Hey Bobber, do you even have a boat and get out on rivers?
Or do you just come over here to piss folks off with political stuff? Is that how you get your kicks? Isn't the internet amazing - you can sit in Atlanta and get a reaction out of a bunch of "durned libruls" out in Colorado. Well, that's a pretty pathetic pastime, if you ask me. Its what's called a "Troll" in 'Net parlance. And whaddaya know, "Trolling" is one of your interests according to your profile. When I see the kind of crap you post it typically makes me think of a 13-yr old kid who has no other way to empower himself and feel good, other than pushing people's hot-buttons. The same kind of kid that would taunt a dog behind a fence, you know. Pretty friggin sad....
I don't think I've ever seen even ONE of your posts that was associated with boating. The closest you've come is mentioning getting outdoors on the Appalachian Trail. That's great, and I commend you for it, and maybe there are some hiking and backpacking forums where you can talk about something you actually DO besides spouting your politics to a bunch of whitewater boaters and backcountry skiiers 1500 miles from where you actually live.
I remember the day I heard about Max getting killed and how, even though I'd only read his posts here on the Buzz, I was saddened throughout the day. He'd been a part of this online community and there were plenty of folks that knew him from boating with him posting rememberences throughout the few days that news spread. You didn't know what you were posting about but TB, you sure stuck your foot in it this time.
You've sure got me looking forward to the new Mt. Buzz software that will have the "ignore user" feature....
