It is always interesting when someone continues to refuse to acknowledge the plain language up above. What had been very cleary stated was, verbatim, "the longest WC runs are lesser than 90 seconds in nature. Most rec skiers stop 10 times on the way down a 700 ft mtn." I don't hear you saying I am misquoting him, and in fact since I copied and pasted, I'm pretty darn sure everything is as he had typed it. Yes, IROSnow did try, in a later post, to backtrack as you have quoted. However, it's a completely inconsistent backtrack; people can read the exchange up above. Everyone makes oopsers sometimes, candidly what again seems more relevant is the insistence on trying to ignore plain language. Perhaps there are social or other reasons for wanting to do so, but that approach quickly can bring the signal/noise ratio of a forum to its knees, because it means bad information gets perpetuated on social grounds.
I am quoting myself because this is part of why it was so jarring to see tylrwnzl then say I'd quoted something only once. There has been a very clear, running dialog focused on specific language that was quoted. No one has yet said that my use of quotation marks was inappropriate.
A clear quote, well, is a quote. Someone simply looking to blow smoke could again try to distort things, and say, well, 'You only used the built-in quote feature once, the rest of the time you used quotation marks...' but that would be just another attempt at distortion.
I didn't want to keep belaboring the point, but it seems others keep returning to it, with yet more distortions of the clear language that had been used earlier in the thread.
