Damn, you guys are really hazing BA for his saltiness, which has always been a highlight of the site for me. He's just not even gonna bother pretty soon...
Seriously, what weekend warrior 3 day a year tourist doesn't wanna be included in the "in" gang with people who actually make it their life to ride. Isn't that something of what this website provides? Coddling is not really part of the sport for us.
It just seems we've gone way over to kiddie gloves and censorship trying to make sure everyone on the intwebz don't get their precious feelers hurt. I've gotten pissed off and gnar with people around here before too and even discussed it with admins(just saying I'm not impervious to the issues).
Not harshing you guys, you know I love this place, but c'mon....homeboy tells interwebz "stupid idea is fucking stupid"(which in case you haven't noticed is his MO and actual LIVELIHOOD). Not only is the initial statement made in the best interest of the OP, but also is made for others to read later, for the good of all snowboarding(point being response is to the point and helpful regardless of rough delivery).
IMO honestly the OP is lucky to have gotten input from the person with just about the most experience you can get over a wide variety of gear.
Yea I realize it sounds like a suck off BA post, but I felt the same way a few weeks /months ago when it happened with Shred. These guys have stuck around thru some fallout and their participation around here is important to me(and I doubt I'm alone).
1. no I am not starting a war, I really love you all but jeez....seems like chill pills all around maybe....
2. either way the issue at hand is pretty lol and even if the OP and his buddy do it, it will be them alone... I think the "good" of snowboarding is safe from these 2 yokels :P
