"Not sure why you can't go to Chaff AND to the G-Spot and feel interested and entertained. Nothing prevents you from participating in both backpacking-related and unrelated discussions. I don't think that shifting between forums is a great burden, is it?"
Most people who visit the BPL forums will go to the G spot first and foremost. For me it is the only bookmarked link I have at BPL, and I infrequently find time to visit most other forums, especially as the current forum set-up doesn't allow me to quickly view which forums of interest have new and relevant threads.
Anyway, in response to Roger, I can just see my new thread now...right up there in the G spot next to photos of the newset tent pitched in some breathtaking setting, there will be Allison with her photos wearing the newest 150gsm merino thong in a nice outdoor setting...or perhaps a g-string made out of cuben, or the leftover crotch I cut out of my DriDucks.......the possibilities are limitless, humurous if you're not a prude, and totally relevant ot UL gear. Gotta be careful what you write around here though-if other members don't complain you may still get busted by the robo-cop. So far it hasn't allowed me to post the words "wet-back" (in reference tou our water-heating system) without the hyphen, or P.O.O.P. without the stops. profanity apparently :( Imagine trying to post a review of the book "How Do Bears *excrete* in the Woods"!
