Nope, it follows the site rules. It's not a forum. However, if any mods want me to remove it, I will do so.

Not this guy again. There is no glory in running, owning, or moderating a fish forum. It's more a badge of courage than a gold star on your forehead should you choose to get a forum active & keep it that way. Once you get past being a member on a forum it's a lot less fish & a lot more people skills, as well as dealing with people issues. I've run a few, some busy, some slower, the question always asked when considering a member for a mod position; why do we want to take this perfectly happy, active, and knowledgeable member, and saddle them with all the crap that comes with being a mod?

Being an owner and/or admin is even worse, if you don't have some serious people skills, computer skills, along with in depth knowledge of the topic material you're screwed. You need to be resource heavy in these things, online as well as off.

There's some pieces missing for this ever returning member, and honestly he isn't a threat to this site due to that. Pretty sad really, if he worked on those skills rather than trying to scam members from active sites he wouldn't need to scam members from active sites.

Just wanted to bring this back up as it may be that the site's herpes is back. Please report to a mod if you get any PMs asking you to join another fish forum or respond here.

This guy has been pulling this for years, on a variety of forums. Pretty sad for an adult to have to act in that manner. Some sites that are a bit more lenient have had a real rip on him. Can't say I blame them.

Indeed. Admin being more than one person also doesnt realize when it is Jim. I believe the ones who are on here now know his game. FWIW, I did put a ban on a few of his IPs so far. Just gotta wait till he runs out. It gives me something to do though LOL.

Despite the part where it can irritate members and require a little work out of the mods or admin....

I think it is extremely funny. How pathetic his life must be to carry on like a child at an age old enough to retire. You would think that life would be a tad easier at that point. Hatefulness is useless energy. Couldn't ask for it to happen to a better person I guess.

I did but admin gave him a chance and he done good for a few days then got mad that they wouldn't make him mod.

If he actually used his real name why didn't anyone recognise him for so long?
