I wonder what he thought he would accomplish, by sending
hate mail?

You sir, and your organization are at the very least
overeducated ignoramuses. If you actually hiked (or God
forbid biked) in the wilds you would see the world you are
trying to protect much different light. Nature my dear boy
is much more durable than you think! To even suggest that
mountain bikers are destroying the wilds is quite ridiculos.
Maybe at best (or worst) mountain biikes cause less than 1%
of true destructive damage(hikers cause more by shear
numbers) wildlife probably causes comparable damage, and if
you take consider all the uses of our natural resources
(recrerational, commerecial, etc.) mountain biking even at
it most destrucive level is hardly worth noting. Erosion is
just the movement of soil to one place to another, whether
it is manmade or natural it is not forever, the topsoil does
not dissapear it just gets moved, and may very well may move
back. Anyhow I could go on and we could argue without end,
one common ground is that we both love the wild and want to
see it remain heatlthy, but we all must compromise and at
time those compromises whether wrong or right must be
accepted. I am afraid for you that mountain bikes are here
to stay, and to suggest that we must ban them is silly and
will only create more of a rift between us all. There are
much larger and more dire fights to fight, this is not one
of them. matt
p.s. you should get out more.

I am working on creating wildlife habitat that is off-limits

previous 8 years fighting auto dependence and road
construction.)

The best way to deal with abusive email is to post it for

Actually I am a newbie and I was on your side. I just
googled you bro and you don't make any sense and I have
fought many of the same fight you have. You a nut!

Killfile for you.

"post it for the world to see"... I seem to recall the "Mike
Vandeman FAQ" which did just that. Posted your nonsense in a
central location for the world to see. Your name-calling,
your finger-pointing and hacked up "scientific" data. The
FAQ was an actual representation of your trolling, baiting
and ng tactics. It showed your typical posts, reposts and
shallow arguments from this forum. Then you threatened to
sue the man for doing exactly what you just did. Posting for
the world to see. And all he had was actual, unaltered posts
from a public forum displayed and categorized so people
would be able to see which arguments have already been
posted and reposted. So Mr. Doublestandard rises to the
occasion again... What a surprise!

There is nothing hateful in the message, just a dose
of reality.

You and Vendicar are obvious mental cases, doesn't you
psychiatrist tell you this?

Dear Mr. Vandeman, Why in Hell can't you trim the excess
******** from your posts? First of all, your posts are inane
at best, and second, there are several inches of header data
that has nothing at all to do with anything.

Let me suggest that you post in plain text so that you see
what you hapless audience must endure.

You know, for a PhD, you are one stupid son of a *****.
The problem I have is that my statement makes bitches
look bad ...

Well said. What is the complaint here. It is factual, and
was said with brevity.

If 100% of ALL ROUTES was a complete and utter environmental
wasteland, the impact to the rest of the environment would
be in the range of 0.0004% of environment of places where
there are routes. The destruction is considerably less than
1%, and quite likely less than the animals themselves would
cause in any given area.

Aint that the truth!

I don't detect any abuse here at all. I also see no
particular evidence that the author is a mountain biker. I
happen to agree with his main point, and I am not a mountain
biker. This topic could have been posted by my brother, and
I know for a fact that he has no bikes.

If you can't stand the heat, perhaps the kitchen is not the
place for you to be standing.

Really? Google doesn't show that. It shows that you are a
typical mountain biker.

So, disagreeing with you automatically makes someone a Mt
Biker? What kind of logic is that? This thing is cross-
posted over several different groups. Does agreeing with you
automatically make someone an idiot? MV is a hiker. All
hikers are not MV. Thank God!

Like your "editorial comments" that all mt bikers are liars.
That only hikers enjoy the outdoors. That anyone who
disagrees with your philosophy (make no mistake, it is a
philosophy) is either stupid or ignorant. Your posts are
nothing but "editorial comments". How is your posting of an
opinion in a free speech environment any better than anyone
else? You have always had a double standard. Your posts are
gospel, while disagreeing posts are sacrilege. You are
myopic to any other view and the nly person who is being
fooled is you.

Sounds like the same kind of language you (MV) use to
describe anyone who disagrees with you. That double standard

hate-speach when MV does it, is it?
