Leaving Epic in a Huff - Page 4

post #91 of 104
We notice the departure of regular posters like you, Pierre, who just drop out. But if you're not reading and posting, how should we entice you back?

I'm also ready to hear about your boat trips.....things like this also help to cement good vibes on this board. It's not 'just' about skiing, ya know.

By the way, how's bizness?

Yeah but they tend to have husbands who might not agree...

edit for clarification: That's a comment referring to my long-ago single days, gang. (OK LM you can stop beating me upside the head now!)

Ya' know, sometimes they like to have fun with their husbands!

I suggest that rather than remaining silent, one may suggest to the poster that the topic is redundant, and the topic would be best addressed by doing a site search.

OTOH, silence can also mean that the poster is an idiot.

I suspect that most folks would prefer to know how their posts are being
taken rather than be greeted with silence.

You can leave in a taxi. If you can't get a taxi, you can leave in a huff. If that's too soon, you can leave in a minute and a huff.

Is skiing the kind of formalized sport in which the rules never change? If that's so, we don't need continuing education or even an ongoing dialogue--we just need a Style Book.

I don't mind going over content again and again, because sometimes a new perspective puts it in a completely new light for me. That's part of what makes skiing so exciting.

Sometimes? What about OTHER times?

Funny how people sign up for forums and want to be accepted like they're part of a family or something and then they leave in a huff when they don't like a couple of topics or other people. Find a local church, bar or charity to find friends. Morons...

This makes so much sense . When a teacher resents the fact there are more new students that will have the same questions, make the same mistakes ,they should no longer teach.

When another finds joy in the sharing , finds thrill in watching others gain a new skill and feel honored to be a part of this they should be commended and honored. by their peers and their legacy of the knowledge shared

Nolo . is one such person

Thank you, Garry. To read nice words about yourself on a Monday is a treat indeed.

I second Gary's opinion.

Third that.

I recently met a local Bear who just found this site in February. One of his comments was about the search feature and how worthless it really is. He has a point.

You can't put in two words. You can't use asterisks. You can't put in ideas, specific information, and when you do put in a specific word, it pulls up all kinds of threads with just that word in it.

With some of us, it's not about lack of trying to find what you need. It's also about not wanting to wade through piles of irrelevant stuff. I've tried to find certain threads before and remember a quirky word I used in it, and thought that a search would Surely bring it up. No way. It's frustrating.

Patience.

I agree, Bonni. We need to figure that one out. It may be that we just use Google to do it. This is a good one for us to do over the summer, I think.

Huffing is not healthy.
