ok i put this here because this is a topic that is for the people here that contribute the most.

what is with these new people that are straight out attacking members here? I myself had one pm me saying he saw me fishing from across the river and called me a snagger even though i was catching nothing while everyone else was.

I dont know about the rest of you but its getting like we need a babysitter around here because the mods just cant keep up with it all, there is just too much. I mean would you appreciate having someone say that to you when you short float or fly fish only?

he also called everyone else i have ever fished with snaggers as we all stick together ya know :-\ well actually he basically made it sound like all of us here are snaggers/flossers and that we post pictures of our snagged fish proud of how we caught it. he did name one member as a good rod which i wont name here but i have personnally fished with him numerous times.

its just starting to get very tiring reading most posts/comments and i understand why alot of people dont post pictures especially as you wouldnt want to have someone rag on you for getting a nice fish. Im sure there is more of you here that feel this way also.

very disheartened

P.S. i love this site however im not sure how much i can take before i stop participating

Hook I feel you man. Same thing happened to me not so long ago. Don't know what to say, except that if you stop participating, then their tactics, which really only amounts to nothing, have won. Just keep doing what you are doing, try to ingnore it which is tough sometimes. I am not able to ignore it all the time, but still working on it. There will always be people out there that have to do this for whatever reason. I think the Mods have done the best job they can considering the amount of slagging that has been going on. Don't let it get to you to much. :thumbup:

I think it is just a bunch of sh%t disturbing trolls who get their jollies seeing how many people they can irk. Remember, don't answer them and they go away because they're not getting any attention.

Report such pm's to the mods, insert direct quotes if you can, let us know. It helps immensely if you guys point out these kind of things as they are happening....

Rick, you wanna add anything to that...?

its not really that it gets me down it jsut chaps my a** that people feel obligated to say sh** over the computer but dont have the bones to do it in person. if i see someone doing something that i really dont like then i say something to them. i have even shoved people in the river (not deep) or kicked them for kicking fish. I mean im not a big guy but i act like one for the most part LOL

its just starting to be more Bitter/Sweet then anything around here dont you agree?

oh and i forgot the part where he called everyone that fishes a spey rod snags a good 95% of their fish. still dont see how thats possible with a 4' leader unless your using a type12 tip in 5feet of water LOL i know my heaviest tip is a type8 even on my single hander.

P.S. Rib i would have sent it to one if not all the mods however i deleted it as i didnt want to end up reading it twice.

Like I said, report such pm's to the mods. Some members who specifically want to cause trouble do so in various places to avoid being obvious. They may have pushed things already on the site, or with other members. By letting us know what you witness as a long time member of the site you allow us more information with which to help us keep the standards of BCFR as high as they've always been. Lately we have been working to resolve this very thing and all input is appreciated.

:cheers:

In the last couple of days, there has been quite a rash of these problems under at least 5 different names, but all coming from the same IP address. They have been dealt with(and will continue to be.) When you see this kind of behaviour, shoot off a PM. The faster this element gets dealt with, the less likely he is to try again.

Of course they can't, they're out fishing like we all should be doing! :beerchug:

There has been a lot of new members lately and a lot will go as salmon season dies. The ones that remain will most likely be keepers I suspect so it would be worthwhile "bringing them along."

Don't let any of that crap get to you. Nobody knows what they're talking about unless they personally know you, which 99% of the people on this board do not. Just words spat out by people behind a computer screen. Perfect example, these guys are just here to make you angry.

Guy sees you fishing, and waits til the internet can protect him. Don't worry about it, move on and fish.

I know what you are talking about Hook, though I have not recieved any PMs from any members that are like that I have noticed the general onslaught of mindles meat jockies on the site. Best we can do is report anything to the mods and let them take the apropriate actions. As for your guy calling you a snagger, I would lay down money that he was fishing with a 3 oz betty, 6ft of leader and the all powerfull "green wool" lure ;)

I think there are guys on here that just like to stir it up! Like those guys the other day that got the boot - pronto! (The mods did a great job there!) Probably just young kids! As long as YOU know you are not a snagger - who cares - tell them where to go and keep on fishin ;) :beerchug: But definitely do not let someone like that deter you from posting

Well I couldn't agree with you all more. what we have to understand is look at the forum say last year this time, there were maybe thirty or fourty of us who were consistantly on posting and you got to know the attitudes of the people you were chatting to, though I have'nt gotten to meet many of you, which I'm planning on changing yet this year. This year it has exploded, there are constantly new faces popping up, and for the most part many are like minded, ethical sports fishers. If you open the barn doors the shit will eventually flow in. I shared your sediments Hook on this, but why let a few idiots destroy something I have enjoyed being part of for the last few years was my thought.. To the MODS hats off to you, you've been busy and have been doing a hell of a job keeping the forum a quality forum to belong to. :beerchug:
Cheers,
Crazy D

You just said it there yourself. You know that what people say isn't the truth, so don't let it "chap your a$$" lol.

I don't know man, take a look at all the usernames when you look in the members section. I know most are gone but just an example, and deliberate exaggeration. Anyways my point was most of the guys calling people snaggers don't know the people. It's just a term used to pi$$ you off, so don't worry about it.

I noticed that it all started when that "sharp hooks " link was posted here. I thinl alot of those guys were just kids messing around. I saw that a few of them participating in the BS, post over here regularily. It was quite obvious they were just here to cause trouble. As well I've noticed a few veteren members stirring the pot unethically too. We should treat everyone over here with the gentleman like conduct that we take to the river. I mean that whole B-day thread was a load of manuer and I felt for CK. Over the line by a few members. OK so that one got to me a little but usually try to be somewhat diplomatic but am always ready to go to bat for guys who I feel are wrongly treated. Of course in a good way.

Mods keep up the good work! I know it's hard.
