I tend to agree with macdemarcosteeth abut the overall attitude on this board, particularly toward new members. It seems if you aren't part of the circle of friends then you will have a bad time. I remember trying to participate in a discussion and was railroaded into submission. This board seems like it wants to represent the essence of sasquatch but I find it to be the opposite. I would hate camping next to such a judgmental and condescending group (not all of you, I know). A large part of sasquatch for me is meeting open minded people and making lifetime friendships.
I know I'll probably get flamed or nailed to the cross over this but come on guys. What's the point of having an open registration on this forum if you're just planning on attacking every new member? Unless that's part of your entertainment?
I concur, and I think it's a large reason why the board has become so slow. Once we started hanging out a bunch of the regulars stopped posting as much, but the antagonism against new people was kept up so it's been fairly hard for new blood to flow. I've personally never been a huge fan of the roasting of newbs but I know that a lot of people feel it's necessary. I just don't know if it's so necessary when they're really the only people around. (Also yeah,I know I'm not one to talk as I've posted all of three times since last 'squatch but whatever, just my two american pennies.)
