You're right, Shap.
It was hard to tell hate from the sarcasm because of all the self-righteousness, intolerance, and homophobia getting in the way.
Cut the guy some slack. I'd bet he's not even the same one who needed rescue in the GC, or did any of the other things packrafters have done out of ignorance. Maybe if they get a group together, it'll help regular boaters to educate them more easily.
It's not like rafters, kayakers, or any other group of river users is made up 100% of intelligent, well-meaning folks that do everything right the first and every time. This guy's reaching out to the whitewater boating community and all you want to do is give him a load of crap.
Maybe our interests and the APA's interests overlap in some critical areas.
