It's for the case of a good thread that gets going, lost of well-thought out replies and a good number of respondents and then poof! The OP deletes it for some reason. In one case a fairly solid and...

I would have thought that deliberately breaching the regulations makes one an outlaw, not a member of any elite.

If anyone is interested in peaks that once had a tower, which has been removed, my wife and I once visited a rather obscure one. We thought the tower would still be there but it was long gone. In...

OK. Got it. Wiltse did come down pretty hard on Schlimmer but then Welch defended him while coming down hard on the DEC. That's probably how a lot of science gets done. Experts beating on each...
