Re: Have we become too sensitive?

And absolutely Google made a legal business decision. But they made a wrong decision, a discriminatory double standard decision. As indeed the laws are wrong and discriminatory and full of double standard. Discrimination is legal against out of favor(with government and corporations) groups, but no...

Re: Have we become too sensitive?

I'm thinking that the politics discussion has been very quiet for a long time. Google made a perfectly legal business decision. A U.S. company can terminate employment for no reason, or for any reason other than a very few specific reasons. I don't think it is possible to read anything into Google'...

Re: Have we become too sensitive?

You are most likely correct. He has suffered from the PC bias of the current corporate world, our governments and much of brain washed society. They promote openness, but not that kind of openness. They want him and all of their employees to be open to the concept that a woman can do anything a man ...

Re: 9 steps to responsible hammocking

looks pretty thorough as far as responsible hanging goes. But how would one identify an established hanging site? Presumably we would leave no trace, right? But maybe that means an authorized spot, where hanging is officially allowed in an established camp ground? What is with the "never hang more t...

Re: Why is my hammock suspension too tight/too loose?

I must have picked up some skills related to hanging a hammock over the years, as just today I pulled off something that I gave up on way back in 2006-07. What I gave up on is hanging a hammock from any trees in my yard. The only time I have really done this in the past is when I used two 2X4s in an...

Three new members in 16 minutes tonight!!! Woo-Hoo!!! Now Facebook has blocked me from writing to anyone else tonight.

Let's make these new members feel welcome!
FB has blocked you? For telling folks about this site? Or perhaps it was certain FB groups that did that? Either way, not good!

Re: I SOOOO wish this forum was more crowded...

A late reply. I belong to several forums with subjects other than hammocks or even camping so I want to relate my experience. Once I owned a weekly newspaper and belonged to a small town journalist web group. It was an email forum and I got a few posting everyday. For the most part it was people li...

SORRY, I'M GOING OFF TOPIC on my own thread, but this is all in response of the idea of using vitamin C to show how even brilliant nobel prize winning scientists can be wrong...
