    The anti's are all over my Facebook page this evening. I'm not replying because they are ignorant and a waste of my time to respond. I'm blocking those that comment but does anyone know of a way to block a review on your business page? I've reported it to Facebook but can't find a way to block the user and it may take some time for the reviews to be deleted by Facebook I'm guessing. Any advice is appreciated.

    Only suggestion I can find.
    It appears you need to turn off reviews all together to get rid of everything. Good bad and stupid.
    Good luck.

    Thanks Brickburn ~ looks like FB did get rid of them fairly quickly, just hate to lose the good reviews! Once it started, it was a chain reaction, their buddies followed suit and I found they were sharing things I posted on their pages like the SCI link regarding the latest FWS announcement, etc. I deleted and blocked everything I could and I changed some of my security settings on the page so hope that also helps!

    Once the muppets start it's like a swarm. Hope you got rid of them.

    Thanks all - I removed the rating system and reviews as it did create a swarm of anti's. Hopefully this will slow them down. I've also cranked up the settings for profanity and postings on my site, etc. We don't bother them, why can't they leave us alone? FaceBook is a great social media tool to share information and photos with clients but very frustrating sometimes!

    What I bet would really get under their skin, would be if you posted on FB how thankful you were to all the outpouring of support after the Anti's sabotaged you. And how you are more confident than ever in your resolve. Basically, hey anti's the more you hate, the stronger our stance!

    Facebook whats that. I do forums and email. Not that I am a technophobe just I have no use for an insecure outfit like facebook. my take on these online cowards is a giant yawn and another beer. we are hunters after all.

    Hi Guys - thanks for your support - I've posted an apology to my "true followers" for the uneducated people in this world! I think was what started the ball rolling was when I posted the link from SCI about the elephant ban in Zim and Botswana - they found me because they are targeting SCI!

    Brickburn ~ thanks for the instructions on removing Reviews as that shut them down pretty quickly (see attached phots) - I reported those and FB would not remove them so I had to delete them all together. The others making comments then I can ban, report, delete and be done with them!

    BWH - I think I'm winning on this one - the comments and likes have been great from fellow hunters and the number of likes on my page is increasing! Publicity can be good even when it's bad :)

    FB does not contemplate the abuse of the system by TROLLS. So, the only way is to remove that component.

    Glad they have been thwarted.

    Lori, I visited your admirers FB page and they suggested an excellent image for a T Shirt.

    You see if you can figure out the original anti message. :)

    They had a spelling and punctuation issue. I made some improvements.

    I'm jealous, I haven't had one yet. You just can't win with some people. One thing I have found is that if you engage with them on a public forum like Facebook or YouTube, you're almost guaranteed not to convert them. However, you are just taking an opportunity to get your point out there, get our position out there and educate the average person about hunting. This is invaluable.

    I tell people that find out that I'm a hunter....I'm still that great guy you know, I just love to hunt, fish and spend time in nature. Maybe if you sat down and got to know me better, you would find out why I love the tradition so much. And to the people that don't want to know, well we don't have to know each other.
