A climbing community or a fantasy world 12-Feb-2013 At 11:29:33 AM singersmith
Cry me a river, Andrew. You come off sounding like a kid who desperately wants to be a member of the "in" club but can't figure out why you don't get any respect or new friends for spraying bolts all over boulder problems. I have to break the news: its not a great way to introduce yourself.

Reputations matter in climbing much, much more than in the fantasy "real" world. Nicknames and avatars differentiate people with common names and mark those who are questionable. Like who would go climbing with a guy everyone calls The Sleepy Belayer? My real name is David Smith but it would be great if I had a dollar for every time someone said, "Hey Singer, can you fix this?" You're in danger of getting stuck with a name like "Sir Boltsalot". The notion that the Myface is a wholesome circle of people holding hands singing "Kumbaya" is comical; there is plenty of vitriol stirred in with the false optimism over there.
