Discussion in 'Marine Life Protection Act Initiative (MLPA)' started by Luhr'd Away, Mar 18, 2009.
On behalf of everyone, we thank you for all your efforts.
PLease take the time and fill this out. tell your friends, tell your 3rd grade math teacher, whoever whatever, tell someone please
There are a whole bunch of private boaters in Santa Barbara, Ventura and Los Angeles counties who were conned into participating in a totally bogus "socio-economic" survey designed to trap the participants into placing an economic value on new no-take marine reserves. Ever since, regaining their trust in any similar surveys, no matter how legitimate, has been an impossible uphill climb.
Tommy says this is legit. Believe him. Do it.
Two friends, Chuck and Lawrence of the BettyL, were up North. I discussed this in great detail with them, and with Tommy's imput, we know it is legit.
Perhaps this topic should be a "Sticky Post" and on every forum for maximum visability and effectiveness?
Wow, Only one more response and several views since last night? Pretty disapointing to say the least. Especialy for such a hardcore website of hardcore fisherman that are about to lose and/or be limited to the very thing that gives them so much gratification and joy.
Agreed, I will keep it in the spot light. The least I can do.
Survey complete, I also encouraged everyone I know in berth 29 (Cabrilllo) to do the same.
Damn, with all the members on this board, I cannot believe we can only get a handful of people to respond.
This is pathetic. 500+ view and only a handful of responses. This shit is verifed by Tommy and the boys. There are going to be a bunch of mo fo's crying the blues when this shit passes. They did it to the Channel Islands, it is a matter of time before it hit here. SO, we have a fishing site with people who like to fish. To busy to donate 3 minutes of your time? I sincerely hope not. Please take the survey.
Art, as one of many "silent" fisherman on this site, we appreciate your efforts and passion, but settle down. I completed the survey but until reading the above quote didn't intend to clutter this post with a "I did it" post. The important thing is to complete the survey and do things like send letters to the person who took the time to post the MLPA-related addresses yesterday (with sample leters), not get on here and yap about what we did. Don't assume folks aren't responding just because they don't post that they took a survey or wrote a letter....
