Hello, good evening.
I am, after being a member for several years, now leaving this site.
The reason? It makes me sick, seeing how big, not to say major, parts of our skiing scene and its audience is represented by a bunch of immature morons sitting in front of their computer screens giving people shit for how they look, how they ski, what they wear, what music they listen to, where they live and so on.
It seems like a kid cant even post a legit question on here without being made fun of, or harassed by being called a noob, loser, gay, the list goes on for quite a while.
Its almost scary to see how low the average NSers intelligence seems to be. This used to be a ski community where you could ask questions, discuss different topics without ending up in verbal fights arguing over who sucks the most, and post pictures and videos of your progression without getting 20 comments on how u suck, and how u should quit skiing, and how your pants are too tight, etc.
It's just sad, what this place has become. And to all sane and mature members, thanks for a good time, I've been greatly entertained by numerous forum threads, some that have left me and my friends laughing for days. (constipation thread, robe and wizardhat, etc.)
So, this is my curtain call. Hope to see you all out there on the mountain, doing what we love the most. Skiing, and sharing our knowledge and skills.
