Since the Texan thread is locked out, I will comment here about Texas, Texans, and whitewater.

It is true that Texas has its share of Yahoo's. Every place does.
I am a third generation Austinite, but that in itself does not make me a yahoo. I travel to Colorado as much as I can, summer, winter, whenever.
The people I have met there are very cool, and seem to all share a common passion for the outdoors. And that's why I'm there, too.

Before you go dissing Texas whitewater, though, be informed. Check out some of this video:

We need to police ourselves

I salute him. Let's keep the site.

Ed Lucero had a cool site called soulboating. Politics started to become intermingled on the site and before too long it became a forum for what appeared to be white supremacist to verbally jab liberal boaters and it got ugly. It went from something pretty cool to something very ugly very fast. The threads that have come down have been interesting. We started with some comments about 20,000 hippies coming into the Routt national forest. I think most of what was being said was in sort of an Eric Cartman like jest, and alot of it was really funny. But then, it got really ugly with very personal attacks. If Frenchy or the new owner needs to lock some people out, to keep this forum going, then I support him. I enjoy hearing about the boating and seeing the rants so many put out their. As I sit behind my desk eight hours a day, this site helps the day pass. Hopefully a few people who take pride in jumping across all boundaries won't ruin it for the rest of us.

I too support Frechy's judgement and his ability to smoothly transition the spirit of MountainBuzz to the new owner.

I too found that Frenchy had a very good handle on when to let things go and when someone had to step in. Hopefully, he will continue to advise Andy on these issues. What is wrong with the occasional off-topic rant thread (1 out of 10 or 20 isn't taking away from the boater's forum).

As far as, now that is a forum with a ton of smack and rude behavior. Kind of funny most of the time, but I think it is some of those members that are trickling into the 'buzz and taking their antics with them. I do believe the amount of OT threads and smack, is inversely proportional to the water levels. That explains the Texan Paddlers.

Censorship is BAD!!!!

Be careful this could be the end of your freedom of speech on mountainbuzz

I for one would hate to see such a great site go down the tubes.

I too agree, censorship is not a good thing. But, I do support Frenchy and Andy's right to block out turd burglers like timmay. He just wants to create a thread to piss people off. Some of the things on these threads, ie. "hippies" are freakin' hilarious and then there are people on here just to talk trash to people because the are mindless and bored. Andy, step lightly as a new owner and not rub people the wrong way right off the bat. I know you are attempting to reform a "boaters forum" but Rome wasn't built in a day and niether will the community you want here on the Buzz. I support the locking of some threads but give them a chance before you crack the whip on your own ideals. It is a community forum not a communist forum. Peace, Stevie

ps. Lick my bean bag timmay, you will never be a part of the Zissou Society!
