A close friend did the first sit start ascent of that thing.

And people complained because I wanted to know who did the first all-gay (or all-lesbian or first trans-gender) ascent of el Cap!

Does THAT really matter? It's this PC Bullschitt that has dissillusioned me with this forum.

the bottom line is no matter who you are
you are either participating

or you are not

The act itself does not need to be discussed.

I've known brokedown for 50 years now and I've never met a more honorable person. If he is offended at something it no doubt has to do with his sense of honor. If others are offended that he is offended, what does that say about their sense of honor? Apparently from the level of obnoxious vitriol directed toward him and others, there are some who have no sense of honor and take pleasure in that fact. To each his own.

A point well made, which bears emphasis.

Some people express their vitriol, in inuendous
statements, so they don't have to be accountable for it.

I think it is quite stretch to make claims about a person's honor based solely on what they post in a recreational internet forum.

Kinda cheapens the meaning of the word "honor."

Rodger, I got too much of that in my academic environment. Want to talk about affirmative action (concept vs practice)? ;>(

Supertopo is just as bad and just as good as it always was.

If you are looking for mud to wallow in, there is plenty, just like always. If you are looking for smart and intelligent posts, there are plenty. If you are looking for climbing stuff there is plenty of that also.

If Supertopo is a negative experience for you, you are reading the wrong threads.

If a person only has honor on special occasions and it doesn't extend to recreation, then what kind of honor is that? Situational honor in my books is no honor at all.

So this place isn't even worth one's time, and yet it provides enough knowledge about others to assess their honor?



I'm gonna have to think about that one a bit....

It's this PC Bullschitt that has dissillusioned me with this forum.

I guess I'm cornfused. I thought PC bullschitt was when you didn't like people being too Politically correct. That they should speak their mind and not hold back. That seems to happen a lot on this forum. Its just that peoples minds are a bit in the gutter. So could you clarify for me. What is it that you don't like?

I thought you were leaving because of the rancor and disrespectful behavior.

I never said this place wasn't worth one's time, but I do think you can get a pretty good idea of people by reading numerous comments of theirs. If they're not the vitriolic people they pretend to be on ST, then that also shows you something about their character and a lack of consistency if nothing else. To me to be honorable, a person should at least strive to be consistently honorable. We all fail from time to time.

I'm afraid ST will continue to have an untamed, uncultivated element. It's impossible to prohibit individuals from posting on the internet drunk.

This is good.
