Postby Djizasse » Tue Feb 03, 2004 4:58 pm

I'm tired of seing PMU enter every thread regarding foils and copy/paste the same paragraphs over and over again. This is called spam and the action against spammers should be just one: BAN

In the end of every Forum page is:
Do not advertise, spam or post anything not related to kiting.
Respect each individual and their opinions.
He's advertising against foils.
He's spamming.
He's not respecting each individual and their opinions.

This forum used to be much nicer...

every yr LEI say foils are dead. People still ride them (open cell and closed). I think because of the adaptability of foils (buggy/snow/mtnboard/water etc.....) they will allways be around, LEIs well......there a one trick pony.

Nothing wrong with this forum... if you wanna see a forum with heapsa flamin then the New Zealand version of this forum http://www.kiteforum.co.nz is the place to go... the guys on this forum (including the likes of PMU etc) are much more mature then what goes on there.

This forum is definately NOT goin to the dogs.

Advertising ???

You obviously have not been reading the Best Kites posts !
Unbelievable amount of FREE advertising !!

I have not seen a foil for a long time !
Do people still really use them ?

I don't know why,when a LEI is such a beautiful , perfect, thing !

They look great just sitting on the beach! But when they are in the air--Wow!

Funny how that works, when conditions are too light, I'll take out the Mastair16 and surf, cruise more or less alone, so that would explain why people at least around here don't see the foil very offten, they stay home while I'm getting an extra session.

Foils vs. lei or best advertising are 2 of the reasons that are making me go to other websites.
When i joined it was interesting and helpfull i learned a lot here. a lot more valid information. that i managed to confirm in real life.
Now is just BS and advertisement.

When i joined this was full of people that actually knew something about aerodinamic and that i learned something. Now is just some people or advertising or giving missinformation.

The level is now a lot worse.

Toby is a great guy. And tryes to run this the best way.
but now kiteforum has reached a level that is not informative anymore. it's now jsut advertising and BS.

As i said already. i'm off to other forums seeking knoledge.
Since only a few of those good guys are still posting. I think some of them left because of this and are now in oher forums also.

taabsr, a lot of the problem is perspective...

when you are new you are wide eyed and willing to accept learning, as your knowledge level goes up, people seem less knowledgable. eventually you get to the point when your kitesurfing soul trancends marketing bullshit advertisments and biased rhetoric and mislead opinions.

you have merely transcended to a higher level.

that said, newbies seem to ask much less pertinent questions than we did all those years ago....

it's a sign of a developed maket...

PMZ is the best marketing for the foils, sicne everytime the advantages of the foils over the LEI are stated.
So both types are in the mouth.

Foils are not dead at all, but I assume more snowkiters will use foils in the future.

And their handling is very easy, just watch the FS indoor video....

And if you don't let others ride what they want and want to tell them what to ride because it is the best for them, than you have a problem with yourself. Think about it.

Ha Ha :lol: :lol:

Stop crying and don't waste your time on other Forums !

They are full of bullshit and flamers,or heavilly censored ,so that only a few puritanical self righteous posters remain.

Check the Yahoo forum for an example,they get ,like,two posts per day !

This is by far THE best forum (although lately it has seemed more like the Best Kite forum! )

There is a great community feeling here.
A little bit of disagreement,a bit of shit stiring,a lot of comradeship.
Mostly a lot of Info (can't wait for the new Kitebeach site !)
Mostly thanks to Toby the Captain.

if anyone really does not like whats here,well,off you go then ! We won't miss you !But we would prefer you stay.
off to the beach now !Fuck sitting here reading all this crap :thumb:
