Default Question Wiley....another fishing site...

I know we are not forced to pay anything to post here but "strongly encouraged" to buy a wheel or two.

But how come when I pm a buddy about another fishing site, it comes up as THT? I'm not trying to take any business or anything from you...it's a site that's more concentrated on off-shore fishing and rigging videos and I know some guys that would like it and find the videos and tips pretty useful.

Many sites block links back to THT so it might be a tit-for-tat thing.

Also, for some reason, grown adults sometimes become confused and think of forums that compete with their favorites as being something threatening to them personally. They go to other sites try be disruptive. One favorite tactic is to make a myriad of posts with links back to their stomping grounds.

There are various reasons for link filtering. All blocks are self-induced by the site in reference - I don't "seek out" sites to block.

Didn't say a particular site was being targeted...just wondering how the filter works when other sites are allowed for marine supplies...those aren't blocked....

Btw, Kamper, this is just a site where there's more off-shore tips (i.e. tackle, videos)...I see pics of alot tuna and dolphin on here and thought some might be interested...neither is my stomping grounds and i don't get anything out of it.

I was just offerring a possibilty. W-Man hadnt noticed your request in a few days and I thought some speculation might generate useful comments from the membership.

thanks Kamper....but it looks like certain sites are targeted or specifically blocked....no big deal.

Anyone wanting offshore tips, tackle, or videos, email me theduckblind@cox.net
