 Morning Dew ,self portrait
I call a guy a gumby in a post the other day and the post was removed completely. WTF? Seems MP no longer allows one to have an opinion which isn't presented as though you were addressing a kindergarten class.

So see ya later. If I wanted to be told how to express myself I would join a cult. How is calling someone a gumby being somewhere beyond a jerk? Removed completely! As though I never posted. Got better things to do. Mods, please remove all history of me ever being here, including all of the route info and other contributions I have offered. Bunch of Gumbies!

Gonna miss some of you, just not enough to deal with the playground mentality of the mods. Gone for Good, s.price

After a while, I don't think they let you delete your own route entries. I'd say to go in and edit everything blank if that's how you feel. Colonel Mustard

I wouldn't presume that, people edit their route descriptions all the time. At that point, it would probably be better for them to let his descriptions go even if they are able to fix the matrix. In CO, I'm sure there are plenty who would step up and replace them with their own.

Ownership of info is an interesting subject, and they are certainly his words and beta to tinker with as much as he wants for as long as he is able.

I'm not going to say the farewell note or proposed actions aren't dramatic. But, hell, that's why we lurk the forum, isn't it?

Well, she got old and not quite as smokin' and then got a divorce, statistically speaking.

It becomes a question, too, of whether removing the "content" affects the content other users have provided (eg comments, additional photos, etc); the question ends up being something like: at what point does one user's content, once submitted into the community and augmented by the community, cease to be that user's content and begin being community content? Certainly this is an intellectual exercise and has no tangible meaning, but whatever...


I agree, it's convoluted. I've seen a few different sides of that coin here. Maybe it'll get even more interesting once they start charging for their apps and we're earning them $ beyond ad revenue.


We'll just have see if he fucks with it and tests the system ;). ANARCHY!!!!

No presumption is necessary. It is a fact, and it has and can be done.

Just so we all are informed, any changes to a narrative in the route database show up on our Admin tool bar. Admins look over the change (compare or contrast) and 99% of the time approve it. When it is simply an act to screw with the site, we click the button to keep the original.

Killer I think even ellenor has found better things to do than troll mp.com. Heck I have quit using the forums all that much as well. Quit everyone crying about the mods and go join /b. they even have a portion on climbing and it is all calling each other gumbies and posting bouldering videos in the gym.

Good luck.
