When logging on to OT, what is your focus?  Is it to have fun, is it to learn and teach on interesting subjects?
Is it to show people the error of their thoughts?

I’m here to have fun, learn some new and exciting facts from people with different hobbies, viewpoints. I will readily admit I enjoy poking the giant from time to time. 

You?

    This is the forum I come to an awful lot lately it seems. Honestly not much going on at most of the other ones lately. Gotta admit I never even clicked on this forum for first 6 months probably when I first signed up but enjoy it. Although it's also a forum I tend to get lost pretty quick on certain threads, assuming it just shows I'm not quite as intelligent as some on here. Either that or j just cant keep up🤔

    This is extra I just noticed this new emoji... cant be serious!😷

    Aside from the obvious, I have learned at lot from this forum.

    When I lived in the keys it really helped my up my fishing and boating game.

    I originally came to obtain information on specific issues; home repair, boat stuff, social discussions, sports, and some eclectic and humorous posting. Once in a great while I poke a “bully” just to stay in verbal jousting shape. B)

    Don't overthink it it's just an off topic Fishing Forum. And although a small one it is a good one.

    Oh wait, wrong forum.
    THERE SHOULD BE NO COMMERCIAL FISHING ALLOWED FOR ANY SPECIES THAT IS CONSIDERED OVERFISHED.

    I used to come for fishing info. Now I open up general, freshwater, paddle and west central and I'm lucky if after a week I find one topic worth opening.

    To laugh at people who think they are smarter than they really are.  Like a relocation specialist who thinks he is a medical doctor and a Ph.D scientist topped off with an MBA from the Harvard Business School.

    I never stop laughing at people who think Wikipedia and Google Chrome make them experts.

    If someone is an expert you laugh at them anyway, so what;s your point?

     No priors,  well,  hold on,  underage drinking,  catching fresh water trout out of season.  Lifting Mary Beth Taylors uniform up in 5th grade....maybe not,  the nun broke a yard stick over my shoulder.

    It's interesting that you cannot answer a simple question about common interests without attacking other participants who aren't even on the thread.

    A whole paragraph and he only insulted 2 people.....I could have got at least 5.

    I come here to shoot the breeze, sometimes serious, sometimes not.
    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.

    Yep, it is called having fun.  I also like how sensitive people are and how seriously people take things.  Moral of the story, I come here to laugh.

    But they are doctors.  I was told we should listen to experts.  

    Joking aside, I didn't even watch the video.  I was bored and was curious how people would respond.  My posting habits tend to change when I'm stuck on conference calls for hours.

    OT seems to be a reincarnation of the Politics section. Many times I think it was a bad mistake to dump Politics.

    Can't I just Google the information and be an expert in 30 seconds?
