    Go ahead! Question the rules! But if you were to question the rules in society, wouldn't you do it in a more constructive manner than such has been done on here?
    When was I not constructive? Haven't i debated and laid out what i thought in a constructive manner.. I will attack back when i feel like I'm being laid into... But as afore mentioned by AZ moderator - it's OK to hit back..

    I always question rules when they don't make sense or are interpreted badly... i question the skier responsibility code.. I think it's crap...

    It's what we Americans do... It's why we are our own country...

Do you follow the rules at your place of employment? Do you wear shirts and shoes in restaurants?

    To discredit someone else's feelings because they're not in line with your own flippant views on forums is disrespectful.
    Where was there a thread on this and where was it hashed out to begin with?

    Regarding your questions, yes, yes, and yes. However, I don't call the cops every time someone speeds past me on the highway, or run to my boss every time a co-worker breaks the rules, or ask to speak with the restaurant manager if I see someone without shoes on. However, some people do. I consider them cry babies and I think there are some of them on this site. I am not against rules, I simply think some people need to take a deep breath and not take everything so seriously. Life is too short.

    My response was in general, not related to only you. However, I would like to think we've come a little further than 1776 as far as methods go...

    Check one of the multitudes of threads that came about when GSS was banned... I'm pretty sure it came up in there with the whole community -vs- anonymity thing.

    I think some people need to take a deep breath and consider the impact of the words they choose. Written word is an imperfect medium open to multiple interpretations and in no-way all-encompassing of the feelings intended to be conveyed. We're not all the same and we don't all approach this board from the same mentality. Telling someone, "You're too sensitive! Grow a thicker skin!" won't accomplish anything; there's nothing wrong with expecting a certain level of civility in a community.

    Some would say it's gotten worse... But I believe in the process and questioning rules is ok.. Unless you live in Iran.. Then - not so good...

    Sorry if I overmoderated you. I don't remember the incident you're referring to, but I'm sure I was right.
