I Just don't buy that people cant figure out how to use the website. It's no different than any other forum. Especially seeing that some of the offenders have been registered for years. And as far as those asking for information paying it forward so to speak, it just doesn't happen. They say 10% of the fishermen catch 90% of the fish, I would say the same percentages are true here on LL regarding sharing information. The majority of those people fishing for information will never be heard from again. People are lazy and selfish. And I'm no different.
Your complaint about wading through millions upon millions of complaint posts doesn't hold water either. The admins will delete all this in the morning haha. What you are wading through are all the "spoon feed me now or I'm going to tell mommy on you" posts.
Just imagine what our grandfathers had to do to get an "ice report"? They walked to the lake 10 mile up hill each way in the snow and cold with an ax and checked it themselves. I for one would love to get back to those ways, I think It'd do the youngin's some good.
