I miss Sven. That guy was a crush master. The best part was how any and all humility got lost in translation. We need people back here who onsight 13c and talk about how none of the moves should be considered hard.

+1 that this site has seen a decline in honest to goodness arrogance.

The Ripster is getting bored with this. Can we talk about extreme gym routes now? Or muscles? Or refering to ones self in the third person? Ripped

There is nothing relevant to my contribution to this discusssion; just figured I'd bring the cult down a few notches.

How about slightly-stained. I have bad aim and a very low sperm count.


But I think there is only one solution to this.

LaDouche. . . You wouldn't by any chance be a grumpy menopausal woman would you? You remind me of this cowardly, virtual bitch that I once knew. You seem to have more of a sense of humor tho. Hmmm. . . Legs Magillicutty

"LaDouche". Isn't that French for "The Vag-vinegar"? OMG, the guy is French! That explains alot! Personally, I miss the old Boss Magillicutty days on climbingboulder.com. He was a troll with style, class and intelligence, unlike the smarmly little foul-mouthed pissant trolls you get like LaDouche. Yeah, CB.com...those were the days when people would actually meet at the Lumpy parking lot and exchange fisticuffs over the bolt wars. Ah, I miss the good old days.


I'm with Lee. I vote for Boss and Sven. Let's bring back some trolls with humor, forethought, and intelligence and restore this lost, fragile gentleman's art.

[crotchety old man voice]

In the old days, climbingboulder.com didn't even have a forum. We only had rocks, routes, comments, and photos. And that worked for us (and even Sven and Boss) just fine.

We could just turn the forum off and go back to that. No lame threads, no lame threads about lame threads, no existential angst about the meaning of lame threads.

Bottom line is how could you not like this site. No one said you have to troll the chat rooms like a pedophile.

If this site were a guidebook, it would be so expensive it would take most dirtbags 10 years to save up and buy it.

If this site ever goes away, it will be a huge loss. Do I need to know when MP beer night is...no. But why does that matter, some people come to chat, some to find great routes and beta, some both.

Damn trolling. Only makes for 100 more posts to state the obvious.

Sorry friends, this thread was no troll and yes, make fun of my name all you want, I've heard it all for 40+ years so at least try and be original OK? Anyways there is one point I failed to make in last nights rampage and that is we have this RULE#1 thing that most of us abide by, how about rule#2-if you havent searched the site before making a new thread asking a stupid ass question then you are up for getting heckled off the site?

I belong to a professional ONLY forum that is work related and the rules are clearly stated that only professionals post in that forum. Let me tell you it works. Anyone can read it and learn but posting just any ole n00b question is strictly prohibited. Mtn Project has a beginner section so lets encourage people to use it.

And as far as my n00b years there was no freakin internet to wank around on, people would actually work at work and climb to learn how to climb. Freedom of the Hills was the only read out there.

Anyways, cheers folks, the weekend is here!

I've been climbing for almost three years and still consider my self a "n00b" in some aspects. I'm just getting into leading trad and love to glean info from the insightful folks on MP, but I guess I wont post anymore because I'm a "n00b". Douche...

LaDouche-

Interesting you say this. Only yesterday I watched a long presentation (Link) that discussed your sentiment. I highly recommend it, though the relevant section is around 47:00 I think.

Any website community that grows is going to have it's newbie waves. It will also have it's newbie backlash waves, too. The problem is that newbies will keep on coming, so you'll just have to stay pissed and rude as you tell them to RTFA for years to come, as they never stop joining. That just doesn't sound like fun to me.

In all the piss-n-moan discussions in the past (I should tell you the one where a competing site threatened to sue us for defamation of character back in 2000), every single one eventually got resolved when people realized:

I've got something better to do than to bitch about this - Like climb.

LaDouche has won me over. From this point forward I intend to lace into any n00bs who want beta about things like "the best climbing areas in Colorado." Surely there are other n00bs working at REI who could help answer these type of questions. I will interpret Rule #1 to mean don't be a dick to established mpers. Forums are no place for gumbies anyhow.

Or more importantly, the Ripmeister would like to know who makes the best beanie. Prana or Arc'teryx?
