Can anybody explain why the post that pauline made last night that caused her to give up fishing has went to Was it a moderators decision to totaly remove all threads relating to it or was it big brother I am asking because I have never seen this happening before (I dont want this to start a big debate or anything I am just curious as to why

I don't know Isac, but I'd be very surprised if it wasnt removed by a moderator.
The "debate" did rather descend into a personal slagging match, and I genuinely hope that angling hasn't lost Pauline as a result - lord knows there are precious few female anglers as it is.

It was removed by a Moderator at Paulines own request.
PS Pauline is still about and I am sure it wont be long before she posts again. She is probably just keeping a low profile at the moment until things die down:group:

nah lobbit i think some people were just pi55ed off, and i dont think its fair for all the other guys that were on here to say she has quit because of comments that were made, comments are made every day and what about the ones that were made to the two guys involved.

Its easy for people to get carried away with their comments when they are on a keyboard rather than speaking to someone face to face where they may not be as forthright IMO.

Its one thing to say that you arent going to use the forum any more, but i certainly wouldnt be giving up fishing if it was me because of a few comments on a forum.

Everybody has a right to their own opinion & hopefully lessons will be learned on both sides that its very easy to escalate into a personal slanging match, which really isnt very nice.

Iknow what you are saying about quitting when you blank I have said that for about the last 40 years every time I blank but I know that I never will because the next fish might be that big one.
