Orvis sidebar ad

All threads that bitch about new, existing, or old members will be posted/relocated here. Keep this shit off the General forum, because no one wants (or cares) to hear your opinions. Now go back to the other forums and post something worthy of reading.

Orvis sidebar ad

Post by Outcast » Fri Jul 04, 2008 10:43 pm

I have a bit of Orvis gear that I'm happy with. In fact I've got a Helios ordered that should be here next week. Kudos to the Drake for making money, it's what capitalism is all about.

The Orvis ad on the right side of every page has got to go away. Find someplace else to place it like at the bottom of every page. The sidebar sucks ass. It looks a bit like the flybox of the poster whose name will remain unspoken that was posted a few days ago.
Outcast's initial response to you is just the sort of mean, immediate, unnecessary, gatekeeper-bullshit newbie-bashing that I've come to hate on my own board. But then, somehow, miraculously, in only six posts, you managed to earn it. -nemo

I'm with toiletduck on this one.

I'm waiting for a box to pop up telling me I'm the 1000000th dickhead to grace this wankfest and I've won a new rod.

I agreeeeeeeeeeee1 The fuckin side bar sucks! Put it on the bottom of the page. Doesn't matter who's advertising...........

Nope, not gonna happen. Been there, done that.

What? It is the "bitching room" isn't it? Just trying to do my part.

Would someone please send RFA a fucking fly rod? He's got a case of wahwahs over the 150,000th post thing and only winning a fly line. I think the dude may cut his wrists if he dosen't get a rod. Maybe a Helios or a S4 to match the shitty sidebars that have just appeared.

I feel he is justified in his bitterness. The prize that was originally proposed was a yacht. I'd have been homicidal if I'd gotten 150000 expecting a yacht and ending up with a fly line donated out of pity.

A yacht? No shit? I'd heard that it was a 10k sq ft trophy home above Crested Butte with a cute Nicaraguan whore thrown in for good measure.
I've already got two of those fuckin' things, what would I do with a third? But I'd have played hard for a yacht. I think we were fucked.
I believe in rules. Sure I do. If there weren't any rules, how could you break them?

I offered to send him a rod as my heart is heavy too. He rejected.

Is the tying section more fucked up than the other sections . Or is it just my whip ?
