    Back in the day RTFers pretty much self moderated because the members would call out a dumbass and either the dumbass shaped up or left. Then something happened, "some" blame it on RTF bringing in sponsors, others blame having different "mods". Maybe it's just that there are so many more people frequenting the site that the intimacy is gone and the self moderating ability with it. I don't know but I do know it's much different than it was and not near as much fun.

    Me neither, but have read many of their posts. Anyone that just wants to "take their ball and go home" when the stuff hits the fan generally is telling you a little something about themselves. We had a doc here that used to do that regularly... some would beg him to come back... (usually, that's what they are looking for) In my opinion, if someone wants to pick up and go... adios.

    Good post in several areas.

    I do miss Jeff though he could give as good as he got.

    On the op I think people on Potus come here to look for a certain amount of confrontation while the main page isn't nearly as controversial therefore less confrontation should be permitted. If I remember correctly the reason for Potus was before the election it was totally taking over the main page and there was a clear need for a new page.

    Since this is not a political thread per se I will come out of my self imposed POTUS non poster status. While I enjoyed the debate here I felt it would never change anyone's mind so I gave up. As for the main board its not as much fun as it used to be. I rarely find anything interesting to learn about. All the good juicy gossip and drama in the FT world has moved to Facebook. No good battles about judging, QAA or rules committees. In short all the color has gone and PC / vanilla on the main board have taken over. I also hang out on a few other forums and 1 is like the wild west and even have a smiley that flips you the bird. I enjoy that forum much more these days and notice a lot of the old time posters hardly post anymore either.

    You guys are a bunch of RIGHT WING AS>HOL>S but I would throw birds for you and be glad for your dog when he wins!

    But back to politics....Romney hunted two marks in the 1st series, got called back, had excellent land blind, and should get through the water blind, but unless Obama fails the 4th series Obama wins. Blinds don't win field trials...marking does and Romney's marking aint that good.

    Based on the last four series (years) he's not qualified this year.
