Dood with all respect, i refuse to play nice with people who don't take the time to read other people's posts before they jump in.

Actually most of my xfriends say i'm alot like the Turner's in that i "never play nice".

JBrochu, You say I am not very smart that only 2 people crawled up his butt. I can't believe I went back and counted how many people critisized the guy. I count 7, Dave, Flotsam, DMan, JBrochu, Go Climb, Me Climber, JakeDatc. I admit, I am not very smart but I do know how to count. Remember 7 comes after 6.

Since you are counting me as one of the people who "crawled up his butt", I'd like to clarify.  Here's my one and only post on the subject.  It starts with a joke:

Quote
Banz him!  Ban the bad trolling Keese!

(I swear, he's not me)

I thought the whole thing, suspicions and all, was entertaining.

Then I wanted to get confirmation about the event from others who were there.  When you hear reports of a sizable rockfall from one person, don't you look for confirmation?

Quote
Seriously, though - this is starting to seem pretty suspect - Dave, have you called your friends yet?  The ones who you said were climbing there on Sunday?  See what they say.

Of course, that confirmation came shortly after from the poster known as "Summit".

Then, as a closing statement, I suggested that in my experience, it seemed unlikely that Keese was making this all up.  I was open to the possibility, if someone could prove it was a lie, but I just couldn't fathom a reason for making up a lie like that:

Quote
It's hard to understand what the motivation might be to make something like this up.

GO

Anyway, the main reason for my skepticism in the first place had less to do with the poster's history, or his way of telling the story, and more to do with his reports that a huge rockfall like the one he described, passing right through the middle of four pitches of rock, all of which were occupied by climbers, caused no injuries.  Unprecedented, IME.

But hey, I'm glad it turned out that way, for him, and all the other parties involved!

Cheers!

GO
