Ian: The sticker is a one time fee that that the brand pays to get all the boards stamped?
Stefaans: That is an issue with the producer of the board, and has nothing to do with this.
Fred: I agree...I think the Olympic organization sucks and I don't know enough about IKA...but regardless these things cost money to run. I've helped arranging different events, and the number of hours and the manpower it takes is pretty harsh.
We are working on something here, but just the insurance and fees to have an event has a cost. I couldn't care less about the box rule, but I do agree with the thought behind it.
It might slow development down, but that isn't always a bad thing.
Lobo: What do you mean capitalist meat? You never buy anything? I don't even understand this as an argument. If you say you do not want to feel like meat well, just eat chips and eat candy and most people will treat you like you are fat?? Lol just kidding. My point is unless you want to create your own society unfortunately we're still part of a system that uses money to trade.
..but hey if anyone else wants to buy dark fiber, I'm in. Just let me see if I can come up with the $2bill it costs to stretch a cable through the pacific.
