      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!

FACEBOOKING THE LOLCATS. BUT YOU ALREADY KNOW THAT BECAUSE YOU ARE TWITTERING MY BLOG TO YOUR IPHONE.

Facebooks are textbooks for those that study Oriental facial diagnosis.

 

I can tell by your lips you have an anal fissure.

I joined last month and all these people came out of the woodwork to be my friends. Some I knew (Hi Geoff! :wave: ) but I mean, come on, I barely met Steve House one time in Yosemite cause a guy I was camping with knew him and he stopped, I'm suspicious that 15 min after I join facebook he wants to be my friend. Some of those folks I don't even know if I'd ever heard of at all.

Being a friend on facebook only means they can view your profile. Is that so bad?

 

Didn't know that.

Is your profile private? I recommend setting it to private so that only your friends can view it. Otherwise anybody that comes across it can see it.

I like Myspace better...but I like climbing better than that...

What are you putting on your profile, Halifax? I figure anything I put on the Internet, whether it is "public" or not, is prone to being downloaded, reproduced, and made available in some fashion that I might not foresee or approve if I was actually asked about it. To me, the obvious best practice is just not to put anything private in your profile.

I never understood why anyone over 30 would have a MySpace or Facebook account. I guess that's just me. But here is some food for thought:

" Once a Facebook member, always a member.

The Consumerist blog noticed Sunday that the social-networking giant had quietly made a change to its user Terms of Service (TOS) on Feb. 4.

Facebook now declares that it has a perpetual license to use anything you post to your own Facebook page — even if you terminate your account."

It is interesting to just see the connections you have and how they relate to someone you wouldnt expect to have any kind of connection to anyone you know...yet they do.

 

Its way cleaner than MS and a simple and fun tool.

Yes!! It's kind of a safe internet virus if you will and you can surf unprotected... at least down there.

Quite honestly, Fairweather, I don't think you'd like it anyway. Facebook is for folks who want to connect with a broad circle of friends but it is not such a great place as cc.com to entertain yourself by farting in church or poking people in the eye. Abe Lincoln is a war criminal and I can beat you to the top of Mailbox Peak won't draw much attention over there and guarding your anonymity kind of defeats the point. Having been a daily poster around here for seven or eight years, but avoiding any pub club gathering, slideshow, spring picnic, or ropeup makes it fairly clear that you aren't into the networking aspect of this site.

Wasting time here is one thing, but seriously, Matt, adults who hang out on networking sites are usually lacking the personality traits which allow them to connect with real people in the real world. Please tell me you're not one of them. BTW; you sound angrier than usual this morning. Everything OK?

Are you serious? Bro what do you think cc.com is? It is a way to “connect” and “network” with other people with the same interest. Mostly climbing…….how else would you have met your buddy kkkkk? This statement is utterly ridiculous considering your 5000 posts here. Your hypocrisy is astounding.
