Okay, When the newschoolers site was just starting up, it was an undiscovered haven for misunderstood 'newschoolers', if you will, to express their feelings to each other over the interweb. At first, the sites atmosphere was that of a 3rd grade slumber party. No one judged any one else, they were just glad that they had found refuge amongst their likes. As the site has progressed and the number of members has increased, that same old stoke that was once around has been lost, maybe even for ever. Today its kids just bitching about who the best skier is, what the best companies are, and how many posts you have. Have we lost the appreciation for what we all have in common? For the most part, the answer is yes. Its no longer your skiing that can establish your cred, its the number of your posts. People must think that if your posts are in the thousands, your a total badass. And if your posts are in the tens of thousands, your are a god. Maybe this means you have a lot to say, but what are your really trying to tell us? That joeshmo48 is a newb? My main example that shows how the brotherhood between fellow hucksters has been lost is the number of non-skiing posts. This is a ski site for christ sakes, if you want to go and bitch about your meaningless lives, go talk to big All at www.gayanal.com/forum/bigall. This site was designed to be a safe-haven for all of us misunderstood helians. If we want our sport to stay true and not sell out and become a mainsteam, corporate ruled, cash crop, we need to unite. No more of this, johhnytsunami234 is a total noob, let his post number speek for him. Keep it real. And thas my shpeal. So remeber, United we stand, Divided we fall.
Give my regards to your mother
