"sitting here woot-less"

Fantastic response!

Bummer. Sorry to see him go. Hope his 25,000 plus post remain.

JEleazarian-
Few people add more to this site than he

Really?
By name only.

To me Werner is one of the great disappointments of the supertopo forum.
To have a legend, who lives in The Valley, with vast experience and insight, post not much more than useless or bitter babble and bump lame threads....it's just a bummer.

Much respect for Werner, the human.
Not the avatar.

9 out of 10 posts were becoming very toxic. Of course the 1 out of 10 were usually very insightful and helpful.

And though I hope he took a break and is focusing his energy on the good he can provide to this world it wasn't happening here in my observation. I found it sad to witness as it wasn't always that way.

Doubt he took a hiatus - usually a disabled account is for a reason the admins determine.

He helped me a ton both times I did Facelift SushiFest and I have a ton of respect for the man for many many reasons. The avatar...

That's so wrong. Love to see Werner back. He was never malicious unless some dumbf**er like Crankster attacked him first, and his climbing resume was 2nd to none. He added a lot of spice to the campfire, although it's true that the word crankloon was one of his more overused ones.

To Werner, my very best to you sir. Hope you are back soon.

So silly, couchmaster. Grow up. I made my own peace with the avatar awhile back. If he's gone it's by choice. Either voluntarily or because he ignored warnings from administration. I hope you're getting them, too.


Or maybe it's just a break to work on Hillary's campaign and he'll be back after her inauguration. Personally, I could care less either way.

I hope Werner is doing just what he wants, regardless of how he got "deactivated."

This place bled out a number of times already. It's like a Zombie. I'm good with the Zombie apocalypse.

It's like Burning Barn

malemute, I know I posted here way to much after my husband died. But this place was less expensive than a shrink and way more helpful. I've made many real time friends here and walked into a new life working in the outdoors, leaving a job I never cared for. All thanks to the people here around the campfire.

So, you don't always know what's going on in other peoples lives. If Werner liked to post here, so be it. Who cares how many times a person posts here per day? Jess sayin', lynnie.

This is the kind of insight that I'm talking about...

Dale Bard took the big whipper on it. Couldn't get anything in and went for it. Took the rope between his legs and got his vitals.

He came back to C4 bleeding from his balls.

When in doubt run it out .......

Anyone who posts on supertopo multiple times a day doesn't have much of a life.

a totally inaccurate troll statement given the ease of access to the internet

I have never met the inimitable Herr Braun. He's certainly way up on the list of people I would like to meet from the ST, given the opportunity.

Many of you may not be aware that back in his movie making days he was instrumental in the creation of this video. Which instrument? Who knows.

Given the boot pffft - he gives it.

Toxic? I was surprised how many of his posts are on non-climbing threads, and many of those are certainly dripping in sarcasm, but come on! You'd have to take yourself and your political views way too seriously to have his comments cause hurt.

I could count on him for knowledge of obscure Valley climbs and incidents. Maybe because I met Werner in the Valley more than 45 years ago (he has no reason to remember me, but I certainly remember him!), I thought it was very hard to take offense at anything he wrote.

In any case, I'm with Lynnie on this. I've met a lot of wonderful people on ST, (she not the least!), and the variety of personalities and the relative freedom on this site keep it fun. And as others already pointed out, his posts aren't erased; his account is merely deactivated. Lighten up, people.
