Full Tilt- You are looking at this the wrong way. A few thoughts: Have you ever been to Golden at 9 am on a Tuesday, or even Saturday? I garantee no one will be rude or disrespect the etiquettes because no one is there. Do you head down there at 5 after work with everyone else including the tubers, swimmers, spectators, boogie boarders, gate chasers, canoe-ers, pros, and pro hoes to hit the one decent feature? Yeah, there is some stress. Have you ever skied on a Wed. vs. a Saturday? The boating community is WAY bigger than the users of this site. Haven't you ever noticed you see the same names appear in common themes? My neighbor is a kayaker and she uses this site only for flows. My roomate is a kayaker and uses this site rarely for flows, and a little porn fixation. I know good kayakers you see on a regular basis who have never posted here. If want to judge the community by Golden, and a few threads, then I feel sorry for you man. That is an unfair censes...Your sample population does not represent the community.
Now if you were to claim that due to the rapid growth in a male dominant sport, territorial competition is spreading due to the lack of females....we must recruit or we will suffer a sasage party riot by year 2007 resulting in a confusing mass suicide, I might have agreed with you.
