    I give reps cause I dig the post, want to say hi and I'm too lazy to pm, sometimes just to say my piece w/o having to hear a reply. I even rep the people that hate me just to show I'm fair, huh FM?

    Due to an unfortunate compromise with another member, I can't honestly answer this question in the manner I would prefer. Therefore, I will simply answer with the two reasons I give rep. First, if a post is actually useful in my life, I give rep. The other reason I give rep is for posts that I find extremely comical. If I laugh loud enough for my wife to hear me upstairs, the poster is getting rep, whether I am friends with the poster or not.

    I'm a dipnetter and FB and I get along dandily. Heck, we're even fly rodding together in the next few days. He doesn't dislike all dipnetters .

    On a different note, I agreed to significantly reduce the negative comments aimed @ FM. I owe a debt to the gentleman who made the request and will do my best to honor that request (on this forum)...as long as the current level of BS ceases immediately. Clear?

    I "rep" for substance and witty humor.

    sometimes my chicken pecker style gets carried away and well, my grammer and typo's really show. and well, when i rep is usually an accident.

    but slowing down a bit-i rep for all the reasons one could imagine. among those already given + i rep for big fish photos, and i got nothing hunting stories, and mind your own dang business, and yes i rep until i run out.

    but i think "truth" is what rep is really all about in theory, that what you say is reputable. however, sometimes i drink and so i rep for fat chicks

    I give rep whenever someone helps me personally, or whenever I see a "good" contribution to a topic, ie: one that shows knowledge about the subject being discussed on the part of the poster, and stands a good chance of helping others with their quest for knowledge.

    The other 299,300,000 people can have it.

    Noone has a more intimate understanding of, or deeper appreciation for freedom, than a soldier who has fought for it in a country where it does not exist.

    I Rep cause I can!!! Mostly comical retorts and when someone shows a sign of understanding a topic and posts so. That is... between cocktails, I hope you understand!!! Cocktails come first, sorry... just the way it is!!!! As if you couldn't tell from my previous posts!!! LOL
    If a dipnetter dips a fish and there is no one around to see/hear it, Did he really dip?

    Sounds like somebody needs a nice new knife. Here is one:


    This is identical to the Havalon knife I use, except I chose hunter orange for the handle in the hopes that it would not get lost mid field dress as often as I seem to lose knifes doing that.

    Hang onto it for me ! I'll pick it up the next time I'm in the neighborhood. Just not sure when that'll be. AND, I'll try not to loose it, LOL .

    Rep is for funny replies to silly questions or after hunt fish report with kids. Best when someone zings me with really good reply
