A Plea to Raphael and The111

Postby SLF » Fri May 07, 2010 7:03 pm

Please guys, I am begging you, kite more and post less.

I have really enjoyed kiteforum for years (almost 8) and I have to say, you two may be the most irritating particpants I have ever encountered. I am at my wit's end, and almost can't bring myself to log on anymore. Just seeing your posts breaks my heart, even if I choose not to open them.

I can only speak for myself, but your relentlessly silly and ill-informed (and in Raphael's case, blatantly gear-pimping) posts are ruining the forum.

It's not about being a beginner. Beginners with legitimate, non-commercial questions about the sport are welcome. But what you guys are doing is beyond the pale.

I am begging you, please take the hint and stop posting.

Best,

SLF

SLF, since you have only 2 posts, you can still ignore this forum with ease further on.
and don't forget about "Esc" button either...

didn't you heard about freedom of expressions???

:lol: I haven't been keeping up with the board lately to know if you are correct, but, it sounds like someone who has contributed nothing to the forum, only lurks and leaches, is complaining about someone for contributing too much! :D

(again, you may be right about the two of them, I just find it funny that a 2 post user is complaining about anyone...)

I have never asked a non-legitimate or commercial question. What are you talking about?

I wonder too! Looks like SLF had a bad day! Did you loose your board? Or did you arrive and the wind died, and everyone told you they had the best session ever?

:bye:

SLF your not alone with your feelings just look at the daily postings on this forum... way down... I used to look at this forum on a daily basis but now its a pimping site and I log on once in a while and it seems many other kiteboarders have moved on too.

Anyway it seems that this whole internet forum craze has moved to Face Book and other systems where people can build their own tribes in relative safety from the flamers and pimps.

Forums like this are quickly becoming obsolete.

I agree with Slf ,some guys yust want to hear themselves do not listen do not think do not know what talking about.
Since this site is for kiters sharing experience we do not want to be a mirror for someone else ego.
as they say risk is site become obsolete.
