Head Count
<p>Who all here has been banned from HSO (fishing minnesota)? &nbsp;I finally got mine. &nbsp;Someone there ripped off (copy and pasta) a bunch of Longnose Gar info from Roughfish.com - I simply suggested that the OP ought to just come to this website as there is a ton info here, rather than read whatever other people could rip off from here and post there. &nbsp;Apparently, the HSO admins took offensive to this (but not to the ripped off content) and put me in the corner and asked me to appologize. &nbsp;Ain&#39;t gonna happen, not going to appologize for attempting to be helpful. &nbsp;I was pretty sick of that waste of space website anyway.</p>

Your time is more effectively
Your time is more effectively and usefully wasted here, if that's their attitude... Forget 'em and just focus your efforts here!

Tony I saw they deleted your

Tony I saw they deleted your post and left the one that is copy paste from here.

 

Lots of bs on that site and lots of good info. It is a good example of a site getting large and only worring about the money side of the site. Any links to another website and you get banned. I went off one time on somebody there and never got an email or anything they just deleted my comment. I know others who have been banned from that site.

It is all perspective!

Yep twice banned here...

I got banned twice years ago for trying to link to helpful content.  It's such a commercialized garbage forum anyway, sponsored by guides and lodges.  The only worthwile stuff I've seen there has been posted by guys from this forum.

Then all you Minnesota guys
Then all you Minnesota guys need to just completely swear off that forum. If they don't want to let you be helpful, just do your thing over here.

moral support
I posted similar sentiments without knowing of your post. Wonder when the ban hammer will nail me so I can join the club?

Mjohnson - I took a peek

Mjohnson - I took a peek today over lunch and saw they pulled yours and the ripped off post.  Must have reached a critical threshold of complains to remove the rip-off post.  I assume you didn't get the ban hammer?  It seems like saying something true that they don't like just gets your post pulled.  Posting a link to relavant info is what you get the ban for. 

 

Oh well, as others have mentioned - most posts look like a nascar event with fish caught on RAPALA SHAD RAPS in LUND BOATS.  And keywords in your post get linked to products w/out the intent of the poster.  Anyway enough of that rant, just another forum that isn't worth the pixels on the screen

Just saw the stuff was yanked.  Guess I'll have to wait to join the fun club.

I wote to the admins politely

I wote to the admins politely telling them it was wrong to allow an entire article remain on their site with no credit given to the author and when someone did give credit their post was deleted. Only on that site does that happen.

It is all perspective!

I only used to go on that

I only used to go on that site in the winter for icefishing forums. Now I too wan't to get banned! Sounds like the cool makings for a roughfish renegade t-shirt.

"I got banned from HSO (Horse Shit Outdoors)"

I kinda would like to get banned for being slightly offensive though, not just trying to share non commercialized knowledge from a fine group of anglers in the roughfish camp.

Carpy Diem!
