      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!

Merv and Lambone booted?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone besides the moderators advocate for the banning of any of these four individuals? I have seen no evidence that anyone has a problem with these guys aside from the moderators, which strikes me as odd. If you are trying to develop a sense of community here, then why ban on the whim of the moderators rather than the intentions of the community as a whole?

 

I've noticed a marked attempt on the parts of cavey and gotter to engage in civil debate and reign in their threats. Potty-mouth and name-calling is something virtually everyone on here is guilty of. Mervs tirades are tiresome and boring/repetitive but so what? He adds flavor to the soup. Lambone's tirades were fun to watch as well.

 

Banning sucks.

I saw this card today and it made me think of cc.com and get- worked -up -over- nothing threads like these. God, who gives a shit? confused.gif

 

Anyway click on the attachment... cantfocus.gif

 

It reminds me of a great quote from a wise man too:

 

"Get a life!" - William Shatner to the trekkies. SNL. fruit.gif

Gottedamerung, from most of his posts I've read, seemed to be a cowardly, hateful, sociopathic individual. Civility was apparently no where even remotely connected to his worldview.

 

In Gotter's defense, my experience with him off this board is opposite of the impression you’ve expressed. Not trying to take sides, but since he isn’t here to defend himself, wanted to give a different perspective.

OMFG I can't believe I read all this! Do people really have this much to say about this? It would suck to be banned. Those folks seemed to relish participating on cc.com, so they probably felt a loss when they got banned, GotdamnI'myoung's vituperative rants aside (I just wanted to use the word vituperative. I hope I didn't screw that up!)

I find irony in that the two most left-minded moderators on this site, Minx and MattP, seem to be systematically banning most of the more outspoken and conservative voices on this board. Is this a microcosm of the liberal mindset in today's society?? I certainly don't see right-thinking Peter Puget or JayB banning anyone!

 

Does anyone else see it? BTW, Minx, your constant harping about peoples "reading comprehension" is grating, and one might say, a personal attack. You should try to mix up your insults occasionally. I sincerely don't think you were cut out for this line of work.

 

MattP, you could learn a bit of tolerance from your like-minded friend and fellow moderator, OffWhite. I don't like 75% of what the guy believes, nor he, I. But the man ain't banning everyone who says chop and bolt in the same sentence. I'm likely wasting my breath as self re-evaluation doesn't seem to be one of your strong suits.

 

 

I had the pleasure of mountain biking with both Gotterdamerung and Captain Caveman this past Sunday. They both seemed to be outstanding people whom I would enjoy climbing with....which is more than I can say for certain moderators on this site.

I think we need a hall of infamy on the site. A list of all the most notable banned members, some sample posts, plus the sick details of their bannage. "cc.com's Most Unwanted" shocked.gif Hmm, we should start a thread like that and make it a sticky. fruit.gif

These right-wingers were dangerous. They had weapons of mass idealogical destruction! It was necessary to preempt their right wing terrorism! evils3d.gif (You know, such as protecting the wilderness from illegal development and such.)

Fairweather, can you elaborate? I don't know who you are referring to you when you say that:

Hey Shuldt, you weak kneed apologist you ever hear this little ditty?:

 

First they came for the Jews

And I did not speak out –

Because I was not a Jew.

 

Then they came for the communists

And I did not speak out –

Because I was not a communist.

 

Then they came for the trade unionists

And I did not speak out –

Because I was not a trade unionist.

 

Then they came for me –

And there was no-one left

To speak out for me.

 

Well guess what pal, you folks with the spelling abililty of third graders are next!
