    :rofl::rofl::rofl: That's hilarious. Are those the real coordinates, or just made up?:rofl::rofl:

    Another problem with the board; people seem to wait, and even anticipate the moment, for any opportunity to jump down someone's throat. Even for a joke.:beathead:

    It seems like a regular deal for guys to request specifics with the excuse that their wife and family obligations don't allow them time to do the legwork. I've wondered if it would be ok to offer info in exchange for a night with their wife. The wife keeps them from learning a fishery, and fishing keeps me from having a wife.

    Whether "Tim" did, or "Tim" did not, wasn't what I was aiming at. I was just using an example that you provided of what could be considered something that is annoying about the forum. It just was an opportunity to show how a lot of discussions go south fast. You do have to admit that folks are quick to jump on people here for absolutely nothing, even if you were not jumping on him. There was no attack towards you intended whatsoever.

    Another example could be Allison's blatant and typical feminist comment/insult about that it is "males measuring" that is part of the problem. Though, I've read a few of the post by females and they too seem extremely quick to bring out the ruler.:rolleyes:

    It's like I first said, this is a thread bitching and whining about bitching and whining, and it was also started with an ignorantly said sexist insult towards males. She then tries to defuse any comment on her insult by saying, “I'd imagine this will inspire more flaming than actual useful discourse, but hey, some is better then none I guess. Try not to blame the messenger.” She even makes a lousy attempt at portraying herself as an “innocent messenger”.

    In my opinion, ignorantly spoken/typed insults like what she spewed out are another large problem on the forum.

    My 2 cents plus tax.

    I believe that this thread is going away from what is was at the begining. Now some are into name calling. When does this all end?????????????

    It doesn't end. For some it is a fishing forum. For others it's a stage.

    iagree My own post is also part of the problem. Some of us (myself included) feel obliged to correct stupidity instead of just ignoring it and letting it die out (the most effective way I think). That is an issue with self control I suppose. I apologize for letting this thread to continue.:D

    Welcome to the real world.

    It was the same way in school. Same way at work. Same way everywhere.

    Grow a pair bro! It isn't a big deal.

    only if there's no blatant "feminist" measuring of what gets grown.... that would be tssso offensive.

    i swear, it's either chest pumping bs or getting offended over the littlest crap here.... i don't understand how people can watch "jon and kate plus 8" but there's not much difference reading this forum:rofl:

    I switched to this site because helping chicks pick out underwear on the Lingerie message boards had become tedious, what with the cyclical repetitive questions and such..
