Crimpergirl and happygrrl,

I have no connection to anyone involved in the incident.

You posted an incendiary threat title with a link, one that didn't actually click through, if I recall, and nothing more.

the idea that I posted this up with 'viscious' in the title just to bring out crackpots on supertaco is hilarious.
Regardless of the criticism of their motivitives and methods, climbers were whipped. Whipped. That is viscous, so is breaking out teeth with rocks.

How else were they going to change their blog to show they are not soliciting for donations if they didn't get a laptop first? Come on, people, think!

SofCookay, I guess Peru is too backwards to have internet cafes. And they said they were staying in an (expensive?) hotel, one would think there would be a net connection there, but of course, i could be wrong.

This story seems to have "divided" some of the Taco Standers, sort of like the Roy Keane/Mick McCarthy fiasco in Saipan in 2002, how it divided a lot of opinions in Ireland.


Hardman Knott, good catch.

Well, what do you expect? Some of this lot quote opinions like they're bible verse, while others post bible verse like they're quotes. A little idle conjecture I can see, but some clearly have the prize of being the top indolent twit in mind.

As for me? Zero centavos donated. This WHOLE fiasco, true or not, strikes me as a money grab, from start to finish.

Patrick Compton, why you call them "climbers" in the header of this tread? ( they are not)
And is this a pure coincidence that you become supertopian day before?
Are you Jackson Hole local climber? any good routes you can recommend from you home crag?

how do you know they aren't?
yes.
no, are you?

pretty sweet that I am now under suspicion of some nefarious activity just because I posted this story up. If Jeremy A had posted it, it would be goldplated sticky.

To be clear, I have no suspicion of your posting PC. Just curious about what I asked.

OP - can you shed some light on how the public funds are being spent?


I have no interest in casting judgement I just would like some accountability


For all I know its going to hookers and blow, you know?

There went your cred with me.

Although I too wondered why they were called climbers.

Last i heard, everyone on Supertopo will get a brand-new lime-green nano puff and a kitten. Just don't wear the Puff to Peru or 'you will be asking for it'. Just one glance at it's recycled, florescent perfection turns Peruvians in flesh-eating Zombies with whips.

Howdy Patrick, so says you, and of course the three travelers. I am not necessarily saying they were not, or that they were. But some proof would go a long ways.

And are they real bona fide climbers? I mean, aside from hiking up some peaks. I suppose we may have different definitions of what makes a climber.

And yes, somebody who is new to the forum starting the post doesn't really, in my eyes at least, say a lot.

I suppose you had your reason(s) for starting this thread and I can only hope it was an honorable reason.

And come on dude...

Opinions are like a$$holes... everyone on here has one.

Couldn't you come up with something more original?


EDIT

And why no climbing items in their list. Earlier on the thread somebody said why would villagers need climbing gear. Well, if they were setting out to rob these three, I'd think they would grab as much stuff as they could, climbing gear included. But again, I could be wrong.

absolutely nothing other than it is the only other thread i've psoted on and i had my post yanked. people love him and take whatever vile things he writes as law, but a new guy posts up a story copied from multiple sources on the web and somehow my motivations are under suspicion.

sorry i lost cred with you, I'll give you my nano puff.

OMG, you classless f*#ks - STFU already.

This is private money between the giver and receiver and it's absolutely none of your f*#king business what happens to it.

ok so I assume then that you have no idea either. Thats fine.


So here's the deal like it or lump it. No one has had the guts or honor to state what funds that are directly solicted from the public are being used for. If it is for Hookers and blow then state it and those who would like to contribute to that are free to do so. Then at least there is a public record of the intent and if they fail to use it for the intended purpose they would have to explain why instead it went to oh I don't know, Disneyland and Mitt Romneys next campaign or something.

I might have contributed if I had a reasonable idea of what it was used for.

I would only add that without accountability the only reasonable default position is to assume a Nigerian swindle or Hookers and Blow..... or 5000$ lap tops.
