I'm just Glad to hear from you Life is a busy thing to be involved with and posting a report along with photos takes valuable time, you get a pass on that bud. I remember when you first joined up here, we had a PM info thing going on for a while. I'm always happy to hear that you're catching fish and having enjoyable days.

I wonder if a lot of people join just to ask a question, then just "lurk" after that? Or they might just be trying to learn something without asking. This is a great forum and one I visit regularly. I might add that coming here I found people to do business with, cutthroatleaders being one of them and reelflyrod.com.

While my contributions tend to be of limited value, a great number of my posts are "thank yous" to members for posting things I learned from (or am continuing to learn from) or just simple "hey, that's a cool fish/photo/rod/reel/etc." I'm just grateful that this forum functions as such a font of knowledge and I feel obliged to make my gratefulness clear

There are distinct slow periods on this forum (and any other forum) with factors like wx coming into play-- (river's blown out, water temp is 183 Fahrenheit, or forgetting the ice pick....)

But, I always check in a few times a day. I may or may not participate. Often, my lack of posting is owed to having nothing new to add to a given thread-- sometimes I just don't post lest you all get tired of my incessant running of my lips....

I do, however, try to help and encourage, as much as possible any of the 'new guy' threads. Like that painful to listen to Whitney Houston song, I believe the children are our future. Much like the newb posts here. If this site can help them suceed, they will help this site sustain.

I havent been a member or poster here very long. I have to say everyone here is awesome. No bickering imature "honey someone is wrong on the internet" type of stuff

I am a huge Coloradao Avalanche fan and I rarely post there. It is full of 16 year punks in their mom's basement. As I always tell them if I wanted every word I say to be nitpicked I'd go talk to my wife.

Great guys here tons of good info

It's wonderful to see so many positives being written about this site.

Gatortransplant: Your opinions are of great value and enjoyable to read. "Thank Yous" are important, as they let the contributor know that his/her efforts are appreciated.

One of the things I have witnessed here is that we have had members who, after becoming frequent posters became better writers grammatically speaking. Many of us become lax in our written communication skills unless we are required to use them as part of our work. This alone is a good rational for writing to the threads whether posting a question or observation or simply adding your two cents to an ongoing discussion. The increased typing skills that are gathered when you write here frequently are a benefit in and of themselves.

In other words the forum is a learning tool in many ways.
