Yes, mocking an accident is especially scummy. You gotta ignore the non-contributor pricks though, they'll just come crawling pathetically back when they get banned anyway. Whoever recovered it should definitely give the gear back to these good samaritans.
Yes, yes I know. But, I suppose I'm somewhat of a troll myself in that it gives me pleasure to spew mouth diarrhea to such a worthy recipient. Helps keep my vulgabulary honed as well.
Thanks for all of the support guys. Your kind wishes and willingness pass on some gear are really appreciated. It's awesome to see that for every one jerk there are ten awesome people that have your back with out even knowing you. I hope we can drink a beer sometime on me.

Definitely if the gear isn't returned I'd be willing to replace it given the circumstances - I'm glad there are climbers out there who pitch in to help in an emergency, even if that means leaving gear to do so. Afterall, any of us could find ourselves in the unfortunate circumstances of a climbing accident.
