonerate himself - he hasn't done anything wrong. Talking sh#t online should be taken with a grain of salt - buyer beware.

Good on you, Jeff. Most of us here already knew you were a good dood, regardless of how much money you donated.

politically retarded, but a good dude :) jk...

It wouldn't take me 10 minutes to set up a charitable fund for a million dollars (in my name) going to the taco. BFD.


... can you do it? Please?

a) maybe because he doesn't give a sh#t.
b) maybe because he has resorted to the strategy.

He was probably going to donate the exact amount regardless...


I just DON'T buy into his sh!t at all...

He probably was.

That makes him someone who donates $5000 to climbing nonprofits as a standard practice, yes?

He probably donates at least that much to climbing nonprofits every year.

And that's pretty cool.

These are very generous contributions to three very worthy organizations.

A tip of the climbing helmet for your generosity, Fattrad. Best wishes, Phyl

Werner you smell that as well huh?

How about friends of YOSAR gives that money to Charlie's family to help with their costs?


Nov 14, 2012 - 12:30pm PT
I really have no power to do anything with "Friends Of YOSAR".

It was only my personal opinion if I did have such power ......

I want to give "Friends Of YOSAR" donation back to Fattrad.

It's got too much of Norton's sh!t all over it .......

You make that sound like it's blood money from drug dealers or something.

I must be the most pathetic person in the world, because I do not fully understand the vile on this thread. It is as bad as on some other threads. Sure I know the background of certain issues, but...

Am I being judgmental? Does a bear sh#t in the woods? Is the Pope Catholic?

Goddamn right. I f Fatty gave, fair play to him, if he didn't then it will be sussed out. Knowing jeff the short while I have met him, I believe, but some people have their knickers in a twist over Jeff.

Or perhaps those undies are twisted around their eyes and brains.

I don't know.

Some of the BS on this forum makes me want to make pancakes instead.
