Chris Wilson: Sorry Russ I didn't realize I had to be somebody who Is "known" on this forum to try and make a difference in a friends life. I'll just go burry my head in the sand and be a good little bitch so all you big shots can talk about doing something.

There's my rant!

This assures your little bitch status. Thank you.

I agree Russ. I should have directed my first post at you and not crimpgirl. You can dish it out, but you sure can't take it... I went back and read her posts so accept my apologies please.

Wow Russ you must really get off on being pain to people trying to help. This is why we didn't post here. Too many nay sayers. Enjoy your life and be well.

This looks like a good chance for Apogee or one of the other chronic RIP crowd to post a RIP John Long fundraiser thread...

Dear fellow climbers. John Long requested that we make a brief statement regarding his accident that occurred on 11/29/12 at approximately 8:30pm. John wanted us to confirm that he fell due to an unfinished knot, and suffered a compound fracture to the lower left leg. The rest of the details of the accident are John’s to tell.

Here is a direct quote from John, “Thank you to the Rockreation staff
and members for keeping it together and not panicking in the face of a very scary situation. I consider it my best moment when I saw the gravity of the situation and was somehow able to keep it together and receive the support of the Rockreation Staff.”

Point one: I've been on the NET since the UNIX days, just us bitheads then. Around 20 years ago this thing started called AOL, and well yeah, American came online. Been like this thread ever since.

Point two: Consequently, everything you do online, and especially a fundraiser or similar, has to be approached, planned, and handled carefully. Or it will lose its intent and potential.

Point three: Everyone I know loves John Long, a bigger than life character, our own John Wayne, but funnier. :) Clearly a working guy, clearly hurt, clearly we want to help him. But, if some thought could go into not embarrassing him in the process that would be most considerate on our parts.

As has been said since the www was burgeoning, "please read back over your post, and think for a minute, before you hit "send."

Oftentimes it's fun to write a big flame and then just delete it rather than post it. Let's off some steam, but then doesn't lead to a bunch of wasted messages.

So who is going to hold the money if Russ and Chris are on the under-card?
(My money is on Russ bitch slapping Chris.)

Dontcha love it when Taco noobs show up without reading the topo first and have nothing but a rack of draws?

I might be a noob to this forum but, i can trade bitch slaps all day long. Maybe Russ and I could raise a dollar per slap but, somebody else will have to hold the money to give to John. Now enough of this high school behavior and lets get on with helping our friend Largo.

It's heartwarming to see the supertopo family rally around Largo so cohesively.

I'm sure when John reads this thread he'll be stoked and filled with our love!
