bumblesbounce,

I truely understand your opinion, I first went here for climbing and outdoor activities, but then I get addicted to this weird community (and rrrrrrradam is not the last to come and have stupid fun like us!).
So I don't know what to say, just don't be scared, we wont eat you! :wink:
And well, yes, I work a lot, got out, I just sleep a little and spend no time in the malls or in the house-job traffic. So it might explain why I spend so much time here. and I talk of the same things here that on the cliff or after a climbing day with my friends in the 3D-life...

this community is time-eater, but brings me more joy than pain, so I love it.

Things are only as good as you make them to be.
I haven't seen much of a difference in the content of community.
But then again, I got here after your incident occurred.
The reason I have a high postcount is probably because I work w/ computers and when it's not busy at work, I'm on here.
I'm stuck at a computer 9 hours a day 5 days a week.

And if you want to talk about kayaking or WW Rafting, start a thread about it. That's how conversation gets started.
I've been rafting.

I'd like to start kayaking.

when i was working all i did, all day long, was post to community :D my employer barely got a lick of work outta me for like 6 months :D

i don't know about pre 2003 community so i can't remark about changes but in the last month i've noticed a whole paradigm shift in our postings. I kinda miss our tawdry, steamy, ranting community. i met a bunch of great peep's from it. but hopefully most of y'all are still clocking in and i'll get a chance to tie up with a few more of ya.

now where and when is the bluegrass fetival that's being held in new york supposed to be?????????????

Most everybody's still here Fawn. And >99% of the users, just as before, get along well together both on and offline.

We just have about 12 times the number of active users we had 2 years ago. So it may appear excessively ranchous at times, but this is only due to the fact that those (the <1%) who like the drama, go out of their way to inject it.


This is a very popular Forum, and will always be, as this is where we talk about everything else from our everyday lives.

Bumblesbounce,

there are still plenty of forums to talk about climbing. I still manage (yes, through community) to find new friends and meet people to climb with. It's nice to find out what people are about outside of climbing. There isn't one person in community that I talk to in the coffee house that I wouldn't stand up and call my friend. There isn't one of them that I wouldn't instantly offer my guest bedroom and myself as a climbing partner. Community has become just that... a community!

Just my .02

I'll double that word. it's been a pretty groovy community so far from my perspective. rrrradam makes a valid point about the quantity of users now in community and the few of us who go outta their way to espouse their thoughts... ummmmmm am i one of them???? :D

Bumblesbounce, what's your problem with the MASS CLIMBERS thread? I've seen you rail against that a couple times. It's in the partners forum and by and large, *shock and horror*, we use it to arrange to meet to go climbing or spray about our most recent trips. Seems to me that it's exactly what you think this site should be.

Seems to me if you want to p[oint out useless threads there are a few dozen better candidates.

Baby's due around March 2nd.

Justice Conner, if it's a boy.

Nichele Lee Ann (pronounced Nik-el, after my sister who committed suicide 7 years ago), if it's a girl.

Nice. Kids named Justice can't help but be bad ass. Kids named Justice beat the crap out of bullies named Billy and give the lunch money back to kids named Simon.

She's just upset that she used to lieve on the Cape and is too young to drive so she can't actually climb outside.

Not only do I, along with many people here think that this place isn't what it use to be! YOU use to be able to talk about climbing freely! And not stuff like "Coffee" and "Sex and Climbing" and "Music" when the community forum was suggested A LONG TIME ago I was here as and different ego. And it was suggested FOR other stuff other than climbing I was intending kayaking, WW rafting, etc. NOT Sex, NOT Coffee and all this other stuff I see on here. And all I see is MASS BAY CLIMBERS THREAD! You know how annoying that is to me? Being a Masshole to poo like that? This site was orginally built to discuss climbing and meet parteners - not to make enemies. I don't see many of the orginal people that use to be on this site here anymore or posting. That is because mostly the newer ones have SCARED THEM AWAY I see people that have been here for a few months that have double the posts of me! What do you sit here all day and post here? That isn't a life. I would think that many of you have jobs. People here FOR THE MOST part aren't civilized and act immature. Trevor, Jared, Russman, and Adam built this site for all of us to enjoy - not to trash. And trash is all I have seen her for quite awhile. And guess what I only came back cause my name was mentioned in the banning thing - GET IT RIGHT I WAS NOT BANNED I WAS ASKED TO LEAVE AND I SAID I WOULD LEAVE! And only post here with positive stuff... not negitave against me... cause I know certian people hate me before they even know me...

Right on Adam. (Thread hijack!) Just don't go naming your kids stuff you'll regret.

My brother named his daughter Roxy Roo McNamara. That's frickin' sick. He sometimes laughs and goes, "I effed her up, huh?" We all call her "the Roo."

Scary.

Don't forget to counter balance this with the Nano Sphincter Cross Haired Wire Pinchers Injection Tools. Without it you're able to get unbalanced readings in your pendulatory membrane receptacle. Which then would lead to complete dysfunction of the counter balancing system?

I love WW kayaking, although I do not have a boat. :cry:
I am part of a Canoe and Kayak club though that does weekly pool sessions in the winter. Good fun, but gets boring after a while. I can do a roll, but have never managed to do one when I've actually overturned by accident and not just for practice. :x

rafting. I worked my way through college by guiding multiday river trips in southern utah every summer. Desolation Canyon, Westwater Canyon, Cataract, Green, Colorado, San Juan Rivers. yeah. I miss it a lot. multiday whitewater trips make everything else seem trivial.

For several years, me and my friends would also do a big river trip every spring break. they were always epic occassions of debauchery and comradery. I'll have to tell ya'll about it sometime. we actually built a frame that allowed us to mount a full keg on the back of the raft. mmmm...

yeah. rafting.
