|If saving PFIC means less Ken Jones click bait threads, I'm all for it. Sick of reading a thread titled "Someone just caught a 500lb sea bass off the pier", then when you click the thread, theres a link to an article about some guy that caught that fish back in 1922 or someshing. Or some "Amazing pier fishig in Socal", you guessed it, another link to an article about the amazing pier fishing back in 1944.
Its YOU'RE forum Ken, if you just want a high post count, just give yourself whatever post count you want, but please STOP with the click bait threads. Its worse than the yahoo news feeds pages.
"USA declares war on Russia". Then after you click the article continues "...is what we predict if the current situation with ISIS doesn't correct itself"
"Russia Lauches Nuclear Missle Towards the USA" After click "...is what will happen if we don't form better relations with Russia"
Look, I get it, your old and you can't get out there to fish and maybe you think posting rehashed articles makes you feel relevant again. Then when you see the click count start to go up and it probably makes you feel validated so you post more, and more, and more, and more. Which leads us to some of the problems we are discussing on this thread. I will admid though, it was actually refreshing to see Ken post something new and type something himself instead of a link to an article about fishing from 75 years ago. It lets me know that there is a real person behind the username and not some bot thats got a list of articles that it has to post randomly every so often.
Actually I am working on a book about the history of the piers. I find the old stories fascinating; evidently you do not. That's your right but I am sure some people do care about what fishing was like before we ruined it. As for clicking to another site, that's simply because I can add the pictures and text to the site differently than I can on this site.
As for the fishing, I'm still gey out there even if not as much as once. Just returned from Catalina with the usual success. Heading over to the central coast week after next and will, of course, be fishing. So I am alive and well but when I am home, and when I see something I think is interesting, I will post it. I don't really care if you don't like to read the old stuff, some do and it's posted for them. As for post counts? Doesn't matter. What would be nice though are some articulate reflections on the sport, more like those seen in the early days of the site.
