It looks like a few people are starting to notice how you significantly edit or even delete posts. ODH warned you about this weeks ago in the Risk in the Mountains thread, but you are still doing it:

This along with not putting your real name to your posts, this is bad forum etiquette. But don't worry, I haven't given up on you. I'll just quote everything you say for now on.

Is this the sort of reason you delete them?

Good work acknowledging and adapting to the EDIT Cliff;)

EDIT: it feels better with a colon too. And if you're feeling up to it, give it a crack using a semi-colon... Ooooh mamma does it feel good;)

That sounds to me like some serious shanker bullshit. Better start working on losing these bad habits if you ever want to be any good at climbing.

That's what all the people who want to avoid fracturing both their ankles do..........maybe talk to Egosan about it?

Shit, I never thought of that!??

Where do u come up with this stuff?

About being hard core? Or fracturing ankles?

So what your saying is don't get scared.
Don't check your tie in.
If I pay attention to climbing I will be hardcore and not break my ankles.
Talk to Sol.

Thats it?

Hi Shorty, and all the rest of you Chockers out there, hows it all going. As the sticker on the back of the van said "if this van is rocking, don't laugh your daughter maybe inside!". Hindsight is an amazing tool, shit I would never had broken my ankle if I had known that I was going to break it, maybe I would have stayed at home picking lint out of my navel. I am really glade that Dave had his accident (sorry Dave don't really mean that), I mean it gives everyone that avenue to show just how much they know about this sport that we love, I can hear the chest beating right now. I am not sure how many climbs Dave Macleod has completed/attempted/on sighted/red pointed/pink pointed/top roped/lowered off/abseiled down/bolted/bouldered/looked at/ walked away from and dreamt (dreamed) about, but I would gues that this is one of the first times he was lowered pass the end of the rope. Saying that he should have known better, but shit happens, get over it and move on. For I am sure Dave will be over his injury well before this post is dead.

So long and thanks for listening

Cliff, my favourite thing about you is how you fly off the handle and get all emotional about relatively benign comments. People have been accused of much worse than drivel on Chocky. Didn't your Mum teach you how to deal with bullies? Overreacting just encourages them. This is an internet forum, you might consider developing the extent of your epidermis.

The difference between your post and mine was that you were trying to justify taking 3 kids up Tiptoe ridge using one 50m rope. Whereas, my comment was sensible.

As for editing posts. You end off coming across like this:

Cliff responds to offer to go climbing by calling me a dick

But I jest, I enjoy our banter.

EDIT: I have not removed my name since I created my account in 2005 (note the proper use of the EDIT function. Ie, not changing the content of the original post)

You gotta stay away from the space cake Cliff D.

Sending big welcoming hugs and kind words to you no matter what you write/change/edit or delete.

Just jot down all the rules for how you would like to be responded to...but....don't change 'em!

To be honest I'm just trying to get my post count up to 1000 to get a congratulatory message from M9. It's only the second week of the month and I'm already at 36. Well on track for a PB.

Btw. What was Hex's posting rate per month at his peak? M9?

Aside from the stupendous torrent of insightful advice from extremely experienced climbers telling you this is a total sh*th!ouse idea sure there is absolutely no reason it isnt workable. Please put this one to bed.
