BA lets the idiots know what's up.

'nuff said.

Also the mods (<3), but BA tears in to them first.

life IS good.

I learned this the hard way and got a lot of shit for it, but i learned so much from these people its not even funny. They helped me when i was being a complete fag and when i wasn't, so please stop being ignorant and spend some time on the forum before beaking everyone.

If youre going to pick a fight on the internet and be an equal combatant, dont go crying to the moderators and admins when someone hands you your ass on a plate.

This also is not about "taking things serious on the internet", it is about the main purpose of this forum being a place for people to gain legitimate advice about everything snowboarding in an evironment that is overall welcoming and friendly. Heated exchanges are fine and we allow these things to go on and are very liberal in our moderating. However when a thread devolves into several pages of name calling, it has served its purpose and will be locked down. We rarely ban people here but unproductive threads are getting shut down.

As I said in that thread, having a proven track record of helping people and contributing goes a long way here and while I sometimes cringe at the delivery, these veteran members have earned some extra lattitude that a member with less than 6 months on the forum has. When you pick a fight with one, do not then send a report post to the admin team asking us to take action against your oponent. Had I not recieved that complaint, I would not have even looked at the thread. I could care less about pro snowboarders and stats and all of that spectator crap that so many people get all caught up in

Blunted nose`s point is correct, learn who these people are before jumping to the wildly innaccurate and silly conclusions that happened in that thread because a couple of people got butt hurt over the response they got.

Not everyone sees the internet as some freak show for their personal entertainment like MPD; some people are using it as a tool to gleen useful information and do not appreciate the high noise to signal ratio and juvenile antics that goes on with threads like that. The purpose of this forum is not to be a circus side show for a few weirdos to get their rocks off, but to actually serve the snowboarding community with access to good, reliable information.

Try to treat people as if they were standing in front of you and your having a conversation....
CaN i Haz Sn0wBrd L3ss0n's? You seem like a man of wisdom. I kind of wish you had the money and time to make reviews with BA, because they would be the best of both worlds, and fucking awesome... Honest but intelligent.

And the truth of it is that these two are the people we want moderating this site. They have their heads on straight, yet can be screwed up enough to laugh with us all. You really won't find any better moderators and admins than this website has.

Agreed... I appreciate the honesty of this site. Very helpful and honest but quick to call someone out if they're a fucktard.

As for why we have ANY off topic section, that is because people also like to socialize and shoot the shit about other topics. With regard to the politics section specifically, which for several years now you have had a personal vendetta against, we are not discussing a thread that has gotten out of hand in politics. In fact, it is rare for threads in politics to get out of hand like they do in the gear or general section such as the thread in Question. If you hate the poltics section so much, why do we frequently see you post in there? Granted your posts amount to little more than trolling and you do not contribute anything constuctive or intelligent.

Bottom line is this is just another attempt on your part to attack the management of this site and like so many times in the past, attack me personally. You don't like me, we get it. You were warned by Killclimbz last time you pulled this shit that the next time would result in a permanent ban. Your opinion is as irrelevant as you are to this site and other than your east coast meet which is tantamount to buying "friends" you contribute nothing of substance to the site. I advise you to drop this and just keep your mouth shut as you were advised or I will put a suspension on your account and you can talk to Killclimbz about being reinstated. I am not going to fuck around and play your little games any longer.
Thanks for shutting down the thread last night...it got out of hand with personal attacks...keep up the good work
