I don't pay much attention to the news or television anymore, so someone clue me in here. This was written 2 weeks ago (stated in SPAZ's emailed post), when did these tornadoes come through?

I know the death toll and it is over 337 dumbass!

Are you really so mind numbingly fucking stupid that you cannot see the point the add was making about how intense and brutal the weather in the mountains we love to shred can be? Have you never been on a 12,000 foot mountain in Colorado in a snowstorm being beaten half to death by ice pellets driven by 45 MPH winds? No! You come from the south; the ass end of America where family trees dont fucking branch! That add was perfectly understandable for anyone with IQ above 5 which excludes your stupid inbred ass! Backcountry.com was doing a great gesture in sympathy of what has happened, but there is always one sister fucking moron like you who gets all fucking indignant.

For your information, I live in the most seismically dangerous part of the country at the foot of a fucking active volcano so don't fucking lecture me about taking disaster seriously you sanctimonious fucking asshole! Next time you troll a forum get your fucking facts straight you self righteous fucking prick!

Fucking douche bags like you who go through life looking for any and every reason to get offended and get your panties all bunched up in twisted knots make me fucking sick to my stomach. Fucktards like you are ruining this country and I wish every douche bag like you would die in a fucking F 5 tornado!
While I'm the last person who cares about being 'PC' and apologizing for anything and everything that offends people, do you think this reply was a little 'over the top' for a grown man, let alone an administrator of a forum? Wishing death on someone who may have been affected by a natural disaster? Attacking an entire region of the country? At what point do people on this forum grow up? Especially the adults?

Last AP update I got last night reported 337 dead, 1700 injured and 100's of thousands homeless across 7 southern states.

I have once again robbed the piggy bank and given to the Red Cross. Japan wiped me out last month, but I had to send something!
great job man, i just donated a little myself.

It was a good idea to put a stop on the e-mail. This is an exceptionally catastrophic time for the US in terms of natural disasters. These tornadoes are hitting in record numbers, doing more damage than I could begin to tabulate, and killing many people.

That having been said, the advertisement was actually pretty funny. I liked it. I hope no one takes it out of context, it was just a bad time to send it. And let's be honest, people are being killed by natural disasters everywhere at some point, so taking offense to this add is a little silly. It was not done in poor taste.

What pissed me off more than Backcountry's marketing was how the news here seemed to think the royal wedding was more important...

It's not like BC intended to be insensitive to anyone, so yeah, Snowolf is right, people need to chill out and not get butthurt about every little thing someone might say or do that maybe you might in some way be offended by.

When your town and family are completely obliterated by a F5 let us see who is sensitive. Armchair commentators like you know only what little is in your own imagination and nothing of reality when making these comments.
I don't think you'd be commenting if you didn't have any power.

WOW. And Wow. This everyone is a prime example of why this country is in deep trouble.. You can type all of this garbage out like a ranting little girl but Id love to see you even whisper the F word in my presence. End of discussion.
