Well, to each their own. I think you would have plenty of those same people who irritate you with self congratulatory numbers posts, joining you in Tucson's lesser watering holes, as that is a very popular HAZ event, too. I never minded your posts. I find, that if there is something I don't care about, I click the "x" to the upper right. Problem solved. There have been several people who greatly resent this self congratulatory act, but no one forces you to observe it, and the site has much to offer should one enjoy hikes but not the pseudo-competitive aspects of it. That said, I recently changed my header to reflect the number of days since my last hike, becuase I was not on the board for 2016 and it read all zeros. I might leave it that way, to get my mind off the numbers and to help me to want to go out, simply to go out. Right now, I find that the analysis is a little depressing. Not because I am not competing, but because I am not hiking. We're nearly 1 week in to 2016, and I have no hikes in sight. I may not be able to hike until the 11th, at the earliest. That, not a lack of performance compared to others, is what bothers me.
Now, please enjoy this blurry image from my last really enjoyed hike at Castle Dome:
