No worries. It's never easy to get the full gist of where someone is coming from on the interwebz.
Your post brought it out but I was referring more to the general bashing that folks who for whatever reason, be they rich, poor, hippies, yuppies, or even from Boulder, are convenient whipping boys for people to bag on. I find it best to reserve judgement till I know someone and even then, IMO judging people is a fools hang up. (not that I can't be a fool
) Usually it comes from just trying to drag someone down so a person can feel they're above another.
Now if you want to discuss the impacts of some activity
, be it plush resorts for the wealthy or campgrounds for the dirt bags, by all means, fair game, but when you don't know someone, leave the personal shit out of it.
