Instead of asking for a crew change, he needs to be out there asking for spare change! Talk about empty pockets and an empty brain, oh, I already had my share...

Whats this crew change? I read the rules and I must have missed it. Just curious what someone new and doesn't apparently have standing would DM the Admin requesting? I mean I'm bed and have no standing and all u asked was to not get banned day one, compliment the folks who putû this together and offer a beer. I was reluctant requesting those things from the Powers that be. Thanks in advance for answering since a noob most likely missed it. Cheers

It's like which train heading where stops when. I think they try to keep it from getting spread too much because it being something you can just search for easily might result in more stringent security or something. I dunno though I don't fuck with trains, they're too loud.

More like where trains stop and where to wait for them. So imagine if you went to wait for your train and a cop was waiting there for you because he has a copy of the crew change.

I just want to protest this nonsense of banning a newbie over a private message!
Buuuu

Anarchists, why don't you practice some anarchism and lay off some of your strict rules??

You should actually try looking up the definition of anarchism sometime.
This disagreement between us goes back to pretty much the day I joined this community. We already agreed to disagree, and I'm using the platform to protest. I don't think we need to go through this again.

Fuck that ccg bullshit anyway.

If your disagreement is that you think anarchy as a philosophy means "no rules and everybody just does what they want", that's ridiculous, and if you have your own idea of anarchy meaning that then I don't get why you'd expect everybody with a proper understanding of the philosophy to follow your specific definition.

Not sure what you're trying to accomplish with that.




Do you mean fuck our rules for it, or fuck the need for it?
I mean fuck banning people from the community for this minor "felony". There are so many tools that as a moderator you can use other than death sentence to a new member of the community.

Fuck ccg cause punks in America are so filled with themselves and are basically not different than the government that think that information should be kept a secret. I oppose to this whole concept of keeping something as valuable hidden and secretive. It's exactly the argument that govermants use to keep information from their citizens. I get it, you're afraid that the "glitches" will get fixed by the authorities. No need to explain me the idea, I get it perfectly, I just disagree, and I use this platform (which is, thanks to you, a free speech platform. I realize that as well) to state my opinion.

I don't care about this document, just like I don't need to read hitchwiki if I wanna hitchhike or anything for that matter. Back in the day people did the exact same shit we do now, without all this data spread out.

And I'm definitely not an anarchist myself. If anything, I'm a socialist, I believe in high taxes (Scandinavian model government)

Anyway, this is not about me (or you, or anyone), I'm happy to oppose the mainstream agenda and more than happy to get these stupid emojis for my messages :)

Be safe.

The difference is that hitchhiking is legal (most of the time) and train hopping is most definitely 100% illegal. In addition there are people out there that would love to see train hopping end for good, whereas no one really gives a shit about hitchhikers.

Our rules are here to protect a culture, and you agreed to abide by those rules when registering an account. If you disagree, then put your money where your mouth is and delete your account.

You're under the wrong impression about the CCG. The point isn't to keep it secret and in the hands of an elite few. Just about anybody who has a copy will generally be happy to share it with anybody that acts competent at all. It's that
A: Traindoc, the guy who actually puts the work into making it, doesn't want it distributed online
B: If it's freely available online, the cops have it too, and they know right where to go to arrest you

Once again I stirred the pot and this time had zero intention of being antagonistic. That said I have the concept and I hopped 2 trains out of Baltimore and on the second time the "experienced" kid showing me the ropes was sucked under and had his right leg cut off below the hip and half his left foot and I made it and looked over to see a older dude who just shook his head and said "your buddy is probably dead and by all counts you should be too". Said if it was a grainer we'd definitely be dead. I told him it was my second time. He told me his name was Sarge part of the old school wrecking crew. I had no idea what an honor it was at the time. By the time we rocked into the next station I knew why my buddy list his legs. We didn't count the lugs. I also took his advice when he said "kid if you're a tramp in your soul find another way to do it. Trains ain't like they used to be and are only getting worse". We parted ways out of the yard and since 1995 I've thought about him and then I saw him again at the port of Brookings harbor. This year. Cool guy and great early experience traveling. Never even romanced train hopping after that day. Fucccckkkkk that

What do you think the chances of this being even half true are?

Yer description of this "document" as you put it pretty clearly shows that you don't understand why stp chooses to follow the authors wishes. You admittedly don't know what yer talking about, and it shows.

Yer not really opposing the mainstream agenda here, yer just showing how ignorant you are about riding freight trains in america. "I don't understand what I'm talking about but I DISAGREE" sounds kinda silly right?

3rd eye organics.....did you used to have an account as @CountrytimeSky ? Just sounds really familiar...

@Django

I've had these same disagreements with the staff about banning people, but this ban is legit.

The fact that this person didnt just IGNORE the site rules (Anarchism has rules, they are dependent upon groups you choose to associate yourself with, not rules on a society as a whole, IMO, but I'm not really an anarchist)

...BUT this person decided to message the fucking admin who made those rules to not ask for the CCG. Not only is providing that info to someone enough to implicate someone as an accomplice to committing a crime....

...it is a document that users have tried, very hard, to keep out of the hands of Law Enforcement. Special Agents are out there, attempting to find out where this information is coming from, and who is using it. Brave Dave is a great example of how Special Agents do pursue and prosecute people for the bullshit charge of trespassing and theft of services (Yes I do know it was because Brave Dave evaded officers, I'm just saying)

I hosted Lilith/@slaapkaamers for 3 nights in Nov 19.
She was an exemplary guest. Good w both conversing and alone time. Trustworthy, didnt steal anything and I felt very comfortable leaving her alone at my place. She didnt stink and not a junky.
Lilith is a legit traveller, she's a sweet, artistic chick w lots of good and interesting ideas to chat about. A pleasure to host. If she's in your neck of the woods you should help her out. 😉
