the moderaters have a tough job.. I know I would not want to do it.. I agree with seal to the degree that I try hard not to pass judgement on someone, that I have not looked them in the eye. Got to meet them, shake their hand. got to know them, or meet their familys.. even better yet, go out on a few hunts with them.. that is the true barometer, that I have found on how a man handles himself on a hunt.. that is how I can tell what a person is all about... to try and judge someone strictly off the internet is not my style. during the time I have been on this forum I have met a handful of members personally. even gone so far as meeting up with them for some bird hunts.. I can vouch for them, I can safely say that I had a good time. Met some really outstanding and experienced members.. Made me into a better waterfowler, in so much as I volunteered for some fish and game maintenance projects.. I was so inspired by the people I met on this forum. But lately, like some of you have noticed, I do not feel inspired nor do I feel like I want to participate. I do not have the desire to leave this forum. I do enjoy some of (meatier) topics. I can chose to come here to this site or not.. and to care about it, or not.. But, I do come here and I do care, waterfowling has been a big part of my life.. I miss it, in the off season.... as for the all that bickering about who said what, and who has a pair or not. I say don't sweat it.. If your that bent out of shape about it, then you need to get out more often. get out of the computer chair, and throw a stick for your dog, or hug your kid, shoot some clay pigeons, whatever you need to do, go do it.. life is too short to pick fights on the internet..
