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

I started that thread a while back -- http://www.snowboardingforum.com/off...ant-forum.html to talk about just that. Couldn't really get consensus. There were people who thought BA and Shred should just be allowed to rip, and people who wanted things to be civilized and country-club-like, and everything in between. I think it only really becomes a problem when a flame turns into a war that takes over a thread.It's also a problem when too many people start behaving that way at the drop of a hat, and the place turns into a yard full of cats.

Dunno, snowklinger. You want to start another thread about it? As long as it doesn't become a pain in kill's butt, I'll go with the flow.
I'm a newer member, but I love BA and Shreds delivery. It hasn't been directed at me yet, but I'm sure I'll say something stupid soon enough (like the OP's idea), and i can promise I won't get emotional over it. Nor should anyone. Everyone needs to remember the internet is not real life. Some body typing "that's fucking dumb!" likely doesn't sound the same in the reader's head as it would coming out of BA's mouth.

Back the the OP.... terrible idea.

When I say "that is fucking dumb" you can best believe I would say it to your face and not give a fuck if I offended you. Stop being panty waists about stupid shit like this. I'd want someone to call me a fucking moron if I talked about moronic things like that.

Oh Man!! I'd KILL for a 3-4 min. long local run!! Holly & Pine Knob's LONGEST runs are only .3 miles!!!! 90 sec. down, 7 min. on the lift, 90 sec. down, 7 min. on the lift. Wash rinse repeat,.. and all for 250-350 ft. of vert., MAX!!!

Still, I managed with my Cartels, and only needed to "sit" to strap in those first few months!! (...the board would often start to take off before I was strapped in!! Funny as hell to watch! Me racing to finish strapping in and a coin toss as to whether or not I make it or I eat shit!!!)

I understand wanting to speed up strapping in, but What does seem really stupid is,.. What reason do you have for wanting traditional strap in bindings on your front foot??? And if you DO have a reason,.. why isn't that reason good enough for the rear foot???? Makes NO freakin' sense to me!!!!
(...and I'm an IGNORANT NooB!!!)

Cause I'd love to slap the shit out of y'all little bitches.

You want something to mutha fuckin' cry about.
I'll give ya sumptin to cry about.

Fuck, I feel like I'm about to step into a church, every time I'm about to write something.



Speaking of whiny ass bitches

You'll never guess who sent me an apology PM this morning

Shredhed? Snowklanger? The Bumlickadventurer?

Nuh-uh.

Cheese-for-steezeweasel sent me an apology PM this morning.
Apparently he just had a metric shit-tonne of sand in his vagina way back when.
There was quite a lot, so it took a while to get her back into tip-top shape.

But, he has informed me that, he has got that sucker cleaned up & lookin' sharp. again.

They are not self cleaning ovens, all y'all whiny little bitches.
Just keep the sand out & it won't hurt so bad

I wonder if he took me off his IGNORE list though?


Ah, just fuckin' whit chya there cheezeweasel
It's all good.

Shredhed, Snowklanger, The Bumlickadventurer, I'm just fuckin whit chyou guys too.
You guys know that right

I love you guys - Hark

Couldn't agree more and no, you're not alone.

OP - as has been said, no good reason to do it.

Edit: timmytard better not go anywhere either. Always enjoy his posts, too (and thank God a new avatar...)

Just posted a notice to tone it down. We have guidelines of conduct that all members are required to operate within and lines have to be drawn. For some those lines are in different locales. What you might find funny, others find offensive and as admins and mods, we have collectively determined that these lines need to represent the majority and serve the greater membership. Additionally, we can't say that everyone must adhere to these guidelines with the exception of members X, Y and Z. Everyone needs to be held to the same standard. It is what it is and you are not going to convince me or anyone on the team that allowing everyone to call everyone retards, idiots and other ad hominem attacks adds anything positive to the community. Everything said could have been said just as effectively without the need to add, "you fucking retards". It's the way its going to be here and it applies to everyone.
To be fair, on this occasion there was really no ad hominem attack by BA. His point was delivered in an unequivocal and rude way but it was an attack on the idea, not the person. The closest he got to an ad hominem was the (admittedly rhetorical) question whether the OP was "retarded"? I can live with that.
No direct name calling, no insults, no suggestions involving a shotgun/dick and various bodily orifices, etc. A far cry from some of the more savage highlights of BA past - maybe Avran going all warm and fuzzy on us in his old age

It is always fun to read BA's comments on things and i'm not patronizing him at all. he is who he is and there are people do what they do cuz that's what they like. as someone metioned "Jackass",its like WTF? but hey, they like doing that so be it. BA's choice of words don't bother me.cuz i'm sure it can be worse but i'm a retired sailor so... that's nothing new. but as i said earlier, if the OP wants to do it, oh well it's up to him
