Look for deals on the X-Scream 9, it is the X-Scream series model from a year
or so ago. Only difference between the 9 and the series is one layer of
Softex, Ski testers I have spoken to have said there is no real difference,
one tester skied with one 9 and one series each foot and could tell no
difference.

You could get in touch with Remington. You could also call your local
Salomon Rep (Area Pro Rep) or get a favor thru an Instructor or a Ski
Patrol Person. You could also buy a pair of Olin Sierra's, cheaper and a
better performer (IMHO) than the X Scream Series . If you like Yellow,
spray paint the topskin of the Sierra and tell your friends that you are
skiing on a Test ski.

Bad advice, Barry.

Spray them white, call them "white tops" and tell people that they were
skied by the reviewers at three different ski magazines, all of whom rated
this "white top" as the best ski.

If anyone wants to lay their hands on some Sierras, Remington *might*
have some at the moment...! Sans one pair, in a fedEx warehouse
somewhere in Oz, waiting out the Easter shut-down.  email him at

Oh, this is just wonderful!

You were making such disparaging comments, not just about me but about Olin
Sierras, when I posted that I was happy as a clam with mine.

Glad you have finally seen the light.

Sorry that as an "expert" and ski promoter your own judgment as to what is a
good ski takes second fiddle to who is a person on your vendetta list for
calling you on your b.s.

All those disparaging comments about the Olin Radiuses that you had, the
ones that my daughter is now enjoying, just becaue some fat guy beat you in
a downhill race and a race through the gates, and shamed you publicly for
your thieving and manipulative ways. Here you got so caught up with your own
personal vendetta that you presented your "expert opinion" on skis based on
what personal vendetta you were engaged in, rather than what ski is a good
ski. And those Olin Radiuses you scoffed at so much aren't really that
different from the Olin Sierras that you now praise to the hilt.

But, hey, never let gifing any actually good avcice to others get in the way
of your own vendettas and the main focus of rec.skiing.anthea, recognizing
you as the Queen Bee.

Those Zoom skis I wrote about? Thgose Zoom Cascades? The ones I used in my
article about the first-ever Usenet***order?
http://SportToday.org/
minions (like "Mindless Minion," the odopt Steve Lie-berman, who forgot and
left his signatrure ASCII art in his "anonymous" post) don't have the
brainpower to see a four-letter Zoom as being like Olin, or "Zoom Cascades"
being "Olin Sierras." You and your gang aren't very swift off the block in
the mental department.

Now that David Hobbs, you and the rest of the gang, with your forged posts
drawing Tom Petrick into this fray against his will, have succeeded in
killing Scott's connections, I have no problem whatsoever in retitling the
artifdle "When is it a felony to talk about Olin skis?" I have done so. (for
the bean-counters: 20 changes on my Web pages)

So you got a***order to prevent Scott from raving about Olin Sierras, so
that you could be the "expert" now praising those same Olin Sierras. I sure
love mine! Sorry you're so bent on your personal vendettas that you have to
make your personal points first, and only then offer some actually useful
skiing advice. And I'm flattered that you follow my lead and finally
recognize the better ski:

a bit of departure from your vendetta of half  a year ago, when you were
raving about those X Scream skis and scoffing at my choice of the Olin
Sierras.

A clue - in giving ski advice, it is often helpful to put aside your own
personal vendettas, and your views of other people, in forming your
judgments about what is a good ski. People might then actually find your
advice about skiing helpful.

I'm thrilled that you have finally come around to my point of view.

Jesus fvcking Christ Bert, you'd best get someone to change your nappy
(that's "diaper" to you, I believe)  and then maybe your head will start
operating according to the user manual.

I didn't write the stuff you quoted. That was written by the original
poster.
Are you *sure* you are qualified to teach people how to use the
internet?
Since you're replying to MY post, my comments will be prefaced by ONE
(1) quotemark. That's these little doodads: >
The above comments had TWO (2) quotemarks in your post. Therefore it's
not mine. Is any of this making sense?

Of course, we know what you're really up to; selective mis-quoting, as
per usual. Do you teach your students how to do this, too? I hope this
course of yours is cheap.  That way unhappy students can go after you in
the small claims court.

Anthea,

You really enjoy the ad hom attacks and the references to what one does for
a living IRL, don't you? I imagine you're quite proud of being the first to
bring mention of my new job to this newsgroup, aren't you?

Hey, I'm glad you finally figured out the difference between a > and a >> in
quotes and attributions. It was clear to everyone, but you are a little slow
on grabbing onto those kinds of subtleties.

But you *have* come around to my point of view, hard as it is for you to
admit it. Half a year ago you had nothing good to say about Olin Radiuses,
Olin Sierras or anything Olin. And here you are, eagerly anticipating the
Olin Sierras you bought from Remington. Knowing how tight you are with the
dime, your laying out money for the skis you were railing against speaks
volumes.

Sure hope FedEx will be able to deliver them ... you'll be delighted.

For someone who teaches about the Internet you show a concerning lack of
netiquette. Writing your text above the 'sender' line and quoted text is
utterly inapropriate.
