      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!

Backcountry Comments in PI forum

Recommended Posts

If anyone is up for a valiant but likely futile exercise, check out the comment section under one of the Seattle PI articles regarding the lost snowboarders at Crystal. Lots of people talkign about the cost of searches and how the families should be fined. Even one person announcing that its no longer a search but a recovery. Anyway, I figured it would be nice to get more comments from people who actually know what they are talking about.

More people need to be beat with a wet cat until they learned to shut their pie hole unless at least moderately informed.

i'm not sure that some of our finest cc.com posters would come off as smarter than that lot. BUT it does beg the question is it worth the effort to try and educate people. especially that format? or is it complete wast of time and we should just walk away and go shopping for new tauntauns?

As the comments grow more numerous, it is apparent that the majority feel compassion for the missing, and there are only a couple of uninformed pricks who are preaching high and mighty. It's actually kind of refreshing to see that the dialouge turned to supporting the family and volunteers who are affected by this.

 

Ditto on the great post, Selkirk. You are more restrained than I, as I was planning to suggest that certain posters over there eat a bag of dick.

Your post on that thread is one of the best things I have ever read on any of the threads that are always created after an incident like this. I copied it and hope you will let me use it (with proper attribution) the next time this conversation comes up. Good on you for making such good, clear, strong points!

the answer is always "let's go shopping" as Hugh bobs his blond ponytail

All I can say is nice post Selkirk. I'm afraid it will do nothing, but it was a good post.

 

I'm used to dealing with dense opinionated people. Lots of sicilian and irish in my family :grin:

 

And it won't do any good to the ass monkeys, but I'm sure there are people reading it who are not yet decided and I hate to see idiots have an influence on anyone. And I'm just spouting off what I've gleaned from reading too many accident reports here and listening to actual rescue folks chime in.

They're the ones who deserve the credit.

And I thought all the dickheads and dildos were on this board.

Sheesh. Where is Darwin when these people are driving down the road with a dog in their lap and talking on a cell phone??

Darwin only applies to those too younger than procreation age, so unluckily favors those willing to start spitting out progeny at 14.
