Yosememite,

There is always more than one way to skin a cat per say. Say something, disagree with someone, no big. Name calling will get you no where on this forum ANYWHERE! Not just here.

As I have noted before, I am probably the lowest deleter of threads, posts etc on RV.net So if you happen to get my attention. You deserve it! I have no problems with people debating, as long as it is kept polite. If someone is not being polite, adult like, then expect to be deleted in posts, threads, or even need to get your posts approved by a mod before they are posted, last is deleting your account. If you are causing "ME" that many issues, I skip the approval of posts, just plain ask to have you deleted!

Also, in real life, have some respect for real snowflakes, they can kill you in the form of an avalanche. having been knocked down by a mini one at Stevens Pass ski area on the 7th Heaven run, I would not want to be in a real one! I've seen the damage a real one can inflict too!

Similar to those who can't handle anything negative about their favorite thing or anyone noting a real life obstacle their favorite thing has to overcome?

To me that is worse than ignorance because ignorance means that you have the intelligence to know something, but you just do not know it yet. This is knowing something, but refusing to believe it because it is not what you want to hear or want to believe. That is far more dangerous than ignorance because it is wanting your beliefs to change the facts rather than the facts changing your beliefs. With ignorance, most will at least change their beliefs when they learn the facts.

In my experience, these type of people generally resort to name calling because their back is against the wall since their opinions and beliefs have been debunked or challenged in a logical debate so their only option left is to start name calling and insulting everyone. It is more of a defensive reaction than an offensive one.

But can be pretty offensive.
In grade school I was told that each "snowflake" was unique. I do not know how it became a insult to anybody that disagrees with me. And I do not understand why anybody should feel threatened when asked to explain their opinions.

Snowflake is a fairly new derogatory timed with new members posting here

Most any word can be used as a derogatory. Ignorance is a good example. Means not knowing but usage these days as meaning dumb or stupid

As Shiner says...usually employed when their up against the wall and resort to derogatory's, AKA name calling

Marty is cool...even though he's shut down a few if my posts. [emoticon]

"Stevens Pass ski area on the 7th Heaven run"

My girlfriend at the time in the late 70's thought I could take Red Chair "The Bowl" on the way up to 7th Heaven. After two moguls I walked down! You are a BEAST!

Cummins, having taught skiing locally since 80-81, having highest certification, training director, level one examiner, I can pretty well ski anything. Sltho being a couple of years shy of 60, I don't always head for those diamond, double diamond, off listed out of area runs at Stevens, Alpental where I learned as a teenager in mid 70s. Taught there for 11 years, summit for 27. Towed my TT for 12 seasons weekly with spouse kids, staying up there from Friday to Sunday.
Good life. That was worst snow slide I was in.the worst I have seen results of, was one that came from top of My Snoqualmie stopping 20' or so from maintenance building at Alpental. Rumour had it, 20 log trucks of logs were hauled off.

Hi Marty,

Thank you for your personal post.

Indeed, I think an apology to the snowflakes I offended is way overdue. And If I may add, I don't easily get offended by name-calling. You can call me fanboy or Cybertruck nuts anytime or every kitchen sink name that comes to your mind. I came from corporate world and I did not rose to the ranks by melting on every brickbat that comes my way. Out there it's eat them for lunch or be their lunch.

Not making this as an excuse, but I must have taken too seriously to heart my dad's words -- he was a physics and math professor -- for us his kids: Don't let lies and stupidity go unchallenged.

And don't think I harbor ill feelings when you don't see me around here. I know, as you said, you don't miss me anyway. It may be just I'm too busy and getting full time lately as Chief Investment Officer for my Poors & Broke with Trump's crazy tariffs.

I won't also mind if you delete my OP Tesla Cybertruck topics. I got auto-subscribed to Owners Forum and there is enough crazy fun out there insulting each other about our foolish purchase and our pugly Cybertruck.

I may visit from time to time if you don't mind and if I'm still not banned. As I said, I bought my RV from CW and upgraded it after 2 years, as if I've not learned my lessons, also from CW. And like a true sheeple, bought everything that Good Sam after-market services they offered. I even wonder why I don't have a Titanium Good Sam logo in my forum handle. I asked help from Ella here if I'm going nowhere at CW/GS, criticize or compliment a good service I got and search of help topics here for anything relevant to my issues.

And lastly, it's none of my business if you have a Ram and don't really care if you bought it as a cover up fo your tender manhood -- or you want to send your mechanics son to college with your dedicated weekly repair jobs.

Thank again Marty -- and everyone, some of you are a big help, inspiration but everyone is a good source of fun.

No, I'm not saying goodbye (yet -- unless I'm banned).

Yosemite Sam
Say your prayers wabbit!

PS - Marty, the "you" here is not you specifically but a collective you of all forum members. Thanks, have fun and be fun -- life is short.
