Well, I can guarantee you I looked sillier when I hit the silt in a stream at full speed, the shock and tire sank into the silt and I took flying lessons over the bars. My neck still hurts one month later.
No, I've never heard another MTBer make any wise cracks about someone carrying their bike over an obstacle, except when teasing a freind. IMHO, we all know each of us has different limits and those limits are respected.
EDIT: I like to leave mud on my bike, it's sort of an honor symbol. But I always make sure my cable guides are free of debris. I learned that one the hard way after I experienced chain suck three times on one ride due to a jammed cable.
