All whine could be moved here.
BPL, PIF , unfairness in general.

Kat: Thanks for idea of putting all the whining in one place. My input:

I'm still getting my head around what my preferred kit would be, so I don't feel like I can jump on these generous PIF offers.

It was -16F this morning, so I didn't get outside for a hike.

I'm 1,448 miles from good Thai food.

I'm torn between documenting a comparison of painted and unpainted pots on a variety of stoves or just getting jpgs of ignited flaming methane clouds to post on the site.

Life's a b!+(#.

Oh, wait, no it's not. I've got my health, a healthy family, free time, and some extra money.

Maybe I should let "the 99%" of the world's population complain.

Some people are just generally a holes. I don't like it, but it's true.

PIF-Free Marmot Helium on 01/02/2012 14:08:12 MST Print View

So what's with all of the PIF's lately that say "for members only"? So to former members or non members who understand the whole Idea of PIF, your just SOL? Kind of totally blows the whole idea of PIF, right?
Anyway, I have a new Marmot Helium long, free, to the first MEMBER to guess the name of my cat. Members only. Offer ends exactly one minute after this is posted. Only valid in the U.S. of A.
Sorry for the rant.

If my PIF had not been claimed, I would almost change it to:
PIF to members or.... non members who would not even dream of whining about not getting the exact same benefits as members.

Wonder which members have a financial interest in this forum (have invested in the past)? They should really make themselves known especially if they are taking part in PIF to members only and not naming those who are allegedly receiving the gear.

Paying It Forward. Where someone gives something away and they get to choose how that happens.

I still can't figure out how to get the two little dots above the 'u' in uberlight! I want to at least spell it right if I won't be able to acheive that status, it just sounds uber-cool to say.

ALT 0228   =  ä
ALT 0246   =  ö
ALT 0252   =  ü
ALT 0196   =  Ä
ALT 0214   =  Ö
ALT 0220   =  Ü


On an iPod touch or iPhone, just keep the vowel pressed and all options will appear right above it.

Wait, wait, wait... You mean to tell me that you want to give something away--for free--AND you want to CHOOSE how you're going to give that something away, generously for free?

C'mon, Kat, that's just being elitist. ;)

Thanks, Kat. With so many acronyms floating around these days, I guess I just lost this one in the clutter. I should have figured it out from the context. I'm a little embarrassed.
