a new condo in hell!


Yep, the auction over at http://v-bay.blogspot.com/ is still going great guns and you should head over there and bid on something for this great cause. Bloggers from all over the FF blogosphere have posted about this and most FFBB also have a post or two about this very worth cause.
Uh.... "most"?
Yup... "most" as in not all.
A note regarding this auction was removed by Fly Anglers Online (no link, no way). Hard to believe, but true. After hearing about this, thee kollecktive emailed publisher. Here's her response:
We do not allow auctions or charity requests on FAOL.
We never have. We receive about a dozen requests a week to post for fund
raising for some good cause - and we can't do them all. If we do it for
one, we must do it for all...so we just don't allow it. Plus, most are not
fly fishing related.
Sorry if that offends you.

Deanna Birkholm

Well, it took our crack research staff all of 30 seconds to find these:

We'll allow thee angler to draw his/her own conclusions

What a pathetic cop-out. It's your website, and you can choose to do whatever you want, so don't hide behind some notion of fairness and equity for all, when everyone knows that's never exactly been a hallmark of your highly-subjectively moderated site anyway.

It's called editorial judgment you knobs.

Exercise a little.

How do you sell hypocrite? It may be editorial judgment, but the judgment should be consistent. It wouldn't be too hard to make a place for charity only threads/posts. Actions speak louder than words.
