RRC newsgroup (rec.roller-coaster) debate continue

Monday, October 13, 2003 6:10 PM
As a first time poster to guidetothepoint with this topic, they suggested to post this at CoasterBuzz for discussion since it didn't really involve ONLY Cedar Point...which is what guidetothepoint is all about.

As a long time lurker on this site and with my recent move to the Sandusky area I thought, what a better time to join then now? So I would like to say hi to everyone now

The most recent discussion going on at the newsgroup, rec.roller-coaster is related to 'certain' membes who continue to break park rules by bringing cameras and camcorders onto coasters, standing up on coasters while they are in motion and the latest as of today was regarding 'Coaster Alley Convergence 2004'. Apparently yet another park has now decided to basically cancel coaster enthusiast outings for next year because of what happened with the death earlier this year not to mention the folks who continue to break park rules, which puts their safety as well as other park guests safety at risk.

I'm not going to mention any names here but anyone who has been around online for a while and visits coaster sites probably knows who I'm talking about. There is now a message on their website that says as of today, they are not going to post onride pictures or POV video on their site anymore because they are being "witch hunted" and that their site is being "policed" and they don't appreciate it. Yet they are two of the people who continue to break rule after rule after rule.

I'm curious to know what you Ohio guys and gals think about this with regards to the parks in Ohio. Do you follow the rules or do you do want you want? And do you think it's ok for others to break park rules just because they think they can get away with it?

The coaster season is coming to a end now so I thought this would be a good discussion to start off the cold and BORING months ahead

I look forward to meeting some of you next year perhaps at Cedar Point, just wished I had of moved earlier this season instead of at the end of it

Why must this argument be brought onto these boards also? It's bad enough that I have to skip over half of RRC to find the good stuff everyday. Now I have to do the same thing here. Can't everyone just let sleeping dogs lie?

Like I just said on GTTP

Blah Blah Blah Blah it's all their fault Blah Blah Blah Blah They made us lose our ert Blah Blah Blah etc etc

Enough already.

If I was part of a coaster, I would be an upstop pad on an Arrow Mine Train.

If everyone knows who you're talking about why are you not naming names? That's a pretty spineless thing to do.

Ryan, welcome to Coasterbuzz. In order to help you enjoy your stay here, I'd like to introduce you to my little friend, Mr. Search button. :)

You'll find this topic has been well discussed already, and I don't think there really is much more that can be said without repitition. The older existing threads about this should be more than enough to provide you with the general consensus.

Hey, this sounds like *exactly* the reason why I read Coasterbuzz instead of RRC. Keep this mindless stuff on RRC, please. We have very vapid things to discuss here.

Hot stuff.

If it came from RRC, you can sure as hell bet I have no desire to chat about it here. Pissing matches and flame wars aren't my bag.
