I said previously to your above tirade;
"Tarponator - whatever. You just can't get some people to comprehend the difference between affiliating with an extreme anti-fishing group, as a non-profit, their refusal to disclose their relationship, AND HOW THAT COULD AFFECT ALL OF OUR FISHING FUTURES. I have already explained my self-interest in this matter - I am an American recreational fisherman and a father of 3 kids who I want to be able to go fish without having to pay people like Brettfitz and his enviro partners.
I'm done wasting my time trying to get to you to understand."
If you think that is demeaning you and calling you names, then I am truly sorry. Accusing me of wanting to take my ball and comparing me to a six year old is, well, demeaning me and calling me names. Your buddy Brettfitz called me a keyboard cowboy yet you don't call him out on it.
Get ready...you are a HYPOCRITE in every sense of the word Tarponator.
My company is a private corporation and as such, I have no responsibility or obligation to answer ANY of your arcane questions - it's really none of your business, and I would be subjugating my fiscal reponsibilities to my partner(s) in said corporation if I did so.
You should try to keep on topic, as the purpose of this thread (again) is about a new, improved data system. Entities with a proven track record of working AGAINST recreational fishing interests are providing funding for that new system. Questions regarding those entites' involvement are valid, to-the-point questions regarding said data system.
We ALL have a vested interest in the fisheries tarponator - how I make my living in no way undermines my rights as an American to expose the corruption and greed that has taken over our fisheries management process, yet I already know you will never be able to comprehend that fact, and I'm ok with it.
I have some more information coming out regarding the funding for this new angleraction.org data system, and it ain't pretty.
