"it's all about me" - cant stay with commitment I made with my partner, _I_ must reply to a very important text. There are seriously weird dynamics and mechanisms in our society these days because of social media.

Your attention please! The court of public opinion is now in session. Erik is now presumed guilty until proven innocent. Everybody gather round and pronounce judgement on Erik and make Zach feel like a good person.

IMHO, if you had a problem with his belaying, you should have said something to his face at the time. It did not have to be a big deal; you could have calmly communicated your concerns and moved on. Instead, you waited till you got home and sent out an angry e-mail filled with things you obviously did not feel comfortable saying to his face. Everything you have posted about this incident says just as much about your character as it does about his.

You probably just made him interrupt another belay to respond to your message.

It looks like you missed both the original context (where this community more or less demanded to know the name) AND the part where Erik admitted himself that he was guilty. Calling his guilt a presumption is a long fetch to make, don't you think?

In any case, I appreciate the warning. Not so much so that I don't accidentally climb with a serial texter, but moreso that the serial texter might have had their mistake firmly impressed upon them. Consequence usually does not motivate careless people to be more careful, but proving the accuser wrong does. And it has the same effect of correcting the behavior.

So this cost Zack a little social capital? OK, but it was worth it. I'd have outed the bad belayer as well.

The belay device. Zach was pulling the rope through the bend in the belay device with no feed.

Give it a shot at home. :O)

I feel that even if I was sexting with a bevvy of hot babes, I would still feel a leader trying to reef slack through a device on my crotch.

of course, if he ignored that it's even funnier.
