I have often had people come up to me and say things like "I like the things you post..." on here, or on RC.com(a few years ago, not much going on there any more).

When I ask what their username is, they often don't want to say. Sometimes they just don't post much, or ever. People would be surprised at the number of people who keep up with these forums but never post. But sometimes I get the feeling, when they act weird about it, that it is because they are embarrassed about the stuff the do post. The ones who say "it's the internet; it's not real" are generally in this category.

Yeah. . . the lurker/poster ratio is a lot like hummingbirds at a feeder. . . they say, if you see ONE at the feeder, there are another 1,400 out in the bush!

Burchey, you seem to be fitting in pretty well here, and you seem to be just about the same as over on the Whitney boards.

This atmosphere is a lot more open, don't you find?

Ken, I would definitely say there is a different vibe. That's not to say that one is better than other, but for general climbing beta / discussion / mocking of one's peer, Supertopo has the edge.

I also feel like I'm less of a dumba55 these days, so that might have something to do with the relatively extended lifespan of my account here versus other earlier forums.

Not sure if you saw it, but some goofball from CC said he followed me here to expose me for what I was, or some nonsense.

What's to expose? It's pretty clear to all that I'm awesome beyond comprehension, right?

Right???

My daughter told me that somebody from her gym recognized her from one of the pictures I posted here. He said something like "I didn't know your dad is Moosedrool".

Ha ha! The real world and the Taco are completely separate, except for Big Mike who straddles the divide like the Colossus of Rhodes.


For me this place is just a microcosm of the real world. But one is even more accountable here since the words are recorded. I do enjoy the ability to be able to learn from others in different parts of the world, and gain immensely from the knowledge of all things climbing which is extremely rich here on the taco!




Big Mike...

You have both my admiration and respect.

Anastasia, wow! Little old me? ;) thanks. I just try and treat others as human beings... Pretty simple really. I am human also though and sometimes I get a little carried away as well.. Like I read recently, the important thing is to realize when you're being a dickwad and make amends. ;)

pagenmonkeyboy! I hope that we are all signed up, & getting these fat ST internet royalty checks!

I've been rolling in the money, ever since I started posting on ST!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!!!! Sorry a bunch of supertopo can't figure out one night of happy. I get cussed out and personal messages against my family etc... when I comment on super topo news. Nice tolerant folks! Keep smiling my friends just "why do you want more cash, that is rude and wrong"

This guy is a tough one. He's like the anti-OP of this thread. Every word that I've seen thus far from him is either a swear word or some random string of nonsense.

Yet, there are tons of pictures of him posted up (lookin' fresh, might I add), and he uses what, we can only assume, is his given name.

Kudos to you, Jeremy, for not hiding behind an anonymous avatar when you post things you should be ashamed of.

werner is an ascended master. i'm not sure if that's above or below deity. on supertopo, we all begin as avatars, which gives us a head start on this process.

so burchey is tom cruise? that means we see his double out climbing, right? that would be ron kauk.

it only took one picture with a can of miller genuine draft for me to loose all, i mean all, of my respect for jebus. it went away faster than healyje's for TC.

Please refrain from emailing me and take your nonsense/trolling/stupidity somewhere else.

Hey Jeremy,

I'm trying to figure out if you're really as dumb as you let on with your posts, or are you just jackin... Went through some of your old posts, and I don't see any signs of higher functioning in the several I went through. I'm guessing you're just not that bright. I'm also guessing that's why you feel the urge to keep posting the same makes-no-sense comment.

Any thoughts on the subject? I feel like you might be the Chief's new apprentice.
