I was surprised a national magazine, part of a group including In-Fisherman, allowed that kind of political nonsense to go on on a public forum they owned.

A site like that should, IMO, have a zero tolerance policy towards political topics. Bass Resource runs like that, gets hundreds (or more) posts a day and is much more relaxing to read.

They can, of course, hire biased, controlling moderators, like Mike Whats'isname who openly squash opinions that challenges their narrowly held views, but it costs them participants on the forum and subscribers of the magazine.

The only truly active forum on that site is "The Lodge: which was a viper-pit of condescension, bullying and thuggish behavior if you didn't conform to the rigid ideology of a very few who flooded the site with hate, finger pointing and blame.

Shooting Sportsman had a similar problem years ago, and it turned what was a worthwhile forum and decent magazine into pablum.

The fellow who took over as lead dog at FF was a Canadian by the name of Ross Purnell. Ross has the personality of a chalkboard and the politics of a socialist. He's one of the reasons why FF is just a how to cast and where to catch magazine with an ever shrinking readership. Ross sided with the Stalinists. I wish them all well.

I honestly don't wish them well. I hope they flame out and die a cold, lonely death in a 10 ft. snowdrift.

People like that do more damage to the cause of genuine environmentalism than we can measure.

Look at what that miserable son-of-a-bitch Al Gore has done to what's really important.

Extremism is never good. Ever.

I don't wish them well, but that's the extent of my revenge. To hell with the left-wing fly fishers, although some on that board (which I've visited but being banned life-time) are rational. I think the FF board is over-represented by west-coast Liberals who like to ban other voices, although some do peek in every once in a while. Men wearing pussy hats shouldn't be taken seriously in any venue.

When I first met Ross Pernell at one of our GOTC outings it took me all of two minutes to know he was no good. As far as that other board goes.... they can all go piss up a rope!
