I stand corrected!  My nieces both took English as part of their education in the German realschule.  So there ya go!  They just aren't great at it!  :D  So at least in Germany, I believe you are correct in at last the upper two tiers of education.  The lower one, umm...hauptschule..I'm not sure.

Seconding what @marznc said about PugSki...it's not a forbidden word. There's plenty of room on the internet for all of us skiers. I've not posted or joined PugSki, but I have lurked there. My observation is that they are able to have discussions there about certain instructional systems without the problems we have because on PugSki a majority of the members know one another in real life. 

 

I'm not making a blanket rule, but from what I can observe, the majority of the posters know at least Phil and Tricia in real life; or if not they have been EpicSki members for such a long time that they know one another in that sense. EpicSki is a community many magnitudes larger (We have 2000 people online at this moment, they have 63). With new users signing up on EpicSki every day, there are going to be people of all sorts posting on here. PugSki is too new to show up prominently in Google rankings, so the people that end up on there tend to have some kind of connection to one another. Human beings in general are more likely to be snarky when they're responding to something on a monitor than when they're actually having a face to face conversation. I guarantee you that these debates would be different if they happened on a chair lift instead of a forum. On PugSki, many of the users will see each other on a chair lift and it keeps things more civil. If PugSki grows to be even half as big as EpicSki, they will have the same problems we have.

I think I get the same feeling over there. Too bright and clean , almost like a hospital lab. One needs to hit some rough edges from time to time.


Speaking of casual sh*ttiness and rough edges, when is SteauxBro coming back?

You won't find him under this name — the late lamented Josh.

That's no his real handle. ("Names have been changed to protect the innocent.") He is a twice banned bit of spice in this gumbo.

The discussion -- more or less competent is definitely a civilized one . I was wondering why such a discussion wasn't possible here on the original Epic and they needed to go in a kind of a " Epic 2 " space to discuss ?   What do you think ?
Simply because we are setting a tone and an expectation of a higher level of discussion in all areas of the forum, on a clean slate. As some have Viewed as squeaky clean smile.gif

Important announcement for all the fans of  the so called Josh Matta -- he posts on the other forum free as a bird and there are absolutely no signs of possible bans there .

The bigger problem is why can't there be any instruction thread without people getting nasty? I don't even read them now. They'll show up on New Posts, I'll peek, and exit quietly.

Because people who care enough to discuss ski instruction with enough passion to be nasty are often financially involved a their ski instruction.
