I hope this is alright to post, but I have not seen anything from Mr. Collechio since December. Did I miss something? Is he OK?

    I'm with Westwall!

    He was removed from his Moderator duties and then he took his ball and went home.

    I know the guy has fought for my fishing rights. Not sure what happened lately, but in reality its a loss for this site, without confrontation its not a real community.

    Several "leftover lefties" still post and some do their best to sneak in political comments. More of a hit and run type attack than true arguments anymore.

    I think people took him a little too personal. I think he enjoyed the jousting and trying to push people's buttons...maybe more than he should have. Or maybe he was just trying to be a ---- on purpose. Like a Tootsie Pop, the world may never know.

    It was weird in the end it looked to me like a few posters went to politics with an agenda to get it shut down. Those same guys hardly post here anymore, yet are openly glad politics is gone. Who knows maybe 1/2 the people who post on FS use multiple alter ego screen names . :huh
  • toomertoomer Posts: 316 Deckhand
    To me, a Con Forum outsider who "knows his place" in much of this ongoing debate, I found many of his posts useful. He may indeed be an jazz, but he referenced much material and linked to many good sources of info. Yes, his tone was abrasive. But he got as good as he gave.

    I really liked how he pushed folks to reveal their true identities, and those who never would always left me wondering about who or what they represent.

    Anyway, the site is much less interesting to me without his posts.

    So "Toomer" is what is on your birth certificate?....:)

    Some people were real "AH's" about wanting to know all sorts of information about people whom they disagreed with here...."What's your name and address" was about as stupid as stupid could be....and if someone answered these "AH's"....they would be stupider than stupid....

    Glad he's gone....
    On Wednesday, 1/25/2017...Florida Sportsman "Big Kahunna"......"Triple Threat 33T" gave his "official word"...and greasy thumb print...by saying....."Here's your written rules Schmidty, No Politics in OT. You're welcome."

    ...and with that history was made...:)
  • toomertoomer Posts: 316 Deckhand
    You don't have to give your name to make known your affiliations, and since many of these threads are so agenda driven it is only right to reveal any official capacity you may serve in, if you have any. Most seem to do just that, but Gary pushed a couple of the more knowledgable and issue oriented posters to fess up, and in the interest of transparency I felt that was correct.

    My personal belief is that if all the Yankees got kicked out..... the entire state would pop up about 25 feet! :)

    ....but that would ruin a whole bunch of "beaching" for many in the state....:)

    Hahahahaha....

    And when a person would come here ....and say something that your buddy didn't agree with...they would immediately get days...sometimes weeks ...if not months of ..."who are you?..."what's your other names"?...."how many times have you been banned?..."what your real name"?...."where do you live"..."what's the name of your boat"?....and so on....and then his barbie knee pad wearing clown friend would join in and berate those who were not in the fan club...

    I was happy just lurking here for years...until your boy and all the suck-ups went after a guy so bad that I registered and told them what I thought of them....so they turned on me....hahahahaahaha...:)

    A bigger pack of candy azzes I never saw...:)

    Well maybe not "the" but "a" problem, yes I agree.
    He was a wealth of knowledge...at times.
    I've met him at Fisherman rallies and gatherings, had lunch with him, a personable guy
    But something changed over the years. Don't know what it was, perhaps aging. I can only speculate

    But his change was gradual.


    He may be back. Perhaps his current outlook on life and other matters will give him a different view on things, and he'll come back and speak and provide valuable information on matters he actually knows about.

    (Current moderators that are FofG please don't take this an assualt or bashing of Gary, just an observation)
    I have a much bigger and more powerful button
  • ANUMBER1ANUMBER1 Posts: 8,407 Admiral
    I got along fine with Gary, we disagreed on policy at times but it never got personal.

    He and I have a good understanding of how fishery management and politics work, most of the rest of y'all just wear tin hats.:grin




    I said "most"
    I am glad to only be a bird hunter with bird dogs...being a shooter or dog handler or whatever other niche exists to separate appears to generate far too much about which to worry.
  • toomertoomer Posts: 316 Deckhand
    I don't see how any of you could think of him as a "problem". It's a forum for goodness sakes, not a hot tub.
  • Ron@.38 SpecialRon@.38 Special Posts: 6,748 Admiral
    Gary has unique knowledge of issues especially related to Everglades Restoration.

    His absence is another sign of problems with this forum.

    LOL

    I particularly liked the way he tried very hard not to insult/attact people and break the forum rules. He was about 50/50 in that respect. Pun intended.
