Let me get this straight... if you post anything useful, which might actually help kids of any age
build their interest in native fishes, it's labeled as pontificating and/or
doing all the work for them.

The post that Chris made was thoughtful and appropriate. The student <could>
have tracked down the same basic information through NatureServe or one of a
dozen online lists, but it wouldn't have had the conservation message
(dangers of dams and channel maintenance on big rivers) that Chris' reply
had. I thought that was supposed to be one of the primary objectives of

Slamming Chris for an extremely appropriate post, while remaining quiet on
inappropriate spamming of tasteless jokes, is the height of hypocrisy.

It's days like this that make me question the utility of this list.
