At one time almost all members of this forum had one enemy--Anti Trappers.
Now in many cases,it seems we are our own worst enemy. I find it very hard to believe how things have changed.
Making fun of those members that are not the best at spelling and organizing their posts or thoughts.
Name calling and degrading those that wear a mask--calling them sheep or sheeple.
Its time to quit all this crap and reunite as trappers,the smallest and most likely outdoor group to lose what we love--TRAPPING.
Stop and think of what you are posting,those you are making fun of,are necessary to keep trapping alive.
Time to unite once again--not divide.

There are those on here that start threads only to divide and start bickering. They should go away too.


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???

I get what the OP is saying though. A trapper is a trapper regardless of political or other beliefs and should be treated as such.

Edit: and to add, I have found most people on here to be great people.

I see lots of posts on here in support of folks that are needing help or having a hard time.
We can all be different, but if we need to come together in support of trapping we will do so in a hurry. I'm sure of that.
I enjoy all the different points of view on the varied topics, even when things become heated and sometimes ridiculous.
A little more civility may be in order, but its gonna get boring in a hurry around here if we all just get a long for the sake of getting along.

Hutchy making fun of something is one thing. This has turned into--more than making fun.

so, we're to look the other way when someone talks about VOTING for anti-gun, anti-trapping candidates?

I'm going to have a hard time with that.

I think boco invites it and welcomes it to a point. I think its a little different situation myself.

Yes, he likes a higher level of banter. I don't think Boco counts, for the purposes of this discussion...

Keeping in mind that a lot of people come here for entertainment and I think those people (you know who you are) enjoy the banter and making fun of people.

I understand completely the difference, and the reason for this post.

But Boco seems to be able to dish it out in return. Not so with coonman220

Maybe but I'm not so sure I think Coonman220 enjoys the attention. But It does get a bit out of hand at times.
