So I went and checked out rockclimbing.com's forums expecting to find some good information. After spending about 10 minutes on there, I found more crap than information. People were crass, vulgar, very sarcastic and rude to noobies, etc. I'm not opposed to sarcasm or some locker-room innuendos every once in a while, but when a new person gets on and asks a question about ropes and all they get are comments like "I can tell from your name that you like to 69", or people making fun of them for not knowing about ropes... well you get the idea.
It just makes me glad I'm a part of a community that provides intelligent information. When I'm in the mood for the other stuff, I'll go to a bar and make fun of people.
