Your right I did mispell it. Oops I did it again. I feel like a bigger idiot than you because I'm a bad speller. I'm so embarassed. You should be a scholar and a poet instead of a climber, you will probably find more homosexual companionship in the literary world.

Oh wait... you WERE serious. You're that guy on the cover of Climbing Mag this month. Now that we know you're mentally and physically challenged, you SHOULD be sponsored for your great achievements. No matter what anybody on here says, you really are special Gabe, just like your moms says. Don't get discouraged.

Question: how do I get recognition?
Answer: die in a noob climbing accident - you'll be on the 5 o'clock news fo-sho. All your equipment related needs will be solved at that point.

Question: Why am I such a pussy?

Answer: Because I can't climb the Abruzzi Ridge barefoot and naked like Gabe Walker

So, hey man, where can I pick up one of those ManThongs, it sounds like it would probably perform alot better than the banana hammock I've been climbing in. Does it wick? Swamp-ass is a bitch...

Dude we aren't ''hating on you'', we are just telling you the truth. That is what you asked and we told you.

Many people who have answered your question are stronger climber then you are. Try to get into climbing competition and maybe if you are in the top 10, you will get sponsered.

Really you don't ask them, they ask you if you want to be sponsered and you aren't strong enough to even ask. That is the simple truth.

As funny as GabeW is ("buttdrain?" Will I owe you royalties if I use that?), he wasn't even trying. But why waste energy or pride? Y'alls are too easy. How many of you had to run your finger along the words and mouth them while you read before falling into his branch and pine-needle covered hole in the forest floor and then lambasting him?

Come on, give me power_tie. That guy is slightly more subtle.

Congratulations on failing your first test.

If you were being considered for sponsorship, you could kiss that goodbye. Any company that was possibly looking at you to be their spokesman would look the other way when they saw how you respond to negative criticism.

I know that people are not being nice to you in this post. But truth is, you're not an amazing climber judging by your own admission of your "exploits". You should expect negative comments if you're looking to put yourself in the public arena as an icon.

Your personality isn't grade "A" either. If your had a sterling personality, then companies would consider you for sponsorship. But what would I know, I've only held several major sponsors as a surfer (including JC Hawaii, DaKine, DSO, Globe shoes, Ezekiel clothing, etc...) I don't know that much about sponsorship...

I don't know of any climbers who are sponsored for climbing in a gym, no matter how hard they're pulling on plastic. I give you credit for your zeal, but it's not according to knowledge, as it were. Take some time, grow up a little, gain some more experience and a little tact, then try again.

hosh.

True 'dat. Mr. Tie was pretty good, comparatively. But as you said, who needs to exercise skill and subtlety when you have putzes who fall for "Gabe's" pathetic level of troll crap?

It's also possible that Gabe was doing what is called "hookless trolling." That's when you make a troll intentionally bad and obvious, just to see who is clueless enough to get hooked by it anyway. That's a legitimate, but often derided, trolling technique used around here quite a lot.

As I've mentioned in previous posts, my offer stands to up-and-coming trolls everywhere. You're welcome to contact me if you would ever like any mentoring or advice.

The world needs Gabe Walkers, real or not. Reading and replying to his/ its posts is a little like giving change to someone begging on the street: deep down you know it accomplishes nothing and yet it makes you feel good because a) you humored someone less fortunate and b) you're not them.

Yes I agree it would have been better had I successfully googled a pic of a sweaty fat kid in a thong, liebacking up a crack with his bitch tit stuffed in said crack, taking a rest, chalking up one hand, adjusting his thong with the other, all with that prized winning stupid look on his face... I mean, this is the friggin internet for pete sake. If I need a pic of a sweaty fat kid in a thong, liebacking up a crack with his bitch tit stuffed in said crack, taking a rest, chalking up one hand, adjusting his thong with the other, all with that prized winning stupid look on his face, then damn it, I should be able to get my hands on that pic, some how, some way... [sigh...] The limitations of the internet severely disappoint me sometimes.
