I found it interesting that one poster thought that having untidy hair meant a person was disrespectful to the audiences/people in general.
When people's hair is untidy, it has nothing whatever to do with you, and has a lot to do with them.
1. Were they depressed or ill this morning?
2. Do they have fine hair that no matter how much gel and spray they put on it, a gust of wind turns it into a haystack?
3. Do they run their hands through their hair when they feel confused or upset?
4. How many cowlicks do they have? (My dad had 6 and it was very difficult to get his hair tidy. The only solution was to part it dead down the center, so he always looked like the 1930's as to hair).
and so on.

I'm not sure it's unfair, though given how difficult a level four step sequence is to do and how few of the men actually do it, it's odd that it's base value is lower than a triple toe, something all senior men are capable of doing.

I was making an example of "bashing" to contrast with my original remark about his untidy hair, which was not bashing at all in my mind. There is a big difference between the two: One is simply stating a fact (Untidy hair distracts my attention); the other is harsh and gratuitous. And the point I tried to make was: The mere complaining about his hair should not be automatically interpreted as "bashing". It depends on how it is said and what logic it is based on.

If there IS "hating" and "bashing" going on, report it.

Antagonizing people just turns more off to what you're saying. Coming into a thread with a chip on your shoulder makes every critique sound like a bash. ALL general skating boards are just as "harsh" in their critiques of the skaters. We are not immune to this.
