Pull up a chair, and grab a glass (I know I have).
Short version: irul.
Long version: I'm on my second pair of K2 skis. I used to spend a lot of time on their site. They had a discussion forum, which was normally pretty sycophantic, you know: "K2 make the best skis in the world, so, what size of K2's should I buy" etc. There were a few on it who were a bit more boisterous, including someone going by the name of irul&ublo (not sure if it is our irul). Anyway, every day he would make posts to the effect of: "I am the best skier in the world. everyone else is useless." One day, one of his posts went a bit further, and crossed "the line". One of the other posters replied with: "I bet you haven't the guts to say that to the likes of Todd Murchison on EpicSki"
Now, I had heard of Todd, and thought, well if this is somewhere that proper skiers hang out, then maybe I could learn things here. I lurked for a couple of weeks, then I dived in. That was a year ago.
The rest is history.
