If this post 2027 when I clicked on it and already 2024, ever makes it down to 2000, I get a hat trick and Matt and others should be ashamed!

But i did it anyway, just in case ya'll suck

Peace

Ok I lied in a previous 2000 winning post, now deleted but copied below
++++++

At least this game is resulting in the deletion of dozens of formerly useless posts.

Like this one. I get to be 2000 again don't I?!

Peace

karl

Edit. as a public service I'm deleting my former prize winning post 2000 and reposting it here. All the crap goes in one shitter

+++++++
Screw you 2000 ho-ing whores?

Does that mean I get to be 2000 for a microsecond?

Orgasm!

Edit: I'm 1988 now.

Will Matt have to delete posts from way back to make 2000, and sacrifice his other landmark round-number posts to do it?

+++++=

Second edit

Now I'm at 2000 again! I'm quitin' while I'm ahead since there are 27 posts ahead of this, it's not worth going for the hat trick.

Beside Karl, & and that pitbull Coz, does this thread have anything to do with Half Dome, anymore?

Spencer, were you doing some sort of student teaching? If so, or similar, or whatever, welcome to our world! I really appreciated your perspective. I try to keep it real (more or less) from 7:30 to 2:30.

"who we are is bigger than what we climb."-brilliant!

The internet is an amazing place.
Where else can you get, in one place, every generation of Climbing, from the Big guys that show us that nothing is impossible to the gumby lurker who is stopping on the way home from Apple Valley (lol locker) to say a few words.

and then there's Matt. Not sure what to think of that. Hopefully this thread isn't dead yet.

In order that we might get back on topic..........

One observer on the Long Ago thread complained that a bolt was chopped "without getting a consensus in the community." The asymmetry here is quite striking. Those opposed to this particularly artificial form of resource development have not pointedly called for a consensus as regards any specific bolt. Generally we have said as a policy we should find an alternative to complete freedom in the placing of these. This asymmetry is not suggestive of movement. So where do we find ourselves?

Well, on the flatirons there was a rapid and strong action by the municipality when a tax paying citizen complained about the whine of power equipment and disfigurement due to chalk in a taxpayer funded city park. On ST there was a complaint that this was an over reaction by the citizenry. I have to presume that comment came from someone whose quarterly real estate taxes for Boulder CO were not onerous. Perhaps that person does not realize we are now paying as much each month in taxes as we used to pay for an apartment? There has been an expression that we should just keep going as we are until municipalities are forced to take action. But consider. What is a municipality going to conclude when the citizens not involved in climbing are complaining, and half the people who are involved in climbing are also complaining? I would suggest they will decide the problem is due entirely to a small group of people unwilling to respect rules of any kind in the use of publicly funded parks.

Then the problem comes down to enforcement, which costs more than the municipality can afford to pay. Well, they will find some form of enforcement that is broader, deeper, and less costly.

A question. Is this really where we all want to go? I really don't think so.

I've been in Mexico working for four months and away from all this, can anyone tell me if this is true?

Well, considering the egotistical, self-appointed, puritanical, steaming pile of "ethical" crap that you have laid here in this thread...I suggest you take your inflated ego back to Mexico and stay there. This thread in itself is a testament to your desire to pat yourself on the back amongst many of climbing's "elite".

"Rape" of the SFHD? What a load! Instead of demanding that the route be removed, go do it yourself. I'll just rap in and replace the bolts.

Jody,

Scott has a strong opinion which is different from yours. That doesn't make him an egomaniac.

Jody, 'Cozgrovel' is the real deal. I first made his acquaintance decades ago, now. He is passionate about his beliefs and his climbs, and he speaks his mind, even if it's not always to his own benefit. He does not speak up out of self-agrandizement. He speaks up because he feels a certain need, and he can't 'not' do so. If he feels it needs to be said, he will say it.

I don't think it bothers him that much that you or someone else doesn't agree. And I bet he really will have a beer with those guys if the chance offers itself. They may never agree, but they won't come to blows.

On a personal note, I think much of this dialog has been a good discussion of various points of view.

So to test the therory I picked up a rock and put it in my pocket.

I took it home.

The rock ran away when I wasn't looking .......

Interesting insight, Coz.

Although, I would be reticent to live life by Mayvilles philosophy, lol!
