Why I've quit participating on S-T. Probably others, too.

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.

A point well made, which bears emphasis.

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

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)? ;>(

The word honor is probably the second most cheapened word in America....just behind patriotisim.

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.

Logged on in 2006...Supertopo was a great distraction and procrastination from my then monotonous job...then I got fired from a new job in 2007 due to my procrastinating skills I honed in on here!!! Knew then I had a problem with the internet, Supertopo and other nefarious sites!!! LOL, but I kept on logging on Supertopo until 2010-ish?? Then I did the math. I looked up all my total posts (1,588), figured it took me approx. 2-5 minutes per post, and that's being conservative...it wasn't pretty.

I did the same thing for LEB and other high volume posters who shall remain nameless...LEB had posted the equivalent of 105 days (24/7)!!! Freakin' nuts! Life is too short to spend in the electronic void!

Anyways, decided that I should really focus on family, my daughter and wife, and haven't regretted a minute of it! Cheers.

Btw, Good job Broken Down Climber...I'll keep an eye out for ya at Fremont Cyn.!!!

Hey Jan -

Here's something your Brokedownfriend said on the Gay Boy Scouts thread, full quote:

So...Climbski2...are YOU a parent? The business of being PC pales into insignificance to parents. I'm hopeful that someday a grandson of mine will become a Scout, and I really wouldn't appreciate a sexual predator as a Scoutmaster. This is really an issue involving parents, and not the general public as a whole. So..if you and your butthole buddy want to bugger one another, have at. I really don't givva schitt.

There are at least three statements there, explicit or implicit, with which I wholeheartedly disagree. I bet you can identify at least two. Sitting around without voicing a modicum of displeasure doesn't sit with me.

My contributions to these forums are primarily visual. I've never seen anybody respond to a thread "needs more words!"

When I post a random photo, I do so as a fellow lover of mountains. If you love mountains - err, choss heaps - this picture is for you:

I don't care if you are:
male
female
straight
gay
white
black
Mexican
Christian
Jewish
Muslim
etc.

If anyone disparages any of my fellow lovers of choss, you also disparage me.
