Re: Oh no not another etiquette thread!!!
Wt, this is a good subject.
The problem, is that "ethics" vary too much from place to place.
Around here, we have only one spot that you will see people lined up "combat style".
Anywhere else around here, it's considered rude to try and share a pool.
We don't even want to see you, let alone fish next to you.
There is plenty of water, walk on.
The flip side, if you already have a pool, don't sit on it all day. Others might like to fish it.
Down nearer population centers, there is a tendency to crowd up a little more.
So, when people come up that are used to crowding, they stand a bit close.
It is like they say "When in Rome, fish like they do."
Consider changing to local style when you travel.
Otherwise, an evil eye may focus on you, and we don't want bad fish juju, do we?

more like a shortcut to reality."
