Let me try to steer this.
My upbringing, and my life's lessons, have taught me alot about respect, and Igenerally apply that here, when reading others, off topic posts.
As for Fishing Forum respect, I personally respect the folks that are posting reports, with pictures, more than others. In my case, if you were to look at my reports, :doh you may see someone who really sucks, (true) but is slowly :banghead getting better.
The only way I'm getting better, is by taking the advice from folks who actually post reports (with pictures). With pictures and reports, I can sort through potential POSERS!!!! Also from my reports, you can call me out when I think I'm better than my reports indicate.
The other thing that I hate reading is that people don't post for negative reasons!!!! I love reading and looking at fishing pictures. If folks are not putting them on here because of X, let's get rid of X!!!!!!
