He wasn't banned.  His thread is still there, profile is still active.  He's just isn't posting to the thread much any more, it would seem.  Read into that what you will.

I just found it odd. I didn't think he'd been banned. Hell, I haven't been banned yet! But I thought it was a funny graphic.

I see both sides.

I rolled my eyes when I saw his first post too.  Calls himself "MasterHiker" even though he admits (in another thread he started) that he hadn't actually gone hiking in years and was only now getting interested in it again, and then walks in with the "I'm a chef!" notion and explains he'll answer everyone's questions and fix everyone's problems with wilderness cooking, even though many folks have been cooking in the wilderness for many years and he, admittedly, hasn't at all.  Seemed a bit full of himself.  "Condescension" is a good word there.

That said, I doubt he was a troll.  Coulda been a valuable member of the boards.  I don't think he really did anything to warrant being "run off."

I find this thread a bit ironic, given the OP who whines like no tomorrow over in the THR about how harshly new members are treated on these forums.  Irony is funny.

good points Mike.

he kind of reminded me of Ron, the LL Bean fanatic.....(but at least he was a pretty humble kid...and polite as anyone I've seen here).  Remember him??

Some loaded up on him and I think Tigger (pre his hiatus from these boards), kind of came to his rescue...he turned out to be a lot of fun w/the wide eyed view of a newbie...all these new discoveries and what was working and not.

I guess I don't let "know it alls" bother me as much as it used to being the father of an eight year old daughter...

ya wanna talk about an expert in their own minds...and the raw enthusiasm to share their new found knowledge?  Looking back, I can remember my father listening to my bs in my mid 20's...30's  and remarking how interesting my concept(s) was??


yeah MaterhikerGhinzochef was way off base on his ideas but we all can't be as perfect as..say....moi
