LOL. Good question. Snobbery, clique-ishness. Used to see a lot of 595/Reactor, Pro Line, Advantage snobs. I was just mentioning a guy I had on a 45 who got pushed into a Pro Line I think it was, because some old time skater told him it was better. Shiny and more expensive. Better? Such a slippery slope. It depends on the skater.

But, you are pretty right. It is ugly out there. Jam skaters, art, rhythm, speed, derby, dance. I dunno why. I wonder if anyone will come up with a good theory.

I can trace the derby developement I saw in LA. At first, they were all nice and friendly, took advice, asked questioned. Then after a couple of years, they were "it" and you weren't. LOL
