Really getting some classic lines here:

Even if you beg me to post in this very important thread, I shall not post.
I've left for years too - or did I really leave? Well I didn't post and rarely looked at the site for long periods but I've got reams of printouts from threads. Internet groups are weird I mean everyone just has to show up and look at the site to 'be here'. If you don't, you're not. I would say people notice, but what are they going to do? Hire a PI to come find you? Make a movie with a "Come Back Shane!" line in it?

but I didn't really leave. I poke my nose in here from time to time. I read what I want, I ignore the bad, clique-y stuff, and the bad advice (sometimes I laugh like hell) and read the good stuff. (Love those trip reports!)
I never skied with any bears. Well, ok, I met my significant other of eight years now on this board. I guess he counts. I skied with him.
of course, when he was posting here, I thought at the time he was a egotistical know-it-all a$$hole who I would NEVER ski with let alone buy a house with. Yet here I am!
(Actually, he is a egotistical know-it-all a$$hole but then, that seems to be the way with all of us ski racers, me included. dont know what it is really....)
but the point is, you never know with one of these places. take what you want and leave the rest. no one is forcing anything down your throat.
oh well. sometimes a good flounce is very satisfying i guess. I would rather just laugh at the bad stuff and glean a bit of good information now and then, you know, the occasional tip, the trip report, the partner for life...you know, those little things.....
Does he know you're posting here?
edit: LindaA !!%^&@#$%^&!! wow! welcome back!
I guess we end up with this!!:

From the movie Shane
Kid: "Shane's comin'! He's got his gun on!"...
Marion: "Don't Let him go Shane!"....
"You're both out of your senses. This isn't worth a life, anybody's life!
What are you fighting for?! This shack, this little piece of ground and nothing but work, work, work?! I'm sick of it! I'm sick of trouble!
Joe, let's move, let's go on! Please?!"
Joe: "Marion, don't say that. That ain't the truth. You love this place more than me!"
Marion:"Not any more..!"
Joe: "Well even if that was the truth it wouldn't change things"
Marion: "There must be someway Shane! Someway!"
Shane: "It's no use Joe"
Joe: "No use, well what's stoppin' me?"
Joe: "Am I gonna have to fight you too?"
Shane: "That depends on you"
Joe: Lunges towards Shane
Marion: SCREAMS ...No!
Scene: Fighting, horses whinny, pigs snort, cattle, fences breaking...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mj93Y...eature=related
