Just like that the mean ol' thread is gone . . . Dean says the tree is at peace and Todd says we must all accept apologies . . . the rest of us are just vicious arm chair has beens. Whatever.

Still exists.

Unfortunately Kalimon, your choice of thread title will make it difficult to search for it in the future.

around here the important things
like courage and accountability are fleeting.

piss-fests, air-combat, and chests-beatings,
these are the ever-durable traits of

kalimon in the great spirit
of robert hunter you should have
titled your thread,

sex and death.
or something thrice removed from the audience's perception,
but intimately representative of your's intent.

'....since the tree-hacking thread got canned,
i figure supertopo needed another sex thread..."

actually,
my wife carries a different phone at work everyday,
and i'm always struggling to remember her
dynamic extension, so i study while we're having sex.

i call out her extension,

"oh, 6027 that's so nice!"

WTF?? It was there an hour ago.

Who leaned on who? Cause this whole thing has been a giant case of trying to erase all evidence of their actions from the web. Especially any negative reactions.

Lame.

I know fluoride they nuked it but in the end we all know who cut that pitch soaked bitch down it was JOE KINDER.

I still don't know who the hell this person is and don't care but someone cares about joe at ST.

It's butt buddies helping butt buddies. Whatever his apologie was weak spray sauce and it's time to out the crag.

If we don't get a legit reason for the nuking then I will out the crag and the masses will arrive to spray bolts all over the cliff and cut down trees as they see fit.

Like I say either we get a legit excuse for the nuking or I put a topo and map to the crag here later today.

Raymond that some here called out to be an arrogant, narcissistic mess of a statement and that those commenting negatively to it on his blog had their comments erased so everything came out as positive and glowing towards his "apology" on it?

What the hell...are his sponsors behind this? Did friends lean on C-mac to get this taken down?

You can't whitewash the web as hard as you try but goddamn they're trying their hardest to make this controversy go away.

It's censorship pure and simple.

He apologized, has letters written to sponsors, faces fines and'/or jail time...

What does he have to do to be worthy of the ST 'community'?

or, The ST mods stepped in to stop the sad mob rule tar and feathering that is happening here.

You people should get a life. The dude apologized, paid a fine to the Forest Service, is doing community service and planting trees, and has done his best to apologize and make things right short of magically repairing the tree. Certainly what he did wasn't right at all, and I'm not condoning it, but to continue excoriating a guy with such vehemence, all because you like the ugly, spiteful flavor of bringing someone down and watching them fall, is somewhat monstrous and grotesque, if not just pathetic. (But that's what this forum is, right? Despite the above message from Chris Mc.)

Climbers have been cutting down trees at various crags around the world for last 40 years, all before there was Instagram, and most of you are none the wiser. You think that that's just how crags have always looked, but it's often not the case. Admittedly, in this instance, the juniper was a mistake: but you all happily ski at Tahoe ski resorts that have clear-cutted junipers for your benefit and safety so you can slide down your groomers. You have ridden on mountain biking trails that have involved trail building and tree pruning. You have driven roads over passes to get to your crags that have cut through swaths of granite. This is hardly the worst thing that has happened in the last 100 years, let alone the last week. You're just bored and think you need to drink a tall glass of schadenfruede to make yourselves feel better about your own pathetic lives.

Ask if you're making anything better by posting your comments of spite and hate--are you achieving anything or are you just feeding your own fragile egos?

You complain about how poorly written his 1500 word post was while in the same breath you ironically spend hours and hours of your time reading 15,000,000 words of either hateful or smugly self-referential and self-absorbed drivel on this forum. You spend hours fellating yourselves over how great your california climbing culture once was while tearing down anything that doesn't mesh with this narrow view of what climbing should be. This is what this forum is to most climbers in the U.S. and most of us choose not to post here because this has become such a spiteful place. Not that I or anyone else expects you to care.

He made a stupid mistake. If you've never made a mistake it means you're either a liar or you've never done anything new or taken any risk in your boring life. He asked for forgiveness. Give it to him. Or don't. But move on and stop excoriating a guy who has, other than this single incident, done a lot for the climbing community and is a source of positivity and inspiration for many.

Patrick, take his lumps and not have a 400 plus postthread about his incident deleted.

Man up and let it stand. Stop censoring anything critical of the guy's actions. Cause his buddy Trad Larry above post is a perfect example of the whitewashing of this.

Trad Larry - nice FIRST TIME post on ST. Obviously you're a plant.

"your own fragile egos?"

Like those who chopped the tree then tried to erase any negative feedback from the entire web cause they don't want the bad publicity?

You're either a friend of JK or one of his sponsors is having you go through forums posting crap like this. Criticizing someone's illegal actions doesn't violate any terms of service here.
