I plan on hanging out at the City with Donini & Rodger, too.
Sometimes coordinating through the Taco has been useful. But it's not necessary. Another in a growing quiver of options.

Apparently some people believe that every passing moment should be dedicated to spiritual, physical and moral betterment, that there is no time to "waste" on frivolities and foolishness - like gazing at fun bags. It reminds of the preposterous term, "gratuitous nudity." If you need to be told why this is the motto of a sad sac and a frumpy, constipated killjoy, there is little hope for you IMO

Brokedown, why are you quitting posting? Gezzzz, we are a community....crazy and comprised of real, true individual's but we are campfire. Right?

This begins to take on the aspect of a losing high school football team. Now, we find out who is for real in those stands.

Largo, another good post and pic. :D

Donini is not quitting.
He's just going under cover with his Special Forces Group.

Does the term "deadhead" have anything to do with the lack of brain function?

I thought that "good head" referred to something else.


Man, what a drag I was just getting Jim back into music scene.

All those photos on the boob thread said "click to enlarge" I thought it meant the boobs, but after clicking I realized what it meant.

Lynnie-

I've just decided to "lay low" for a while, and lurk. There's been just too much self-righteous spewing that attacks others personally for my tastes. And rather than attack friends and alienate people, I choose silence as an option. I still love the website and have too many friends here to abandon ship permenantly. See ya in Yos!

This forum is a very special place and perhaps the most interesting protracted conversation in which I have had the honor to participate.

The main shared experience base is testing ourselves in the rock solid environment of challenging mountains, which submit to no BS.

However in some important ways it does not feel safe here. I often have to withhold things where I would really like to share and invite comment. When I can anticipate negative bullying that will drive out intelligent commentary, than I just bite my tongue.

I would just like to note again that those who persist here tend to be those who can rise above chronic disrespect, BS, bickering, and bullying.

That fact does not speak well for a number of contributors, both crude bigots and overly intelligent opinionated bullies.

I also think that we have a few people here who are not really much or anything in the way of being climbers, but more like agents controlling the conversation within authority-sanctioned versions of reality.

This is a climbers campfire discussion that should be safe for people to express all sorts of wild stories and speculations without overstimulating disrespectful bullies. At a real campfire we have the spacial dynamic aspect of being able to just walk away from disagreements, crude comments and bullying.

I suggest again that if the level of mutual respect rises and the level of bullying fades, we will entice in or back many of the people who are our climbing heroes and who we would love to hear contributing.

It is wonderful to participate with people like Donini, Largo, Jogill, Jstan, OldGuy, and such. But there are other very thoughtful people such as Royal, Layton, Jello, Croft, etc, who rarely venture into the conversation.

It is also disturbing to me that there are very interesting people here, who I don't have a clue of their real names. Make this place safe for open discussion and they won't have to hide behind weird avatars.

Dirty bunch of greezers Jesus!
What a sorry little lot!
I used to dream
That I would meet a prince
But God Almighty,
Have you seen what's happened since?
`Master of the house?'
Isn't worth me spit!
`Comforter, philosopher'
 and lifelong shit!
Cunning little brain
Regular Voltaire
Thinks he's quite a lover
But there's not much there
What a cruel trick of nature
Landed me with such a louse
God knows how I've lasted
Living with this bastard in the house

Donini will quit when you pry the blue Camalot from his cold, dead hands.

The Donini NIAD@70 project is one of the most awesome things I've read about here in a while. I hope you'll stop by once in a while to keep us posted on your preparations, Sarge!

The Donini will crush the NIAD in his own way.
