No.

As to my late fishing report...

Am I working on a deadline?

Come on, man.

Time to grow up.

The beetle character Is a stupid tired out joke.

Ok?

I really have no interest in fighting the same battles over and over again with the same people who just won't let it go,

Truth is this.

The beetle character is a small minded simpleton who says things like "your flies suck" and "you catch a hell of a lot ... Of dinks!"

That's the joke.

Seems simple to me but legions of idiots can't handle being told their flies are lousy, or that they catch dinks.

It was the same joke.

Over.

And over.

I'm done with it.

Now, I ain't gonna fight again...

But shit.

Expect a whole lot of flak directed at beetle.

From bad fly tyers.

And subpar fishermen.

Who take themselves way too seriously.

And...

Just wondering...

Do you actually have a drift boat?
We had a guy here that took care about people like you, sorry to say that he aint around
anymore. But you kind of disgrace his memory, so please man just fuck of or die in a fire.
I get enough of this third person shite at work.

P-A,

Thank you, good sir, for keeping the "flame" alive.

Cheers,

Well at least the beetle makes it interesting. It's a good change from all the man loving that goes on here for being a trout douche.

Yet another pseudo. Buddy ain't going nowhere.
He's like dog shit on a shoe, you can't shake him.

From 13 tips to deal with a sociopath.
I know it's long but he can't help but to read it because it's about him.
Don't even respond to this post, let it die.

"Do not join the game.
Intrigue is a sociopath's tool. Resist the temptation to compete with a seductive sociopath, to outsmart him, psychoanalyze, or even banter with him. In addition to reducing yourself to his level, you would be distracting yourself from what is really important, which is to protect yourself.

The best way to protect yourself from a sociopath is to avoid him, to refuse any kind of contact or communication.
Psychologists do not usually like to recommend avoidance, but in this case, I make a very deliberate exception. The only truly effective method for dealing with a sociopath you have identified is to disallow him or her from your life altogether. Sociopaths live completely outside of the social contract, and therefore to include them in relationships or other social arrangements is perilous. Begin this exclusion of them in the context of your own relationships and social life. You will not hurt anyone's feelings. Strange as it seems, and though they may try to pretend otherwise, sociopaths do not have any such feelings to hurt.
You may never be able to make your family and friends understand why you are avoiding a particular individual. Sociopathy is surprisingly difficult to see, and harder to explain. Avoid hi/her anyway.

If total avoidance is impossible, make plans to come as close as you can to the goal of total avoidance.

Question your tendency to pity too easily.
Respect should be reserved for the kind and the morally courageous. Pity is another socially valuable response, and should be reserved for innocent people who are in genuine pain or who have fallen on misfortune. If, instead, you find yourself often pitying someone who consistently hurts you or other people, and who actively campaigns for your sympathy, the chances are close to one hundred percent that you are dealing with a sociopath.

Related to this -- I recommend that you severely challenge your need to be polite in absolutely all situations. For normal adults in our culture, being what we think of as "civilized" is like a reflex, and often we find ourselves being automatically decorous even when someone has enraged us, repeatedly lied to us, or figuratively stabbed us in the back. Sociopaths take huge advantage of this automatic courtesy in exploitive situations.

Do not be afraid to be unsmiling and calmly to the point.

Do not try to redeem the unredeemable.
Second (third, fourth, and fifth) chances are for people who possess conscience. If you are dealing with a person who has no conscience, know how to swallow hard and cut your losses.

At some point, most of us need to learn the important if disappointing life lesson that, no matter how good our intentions, we cannot control the behavior-- let alone the character structures-- of other people. Learn this fact of human life, and avoid the irony of getting caught up in the same ambition he has-- to control.

If you do not desire control, but instead want to help people, then help only those who truly want to be helped. I think you will find this does not includeDo not join the game.
