Pretty much the only thing I will buy local is art and food. Maybe if an actual snowboard company made boards locally, I would buy... but only if I liked them.
I'm with YOU 100% dude....if anything good came out of this thread, this post is it...Well said!

Well, on that subject, I've been watching the thread and he didn't get to that level of tone -- or if he did, I missed it. In fact at the point where Options flamed him, he had backed down on his original rant, and was having a civil conversation (relatively anyway).

As to the other, please do feel free to write off this forum and go elsewhere. You may be Scott's friend, but I don't know you from jack. All I see is a huge bag of air who likes to flame people from the safety of his keyboard. If you've actually contributed something besides "atmosphere", I can't think of it offhand. At least BA contributes, in betwen comparing people to women's dirty bits.

If you don't think you can manage to stay away on your own, and you don't think you can behave in something even vaguely resembling a civil manner, let me know and I'll be happy to help you out the door. I've already made it pretty clear that "suicide by mod" is just fine with me.

So if people here are not wealthy how do they afford lake front homes 5 min from a ski resort (diamond peak) 20-30 min to the world class ski resorts and a brisk walk to the Hyatt Casino?? There is no poor part. I really don't care that much though man. I'd live anywhere as long as I can go ride near by...I lived at Kirkwood last year, I was living in Big Bear in November and December and the lake front home I was at in Boulder Bay Big Bear was twice the size of my house in Incline and half the price.
It's artificially rich is my point that you don't seem to pick up on. It's a city where the rich hide their taxable assets. If you are actually wealthy and not just someone's rich kid (which I don't care if you are but you strike me as someone who hasn't earned his own money yet) you'd understand what I'm saying. You say "the income here is the highest!" that's only true because people from San Fran who live 90% of the time there buy a 2nd home in Nevada and list their holding corporation that has all their true assets as being incorporated in Incline Village. So when the statisticians roll through they go "holy hell! Incline is the richest area in Nevada!" it's a farce man. You act like I don't understand the area and I do. I understand wealth, I'm from Nevada as I've stated and I'm an attorney who understands the tax code as my best friend from law school works for a firm that manages assets of the rich (your neighbors). I don't care if you are rich, I work with, hang out with, and work for plenty of wealthy people. Most of them are modest, you running around saying "I'M RICH I'M RICH" makes me doubt you as having any actual wealth beyond a trust fund and generational wealth. Being born to someone isn't something to brag about.

It's awesome to be wealthy, and I'd love to take six months off to just be a ski bum. So congrats on that man. But drop the attitude, I don't care what Donutz says you were flame baiting.

I'll tell you what I saw, for what it's worth. Rocksteady started a thread that was really nothing more than a rant. And a lot of people rebutted him, and quite calmly IMO. After a bit of back and forth, rocksteady said the equivalent of "OK, I give up" and started talking about towns or something. At this point I got bored and stopped paying much attention, so I'm not up on the details. For some reason, this is when you decided to jump down his throat. I'm assuming it's a "local" thing since you seem to have a lot of info on the subject. As I mentioned in the PM, your phrasing was just a bit over the line. Right now the "infraction" thing is looking like more trouble than it's worth, but that just means I'll be going with "2 warnings then suspension" which really if you think about it isn't any better.

As to yours and other's comments about rocksteady (Rocksteady: Hey, I'm standing here! ) he is by no means the only member who is a PITA sometimes with the sarcasm or the attitude or the condescension -- nor is he anywhere near the worst. But let's face it, I can't spend my whole online day running around slapping people with a ruler yelling "bippedy boppedy boo!". So I have a line, and if you don't cross it I don't say anything, and if you cross it, something happens.

And yeah, you've been here a few years, and under the "old system" you would have gotten away with it, and rocksteady would have been bitch-slapped if he responded in kind, and he and other members would be saying "WTF???". We lost comeback_kid and streetlegal IMO specifically because they tried to be mini-shredlifes and couldn't figure out why they were getting in trouble for it.

So, I expect a certain level of civility from everyone. It's not complicated. At least I don't think it is.
