The sub-sophomoric trash contained in the post of yours that I just quoted does not belong on EpicSki. This is not PowderMag, this is not TGR - This is Epic. What makes this forum so special is the absence of posts like yours. Before you come barging into a place with 35 posts in a couple of weeks, some of which even you admit to being intentionally edgy or provocative and/or borderline self-serving spam, I suggest that you learn the culture of "the house that you are visiting".
I'm guessing that what triggered your rant was that someone anonymously sent you a seriously irritating private message. As I would tell any child when something analogous happened to him, the proper way to handle a situation like this is to report it to AC, the owner of "this house". You don't throw a tantrum in the foyer; you don't lash out at shadows.
The former approach gets to the root of the problem (eg, if serious enough, AC can track the dotted quad IP address, find out who the offender really is and boot him off Epic.).
The latter approach (the one you used) debases the overall quality of Epic, inching it towards the havoc of forums like rec.skiing.alpine. Also, it definitely lowers people's estimation of you, and hence, your business.
Hopefully, AC or DC will simply delete this thread before too many people see it.
Please calm down and keep your posts on-topic. You are obviously expert in some aspects of skiing and your contributions in these areas are undoubtedly greatly appreciated by many EpicSki participants. Your last post was not.
