    Hope this helps entertain you and/or give you nightmares that wake you up at 3am. It'll at least get you on the water in time for the legal shooting hours:

    Because 90% of the members with a pair of "Gonads" have either been BANNED, or decided they would be happier posting where Brian M. is not the divinity. (This should get me some red "Bad'Dog, very bad'Dog" INFRACTION thingies). What the "HILL" I might as well go out in flames.

    The bottom line is this is NOT your forum, and it is NOT my forum. There'fore "OUR" vote does not matter. It will be run the way they want, even if there is no interesting Content here.

    It may also seem that most of the posts have no real merit other than to chat or make small talk. Lots of information used to be available here. Now, not so much. People have clammed up due to an incident a while back that wasn't handled in a manner that several long term members could live with.

    And some that didn't Clam Up got their membership cancelled.

    People don't want to introduce stalkers into their lives. The type of folks who send things to members' and non-members' houses without warrant.

    The shetstick around here drove off several of the members. Don't worry, he smooches Strahan's arse and lies his arse off.

    That particular member counts toward at least 3 regular members who no longer post.

    I received some unsolicited correspondence in the mail once and it freaked me out. Is the usual suspect at it again?

    Would someone care to tell me what's going on? As you can see, the rep meter says I'm a glorious beacon of light, so it should be safe to fill me in.

    Also, as I approach 600 career posts, I believe someone needs to tell me what happened to my steak knife set that was supposed to arrive in the mail after 500.

    Divinity, huh? I had no idea.

    You're going to have to try harder than that to get an infraction. While we don't allow personal attacks, I figure with my role I can take some heat.

    I explained this in another thread today, but we have banned very few members over the years, and in every case they were given many chances to stay if they were simply willing to abide by the forum rules that they agreed to when they signed up. We have stated rules, they're clear, and it's not unreasonable that we enforce them. Even now members who may have been banned in the past are welcome to come back if they will abide by our simple expectations. 90%? Come on, man... I know you're a fan of hyperbole, but that's quite a stretch...even if you consider "having gonads" to mean breaking the rules you agree to over and over again.

    I think its because few belong to Ducks Unlimited and never joined the boy scouts when young.

    The lack of sportsmanship, knowledge of the "sport" (notice I did not say "eating" or trophies, but SPORT) and concern for the ducks is just amazing!

    I don't know that a bunch of people who pay for a membership in an organization to attend a banquet and maybe win something, or the lack of people joining is what leads to the decline in knowledge or respect for a sport. But by following threads on here the concern is great when the resource is not available and becomes less when the birds,fish, insert whatever you may like arrives. The few "area clean up" threads that appear from time to time are refreshing though, and I hope to see some in the future to participate in.
