Well after spending a little time on here....less than 24 hrs ......I have no interest in wasting anymore of my time on it. I have been sent one after another private message fucking gang raping me about missing the bit on posting an intro and making comments on things before doing so. Some of you guys are off your fucking rockers and I would think most are trying to relive your youth through here... which in a way I was so stoked to find this place ....well I would think most of us as kids would have told our old versions to fuck right off. Good luck in stewing in your miserable shit.

Some these guys on here think they are still 20! I got the same treatment when I came aboard as well. They tend to think that the only skaters are crusty 50-60 somethings trying to protect a sport that is dying! Welcome to the board.

Some people need to become part of the forum and get to know us a little etc. Which having checked your posts is exactly what you need to do. Don't t just pop up and try to buy some stuff without so much as a hello.

Don't like it here, then leave, but don't winge about it.

Maybe intimidation is the incorrect word, but trying act like the tough guy, or the bully. Its such BS. People just want to connect to skateboarding not that shit. The sport and what it meant to them as kids. I grew up surfing and skating with localism-lucky to be on the good side of it. But it was BS then and it is now. This site promotes that type of mentality still. I said enough and done with it. Have a great day!

I don't know specifics about Tobias' experience, or the now bailed Keith, but there are a number of guys who have made it their pure objective to run people off.  When Wes was doing a lot of production decks and selling out of them in minutes (or less), it seems like a way to cull the competition for new decks.  That shit happened to me here initially, until I let a few people have it point blank in PM.  I have been given rations of shit for merely suggesting people post up an Intro and for posting up the rules Wes put in force about BST.  Both of those are from Wes, not me.  But dickheads are dickheads.  

Now the place is a ghost town, Wes isn't producing anything new, and people are getting kicked off for sharing a different political opinion.  BDS is a shadow of its former self, but some of the hardliners from early on haven't lost that attitude.  It's nowhere near the amount of nonsense as it once was; read some of the older posts if you don't believe it.  2006 - 2009 was particularly brutal.  Kinda sad what this place has become.

Good post MikeInMD. Thanks for sharing. I have thick skin. Like I said, I grew up with this stuff when I was younger. But that was then, it's the past. There's a reason no one is skating anymore, and it's because of the attitudes like that. It is a shame cause it is an art form. Have a great day, and thanks for the post.
