corporate fly fishing: yep, still sucks.

sucks so hard it blows. here's the money quote from Fly Fishermen:

Only threads and posts directly related to art, education, entertainment, food, health, recreation, science and travel will now be allowed.

besides the easy ridicule this story abides, there are some interesting issues being brought to the boil here. feel free to discuss in comments.

Whitey! You're back. It was so boring while you were gone.

And yeah, it sucks, but why expect anything from a commercial board? It's not as if there are any first amendment guarantees in the private sector, and it's not as if the future of civilization is being formulated on most message boards anyway...

well, this is the salient point, of course. FF is not "censoring" you, rightly understood. it just feels that way. most, it seems, have gotten accostemed to the sensation.

Since when does the FF forum qualify as "corporate fly fishing?" A forum is 99.9% about its posters. Sponsorship and moderation really don't make much of a difference.

I think you're making a mountain out of a molehill... or, in this case, a series of tubes.

Oops. I think I sent my message through the tube prematurely.

anything named "Primedia" sounds pretty goddamn corporate to me. I wonder if Ross has a nice cube?
