>Recent Wingfoot quotes (full URLs below):
>
>"I have nothing in common with your view of the Trail, and do not wish to
>associate with you or seek compromise with you."
>
>"...the 21st century definition of wilderness should be "anywhere that
>Bryson hasn't visited and written about..."
>
>"There is nothing except resignation that George [Bush] Jr. could do to
>favorably change my mind about him. He is a mediocre mediocrity and proves
>it every time he opens his mouth. I am ashamed of him daily. I will do
>everything in my power to thwart his agenda."
>
>"I no longer feel kinship with the country of my birth, so it is necessary
>for me to turn elsewhere, since I don't see any prospect that the nation
>will change. I am actively looking at alternatives."
>
>"I won't even bother with your views, except to say that on the reworked
>Trailplace they would never be aired, since they go entirely against what
>this website is and will be about. The new format will not present you that
>opportunity."
>
>"Why don't you issue a public apology here so that I won't remove you [from
>ATML] for that remark?"
>
>"I will be making Trailplace much less interactive. The reason for this is
>... because we have too many people who don't know what the Trail is 
>about."
>
>"I will take you to court if you continue to harrass this forum"
>
>"I don't want you here anymore."
>
>"...made impossible by the interference and politicking of the Appalachian
>Long Distance Hiker's Association. It's one of the dirty little chapters in
>the history of long-distance hiking circles."
>
>
>And comments about Wingfoots filtering system:
>
>"The [ATML] word filter is very aggressive and doesn't like words 
>containing
>the current president's last name, or the name of the competing trail guide
>by ATC, nor does it seem to like the name of another Long Distance Hiking
>Association which co-authors that guide. Avoid those and you are okay."
>
>"It's the *&^% "word filter." You've typed something it doesn't like. Try
>rephrasing your message (as often as necessary) until you get past the
>filter."
