You could hire me for the low price of $25 an hour, with a minimum 4 hour block, gas not included. Wink

I think that if you want to communicate with people in writing, you should learn how to use punctuation marks.

ive been climbing for alot of yeas and dont find many climbers that are pricks but you are a big one the kind of person that makes us all look bad good job

What does a 44-year-old man who can't write a proper English sentence make us look like?

And if I'm the prick, how come you're the one who can't find a climbing partner?

Also, you might want to review the thread for who attacked whom.

2 statements of fact in a single thread can be overwhelming.

And no one ever questioned that a gym would let a client self-belay?

I belonged to a gym that allowed self-belaying and trolls don't delete posts.

Ah, that would explain why you didn't question it.

I find that interesting. Upon reflection, I could see a gym allowing it with the automatic belay brakes, but I'm just surprised that the ever-present insurance ogre would allow it with more mainstream devices.
(Route-setters exempted, of course.)

Good job on capturing all his replies, made the thread (short as it was) entertaining.

Jay your a nasty old fker, Im glad i dont have to be around arseholes like you when i go climbing. I dunno why people here are on your dick so much, all you ever do is flex your ego and mock others.

Cant figure you out, why do you come to a ''help'' forum only to take the piss out of people?. Did you fail so hard in reaching your goals or what? or did you just not get enough attention from reaching them?, im very curius to know why your such a cock.

INfact, i think your just a 8 year old holding your breath and seing how many people rush over when you turn blue. Honistly just get a grip?.

What are you talking about? All Jay did was point out that the OP would get better responses by making a readable post. I am continually amazed how people here get their panties tied in a knot by simple statements of fact. Are y'all really so thin-skinned and incapable of self-reflection?

Well, hypothetically, one might counter that Grammar Nazis are "underappreciated" no matter how right they are. Suppose your writing isn't the greatest (ahem), and maybe you're a little sensitive about that, and you work up the 'nad juice to post a question, and then the first thing you get is a nut-busting critique. That might tend to kick off an escalating overreaction.

In the future, you might consider gritting your teeth at the horrific capitalization and punctuation, and at least give the guy credit for apparently knowing how to spell check. after all you dont got no need for well writin to climb good

Ceebo hardly ever posts anything worth quoting, but it's nice to occasionally get a reminder of why I've killfiled him.

For better or for worse, the only way we have of assessing someone on the internet is by how they write and by the quality of their ideas/questions, as they appear to us.

Grammar, spelling, and coherency all contribute to the assessment and to our reaction to the post. (And I would like to believe that most of us do make allowances for folks who are apparently not native English speakers.)
