      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!

Spamming my PM inbox

Recommended Posts

OK, this smells like spam to me. Is anyone else getting this shite in their inbox?

 

I'm new to here, let me tell u a little bit about myself first:

 

I started hiking/backpacking since April this year and did a lot of trips in my leisure time, and have been a hiking/backpacking leader for a Chinese online message board(in vanouver) since then, I learn and applied backcoutry knowedge and awareness at the same time.I do enjoy it and started to notice how beautiful the surranding area of vancouver is.

 

here are some this month trip reports and pics I posted on a online outdoor message board.

I've never met MazeGirl, but I know her from clubtread and one or two other outdoors photo groups.

 

She gets out there, and she takes nice photos. I think her climbing ambition exceeds what ClubTread has to offer, so she is trying in her own way to approach more advanced message groups.

SWR,

So she's legit? She really does get some nice shots.

Yep, a real person.

 

I've corresponded with her about some of her photos, and she's organizing a ClubTread dinner this Friday if you wanna come up to Vancouver and meet her smile.gif

Why, thank you kindly, Ma'am, but Ah must respectfully decline your generous invitation. smile.gif <southern drawl>

I'm looking to head southeast for some granite love in the Clearwater Mountains of I-dee-ho come Friday evening.

You're such a skeptic Sobo! Looks to me like she might have mistaken you for someone of Chinese extraction, and hence a possibly friendly face and easy first contact here. Doesn't look to me like she has anything to sell.

 

She's likely not real familiar with your posts though, aren't you a middle aged married guy with Sobo being short for Soboleski or some such?

 

Anyway, judging from her linked TR's, I'd guess mazegirl might be legit, so there's no reason to be anything but polite at this point.

 

On the other hand, it's also possible that Chaps got bored and crafted a troll just for you using some poor bystander's postings on another public board to prop up a new avatar's pseudo legitimacy. If you have any questions, PM mazegirl on that other board.

I too, received a similar email with what appeared to be a pretty good deal. Apparently some hot young virgins want exclusive access to the contents of my pants, free of charge. There were some catches, however.

A beautiful woman sends you a friendly email and you automatically assume she's an evil Spawn of Spam.

 

No wonder you guys can't get dates wink.gifGeek_em8.gifcantfocus.gif

 

Hey now waitasecond, SWR. I turned on the charm after you told me she was legit. I was just feeding those other guys shite after my post about not being able to come up to Vancouver for the dinner. I see your winky/geeky/crazy graemlins, so I think you and I are OK on this. thumbs_up.gif

OW,

Everything you say above is true, with the exception of the friendly face. My countenance resembles that of a hound's butt. Surely, that would scare her off. yellaf.gif

Chaps is an idiot, and much too stupid to ever come up with something that inventive and devious. evils3d.gif

my current mission is to convince Kim Jong-Il to sing "i'm so ronery" live at the superbowl halftime show. wish me luck!

 

seriously, engineer contract with the AF. the funny thing is that i was never really interested in rock until i left portland and came here. without the year round snow i had to find something to keep me entertained.

So, did maizegrrl PM any chicks, or does she just want to "befriend" guys?

 

 

And if she is PMimg folks to evolve in her message group postings (as SWR suggests), why doesn't she just do what other chicks do when they find cc.com; post their measurements and say they want to "learn to climb", "meet new people", whatever. Those initial posts are always a kick in the pants and there have been a dearth of them lately.

 

Just interested in keeping up the quality of this site and all... smirk.gif

You make the fatal assumption that they were actually chicks.

 

La-la, La-la, Lola ...
