The original post was taken down because of the nature of how it was written and the direction it was heading. The post about censorship was removed because it deals with the admin of this site.
We appreciate your contributions and involvement, but sometimes we make decisions like this not from a personal angle, but instead to keep some civility and keep the train on the tracks.
If the subject matter is relevant and important, perhaps starting another post (or submitting a guest blog) on the subject is a good idea, keeping in mind that we appreciate it being done so intelligently, cordially, and well-behaved. There are some worthy discussions to have, and they can be had in many places, but on this site they need to be civil Ė remember there are kids here wanting to learn about fishing.
This forum is primarily for discussion of fishing, letís keep it that way, and letís maintain a little bit of decency as we do so.
Understand that managing a diverse and open forum like this isnít easy and that we wonít be able to please everyone all the time. If you have an issue dealing with the administration of the website, please contact us directly.
