When I joined the BOC, I followed the rules and included a photo of myself. Reason being, the BOC said it was required. We had some members that their face did not show up well in their existing photo and they got a PM from the sheriff informing then that they had to correct the situation. We, for the most part, conformed to the photo thing, but then it slowly developed over the past few months that there might be more hats than faces on this board. Don't get me wrong, I like the new BOC hat, but it belongs on our heads out in the public or while we are out fishing or at the weighin with the winning fish, not on a message board. Every now and then when someone writes something that I disagree with, I like to get right in their face and debate the issue. Hard to do against a good looking hat. As of right now, the playing field is not level. Wonder what we are going to do about it? I don't know, but I bet the Shadow knows!!
