This thread ought to have a sticky, at least for a while.
I enjoy the fact that this site is a place to get away from politics and other bothersome parts of life. In that way it is like flyfishing.
Sometimes I'd rather not know someones politics. That way I can keep from wanting to throat punch them. It makes me a happier person.
The last two paragraphs of his post explain why.
You're just in a good mood cause of those SOX!
We already have a NFR here. We use it to talk about Non Fishing related subjects. But not politics. There is no place for politics here.
Right on Old Man.
Hah! What a lazy dumb-ass I am. Teach me to RTFP all the way through.
you'll probably be OK
I was a fairly new Mod back then. That forum was a friggin nightmare! Chris is spot on. It caused nothing but hard feelings, and those who were fighting in the NFR forum came onto the main forum and brought it with them. People don't seem to realize how much work it causes us (since we're all volunteers) when these threads come up. The amount of reports and complaints is staggering.
Thanks Chris. You forced me to LIKE your post. If members don't come here for the fly fishing chatter, seeking conflict through political discussions, they are in the wrong place to start with. There are countless political machine sites. There is only ONE Washington Fly Fishing.
That's the part that surprises me. I can't fathom being such a wussy I would need to tattle to a mod.
Unfortunately, unless you're a mod you can't see our report box. But on the type of threads in question, I'm sure the other mods will back this, the amount of whiny reports we get are staggering. Usually by the person who created the mess.
