I just canít let this go unanswered. Athelake, Sorry for my part in distracting your post with the drama. This is my last reply to the drama and then Iím outÖof the drama at least.
Q---Lil bitch still stomping huh? ... Dude your obviously all butthurt up in there.
DBK after my comment you turned it into personal insults and name calling and you say that IíM THE ONE who is stomping around? After this last reply you say that IíM THE ONE whos acting butthurt?
Q---You grouped me with your list of known thugs,
I Assume your talking about ORTO? You make the same kind of comment that he does and he is the one laughing WITH you then who has grouped himself in with whom? And Iím the bad guy for pointing it out?
Q---you've classified me as thinking "I'm better than you"
Not just me, 90% of creek boat owners according to YOUR OWN CLASSIFICATION!
Q---you've accused me of doing drugs
Lord, I apologize for talking about DBKs drug induced rants and all the starving pygmies. DBK you have distinguished yourself with the occasional rant that myself AND OTHERS have noted seem like they may be enhanced with some recreational chemicals. Note this thread; Special Edition Wave Destroyer?
It wasnít a real accusation, it was just a tease to reflect the change in tone of your replies when they turn especially colorful as above. Iím sorry for being a meanie and I promise to try to be nicer.
Q---and admitted to being a complete idiot in the cat boating world. While ripping those with years of experience in the business.
ďComplete idiotĒ? you just proved my point. And, I assume your talking about ORTO again. You call him a ďknown thugĒ and then say that Iím ripping on him? If you have read my post to and about him youíll see that I compliment him a lot as well. So much that I get razzed for it by other folks on the river. I come down on him for his many aliases, behavior towards others, and especially toward other professionals in the industry. No expertise needed. Even ďcomplete idiotsĒ can see that. And I do that because I'm frustrated it is to see someone with his skills struggling. If he would treat people well he could be wildly successful and in turn would advance the sport. I think Iím being very reasonable toward ORTO.
Q---I think when the time passes it wont be me re-examining my position here.
Your Probably right on this one. ďIt is a very rare person indeed that considers criticism on himself. Nearly everyone seeks to justify their own behaviorĒ Ralph W. Emerson.
Q---I think you'll have a whole new perspective in 5 years with some class 5 cat boating under your belt.
Is that to say that IF I become a good boater you think I will look down on lesser boaters or some other perspective?
Q---OR not. I'll put a $20 that your cat sits in the shed after your first big screw up. Just saying..
Too late. Iíve already had my first big screw up and second and third andÖTwo years ago I screwed up so bad (20 year record high on the Lochsaw) that I had a hard time getting on it this year. Lucky for me there were some world class boaters there to help me get over it. To bad you werenít there. You could have laughed at me. Want my address to send the $20?
Look man, my comment was a general poke fun at the numerous boaters here who also like to generally poke fun at the newbs. If you read that reply youíll see that it wasnít meant AT you. This phenom is nothing new here as to any sport or group. I was surprised that it bothered you that bad and you responded back so personally so Iíve responded back as well. Ever since your comment in the link provided Iíve followed your comments. You have a special talent for the especially colorful, analogy filled, kinda Juvinile post, but you actually help a lot of folks on here with great stuff. Iíve learned from some of them myself. Iím guessing that, in real life, if you see a boater who is struggling you would probably try help or advise. There is just a special kind of communication that happens on an annamous public forum that is different from how we behave in real life. Maybe Iím wrong. Call me anthything you wish. I wonít even reply anymore. Iím out.
