    The mods left it there just to trigger you, Battery. :p

    Mission accomplished.  :#

    Have a nice weekend.

    lol.. your definition of triggered is suspect as most things you say. Its pretty simple.... if the point of closing the forum so that new comers weren't scared or because it didn't represent the principles of the main forum then it has failed. I am sure they dont want to delete the forum because of the post count. At one point it was 1/3 of the total place.
    Wait, wouldn't that be misleading to advertisers whose ad rate is based on traffic?
    Advertisers pay for clicks, and most of the eyeballs and clicks generated by this site are from lurkers who never even register. They come here to learn about fishing, not your political opining. and from what we here, that opining drove more people away than attracted them.
    The only reason that the dear departed Politics section is still visible is the incompetence of the site management.

      I think the forum is doing very well because of all the traffic created by all the posts about the politics forum being gone.

    Mr. Admin, why is the thread in the NE section still up and why hasn't Morocco Madness been banned for a "IN YOUR FACE" political post?

    You've banned many of us for less!
    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.

    I wonder how many of the views are search bots, that of they don't like what they see and fail to register

    Search boys don't count as traffic as their user-agent value is filtered out.

    He hasn't been banned because he knows bill dance, writes for fishing publications and has fished and hunted more than all of us combined.

    That is the most blatant favoritism I've seen here by moderators.
    Many posts, political as hell, inflammatory, derogatory, confrontational..&c.

    Who is this clown? I can know Bill Dance if you give me a month.  2* connection, could work it if it will give me free reign here with a phone call or two.

    Do I need to eat at his house or just converse with him?

    I got warned for simply typing the word "Trump."

    What in the actual ****, mods?

    Gotta talk to the NE moderator. Or ask Rich, he's the Regional Admin.

    Well.  
    I'm going to try out the "my cousin knows Bill Dance" on Ferris next time I get a warning.

    He’s an old poster that changed his name slightly. Strange enough.
       Bikini says he’s a massive snowflake, but he’s always signed his posts that he’s actually dead meat.
