This is getting way off topic from the DC Sessions topic, but I'll ask here because if I move it to Site Administration it's just ignored and then eight months from now someone will claim the issue was ignored by the site administrators.

Which ones, Vlad? Name them. Every manufacturer I see listed on the forum page is selling product and providing support to racers. Just because you don't know anyone who's buying a FibreFlex or a Wefunk doesn't mean they aren't selling. Which board is no one using? What truck is no one buying? Tell me a wheel that has a forum that no one rides? Tell me which one of the products on this website can't be bought tomorrow?

More importantly, tell me what slalom-related product can be bought tomorrow from the manufacturer who's NOT got a forum?

P.S. I guess I do need to find out if Ron wants one for Fatboy. Seems Team Slacker has sort of migrated to his stable :-)

sessions?

Post by Mike Ohm » Sat Oct 08, 2005 1:28 pm

I am very concerned here. Brian, have you hung up your slalom quiver in the pursuit to go fast?

Anthony, I plan to check out Fountainhead and hopefully plan an Outlaw race. You can run a downhill on the same day!

Vlad, sorry you missed saturday's race in VT. You would have liked the course. Not tight but somewhat tech.

I'm deeply disappointed with the way this forum is run.
It's clear that someone's interests play a huge role in what gets moved where and when.
This is not the idea of a community forum.
Calm down Vlad. Is it really that important?
...and do you really think it happened and that it was intentional?

I haven't really been following this topic but every now and then I come here to see what's up, if there are any fun photos or so. I seem to recall that two weeks ago when I came here I saw plenty of empty posting that had been edited. Have a whole series of empty posts is pretty useless and I think I deleted one or two, but stopped worrying about the reason for such empty posts and moved on to somewhere else.


If there is a post that a moderator finds reasonable to delete we have an old rule that NO POSTS should be deleted. Instead Adam and I agreed to move such posts to the Thrash Can forum (only visible to admins). Only rarely do posts get moved there. If it was a misunderstanding or if there is a long debate about that post, we can bring it out again.

...but if doesn't prevent a moderator to simply edit your post. That's part of the rules here. Of course it shouldn't be misused, but for me it is reasonable to edit out the worst part of a post in a fighting situation. Good we don't have so many of those! In reality I think very few moderators really moderate the forums that hard. I would suspect you post(s) was only accidentally edited/deleted. I don't really think it was intentional by anyone.

Now back to slalom related stuff, or?

PS. Or did I misunderstand this whole argument?

Ohm, have you been by Walker lately? Is it clean? All of us Outlaws should get together and have a session some time soon, maybe at Fountainhead or the Park and Ride.

Directions, sort of. Take 95S to the 123 Occoquan Exit. Follow 123 about 3 miles to Hampton Road. Turn left on Hampton Road and go another maybe 2 miles and look for the Fountain Regional Park sign and turn left into the park. Park at the bottom of the hill, carry your gear over the gate and keep walking until you see water.

Aaron,

Here's what going on for the next couple of months:

Feb. 18: Trade Street Outlaw, Athens, Ga.
Mar. 25: The Down-Here Slalom Retreat, Hobby Park, Winston Salem, NC
(The Retreat is on the Contest Calendar on NCDSA and the Trade Street race will be this week.)

Either Mar 4 or March 11: Backwoods Blast Outlaw Race, Fountainhead, Va.

(I'm voting for March 11. The final date depends on what's convenient to everyone way Down South.)

Great day skating Fountianhead. Ohm and Boswell cleared the entire hill so it gave us a little more space for some bigger offsets and more cones in the upper part of the hill.

Beleive it or not but both Ohm and I were wanting more speed. I had to take a couple of runs on my downhill board. Its not quite as fast top speed as hobby park but I think it is a much harder hill to skate. Probably twice as long a ride. A little but of navagation is required as the hill turns right in a big sweeper near the end. Really fun.

Going to try to hit it again in the next couple of weekends.

I had a thought…after getting like much faster than I used to be…I had a thought…how about forgetting about brand loyalty and all that pussified niceness, supporting this nice dick over that mean dick…forgetting all that…and…and just using the fastest, bestest stuff on the slalom market…wouldn’t be farer that way to all the mean and nice dicks that would get the message and make their stuff better or just go away…I think THAT would make them all nice, not some friendship ties.


I pity you…if you use the same hand to masturbate as you do to click on this forum so often, I pity you…but, hey, keep clickin’…it's still better then skating 3m TS in the rain :D

How wonderfully high school it all is.

Next thing we know Vlad will start pining about who's going to ask him out to the big game?

But the blast would be like too simple of a solution for any radicals...

We should start looking for ways to get an ego boost so we have something to bring to the GX race, coz we've gots ego issues here in DC you see... keeps them out-of-towners away... that and the lack of skill.
