    I see that the days of being respectful of USMS leadership are gone too. It's wonderfult to have *anything goes* forums. Great PR for USMS.
    As stated, we don't have an "anything goes forum" If a usms officer posts their opinion, that is not an official usms position, then the rest of the posters have the right to comment on it, either agreeing or ripping it. If forum members don't agree or feel the op is being snarky, the responders can express their view. That doesn't mean it is a "free for all" Don't understand why that is soooo difficult for you to understand.

    Wook-a-ding-dong,

    After reading your emotionally charged tributes to your BFF Bill, I wouldn't want to be the one responsible to censor your two's intimate interaction.

    Moderators,

    Don't judge. Let them be whom they need to be!

    Please do not call me "darlin'" or other derogatory names. Fortress (spelled properly) will be just fine.

    I think you have out-posted me on at least a 10:1 basis on recent threads. And your posts have all been overbearing, rude, mocking and laden with insults. It is you who are setting a bad example for USMS. Perhaps Mike Heather needs to give you a scolding too?

    In reality, I haven't even been on the forums that much lately. I tend to prefer the blogs, which are informational, inspirational and often refreshingly funny and honest.

    I really can't believe that you actually wrote this ...

    Respect is earned, not automatically given. I have none for you. And, just to preempt your predictable reply, I don't care what you think of me.

    Connie,
    You stated that MVN doesn't carry any additional, third party insurance. That may be the reason why all MVN members, even those not participating in the formal workouts, are required to be USMS members. It appears that MVN may be utilizing USA-S and USMS insurance to cover their liability. While it may not be unique, it is certainly different than any USMS team that I've been involved with.

    I've dealt with this for last 10 years myself. I don't have to know it all, as you seem to think. Some things I actually do know, regardless of your rash and twisted opinions.

    If you followed the thread, you would have noticed taht only clarification I asked for was from was Rob Copeland himself, since he pointed out that something I said was incorrect.

    I don't recall asking you for help, and considerign your continuous hostility towards me, you're the last person on earth I would want help from, should I ever need it, so don't go flattering yourself too much.

    That's exactly what it is.

    Yes.
    In some cases it works on way, in other cases, it workes the way you've seen it.

    I was using our team as an example that I'm most familiar with (before it took a detour through the insurance details), to illustrate a point I was trying to make earlier about 'noodlers'.

    There's no quick and easy way to know if they are and aren't USMS members. Theres' a fair number of pretty large teams in my LMSC, so it's not exactly a sare assumption that those people are not USMS members.

    But even if they aren't, and even if I can participate in all kinds of things myself, as is pretty obvious here, I don't believe its' a good or a right thing to do.

    Unlike your across the board negative attitude, I actually respect people untill they actually do something that warrants my disrespect.

    That might be your problem. To blindly respect people is where problems are caused. Respect is something to be earned, not handed out.

    No. I won't hide behind pm's. If I have something to say, I will say it for all to read. Wait, that might go against what you want out of a discussion forum. Oh the horror!

    Perhaps he should, he's welcome to it. I'd agree with him too.

    What's going on here is extremely inapropriate, IMO, but hey, who cares, I'm a nobody, it's free for all opining, and allowed. Who do I think I am I to judge anyways. I'll just do my best to fit in, and see how that works out.

    I just want to see what people *really* think about bad behavior, when they are not trying to justify their own. Looks like whean it's not *you* doing itm, even you don't agree that bad behavior is a good thing. Why, who woullda thunk!

    I don't have to justify or defend my bad behavior, I openly admit I am being a brat, and doing here what I don't believe should be allowed, but is.

    Those of you looking down your nose at it are just supporting my initial argument that it's not a good thing, regardless of whether I or anyone else is doing it.

    Boy this reminds me of the old days when Ion used to get everyone
    riled up and acting like parents and children. We have now just come
    full circle folks.
