I don't think that it is a common problem. At least for me it's not.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Its really easy.. you have to replace the screws with anodized bolts and washers.. I did this with my P1's. Take a bolt and washer from your deck, go to the hardware store and ask someone to get you anodized bolts and washers that match your rusted ones. Anodized is a treated metal that prevents rust.

This should prevent the inserts from rusting, however if you have rust in your inserts they sell rust remover in a spray.

Prob cost $5 bucks at the most just for the bolts and washers

i like to sacrifice a manatee, boil its blood and blubber inside of its skull, smear that all over my naked body and then wipe down my snowboard with butter.

Burton screws are nice, if they fit - stainless steel with plastic insert to keep them from vibrating loose.

If you get new screws, make sure they are steel or stainless steel, not aluminum.

A little rust shouldn't matter functionally, also I would have thought most inserts are stainless steel. Is this a major problem?

I wouldn't say it's a major problem, then again I'm not sure what to expect. I just bought my first board and realized that it would rust eventually since it will get wet each time out.

This is bad advice. Manatees are very hard to move into your sacrifice chamber. Also, manatee blood sticks much more to any surface it touches than other animals' blood. The cleaning up time doesn't justify the effect even though it does get rid of the rust quite well.

The suggestion with the butter is spot on though.
