This is the best moderated forum. Full stop. Shit talking is part of forums IMO (or needs to be). If someone opens the door then I feel obligated to kick them through it, and that has nothing to do with how little I know about this sport (which is very little). 20 year snowboard vet, or no0b...if you suck then it makes posting, and reading postings on this forum almost as fun as boarding. On that there are a few masters on this forum. Something about this sport attracts an interesting crowd with lots of potential to roast.
I'm pretty sure that helps..
