The Anchoring system, without an anchor, is what excites me. You wouldn't have to drop your anchor to fight a big fish. Very nice!
ProYak, the bullet point that you deleted was completely relevant to your post (about kayaking*). You were giving your personal reasons for why you chose that motor over an outboard. And, it is a legitimate one because it influenced your decision (even if other forum members disagree).
People will always bring political, religious, and philosophical tidbits into their posts/conversations at any given time - it's part of what makes them, them. Asking them not to do it is silly. Basically what you are asking an individual to do is to post or comment leaving their personality and outlook on life at home. It won't happen, nor should it. Everyone has the opportunity not to read, not to comment, or not to discuss any issue on any board. Write what you want and make jabs if you want. I have been a follower of the posts here for some time and have seen people make underhanded quick jabs about presidents, other fisherman, conservation activists, and even their wives. Such is life...
Thanks for your support Halbert - yes it's becoming increasingly difficult to hold a contrary opinion on ANYTHING in this Brave New World
. A different perspective is often seen as a threat, and MUST BE SILENCED.
