Call this a conspiracy theory. I have no idea how profits are made on forums like this but I am sure someone pays ( Globe, Boston.com, Mobil super,etc just look to your right) for each contribution. Possibly someone with website mngmt,. could answer this. I could be way of base.
But it seems that this Rustygriswold, DelGriffth, Basschamp something, guitar playing guy, even GlenR accusations ( Glen I think you are legit! love the anti Jests comments) always gets responses.. $$$$$.
Supposedly this site was upgraded to provide more Pats dialogue and less of argumentitive dialogue that was previously seen. Yet it still seems to show up with a new , albeit "rusty" type contributor, in many of the threads.
Could it be the management of this forum could be guilty of manipulation? Thus iniating reactions?
If i am right than maybe I will become the Joe Turner ( 3 days of the Condor, for the old guys ) and have been banned by Higgins ( ie BDCDottie, Rusty, Bass guy ,etc). Let it be known though that i left a copy of this with the Canandaigua Messenger ( allright, it is not the NY Times, but an influential newspaper in the Finger Lakes area) should I not be heard from again.
PS: it is always great to read the MB draft thread which always has only positive ( and thousands of) contibutory response. HMMM ....maybe more supportive evidence ( read thousands !).
