Say, Jim?

Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

Not trying to start a bru-ha-ha, but I'm quite sure I posted in a thread about the recent spate of police-involved shootings, (both by and at police), and now that thread is MIA.
Care to share the reasoning behind thier disappearance?

(I was quite interested in seeing input from other regions.)

Wouldn't presume to speak for Jim but this is an extremely sensitive and explosive subject that inevitable would devolve into politics. Jim is doing a really good job on this site keeping things friendly and on topic (ultimately about boats/fishing/etc). This is no small thing. I have been a member of a news forum for a while - I have happily weaned myself from it - where the hatred and bitterness are a hallmark of the commentary. The internet is supposed to be the great "democratizer" because it allows everyone a voice. IMO it is also a place where anonymous cowards hide behind their avatars and spew hatred at all comers. It is the ugly side of what otherwise is a great tool. I for one am happy Jim is able to keep this site focused; it's a real swimming upstream task for which he should be congratulated.

Hi Roger,
Any kind of post that brings potential controversy I try to stay away from because there are always two sides and people get real emotional about them. There are plenty of other forums for that stuff. Here we will stick with fun stuff :beer:

That being said, I went back to check the moderation logs and do not see any entry for having deleted any of your posts or any posts related to that subject. :-k

Hmmmm. I must have been hallucinating, then. Either that, or I had a doggone realistic dream.

Thanks for the reply, Jim.
