i think calling it out 1-1, gently and respectively, with a little rational explanation, has a meaningful real world impact. i know of at least 3 regular posters who really fish a lot on here who initially gave info in their reports which exposed sensitive streams, but when i (and/or others) pm'd them it made total sense to them and they welcomed the input. they fish and report a lot in season but don't hotspot and i think the credit goes to discreet, friendly input from people who love the resource as they do.
i think you get a little different result when someone is already looking for a fight and trying to provoke someone to throw the first punch. mr. goddamnit felt like one of those to me.
i feel like a broken record here, but i dont really care what you think of my tact and i dont plan on changing. you do you, ill do me.
