      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Pussies and Bullshitters

Recommended Posts

Over the past couple of years I've read more BS about how cc.com is too mean to newbies, too vulgar, too this too that. I offer my own case as an example to newbies:

 

-lurked for 8 months or so, laughing my ass off and generally enjoying the reading.

-started posting one day, and once I started I was hooked.

-like everybody else, I've had my disagreements with people and perpetually disagree with a few of them.

-BUT that's part of what makes it fun and interesting, and I have NEVER felt like I was flamed or intimidated.

 

And I deserve some shit as much as anybody here. Hell, I live on the Right Coast, and until a couple of months ago, only a couple of people here knew it. I'm a gaper who only has the basics in gear and only has done a little peak-bagging and slogging on glaciers. But I love the mountains, and the little bit of time I've spent in the Cascades is some of the best mtn time I've spent. If I lived where you guys are, I'd probably be out every weekend possible. Instead, I enjoy the spray, enjoy the TRs, dream about doing more and Hell, sometime in the future I just might get a chance to scramble or slog with some of you.

 

The point is, ANYBODY who has the interest can post. No lame excuses accepted. And IMO all the folks claiming that they have untold numbers of anonymous friends who won't post are Bullshitters who are simply saying this in order to shape the board into the way they think it should be. Well count me as one who says "let it roll." As long as people aren't seriously threatening each other, it's just fine the way it is.

What RobBob said. thumbs_up.gif I started on cc.com looking for beta on Adams and got some god stuff. I also have been slammed because I'm from CA, the kiss of death to PNW folks. tongue.gif I've laughed, been annoyed, and even learned some stuff. If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. If people don't like what happens on this site, they don't have to log on. Hell, don't visit the site!!! wave.gif

Maybe the reason more people don't post is because there is often so little real talk about climbing, or trip reports. Good posts go so rapidly to Spray, it makes your head spin. moon.gif

I think that RobBob has a good point. You have to start posting to really have fun.

 

Come on lurkers, give it a try!

 

Lotus, n.

 

The fruit consumed by the lotus eaters. The lotus creates a state of mind in those who eat it which erases all goals, all memory of home, all desire to do anything except to continue to consume the lotus...

if you only post in other fprums you are less likely to see them turn to spray. If you don't like spray... don't do it tongue.gif

I feel guilty and ashamed any time I read this site, let alone post. You all are a bunch of pethetic losers. Damn, excuse me while I go wallow in self-loath.

RobBob thumbs_up.gif, I fully agree. If the board feels that moderation is necessary save it for the other areas, but NOT THE SPRAY SECTION.

People just don't seem to get that the Spray forum is a neccessary evil. Gotta have a gutter, or the whole street will be a mess.

 

Every city has it's ghetto, and people who don't want to go there either know to avoid it or learn reeeeal fast. Meantime, the rest of us flock there to get our cheap crack. grin.gif

I agree with RobBob and others for the most part. Spray is spray and I don't think it needs to be moderated much. If someone gets their feelings hurt in spray, tough shit. I never get offended by spray (expect when y'all bash my Bush) yelrotflmao.gif If you're thin-skinned, best stick to the other forums. I do think some of the non-spray threads degenerate in the spray to quickly and I wouldn't complain about more moderation in the non-spray forums. I'm talking about the stupid senseless shit that ruins good non-spray threads.

 

By the way - most of my climbing friends don't post or even lurk on cc.com. I'm not making that up. Guess they just don't feel the need or desire (or have the time). wazzup.gif
