Hi Wily, Thanks for taking the time to comment. Satire is tricky and you're right - as a beginner, it might be hard to take something away from this. Generally, our content isn't aimed at beginners, although that's just because we tend to stay away from the how-to stuff since it's done so much by others. You did recognize it's a joke, so I'm assuming you also would have figured out that doing the opposite of these things in each case actually could be used as advice on etiquette. I can see how it may have come off as bitter or jaded but there is a lot of behaviour out there on the trails that violates common sense or respect for others which is hard to digest for those that have been at this for a while now, and that's the real message here. In general, if you're thinking of others and trying not to be a dick, you're starting off on the right foot. Hope to see you again in here soon, and I'm also heartened to hear that Google news picked this one up.
