My sincere apologies ... I honestly had no idea that it would be inappropriate to promote a mountaineering book within the section of the forum designated for "classifieds." It will not happen again.

However, I do want to point out that I have been a member of this forum for 6 years, and have posted on a regular basis, so please do not think that I just appeared this week to promote a book. Also, if you knew how little book authors make compared to the amount of time spent on a labor of love, I think you'd be quite surprised. Our average monthly earnings from books over the 11 year period since our first guidebook came out is barely enough to buy a set of 6 quickdraws! :o Needless to say, writing books is not how we make a living!

Again, I apologize and will abide by the site rules as I now understand them.

Since he is a guide, I am guessing advertising - but it is a little hard to tell.

Who names a trip report after them self?

He put it up the day he joined. Definitely commercial. But even if it wasn't, its a really bad trip report. Wack it!

I saw it earlier today and noted it for the one-day rule. He gets the full day just in case by some wild chance he will do more.

There are a few other new pages that look likely to leave SP pretty soon.

This one seems a little suspicious.

And if not, it's a lame page.
