I only post if I have something to actually contribute to the subject myself

You should post a pictorial on the how's and why's.

I joined Off Topics. I have thick skin, but grew tired of it, it's now blocked. 

I will post pics of my animals hunted or fish caught. I am proud of them all, even my button buck was posted. Tasted great  :drool:

I have grown tired of the internet police and nit pickers as well.

I still read most days, just cut down my comments.   :twocents:

Still enjoy Hunt WA.  :hello:

I think we should only be able to post pics, links, meme, and emoji's.  Then no ones feelings would get hurt with mean words.  It could become a new progressive hunting site.  We could even have in our profiles what pronoun we would like to be identified with.  And everyday for just logging in you would receive a sticker that said "good job".  Or better yet we could choose the sticker we get because "good job" might offend some people.  Hurtful words.  I hate them.

I've been on here a long time, not as long as some, I don't enjoy the forum as much as use to one reason is because only half of the threads posted on here pertain to hunting or other outdoor activities. Another reason is as someone else mentioned in another thread that there's some guys on here that are super "know it all's" and can't get past their own arrogance to just enjoy others posts and say good job instead of constantly critiquing.

That said I still come on here and post from time to time.

Drama queens...I don't do facebook because of the drama. Came hear a few years ago and all was good. Now it seems everything is drama. A lot of topics that create hate and division amongst the hunt/fish community. And a small hand full of people that are responsible. I have very thick skin but don't need drama in my life.

Thank you all for answering and for your honesty.  Keep it up please.   There are 300 or so folks looking at the forum right now.  Please provide your input even if it's the same as someone else. 

I have another question for you to think a about. If we were to fix or change would you post more or just prefer to keep quiet ad it's a waste of our time.

 :chuckle: I'm not one of you fancy-pants, gourmet-food eating, European car driving mods so until I'm given an exorbitant salary I'll save the time and effort.

I will give a hint, I came here and joined because I was getting tired of all the bashing because a few people were blaming every single tribal person and lumping us all together rather than singling out the bad apples.

There has been little change, but not much and at times it's not worth the argument. I have gotten tired of repeating myself, tired of having the same argument, tired of being the blame, the one people point fingers and blame as if I had the power to change laws.

I've taken extended breaks and the time of the year is coming when all the bashing comes back and who knows if I continue here.

Thick skin, is an understatment for me so someday things will get better and I can say that I have met some awesome guys on here, guys i can call friend and brother. :tup:

I post pics all the time. I post and then wait/expect someone to nitpick something. I hate that it happens, but it's a fact of life.

Nitpicking is one of the issues I want to deal with soon!
