I agree with you, you Asshat and That Dubya butthorn too. And too all you potlickers out there stay off my spots.Pretty sure there are some stale BLimes in the fridge from '12 that you left in there, but ya, I agree with most everything Dubbya said. Except the douchebag thing, I probably need more than one hand.
I think society has created a self made monster when it comes to social media, so much heckling any more. I mean we used to call people online asshats and butthorns but we were drinking beer lakeside with them shoulder to shoulder a few hours later. That vibe definitely seems to be gone.
But in my humble opinion I think traffic has slowed considerably due to the lack of T&A and Fandangler reports.
Anyway, just my observations. What can be done to keep ABF alive? Not really sure, and unfortunately, I don't care enough. haha. I certainly think this site is on its way out and there's not much that can be done to save it. Maybe I'm wrong.
agree 100% hereNot sure if you were referring to what I said about FB or not, but perhaps you misunderstood me. I agree with you, and FB is indeed where all of the action is at. I was just saying I hate the fact that it is, and while there are some positive things about FB and other social media sites... overall, I don't believe they are doing society any favors. It's great for business, not so good for civilization. haha
Maybe you can get a refund for your guide service advertisements. Oh wait.Anyway, just my observations. What can be done to keep ABF alive?

I can think of a couple of dudes on here recently that I don't think would be missed by many folks around here if they mysteriously disappeared from the forum.Plus, Admin allowed a few obvious pricks (grown-ass bullies) to stay on the site. In the old days they were banned quickly.
Too funny Carl, I fished with you many times. We ripped some lip, but you posted every damn detail about Buch. one day... I called you on it and asked WTF, and you got all offended. We haven't talked since. You wonder why your spots were over run? Ha Ha!! Loose lips sink ships...I joined in 2010 and automatically began learning more about fishing and making new friends.
I made a lot of fishing reports, asked questions, offered my opinion, and participated freely in conversations. Then my bank fishing spots were overrun, but I saw no reports. I only made my reports here, at ABF, so I knew this was their source. Obviously, Lurkers. That caused a BIG shift in my attitude about reports.
Then about 3 years ago my new friends began disappearing from the site. Shortly after that, I got too busy to fish. Been so about 1.5 years. I found some of my friends on FB and reconnected. The few times I've fished I've shared my reports there. Why? I can control who sees them - no lurkers. That (lurkers) and my friends absence is why I seldom participate here.

I've probably made more posts here in the last 3 weeks than the previous year total.
just a few thoughts.........
Tell me who, PM if needed. Not against cleaning shop.I can think of a couple of dudes on here recently that I don't think would be missed by many folks around here if they mysteriously disappeared from the forum.
Of course, maybe I'm one of 'em? Too bad. I'm stayin'.
