Um, guys, I've actually met these folks and they're nice people.
And at least they're out here actually hiking, unlike those of you sitting around your folks' house in your pajamas slagging people you've never met and never will.
Honestly, the level of negativity here, especially from folks who've never thru-hiked and never will is staggering.
I've met several hundred hikers in the last few weeks here in Georgia.
Some of them rave about this website and some of them can't stand it, or they visited once or twice and then went elsewhere.
Can't blame them for feeling that way either.
