I think we have witnessed the birth of a new disease:
"Fokiten Derangement Syndrome"
Relax, it's in remission, fo's term is over,
change will come
then again, the more things change,,,, :wink:

I KNOW it's a dangerous sport, we all do. I don't care for some kook writing 3000+ words explaining how/why/when you should wear a helmet, an impact vest, and carry emergency flares in a sport that involves hanging from a KITE at 20+ knots wind on a surfboard (getting "big air",etc)

the same way i don't need toby banning Fo to "protect me" from his attitude (even if I actually found it offending)

lame, lame, that's the best word to describe it.

I find it very interesting that Fo got banned but if you go to the facebook group 'say no to kiteforum' and take a browse through the members profiles you will find a number of people that belong to to it and who post and advertise on kiteforum like Shannon Best. I would think that this would be the biggest form of disrespect as it is directed completely at the efforts of you Toby and your website overall


Toby, still haven't seen a response to this however I have noticed that Best is still getting ad space after such a blatent show of disrespect. Curious as to how one is justified over the other. Perhaps the letters are in the mail....


C'mon Toby, humor me here and let me know what the difference in disrespect is. What's the exact dollar amount??

Money talks Best is gonna stay on here, its a buisness profits are everything
take the cheque so best can sell some more kites, why not?
Toby and Rickl can't comeback to this tread cause every time no matter what they say they are gonna get cut up. Getting rid of Fo took care of the abusive language but got every one else going after them. Now they just have to live with it, or Toby will have to bann anyone with half a brain and that, frankly would not be to good for the ratings, but might get rid of Best.
I guess we all have to live with it.

Agreed, just tough to sit back and watch hypocrisy at its finest.

A little reality check from time to time.

That is a good point. I still think it is a slippery slope when you ban independent thinkers even if their message delivery is controversial. It will be a slow and almost comfortable slide into white bread, bland boredom.


A example supporting my point. "Signs signs, everywhere there are signs..."

Not much happening nowadays on kiteforum ?
