I guess I better get on Yang's train to 15 pages on 05/30/2013 19:46:02 MDT Print View

Now that this pity thread has turned ridiculous and is almost 10 pages, I figure I need to do my part to get it to 15.

Here is the weight of a SVEA 123R fully fueled, (good for 1 hour run time), without the cute little cup/pot.Fueled weight of SVEA 123R sans pot

Hiking Malto, thanks for the offer but why would I want to take your money? New people are posting, why that made you mad? If you do not like this thread, just ignore it.

I have to say that agree with Yang or not, he has maintained a civil tone and his replies have been respectful even to those that have not shown near the class.

If you printed this thread out it would weigh more than most SUL set ups!

"Now that this pity thread has turned ridiculous and is almost 10 pages, I figure I need to do my part to get it to 15."

It's not a pity thread. Just one person who is being personally attacked for calmly and sincerely voicing a legitimate concern.

Knock it off.

"It's not a pity thread. Just one person who is being personally attacked for calmly and sincerely voicing a legitimate concern."

+1

Someone who has done what they can to receive fair treatment for a legitimate issue, and has received unfair disparaging remarks and deleted retorts from the business operator. (And lots of support from others.)

"4. Now, it came to the interesting part. Because of the defective Net Tent, I was not able to use the tent for my soon coming trip. "

"They are still brand new. But I probably need to use them this weekend."

What was the trip you were unable to use the tent for? This makes it sound like a weekender. Probably doesn't make a difference to some but not having a new tent for a weekend doesn't sound like much of a put out. Who knows, maybe it was for your PCT thru and it derailed your trip. Just curious.

When we refer to Yang, are we calling him by his family name or his personal name? Could be either. But, this is not the main issue.

As to the main issue, I'm with Yang. His story is completely plausible, and, therefore, SMD is behaving discourteously, improperly, and foolishly with respect to its own interests. Let this be the summary.

Or, we could go on for indefinitely to see whether we can set length records, first on the BPL site and then for planet earth! The stars are the limit! Game on!

You are right Bob. I apologize if I offended. This thread just got so heated and ridiculous so fast it was impossible for me to take it seriously after a very short time.

Yang Lu,
Wish I could speak for BPL membership, because if I could, I would apologize profusely to you for the nasty responses to your thread. Very sorry.

Zorg, for a while there I thought that maybe you and Scree were one and the same, but now I see that Scree has the sense to step out of the way of the landslide.

I love standing at the edge of the window listening to the echoes of some lost soul way down in the bowels of the oubliette. At least with your hooting I can gauge the depths to which some people are willing to fall.

Have they been feeding you? I do hope you get enough to eat down there. Holler if you need some light.

Yes, Yang please let us know if SMD comes through for you. You know where most of us stand on this issue.
