      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!

What I learned this summer from Merv Griffin

Recommended Posts

Wow, the summer is only 8 days young and I've already learned so much from our adjunct professor Griffin.

 

1. It is gross and inhumane to draw cartoons of babies dying. It is even worse to laugh at those cartoons.

2. In the old days we weren't so vulgar, shame on you. Our behavior on cc.com, our language, our morals, and our bad taste in film are so offensive to the Professer that well.... why the hell is he still here trying to educate our inferior, impenetrable, bigoted minds anyway?

3. Joking about people's heroes by calling them Nazis is insensitive to those who died during the holocaust. Nazis were bad in case you didn't know. Think Darth Vader... but meaner.

4. The phrase "in fact" has a specific meaning that you must adhere to. You can not use "in fact" to introduce a false statement that can be refuted merely by stating that the statement is false.

A fine summary. With amendment:

 

1) true dat! Well stated. I agree with you wholeheartedly.

 

2) Believe it or not, some things ARE offensive to others. I provide some perspectives that aren't usually found around here. Am I persuading anyone? A few from time to time. I've been thanked on several occasions for the presentation of my "radical" views on bolting etc. while others find my views obnoxious. And yes, there is a certain heavy degree of uncivil discourse around here hitherto unknown to myself and no doubt shocking to some others as well. I've also provided a lot of entertainment: funny stories and pictures, and a punching bag for the bullies.

What a country!

 

3)It is insensitive. (By the way, neither Bush nor Rush Limbaugh are my "heroes", nor would I call them Nazis). Meaner than Darth Vader? Yes. Darth Vader is a "cartoon". So are the clowns on "Hogan's Heroes" and "Seinfeld". The Third Reich's Nazi's systematically and purposefully slaughtered millions including no doubt relatives of people on this site. I have some friends that still have the tattoo's on their forearms. Calling someone a Nazi, or a babyf*%ker, is serious stuff and both in poor taste and potentially slanderous. Yet those sort of terms are offered quite readily and perhaps thoughtlessly. Go ahead, ask your local rabbi.

 

4)"In fact" does not work well with subjective comments, e.g. "George Bush/J. Kerry/Dwayner/whoever..is an a-hole" is an opinion, not a fact.

 

I'm glad I've been helpful in your education and values clarification. Now go to the library and do your homework, or sit in a corner and meditate.

Denny Terrio so wants me

 

The sexual harassment suit by Deney "Dance Fever" Terrio against his boss, Merv Griffin, was dismissed due to lack of merit.

I learned that throwing random photos into your post doesn't necessarily help your point.

 

Thanks, Merv! thumbs_up.gif

Duh. 'Cause arguing against bolts is morally indefensible. The bolt is a beautiful thing, and should be propagated accordingly!

Seriously, all the bitching and bickering and backstabbing and beta spewing and chestbeating and ethics wars turned me off from cragging. thumbs_down.gif The entire scene is too negative, too cliquish, too petty, and too narrow-minded. No thanks.
