bonni, i could not disagree with you more.
if "MarkXS" actually regretted his post, he'd have edited it already. the fact that his post remians active in the 'acl-nerve damage' thread shows he has no such regret.
again, they're his words, bonni, not mine. take it up with him if you find them so objectionable.
i've been emailed by several bears who informed me that the guy has been sending PMs to them, suggesting they PM the m ods so as to get vlad banned.
why not ask 'MarkXS' if he regrets his post?
wake up and see the bigger picture, bonni....
Nope. No regrets. I am going to edit it to remove further "noise" from that ACL thread, but I stand by the comment.
But welcome back, dude.
Now if the length of the content in your posts exceeded your cool new signature tag, then your signal to noise ratio would be just ducky. Signature lines that are shorter than the content are de rigeur
on the internet - which of course you know. By the way, I'll be sending you the bill for the royalties for each post using a signature quoting my words. Quoting in a post is Fair Usage under the copyright act; using it as a "sign-off" theme in every post is not. Just getting it ready at my accountant's.
BTW: I didn't send any PMs about you to any members, vlad. I did have a discussion with a moderator, but you know that. Including reporting your vicious email which you sent through EpicSki facilities to me, that included sexist and homophobic comments. Wonder how the EpicSki community would like your attitude towards gays and women, neither of which I am, but which for some reason you thought calling me both would be insulting. I don't believe that either being gay or being a girl is considered to be an insult here. So calling me the "h*m*" word is pretty funny in being another one of your inaccuracies. But if you consider that to be a powerful insult, you're going to piss off a lot more people here. Just wanted your fan club to know your attitudes about both gays and women.
But no PMs to anybody about you, vlad, as disappointing as that may be to you. So when you claim "i've been emailed by several bears who informed me that the guy has been sending PMs to them, suggesting they PM the m ods so as to get vlad banned." either they are lying or you are. I'd guess it would be you. Gee, I'm surprised.
Like I said before,
"The guy's got a lot of knowledge, but honestly, the signal-to-noise ratio in his posts are driving me batty."
You'd have a lot more cred if you stopped your drive-by shooting of "guess who I am" and "I pumped with Arnie's buddies in the 70's so I know all about conditioning for skiing in the 21st century" and "I know when Volkl and K2 were in bed together" - and stopped being so coy about your credentials.
I don't claim to be an expert on any of this stuff. You claim to be an expert on all of it and more. So quit hiding. Or keep hiding (it's a free internet unless you're in China) but don't expect everyone to drink your kool-aid.
