Let me start by apologizing. If you are offended by any statement that follows, well, it's intentional.

OK. Attitudes like yours are what keeps the human race from evolving to its full potential. This thread is obviously intended to ruffle feathers, and illustrates your need to feel superior to everyone else. Why does someone holding a sign in celebration of their accomplishment bother you? It certainly doesn't affect you in any way, directly or indirectly. "Newb"?! Who do you think you are Mr. 25 peaks? Plenty of people that can be found with a summit ID sign have more mountain experience stuffed in their socks than you'll ever gain.

Again, why do you care? Why did you go out of your way; making a special point to attempt make anyone who uses these signs feel inferior to you. And with your "newb" comment, you offended everyone who is just getting started. You've also represented us as a community in a horrible light. I'd hate to think that someone about to attempt their first fourteener might decide not to because they think anyone they meet on the mountain is going to be like you.

In the end though, all you've done is use the internet to volunteer to the entire world how childish and insecure you are. Posts such as yours are the reason some people prefer paid subscription forums.

Do we have an ignore function? I'd prefer never to have to sift this users garbage from the rest of the posts.
If it's tourist season, why can't I shoot them?

I think I peed myself just a little.

This just got good. :cartman:
"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat." (Theodore Roosevelt)

There's a new girl in my life and I'm hoping for a first ascent. Would a sign be appropriate ?

people like me print out these signs to show that we have accomplished something that we are proud of, to get proof for a charity(mine is Climb With Jack), and to show our friends :) because only the people that have climbed it actually know what mountain you are standing on. and who gives a rats *** if people do that if it makes us happy and you are not affected then it should not bother you.

Talk about thread necromancy.


Why post in every thread that comes up, whether one has something to contribute or not?
