The ubiquitous bearbreeder's account is no more. He was a regular poster. I wonder what happened? Maybe he has a new username?

I'm going to truly miss his usual personal service announcements - some in German, no less.

He had a great way of illustrating most of his points through pictures... for me that made it much easier to understand the concepts he was talking about.

Nice handle too.

Legend has it he still roams the forests of Canada breeding bears.

i've started posting considerably less due to a new job, but bearbreeder will be missed, even from this past weekend I can remember myself reiterating one of the sly tricks I picked up from a post of his!

My favorite Bearbreeder posts were of him constantly asking Ray about posting his night climbing photos.

In one of the latest Totem vs C4 threads he strongly suggested that Totems are inappropriate for internally flared cracks, in that way that he does... Someone posted an instagram photo of him that he may not have been very proud of. He responded with a video of himself soloing, and then posted about a "little lady" whispering in his ear, and her voice becoming too loud.

Survey:

Why do you think Bearbreeder left MP:
A) He moved off the grid to crush remote FAs in BC
B) Seeing one more thread about missing project draws was too much to handle.
C) Seeing one more thread reinventing anochors was too much to handle.
D) The PC shitshow that MP is becoming was too much to handle.
E) He fled North America, unable to deal with the idea that Trump or Clinton will be running his neighboring country to the south.

What's BPL? Google search produced Boston public library, football league, etc.

Recently, I've wondered about his not commenting on some obvious safety threads. Too bad, he's gone. His posts were opinionated, informative, and often amusing.
