    Who would have thought all the information in the world, consolidated (i.e., the internet), could make us dumber. Pretty soon there will be internet free zones, no internet with 50 feet of buildings, no pregnant women using the internet, etc.

    I murdered it, but Ronny Cheing has a great joke on it.

    You can think of it as cancel culture. I think of it as accountability in the face of ignorance. For every person that reads the story and decides not to do something that is just plain stupid I call it a win. In the long run maybe it will have positive results.

    Folks, Haters, Non-Haters... I shared a positive experience. I’m not ignorant to drop shipping, etc. there have been plenty of people who have purchased through this type of site only to find out the app took their money and their order went into a black hole...
    That said, I’m sure I’ll sleep ok and the “cred” I’ve lost may take years to recover but my experience is based on facts.
    Being a Marine has given me plenty to be proud of. I’m sure I will be able to sleep at night knowing you are saving our National Parks... maybe you fought for them too? If so, thank you for your service!
    If you think what they did was such an unforgivable atrocity, I can respect that. I found it to be a very unwise and stupid decision on their part but they still received my order. I like to support minority owned companies when I can. Support and coaching may promote change vs. boycott . I didn’t purchase a shirt with a picture of the “violation” on it. I bought springs from a vendor via his website.
    I will always share my truth and stand by my beliefs.
    Thank you for your insight and I am open minded. If there is a site that you feel better deserves my money and support and they are minority or veteran owned, please educate me.

    Also, thanks for judging me as a person based on who I purchased springs from.

    Now I’m going to crawl into a cold shower and cry in the fetal position.

    Sincerely and Semper Fi

    from OUTDOOR covering the incident:
    “Rather than devolving into threats and doxxing and media attention, wouldn’t all this have gone better if members of the off-road community had simply treated this as an opportunity to educate TacomaBeast about Leave No Trace principles, then encouraged them to organize a trash cleanup event or something similar in order to make amends? If nothing else, maybe this can teach us all a lesson about what it means to actually be part of a community, online or off.”

    Welcome to the internet, where everyone gets judged in the worst possible light, on the worst thing they've ever posted, and nobody forgets. Do what you think is best, nobody else matters. Also the title edit is 100% win.

    I mean you could have supported the actual manufacturer of those springs, and nice with the "I fought for people to deface national parks" and guise of "supporting minority small business", but hey you do you from another person who spent time in the sand box for our country; and thank you for your service.

    First, if the folks at Tacoma Beast don’t have a clue about the leave no trace concept, then they have no respect for the earth. It’s basic outdoor code type shit.

    second, well... I think I’ll just see my way out now, save the mods from swinging that ban hammer around this close to the holidays.


    Good job Tacoma beast computer system for placing an order and making them a few bucks for doing nothing.

    Mad they defaced a National Park, it's bad enough as it is and they should have known better! Should have! Not saying they did! But the defacing a rock isn't so much the issue as doing dumb shit and bragging about it with the potential of getting trails and areas closed down! Close the trails and I wont be able to justify my Pelfreybilt bumper! SO yea! Much more madder internet hate at them for that! Mad at Pelfrey too for what they did to the community, but that ain't a step in the wrong direction to getting trails closed!!

    FULLDISCLOSURE: I don't have a Pelfreybilt bumper!!
