Mine is obviously bass fishing and I would gather from this site that the majority is in the same boat (no pun intended). I joined this forum to give/receive information about bass fishing. But it seems to me that there a people here that don't use this site for the same purposes. In my brief 92 post history, some of my opinions have been met with ridicule. I understand that others don't have to subscribe to my opinions and I expect that but, I don't understand how people can ridicule another for their opinion. In a recent post I asked an honest question. Thinking that I was part of an information sharing site, I hoped that there would be some feedback. I did not expect to get roasted for asking a question and accused of spreading rumors. So, my post was locked and is now inactive.

 

I am sure this post will get taken down without haste but I like many others have an opinion and somebody, even if it is only 1 person is going to read it. I will be removing myself from the forum. To the few that I have interacted with, thank you for your opinions and I hope any information I gave helped you in your endeavors. To the others that can not accept the opinions of others and feel it necessary to berate others because those opinions do match their own.... shame on you. you have lost sight of what a forum like this is supposed to be. To the moderators that censor this forum.... there is a big difference in a legitimate question and spreading rumors.

 

I honestly did not think I would encounter this kind of activity here. good day bass resource

:rolleyes: Everyone takes things so personal these days.  Got to be like water off a ducks back.  You'll lead a much less stressful life not caring what other people, especially those on the internet, think about you.  You do you bro, but hopefully you dont leave.

I've butted heads with a few people on here ... It's what guys do ? Honestly there isn't one person on here that I would say I "hate" or strongly dislike... 

 

Lighten up bud... You don't have to leave ? Just focus elsewhere !!! Keep doing what brought you to the site.

Right now your upset,you will get over it.If  I wrote that post and used your name instead of B.D.you would be offended, no? I'm sure some on here think I'm a moron, that's ok. Years ago my drill instructor said "You always have your ten percent".

Now  put on your big boy pants and get back in the game.

Can't let stuff like that get to you.  Not everyone is going to get along or like what the other says.  Say your piece and move on.  I've wondered why some threads get locked down but I certainly don't lose sleep over it.  There's still tons of good info/conversation to be had at BR.

I had not seen the Bill Dance post until just now. It is offensive...nuff said.

One of the Moderators top priority is maintaining respectful disagreement,

but in this case the topic was totally out of bounds.

 

You are welcome to stay and continue to be a contributor, but this case is closed.

It's your choice.
