    Will do Dave,

    By the way, I put an article written a year ago on my blog. It was about Forums and specifically this one. I was ask for an article based on my experience here by a magazine publication. When I sent copy on what I had written they then told me they needed 500 word maximum in what they ran...................... So, we didn't really work together on anything I had written, it seems I'm long winded

    Please remember, this was written in February of 2011, I did edit some numbers to make them current but other wise it is in its original first draft form, you might enjoy what I had to say.

    OK, while we are airing the sheets. Let's talk about this one from my list. I hate when somebody gives bad advice worse than socks that creep. It doesn't happen much, but on the rare occasion that it does, it seems they really hate being called on it.

    People come to this forum for advice. I came to this forum for advice. I was looking for advice on Walleye fishing. A google search led me to a post by HuronRiverDan. That's how I found this forum. I have since become pretty good at getting Walleye on a fly rod. Now what if I had been spoon fed a pile of malarky? Maybe I would have been OK, maybe not. Maybe it would have taken longer to get where I am. My point is, I would not have been helped in any way, shape or form by a load of wrong BS. I hate wrong BS. I have a hard time letting it slide. I am not a big fan of the spammer type either. Combine the two and I really am not going to be a fan of yours, to say the least. We have one who posts fairly often, but has knocked off the spam, and one who is in full spam/bad info mode. The first only posts a load of BS on a few things, and I'm sure he's a fine fisherman in his own area of comfort. The other is just a load of spamming wrongery. I won't point out who they are, but I think it's wrong to allow them to go unchallenged in their spam ridden wrong balogna. Since we seem to have been infected by facebook, like this if you think "wrong" should not be allowed to fly.

    It's only natural to become this large when the site is this good. I ditto what Jaybo says. Which btw, the one time jaybo and I fished, we met a few members from a "former" site we both were on. Controversy was live and in person then. Quite interesting. And yes, jay and I had a few comments...whcih we kept to ourselves

    Sounds to me as though Diva Dan has got it figured out. If he doesn't like what you have to say and can't find logical arguments to refute what you have to say, he simply hijacks the thread and begins name calling.
    For me, "Pot stirring" as he so eloquently puts it, is what makes me think and evaluate my opinion on a subject. i am willing to change my opinion if I am shown facts that warrant a change. If you don't occasionally stir the pot, its contents get burned on the bottom!
    How about it Diva Dan? Can we come to some agreement here?

    I missed the part where you showed the logic in picking which laws you believe were OK to break. As the potstirring, just read your last comment, better yet go look at your list of posts. I think I made it pretty clear, I don't like law breakers and self professed poachers.

    And you started off with your very first post smamming. Here is a link to your first relpy.

    So unless you are saying you are a lawbreaking, potstirring spammer I don't think we will be agreeing.
