Man, don't even start on that one.

As for the "bashing"...

(1) Do a forum search on my screen name and the word "burton." You will find a zillion posts where I have torn people apart for bashing Burton for no substantive reason. Until last week, I owned a Burton. I would buy another one again, in a second.

(2) The humor of this thread was bashing the people who bash Burton for any (absurd) reason they can find (and the subject line was a total invite for that). That is exactlly why I called out a notourious burton-basher (zumies) in one of my posts. If you also look at my past posts, you'll also notice I have often given such people just the amount of fodder they need to make themselves look pretty silly. In the snowboard world, often all you need to do to make the "Borat sequal" is mention the word "Burton." At that point, people will put on all kinds of dog-and-pony shows for your (as this thread now evidences).

Netstalker as a noob obviously my opinion doesn't matter

I never considered buying a Burton because were I ride all the rentals are Burton. Also every time I am at the hill seems like everyone is sporting Burton head to toe like they are sponsoring a mega team. Mind you I do have a Burton helmet and stomp pads.

It was more or less Sedition and I making fun of bashing like we usually do, even though I am a basher. It's like the old Chevy vs. Ford thing, all the rednecks are still friends in the end and no harm meant.

Sure, I own a Burton board, but I was in no way offended by anything that was said. I understand people have their brand preferences and I was just agreeing that we put too much emphasis on brand names....like I said, a board is a board.

My reply wasn't directed at you but rather the previous poster.

You forgot it because it had very little impact on the discussion and it was meant to be for fun.
