Stick your slimy hands in your tight wallets and pull out a few Georges or Lincolns and send 'em on to Sandflea. He can use the help keeping this site going.

If you find any value in the Pier and Surf site, ante up now. And if you don't find any value in it (which is not possible), then why do you spend so much time over here!!

A couple of bucks aint gonna set you back on frozen mullet or Slosh30's. So come on guys, step up to the plate.

I hope you were not serious about everyone being a deadbeat because you don't know me well enough to call me that. I don't care if you are a grumpy old man as I was told.

Cobia Seeker - surely you must realize I was making a general statement to a board of over 1,000 registered users, of which less than 25 have made a donation to the cause.

If you donated, then you are no deadbeat Maybe you are in reality, but not in this instance - as you said, I don't know you that well to make that general observation. ;)

However, if you haven't donated to Sandflea, then you would be the biggest, worst, most dispicable kind of deadbeat there is. :p

And by the way Cobia Seeker and Dr. Bunker Breath - I'm not grumpy. I just have a low tolerance for social slacker, welfare state of mind deadbeats who are always looking for a free ride on yours and my dime!!
:mad:

I think is a bunch of bs you have no right to call people dead beats. If this web sight needed money they would make you pay monthly.

I think the site would die if it required a monthly or even annual fee. Maybe not though.
On the other hand, I do know from what Sand Flea has said that he spends a lot of money out of his pocket to keep the site up and running.
Personally I have not given any money. I have my reasons (most importantly I can't afford to give enough to actually help). Anyhow, I don't think you should expect donations. If they are expected, they aren't really donations, but rather dues.
That's like calling the "free" car wash the local cheerleading squad does on saturday at the local gas station "free". They expect a donation. Try going there and getting your car washed and not donating and see what kind of reception you get.
That said, I think this is a great site. I am grateful Sand Flea keeps it up and running. However, if $ was required, I would be gone. Heck, I don't even have cable.
But at the same time, if Sand Flea went that way, I would understand. You have to do what you think is in your best interest.

Man am I rambling.... :(

I have learned a lot from this site and some of it's members, for instance at the casting session in D.C, these guys are all Board members who take the time to help others improve their casting technique free of charge. I had no idea how to tie a shock Leader until I found this site, I have also met some fine individuals who are members of this site. I would hate to see this site go down, there are over one thousand members, who I am sure can donate two dollars each, even if it's for the year, two thousand dollars I am sure will help a lot.

I will give a few bucks to help the cause. Yeah nobodies being forced but I think Eddie was just trying to get people to help out. I like that theres no ads. And Brandon nothing in life comes free you'll learn that when you growup if you don't like the site maybe you should start your own you punk :D

This is some funny stuff. Since I'm a deadbeat why don't you donate to me to help take care of my mife and 5 kids.

You kow I work hard and I play hard so screw you if you don't like it eddie. To quote your words "And by the way Cobia Seeker and Dr. Bunker Breath - I'm not grumpy. I just have a low tolerance for social slacker, welfare state of mind deadbeats who are always looking for a free ride on yours and my dime!!" it ain't my dime but it is yours and I'm going to ride as long as I can..
:p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p

To all you board memebers who took offense to my post --------BITE ME!! Seems like I struck a nerve. If the shoe fits my friends the shoe fits - and I'd say it fits here quite well.

Your right you did. Sandflea made his point about needing money to keep the site up. You however did some real damage by saying what you said and the way you said it. You don't get help by intimadation or mud slinging but some people can't help themselves.

I prolly could have scraped up a few bucks but after this round of posts I think I will pass now and in the future. Seeing as how the person that really matters here has choose not to step in and say anything I guess they feel the same as you.

Cobia Seeker - There really is no way for you to logically conclude that Sandflea's silence on this matter equates to his endorsement of my opinion. This is not fair to Sandflea.

I stated my personal opinion, which I stand by. I think if people derive value from this web site, they should help to pay for its upkeep. I would hate to see it get shut down, but it's not Sandflea's responsibility to maintain an instant messaging board for you and all of your friends.

Upon reading my post, you were presented with two options. The first, which you obviously opted out of was to remain silent on the issue. The second was to engage myself and other board members in a debate over the issue of deadbeats. You were obviously offended by my post and opted for the second action. In so doing, you've shown your true colors. I could proceed with the debate and point out the obvious flaws in your views, but that would be getting personal - which I'm not interested in doing here or anywhere. so I'll acquiesce.

You can feel good knowing that as long as this site remains up and running in its current state that you'll be posting on Sandfleas, mine and the other contributers' dimes. You win.

Well said Big Ed!!! And Mcrea too!!! And Cdog, don't apologize for anything. I already like ya, even though I ain't met ya.

I already posted my long rant about shuckin up 2 bucks a piece. So I won't go there again. Look it up with the "free" search engine on this freakin "free" fishing post page.

Stop whining, pony up some coin, and let's talk about fishin!

If anyone's offended by this, you can BITE ME too, and call me Bunker Breath anytime! Cuz, more than likely it's true!
