@Faceplant I'm gonna have to ask you to back off on this thread. You've made your opinion clear that you don't think they've thought this through. No need to keep beating a dead horse; also, you're really playing armchair survivalist here, please stick to making posts about things you know instead of just tearing down other people's ideas.

@backpacker420 please upload a profile picture and fill out your profile details if you want to keep making posts here in the message board.
i'll just go elsewhere, thought this was a decent community but this faceplant guy proved otherwise.

why does one person's opinon have to be a reflection on the entire community? why don't you try growing some thicker skin and acting like an adult?
i'm acting like an adult, i've been nothing but nice since i been here, shared over 200 books worth of knowledge. just to be disrespected for no reason. has nothing to do with having thick skin. i'm just sick of having to deal with these kind of people that get a bug up their ass for no reason and take it out on others

so you're going to hold an entire community of people responsible for one person's comments? sounds very mature.

you know there's an ignore function here, right?

i understand you weren't trying to be a prick as i hope you understand i wasn't trying to be in my reply to you.
No offense taken, I just wanted others who may have been interested to have a little more info since yer original post didn't go into very many details.

I agree with op's sentiment. Straight up mocking someone's thread without a detailed explanation should just be removed - the poster given a warning in private. (This isn't the same as disagreeing in a detailed argued manner, which is always useful criticism.)

Bad management does reflect on this community.

I've spent seasons outdoors, partially bushcrafting. By far the worst enemy is boredom, so I can sympathize with op looking for easy companionship. I'd be tempted to say, "Have you tried doing this for a week, before you do a whole season?" But in reality I like to jump into things too, and it's really not that complicated. And having a quick exit-strategy is simple, too. :)

(Edited for clarification and context.)

I have to wonder why the admin allows trashy comments in here. Straight up mocking someone's thread without a detailed explanation should just be removed - the poster given a warning in private.

Thank you for yer opinion on what should and should not be allowed on stp. Perhaps next time you could send someone a message in private as to not post off topic things. At least @Faceplant had a opinion, you just kinda wanted to tell people to not voice theirs and added dick all to the thread. A 2 minute skim of yer post history is pretty reveling and makes me think that the time I've used typing this reply to you could of been better used catching my own farts in jars. If you had a legitimate complaint we would love to hear it, the user who's comment wasn't well received was publicly warned, and then stopped. What more could you possibly ask for?

I'm terribly sorry you feel that way about how "management" reflects on this community.

Phuen, I will leave this thread alone - but I feel that StP is a big enough, and open - minded enough place that dissenting opinions can and should have a voice. We shouldn’t only tolerate people who agree with our own point of view, should we?

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$55.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $55.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $55.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $55.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
