So... I have been wondering what the thoughts were on "poaching" trenches. Seems to be a hot topic with some and I was just curious what people thought about the issue.
Guilty as charged. I can be included in the above statement, because I've made snide comments about people poaching
Sometimes it's all in fun, but sometimes not.

Because I'm a jackass, and a curmudgeon, and, well, isn't that enough?

Guilty. I'm glad I'm not an a**hole under this category.
Only climbing when there is a convenient trench? Weak, but not an a**hole.
I have not done that! Not an a**hole!
Intentionally starting late to let others lay a trench down so you can cruise? A**hole.
I have not done that. Though there's someone on here that is known for it, and that bothers me. Hello, teamwork? Lame.
Bragging about how fast/rad you are after letting everyone else break trail? A**hole.
See above comment.
I recently took jabs at someone on 14erW about trench poaching
. I meant every word of it. I don't care. He probably knows about it. I don't care. I'm an a**hole.
Interesting thread, but I would have titled it, "The Art of Trench Poaching
I did not vote.
