Get the fuck over yourselves. This place ain’t exactly hopping, who the fuck are you to further limit what’s posted here with your BS?Not quite sure where all this girly whining comes from, perchance you've "contributed" to the wrong thread; we would have expected an entry in the other one (viewforum.php?f=7) where we could all accept it with the full blown irony and sarcasm this place celebrates (or does it really???). Or do people such as COL, caped Crispy thumbring-man, or slayerfish (and all the rest of the un-usual suspects who you've sanctioned) have the REAL measure of this place? Hmmmm?
Thanks to your “we are the cool kids, do as we say” in a group of what, 10 regular posters, I basically live in the FCTP thread. You two can’t even post a pic a week.
Not sure when/where Shonny or myself have ever limited what is posted (is this place really THAT tough, really THAT free and Libertarian?). We ain't no Jed.
But I get that you live in the thrall of your own particular kind of totalitarianism, and suffer the rest of us because it seems always to be a moving target, il-defined, and befitting the gas-lighting of a narcissism you misrepresented but personify very well. However one choses to describe "community" it comes with both "obligations" and "rights" (for those who have passed muster). It seems most here accept that this place, when great and generous, is a true fraternity; but at times nothing more than a sandbox of petulant, emotionally challenged prigs. It's without a doubt the best of an odious lot. We suck it up and deal with the sparring that comes from differing (and divergent) opinions in a healthy community...an argumentation that challenges the very notion of what "community" can be, free from the threat of sanction. Perhaps this is not the place some of the more bellicose make it out to be...
There are many here with whom I've had disagreements, but they are, at their core, salt of the earth guys who, I would trust with my life. (I remember a particularly fecund exchange between Seth and Sully; they still fish together.) Others...well, I'm left in wonderment (after I watch and listen for a spell) who ties your shoe laces for you.
You malign the Austrian for making a justice argument because of an unwarranted personal attack...but I get why you're so annoyed...
Guess "community" means we eat our own here,

This has nothing to do with Bill. Truth is there are several people who feel this way.
I haven’t liked THEcc since I spent two weeks dodging phone calls and emails from fish and game about a box of “salmon lures” full of illegal materials he sent to my address without telling me.
But I’m sure you know that since I didn’t give him my addy and it was your box of flies. All I can say is it was shithouse luck that they never opened it because importing that stuff carries serious fines and possible jail time. At the very least I wouldn’t be able to fish for a while.
But hey, at least I got to spend $65 to send it on to Australia since it arrived after you left.
I am sure that neither of us lose any sleep over the "several people who feel this way" (the brave who pile on), we know them and don't care Matt.
And here's the rub, apropos of the above claim and the fly debacle: don't apologize for your deceit and lying, it was my mistake to have trusted you, and sad to have recognized none of us here were worthy of the truth. Sorry to say that you have demeaned yourself Matt.
Though we are all entitled to be stupid every so often, you seem to have abused the privilege...
