This amounts to harassment pure and simple. Most of us, besides about five of you, have really had enough. You do not speak for the community but out of boredom or the need to prove that your ongoing badgering is justified. It isn't. Congratulations for starting yet another flame in your search for that elusive support.

Remember on Forest Gump when he is running across the US and he has all those followers then all of a sudden he stops and everyone stops and one guys says "Quiet I think he is gonna say something" and all he says is "I think Im gonna go home now". I cant help but read this thread and think of Forest. People have a right to what they were sold and if its not what they ordered someone should talk to them and make it right. You go to a restraunt order a burger frys and coke you never get the frys you tell the waitress she tells you the owner will contact you, he doesnt and you dont get the frys, you call the owner repeatedly he finally sends you a message that does not address why you didnt get the frys says he meant to ignore you makes a sales pitch for something else, invites you to come over for onion rings but you will have to pay for them of course. To me that restraunt owner has no integrity at all. Me I look for another place to eat, unfortunatly its the only place around, the owner knows this so he does what he pleases and what works for him. You get the crowd who says come on get a life give it up it was only frys get over it. The other day my grand daughter and I went to Mc Donalds the frys were crap and me I would have just ate them her she went up to the counter and got new frys... Damn proud of that kid. BTW I didnt start drinking again this is how I think. If anyone gets a answer why they didnt get their frys tell RJ that I no longer need the reveiw on the lightheart solo that he said he would provide as I bought one already. So how is this new trail groove restraunt er I mean magazine anyway

Forrest Gump is funny. From what Ive read Ken is right. Everyone makes mistakes doing our best to correct them does tons for our credibility, doing nothing does also

Just got back from a 36 mile three day trip over three passes in 3 days of 11,000 feet and more.....also drove home after descending 6,000 feet hiking 14 miles and then driving 10 hours home which included Hwy 395 being shutdown between Big Pine and Bishop for an hour because of lightening strike fires.......ohhhh wait what does this have to do with this post?

I posted earlier before I left stating that I felt it was unfare to post stuff that was on MLIFE and place it here....After a lot of thinking about it... albeit at 10,000 feet the whole time (wink!), I came to the conclusion that I still feel that the initial post is somewhat wrong. And here is why:

The post originally was posted in the MLIFE section. The questions was asked regarding MLIFE. I feel this should have stayed there. Just my opinion. Why????? It had nothing to do with the members that pay the yearly fee or those that are here for free. Please note that I am not being a snob. Far from it. My MLIFE was GIFTED to me and I think we all have stuff to please don't attack me as that would be quite and foolish :)

By posting this on the regular forums, just seems to me that Ryan is being called out or is there a different motive going on.... I am not sure. Obviously this subject is divisive and I had in past posts on MLIFE stated that. Sure we are. I have been a member since the inception of BPL and to be honest, these kind of threads make me step back and wonder what the hey is going on. Dissapointed......Quite a bit actually.

What did the first part of my post mean.....take a friggen hike. This is not the end of the world. There is a whole world out there to enjoy. Go hike, play baseball, listen to punk rock. Just be! This just makes me more disillusioned

edited because I have had an hours sleep and I am trying to stay awake

For y'all complaining about personal info... All the personal stuff was out there already.

Ryan seems to be happy stringing everybody along.

If Ryan is back it's because he wants something... Oh yes, that's right, I just saw his advertisments plastered all over the page.

I would rather have and advertisment than have all MLifers go away, as he stated may just happen in a past update.

The problem with any forum like this reminds me of trail running.
If you love to run and have a passion about it and then become a race director. You then have so many races and have so little time that you no longer have time to enjoy running.
