It's just that SO many interesting threads devolve into a Steaux's harder, gnarer, meaner, steeper etc., and it gets so old so fast and so predictably, not to mention that the "facts" change depending on the thing being discussed.If I had anything to do with Steaux, I'd cringe at having someone like him being a self appointed spokesman.
The "hey look at me, I'm the village idiot" stuff some may find humorous, but threads I've been interested in have turned into a crappy mess in only a few posts, never to get back on track due to his juvenile insistence on being the center of attention. If that thread was deleted because it was a crappile, then who started it along that route? And the other times? Sure, easy to say that you can just ignore, but in reality you can't - every thread becomes Steaux against the world, and trying to get it back on track is an exercise in futility.
Let's ALWAYS remember that thread where the bro-brah nonsense came crashing back to earth when there was an actual - "let's do it", then suddenly there weren't enough excuses in the world.
