Friggin' asshole. Apparently, you lack the upbringing to be polite and helpful instead of an obnoxious ass.

Yes. I think people should have whatever attitude they choose for whatever reasons they have.

In my opinion, the RRGCC should stay. But it's ignorant to believe that there aren't other well thought out opinions to the contrary.

sprag, I am 100% with you. anyone who thinks the RRGCC should go away should never climb on the land they purchased. I still believe everyone should put up cash first, and then bitch. the rrgcc has been an amazing conduit of discussion, no matter what side you come down on. to be ungrateful for that discussion is like spitting on the pope.

I think spragwa was just trying to tell toad to be nice, there was no need for him to come off as a complete asshole. Its people like him that give climbing a bad rep and i feel insulted that he would even treat another person in the climbing community that way.

Yeah there are people i dont like that climb, but that doesnt give me the right to go around fucking yelling at everyone, for no reason.

secondly: don't even get me started on the "giving climbers a bad name" crap....you think the anal f***** poll is a better representation? you think the "do you get blown" poll is a better representation? do you think the "do you like dildos or black dicks better" poll is a better representation?

Did anyone get the really nice SCC update in the mail today? What a together organization. I sent them $50 once a few years ago. I still get biannual update. Whatever, I could go on. Triple Crown series, all the outreach, the industry tie ins with the organization.

Isn't there a difference between what's acceptable in the openly public part as opposed to the registered member only part? There's only a few thousand people that can read advice on water based lubricants in the registered member sections...

Actually, I thought that Toad's reaction was the perfect example of why some people find the RRGCC distasteful. Many people who disagree with them get called ingrateful idiots with a low IQ by a few very visible members of the board. The RRGCC does good works. No doubt.

ynp1 I would encourage you to look at the site (which gives very little information by the way) or to contact a member of the board if you have questions. If you'd like to speak to someone who won't bite your head of or lecture, contact Dr. Bob or Ryan or Bill Strachan. They're outstanding people who are open to discussion.

www.rrgcc.org we're there you're here c'mon over and take a look. :) Currently derbyfest is being planned and volunteers and participants are welcome. The rrgcc is like any other org. it goes through periods that are quiet between storms - and not everyone argees with the positions rrgcc - but the mission is noble - for you and I to be able to climb in the Red. Perhaps what the rrgcc needs is a shot of new blood in the arm from you - please feel invited to join, be active, and agree/disagree as much as you want. :)

check out the website. the last access issue was updated last june.. and before that last march. the representative's list was updated last august... 2001. three questions are in the faq section. in fact, the most updated site on there home page that i could find easily was from july of 2004 and that's a biography of wes.. is he still a member? the forum link doesn't connect me to anything but a http 404.

so you tell me. is it unreasonable to think this person tried to find some info but got the impression that sometime last fall the rrgcc died? don't you think they made the right move and came here to ask the people who are closely tied with the organization what the updates are?

sprag's completely right. just be nice and considerate. when you react the way you do you come off (and a lot of people do this) as being an elitist prick.
