I agree with you. There have been times I could not make reports on line due to one imperfection or another. Sometimes it was from my home Main frame computer.Of course I would be OK with that, and pay attention here as I did not say I opposed reporting online, only MANDATORY reporting, there is a difference.
FYI, currently you can get a permit at F&G or online... just what is your point?
On line reporting of any kind should never be mandatory any where for anything until the unline method was as dependable as snail mail or the land line phone. Threats against your future us of the resource because of failure to report on a less than perfect platform is totally out of line. In fact, it kind of makes a joke of the whole process.
