So is that thing for real? I fled the thread. I can see some Mighty Hiking going on, that way.
As always, Cheers Anders.

Yeah, but we had a TITS THREAD!!! that was allowed by its O.P. to get way out of hand, and then was deleted.

Isn't that better than having someone like Anders around?

Someone who has posted on this very thread apparently thought so, because they could have deleted the offending thread at the time of their choosing, but chose to let it fester.

But apparently it was more important to that person to let that thread run its disruptive course, allowing more crap to be piled onto it, than it was to keep someone cool like Anders around.

Nice work, you guys. Proud moment there.

Nice work, you guys

Chaz, most of "us guys" posting here actually know Anders and like him. You are way out of line and don't know what you're talking about.

I admit I have never met Anders. I am gleaning my info from what I am reading on here.

If you know different, please set me straight. Thanks.

pissing all over each other is a uniquely Canadian trait. It actually how we display affection.

Since there are so few people in Canada, pissing on the next guy is an object demonstration of one's achievable range.

Once one's range is established lesser political comment becomes secondary. That's why Canada is governable.

Proving a negative is an extremely tough thing to do, and requires extraordinary evidince.

What extaordinanary evidence do you have to prove your negative, jghedge?

Zero?

That's what I thought.

So why don't you -- jhedge and donald thompson -- get a room somewhere and work it out in private.

Why can't you self-centered losers take your endless stupid argument somewhere else. Somewhere where you won't piss off everybody else with your childish need to score points off someone who is as much of an as#@&%e as you are.

I think what ghost meant to say was; "If you could take your off topic conversation elsewhere and delete those posts it would be much appreciated."

That's soooo true. I can't for the life of me understand how you guys believe that Shrub's jackbooted approach to 9/11 stopped any further attacks. That negative can't be proven, yet you guys buy it hook, line & sinker.

No, Mike, what I meant to say was that jhedge and Donald Thompson are a pair of selfish as#@&%es who have absolutely no regard for anyone other than themselves. You could start a thread about the death of your wife, and the two of them would soon be all over it screaming about which of them was the bigger loser.

Craig Fry (Dr. F) started a thread in which people like that could vent their inadequacies. It might not be a fun place for most of us to visit, but in theory it serves the useful purpose of allowing people like jhedge and Donald Thompson to post on Supertopo without screwing things up for others.

I know you're trying to pour a little oil on troubled waters here, but the time for that is over. Be nice, and they'll just march in and sh#t in your punchbowl. The time has come to tell people like that to take their bullshit outside.

Hedge, DT, Get a room to yourselves
and fight it out there. I'll supply the knives or guns.
Just as long as you promise to use them on each other.

Doesn't sound like they are against each other but actually on the same team.

Supertopo has 2 teams, which one are you on?

I've got to say the most f bombs in a row that I ever heard in my life happened at a motel outside Castlegar in BC, where I had to spend the night on the way to my sister's place. My room was unfortunately near a bar frequented by bikers who reved their motors and shouted out creative ways of effing each other until 4 am. This was after my sister had assured me on the phone that Canadians were much kinder and gentler than Americans. The only difference I could tell was that mercifully, they didn't have guns.

Since folks seem to bemoan the lack of climbing content around here, I would politely point out that on balance, ANDERS >>>>>>>infinity>>>>>>> the offensive photo thread.

That some of you are behaving worse than kids on a playground, ganging up and piling on whichever individual you've chosen on any particular day makes me wish I'd posted the stories about my birth parents elsewhere.

But here I am. Y'all are stuck with me.

And since you asked...

Anders is one of the most knowledgeable, kindest, funniest, generous and downright decent people I've had the pleasure of meeting. He is unobtrusive, but you'd better believe that he misses nothing and appears when he's needed.

And we do need him here. This forum is a much less soulful, humorous, touching and awesome place without Anders, and the many other folks that have been run off in the short, roughly 10 months since I joined your campfire.

Can no one see the opportunity being wasted here??? How often are you given the chance to stand on even ground with historical personalities, your heroes, past, present and future? Why are people driving them away in DROVES?!

Sigh. I can't believe I got trolled into a rant.

But I WILL sand up for folks I'd be proud to call friends.

Edit:
Bruce, that rant is hilarious and awesome. :D
