There's bad apples in every group, same would apply to boarders, split or otherwise. Why would you single out one group when the issue you describe is spread evenly? You were generalizing a whole group of mountain users as "kooks".

That sticker has been out for a while. I can't attest to what happens in CO, I've only been in the PNW. If that's the prevailing attitude it's just one more reason why I don't want to visit.

Flyfishing is the same deal. A few bad apples but mostly good people. But I will say having a popular movie come out upped the douche factor a butt load. BTW: no bait on the lower Deschutes.

Now you're being obtuse. You were doing exactly the same thing you called others out for. Who needs permission to've got almost 15k showing you definatly don't.
