Moderation is an interesting problem.

And no, I don't care to follow a TGR mod around for a day :-)
It has been quite interesting over at the mothership, modding the kooks, some that are over the top zealots for their respective teams. Maybe it's a bit brash and tends to get nsfw in a heartbeat but the community I've met thru the tgr's has been top notch folks!

You are welcome to follow me around Alpental for A day:-)

There's definitely a good side to contributing to a community of folks who  share a passion!

And yes, that's a "follow around" offer I'll  happily take you  up  on!

Wait. Using sarcasm, the lowest form of comedy, would certainly qualify as a reason for a life time ban on any forum except maybe TGR. How certain are you of the facts here? I wasn't around then.

Disagree (but that's like my opinion man).
Everyone has a personality and a way that they express themselves (including you and your "get-off-my-lawn" persona). To each their own.

Banning someone for sarcasm alone is just another version of intolerance.
You have an opinion, fine, just remember that it's your own and that others will make of it what they will.

Dear nch and ncmg- i sent a pm to the admin. here and requested that if you guys find any of my posts to be improper or that i am not being accurate in my posts-just pm me or the admin and those posts will be gladly removed from the site.

i'm not here to defame any guides or your companies, and try to be accurate and truthful in my reporting.

I'm here to give other bc skiers in my community an idea of what it is like to have to be a public land watch dog and deal with the conflict (safety,social and envoirnmental) that comes from having to re-create and share terrain with motorized helicopter access to our sacred mountains.

And please know that  you are most welcome to join the conversation, as your pov on these issues is missing and would be educational.

thank you, chris

As Steve Irwin used to say, "Easssyyyy black snake."  Jesus Christ!!, we're reading and writing about skiing! 

If you don't appreciate what the (unpaid) moderator does for us (thank you moderator), start your own f'ing site.  And publish the URL... I'll be one of the first to join.  Or, go ski something and write a trip report instead of reading Random Tracks. 

WAITING.  Snowflakes!

Sorry, i didn't see your post until just now. I was trying to be sarcastic in that post you quoted.

Sarcasisn doesn't translate well using this imperfect form of forum communication.

the truth is, when i joined the site, i sent a pm to the admin requesting that pnwbrit be unbanned (if my memory is correct).

No, you did not.
are you sure about that?

back then i didn't always check the save box for my sent pm.

i did check your messages to me and there is a response from you when we were discussing censorship.

in your pm to me it's clear that we talked about pnwbrit, and knowing myself, i would have sided with pnwbrit against an authority figure.

do i have your permission to post a quote from your pm concerning  the matter?

Or, maybe you have the pm that i sent to you that i didn't save?

Que music-que dialog ''this has been another episode of 'as turns all year turns'.''  peace out

quoting to display my long-standing signature line.....

and scotty, you forgot about the english teeth thing.

PNWBrit( Banned) is my BFF and powder brother. I will act as his surrogate, his Kellyanne Conway no less.
My official statement on this issue is.

" PNWBrit was banned for being very snarky about some tourists avalanche protocol and became involved in a dispute with Marcus where accusations of hypocrisy was directed to each of them by each other. He was then banned for life. Being English( a miserable race , full of self -loathing  disguised by weak chins and stiff upper lips), his innate level of snarkiness and highly developed uber-sarcasm was too advanced for the PC inhabitants of TAY. He  is extremely proud of his banning and reminds us remaining users of the TAY site  that know him, that we are inferior as we have not yet been banned like him. He would never rejoin even if given a full acquittal as he considers all of the TAYers ( Including me, his BFF  Sad) as gaiter loving, hyper PC, self righteous clowns."

Thank You.

Tooth insult video.  https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=izrB19Av2vk

It was an insecure Scotsman who initiated the tooth insulting.  I was away from the computer for a few hours and came back to find PNWBrit had been banished from Tay so I assumed it had something to do with tooth insult piling on.  PNWBrit has since denied this on another forum.  Since I missed it I can only defer to what he said.  He did say something to the effect that if it made me feel good that I was the reason that he got banished then that was okay.  Those were and are my teeth.

My analysis is that the PNWBrit banishing from tay was probably collateral damage caused by some vociferous forum posters that were damaging other popular talk forums.  Maybe Elias' intern is still available to suss out what really went down.

GREAT VIDEO!!

Ha ha!  And yeah!  Video has close to a hundred new views since I reposted it.  Not my vid though.  MikeR did the editing.  I did some of the filming.  I think maybe Matt did some filming as well.  MikeR is one of those rare folks who can make skiing even funner than it is to begin with.
