To a limited degree, I agree as far as wild game hunters are concerned. It is non-representative of social media in general though as I see across the full gambit of sportsman activities. I do think that you have uncovered the most fundamental problem. There are no rules.IMO, this site's audience, including me, is simply a reflection of the society from which it comes. I've not been a forum moderator, nor do I want to be, but enforcement of the rules is the key to success.
If the audience reads and understands the rules and wants to participate in accordance with them, and if the moderators enforce the rules, both the audience and the forum may benefit.
I'll say this quietly - where is the admin in all of this?
