      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!

CC.com and Northwest culture

Recommended Posts

I've had several people complain that Northwest people can be shallow and polite in person, keeping their true feelings and more controversial opinions to themselves.

 

The same people suggest that East Coasters, where I'm from, are more likely to tell you when they disagree with you and let it all hang out.

 

Perhaps CC works for y'all because you can vent your more volatile and odiferous parts here.

 

Do you think CC would have the same vibe in other places?

 

Oh, and don't hold your true feelings back because you're probably posting anonymously anyway...

I'm not saying jack shit in the way of malicious salacious gossip or mean pissy wit no matter how deserved cause people know who I am. And you could be right, however, I tend to tell folks what I'm thinking to their face, which is a huge fault of mine as several relatives can relay to you I'm sure:-)

 

:lmao:

It's threads like this that really crack me up...where else can you find this kind of stuff? Seriously...it's entertaining! Does anyone really take it personally?

I don't understand the premise of this thread.

I've met most of these people and they are assholes in person too.

Well, except for me.

It's an internet thing.

We are not alone.

I can assure you iam just as much a cocky bitch in person as I am on line. i yam what i yam :moondance:

 

can be damaging to the career though. I have been told that i would be able to move ahead if i lived in a larger city or in the north east. but i just dont fit in here.

East Coasters, where I'm from...

 

If you and your family weren't born in the NW please feel free to go back to wherever the fuck it is you're actually from if you don't like it here.

From Blakes article:

 

Peter Dunne, 42, searches Yahoo Personals for a potential boyfriend using the free Wi-Fi at University Zoka coffee shop. After living in San Francisco and Los Angeles, Dunne finds Seattle a social wasteland. “There's no sexual energy here at all,” he says. Seattle is “a city of the mind . . . a city of geeks. People here . . . they totally blow you off. And these are good friends, right? They just don’t call you. It’s unbelievable.”

 

who here has been blown off by a geek!?? what an unfair representation!

Washington drivers spend their whole life in the left lane driving slow until you go to pass 'em on the right, at which point they suddenly cut right and cut you off.

 

That describes cc.com exactly.

Seattle is not as cold as the rep.

 

I came out from a midwestern city that was control by angry lesbians (not that there's anything wrong with that). Upon arrival here, I remember spotting a pregnant woman waiting for a bus - something almost unheard of back there. "Wow" i thought, "Maybe men and women actually enjoy each others company on occasion out here". Back there, all sex between a man and woman is considered to be rape.

 

There are colder places than Seattle and I have enjoyed my stay here thus far. :laf:
