another fake post that will never follow up. I think fishing digest members should boycott these posts.
Once again, for those who don't know.......
Several weeks ago, Admin admitted that ALL "FS Digest" posts are totally fake... made up by Admin, including giving us the "formula" for creating the "name".
I can only assume that "they" think it's both "helpful" and "useful".
I have to admit that despite that revelation, I still read the responses for an occasional useful tip from a well-meaning member, but more for the entertainment value of the attempts to "help" an obviously clueless newb making inane statements, requests, observations, and generally put out there to see if they can "get a rise" out of somebody.
More than likely, Admin is playing a game of "just how many posts can THIS generate ?", then laughing to themselves at the ludicrous query their somewhat-twisted minds came up with.....must be SOOOO pleased when it generates more than just a few responses.
Maybe not, on THIS one, huh ???
........ LOL & a hardy-har-har-har.
The REAL issue, as far as I am concerned, is that so very often, these ridiculous and deceptive thread posts usually (along with the ever present, endless rambling, plageristic "cut-and-pasted", "click on this for more" Ron620 posts) are usually at least 50% of the "Main Topics" section, apparently taking precedence over GENUINE QUERIES from REAL FS STAGE MEMBERS, who trust that pertinent info is forthcoming...... you can FIND these genuine asks in the "Newest Topics" at the top of the initial page of each day's forum you receive. I believe there were 204 there, when I logged in today !!!
Those "somewhat hidden" topics are legitimate posts, both inquisitive and "look what I caught" sharing types..... THE ACTUAL REASON WE ALL LOG IN, whether it be daily or occasionally, no matter.
I, personally, take great offense that a bogus b.s. thread displaces genuine interaction between the members, especially when it demonstrates someone's empathy output is usually going for naught.
I say ...join me in noticing that the "poster" is "FS Digest", read the mostly lame-ass query (notice that there is ALWAYS a query, never, EVER, a "here's a tip to make your life a bit easier/better/ hopeful/happy/content.... that's just so sad) and then MOVE ON DOWN THE LIST, WITHOUT A REPLY.
As long as y'all keep replying, they'll probably keep coming..... contentious folk live for the reaction, could not give 2 sh##s about the actual outcome..... Mamma told me to simply ignore that kind, maybe they'll just go away.
Hope springs eternal, don't it ?
