US Navy may be many things, but a poser he is not. He climbs, a lot, and at a higher level than most of the posters on this site. He also posts a lot of questionable advise and some completely erroneous information. He gets hammered for that, and rightly so. However, to call him a poser identifies you as either extremely biased or extremely ignorant.

Questionable climbing abilities notwithstanding, what else would you call someone who buys an expensive piece of testing equipment that he has no idea how to use, chart, or process data from, then posts results having no controls, standards, or relevance on three different forums?

Gear manufacturers and international standards committees have paid professionals to assure the safety of accepted gear and practices, and USN's barrage of threads are confusing and unneccesary. He only puts them up to try and pass himself off as some kind of "expert," then bumps them incessantly to keep them on the front page. n00bs respond because by definition they too are clueless. Seasoned climbers respond because his tests are full of holes. Engineers and experts in this sort of testing have noticeably avoided commenting, preferring to avoid the whole shit show.

Add to all that his posting history as "thenose." http://www.rockclimbing.com/...e;sb=post_time;mh=25

I call that a poser.
