Forum is fine. Only problem is people not getting along with others starting crybaby threads about how everybody sucks but them in the section devoted to discussing skateboarding. You ever hear the old quip "If you meet three assholes in a day, maybe you are the asshole?" Its a valuable one.

Not enough gay porn. I came here to Slap my willy and it's all Chicks with dicks, Chase Webb, and Research chemical drug abuse. Even that guy GAY just posts witty comments.

GAY is in his worst phase, since when I got here

He's gone from a little gay, to FULL BLOWN FLAMING.

HAAAAAY

I feel like GAY is entering his "playing the oldies in sold-out stadiums for huge money" phase.

I'm definitely old now, which has to factor into the decline of my comment quality over the years. And the money I make posting here is pretty amazing, so yeah...

Interesting source of information, but the level of bitterness and/or nerdiness can be over the top.

I liked Tracer. I didnít think he was as dumb as people thought he was on here.

But these ridiculous threads lately have turned this board into a shit show.

Tracer went up North into those oil fields to make the big cake. Got a roller hockey sponsership, quit skating, and now only posts on pornhub.

Or he enjoys posting on his alt accounts more than his T-racer acct

Forums are straight, the culture definitely changed though. There used to be way more trolling and there used to be a universal favorite skater on here (Pete Eldridge, then it was Busenitz, then it was Pontus Alv).

+ Sales thread kills it
+ Shoes and Gear section is some of the best skate content online.

-UWTB fell off a bit, and it's the source of 90% of Slaps bad rep lol
-Other sections like music/video games are cool but there are far better places online to discuss that stuff

We've come to the realization that traditional skate media won't (or can't) call people out for fucking up because they have advertisers / audiences to please.

When people refer to the truth as negative content (looking at you Nine Club), that's when you know things have become distorted and a place like SLAP is ever more important.

Yea, there's a lot of bullshit that gets posted, but it's an open forum for a bunch of people who spend their lives running amuck in the streets, risking life and limb for adrenaline rushes. We're a bit of a junkie culture and having a place to express our thoughts is a positive in my view point. Others would rather keep those without "status" in the industry silent.

Sure, people can come up in here and make up a bunch of bullshit about someone, but eventually that shit gets debunked or the facts get exposed.

It's interesting to see how some people view this place as a shit hole, while others celebrate it's existence. Take the good with the bad I guess.

Like that nut article, I like that we are discussing and outing real issues because yea, the skate industry wont.  But because of that, the people offended by "sjw pc" types just troll even harder now.  Like the 6 fake "____ is racist" threads in UWTB.  and now theres a bunch of new posters that are gonna take a bit to learn how to not kook it, but im glad to have more people here because it makes for a broader spectrum of skaters.

Downside of having moral debates on here is you find out who has shit opinions and you cant take their other posts seriously.

Unpopular opinon, but im glad we dont have any more "ben raemers sister" type threads anymore, that was some jock shit.
only in skateboarding is putting an adult in a position where they might have to actually work for their income "ruining their life"  ::)

Well, it almost imploded this last week for obvious respectable reasons. The argument for Mike V only pushing and leaving the burden of doing real tricks for the minorities was top notch.

SLAP is a cool window to the amazing worldwide world of skateboarding. To me thats what this place is all about since forever. Of course a majority of the threads here are about US stuff but thats understandable because well...ya all know. Its also cool to watch how society in general evolves and how that affect the manners here. At the end of the day the only thing we can have for sure its change. Change its happening right know and it wont stop everywhere.

I have tons of respect for a lot of posters here and I can laugh with many random things that only makes sense if you are this special kind of skatenerd. Its important this place and I dont think its gonna fade away.
