Thanks to Tom for calling out the Photo-shopped "Shreddin" pic. when I first saw the thumbnail I thought that something just doesn't look right. After reading Tom's reply, I opened the larger version of Epic's profile pic. Check it out for yourself. Notice there's no track behind the snowboard and he's in a pretty relaxed upright postion for being on avalanche debris in a 45 degree chute. Who's the troll calling trollz?

While everyone has just as much of a right to the rock as the next person, ruining the experience for someone else due to your own incompetence and inability to swallow your pride and realize you are not ready for the style of route (for these folks multi-pitch), is plain rude and can cause, among other things, epics, unplanned bivys, and lots of headaches. That also qualifies as, "being a dick" in my book.

It strikes me as bad form (& pointless) to bring such stuff up on the web. Unless they were purposely endangering you or other parties, just let it go, no? Why the fuss?

I agree with the notion that posts like this can come across like a rant (which epic specifically admitted upfront), but I do believe they have some value. More and more folks are getting their information from sites like this. Often, you have people who ask for advice before even consulting a guidebook, which is either lazy or naive or both.
Often when folks like the trollz are confronted, they'll say something like 'you're just being rude; why don't you try to educate people rather than diss them.' These type of posts are increasingly becoming that form of education. So while many of us don't need posts like this to learn proper etiquette, to the extent that even one or two people come away from them with a better understanding of the issue, I believe these posts/threads are worth having.
