Dan, please give it a rest.
The debate IS silly. Your constant attacking of someone's character really detracts from your message.
If you were truly concerned about someone getting your identity correct, you would use your real name and perhaps your hometown.
Kellogg's statement about you was found in the link that you provided. To be fair, the statement referenced a man in Portland, Oregon, but all knowledgeable readers could understand that the interviewer meant you. I had never heard of Adventure Sports magazine before you provided the quote. But the quote you provided doesn't really say much to besmirch your character; it says more about responsible and safe climbing than it does about your character.
<<No need to travel thousands of miles to AK, Dan's offered Kellogg $750, then $2000, now $5000 to simply do a Rainier speed climb that's timed, Chad refuses each time over 3 years now. This is very telling, he can't afford to be timed on Rainier.>>
And it would appear that you are unwilling to appear in an independently timed and judged race anywhere in North America. Here are some websites that describe mountain running races in Alaska, Colorado, New Hampshire, and Mexico. Surely a true mountain running afficianado such as yourself would make the time, barring injury, to participate against head-to-head competition in one of these events.
Although you called Mr. Kellogg a loser, any objective mountain climber could easily see that he has dome some very respectable feats. What was your time on Kichatna Spire? What was your time on Mount McKinley? What? You didn't do them? How, then, could you have any basis to call him a loser?
And, for the record, Dan, I have never posted anything remotely related to you, Dan Howitt, or speed climbing on any website other than this one. And, other than postings on this webiste, I have neither corresponded with nor emailed you (Dan Howitt). And, again, I have never had the pleasure of meeting nor corresponding with Mr. Kellogg - so it is inaccurate to say that he is my friend.
Stop the diatribes now.
