Oh yea...I remember that avatar now...why was it deleted? Too colorful?
Sponsors didn't like it
Glad to see some old timers pop back up. I still remember those. BBQ's at Ali's like it was yesterday. Fuck off everyone. Thanks
It wasn't sponsors. It was google ranking us as a porn site and pointed out that image. When we get ranked as a porn site we get filtered at work places, net nanny, etc along with banned from google ads and the search engines.
We have to remove at least 2 images a month to keep google happy. The site doesn't run for free...
Funny all my porn searches on google seem to work just fine?
Yep because they are not advertising through google and they are not being viewed at work...
funny...I just searched BD for porn...its loaded with porn
If I get notification for this photo from Google I will have to ban you .
Looking at my old emails. Here you go. 6/7/2016

Ok all you old timers on this board. Anyone know of or heard from Jim Paul...AKA Shinerunner. Where did he disapear to....
I knew him. Fished with him several times.........
he didn't post much after he bought that new boat.
Many great trips and times had with friends I've met here.
So, so much funny shit in the early days. Literally, the wild west era of the internet. Great job Ali and J on keeping this place together over the years. Still one of a handful of sites I visit daily.
Chad is the man!
