Last post on ST (under his avatar 'slabbo') from yesterday in the thread "Pumping Sandstone"

"I remeber some of the pumping Granite stuff quite well Morrocan Roll was the first boulder I did that had that "this would kinda suck to fall off" vibe.

 The sandstone stuff is only 45 minutes from me now,,some crazy memories seeing the original article as a noob many years ago. "

He's posting off/on there over the last few weeks, no mention of recent issues (but he's Strand, so...)

If you guys keep stalking Standman, he's gonna go TACO on your asses!

Have a quiche, now, or maybe a tort.  You deserve it!

Whether it's an organic lifecycle thing inherent to all fora or a meta- thing given exponential growth of connectivity alternatives, but all the climbing sites seem to be showing a decaying orbit...

true this

they need someone who has a lot to say, for better or worse, to keep them going.

plus the social media sites have taken over.
