    There are lots of reasons that people stop visiting the RTF...if you really feel that POTUS is one of them,then voice your opinion to the powers that be and let them know...it wont be the first time it has been closed...

    heck I might even open up a FB account just to talk with all the people who no longer peruse the site,that number seems to be growing
    Let me know!

    Plus having that particular sub forum attracts unwanted attention to RTF from search.
    While I debate the position of the OP on POTUS, I still think is entertaining to have this section as part of RTF. I just love reading posts by Franco. No changing his mind! Some nights after I am through reading RTF and playing online Bingo off I go to Potus for entertainment. Good for something and I am Canadian eh. Some of the issues same up here. Politicians usually the problem! Occasionally I comment. But my RTF page is set to open at the retriever info. No I think POTUS has some value. Be a shame to get rid of it. IMO

    No need to remove POTUS, I did not know it existed until now .... really, maybe I have led a sheltered RTF life .... OP needs to learn how to navigate the Forum first.

    No you don't really need to force fetch to have a very serviceable retriever. Had never even heard of FF thirty ish years ago when I had my first lab. Hunted with him for 13yrs, harvesting well over a hundred dove per year for much of that time and can only remember losing three birds (one of which was carried off by a hawk). He loved to hunt, sat calmly next to me in the field, didn't break on shot, sat on whistle, and took hand signals, all only using waterdog for training. Could he have competed successfully in trials? Maybe not, but that wasn't my thing anyway, we hunted.

    This thread should be a sticky. It's everything except the classifieds all rolled into one.


    Anyone want to buy my old TT regards

    That's what I have done. Politics and religion are 2 no win topics for discussion. But I think they should be available on a board as some do love the debates. Heck...this has been such an entertaining thread I might have pop in.

    This nation was divided before he was elected, but it is each day becoming too large to ever be fixed..

    As far as site improvements, the RTF could be broke down into smaller sub sections.... so topics could be placed together...
    Everyone knows it is Bush's fault that POTUS is on RTF.

    My suggestion for site improvement: add a "like" function.
