My e-mail is my screen name @ejourney.com
I check in once or twice a day , but have been turned off by all the bickering , political shizzz on a fish site , and name calling and indifference from the site.
The only political shizzz I would want to see on a fish site is congressional moves that hurt our hobby and what we can do about it .
Fish freaks are what they are ! Everyone of us has our own likes and dislikes ! No need to criticize someone for having a different opinion !
I'm still here . I understand that Kory is leaving the site this year ?

I did not know this, When was this announced? I know he is moving but I didn't think he would just up and leave, I think UsaFishbox would have a better chance with more then one Admin. For instance the regulars, There are a bunch of people who contribute to this site and qualify to be a regular. The only person who can do that is Admin. I have emailed folks who should be in the status of regular and emailed Kory about it. A month and a half has gone by no admin duties including the regulars thing have been accomplished. Only thing I saw from him was his ads in the market (For his stuff)and 90% political posts. I know he is in the middle of a move and work has picked up but fishbox is supposed to stop when Kory is moving? If he knew he was going to be away he should af appointed someone to take over the duties in his absence. If there was two or three Admins it wouldn't be a problem. He knows how the system works and if he is the founder he can always remove admins at his discretion.

He mentioned in a post awhile back that he was going to get rid of his fish and equipment , and move in Oct.Nov. time span and that he would be out of fishkeeping and away from the site but would not be completely away. or some such . I asked him who was gonna run the site when this went down , and Kory being Kory , he never answered me .

I know something happened in the past with these two and one moved. I don't know the whole story but It was along the same lines as what is being brought up now.

For any successful "website" forum you need a "leadership group" or Admin team. One person calling the shots doesn't work. Everyone should be allowed to have an opinion and share it. Kory was fine with that as long as you shared his opinion. Anyway the thought process behind a leadership group or committee is to stop stuff like this. In the Hill Country Cichlid club we have a 7 person leadership group and trust me we don't always agree on everything but a majority rule wins. We try to keep it mostly fish related but we have an "off-topic" just for fun section too. We've had a few political threads pop up and folks have different opinions but nobody tries to be "King" or "boss-man"

I belive in freedom and a right to express yourself. I made a few threads that I feel stongly about and I wanted to get others more aware of what's truly going on. This is a fish forum no doubt about that but there is a lounge you can post other subjects in. If you don't like the thread don't click on it.

I have been super busy latley with some things and I have not been on as much. When I don't post much, advertize much and IM not active all activity goes down. It's not b/c I posted a few threads about Cannabis and polotics. Funny thing is thoes threads get more attetion, looks and post then all the others.

I have 2 kids a wife and other things going on. Please forgive me for being not as active as usual.

If you all want the site to be active then post some interesting fish things or pictures to create disscusion not some topic about how we are dead and then turn it in to bashing me I mean Really? lol. Please don't wait up for me on helping the forum be active and grow. I was happy to see the picture of the month up and running with no help from me what so ever.

I don't care if you want to trash talk me. You are free to do as you please I just get to see the true colors of you. Most of you know little about me or have ever been around me long enough to make a educated assumption on how I live my life and who I really am. I will leave that up to god to juge me.

People come and go, USA Fishbox and I will always be here.
