    Adrian,
    I did not enjoy this and we fight with USFWS and CITES every day to protect our hunters. I will share this with a few key people to hope a change will come in the near future. Thank you. Robert

    Hi very new to the page so I hope you don't mind my views. I've always been a firm belive that negativity only ever breeds negativity however, after recently having a number of my photos, blogs and writings stolen and publicised in a big way, I found that for every one negative comment another ten positive ones were recived.
    I would hope all the threats, negative comments etc are kept for future reference or even evidence should that situation arise.
    I feel that potentially publishing these comments could be just showing the antis the attention they seek.
    I am however always up for a laugh so would be happy to leave it to your discretion to post either snippets of antis making fools of themselves or anything you feel we really need to know.

    I would absolutely start a thread on the hate mail and threats you and other administrators receive. I would keep track of all the email address but not show them in the tread, you don't want folks getting into email battles or worse having one of them with a fake account here sending treating messages and the antis doing something like "see what the hunters sent to me"

    Jerome,

    All threats of any nature should be sent to the FBI.

    Other than that ignore them.

    Regards,

    Philip

    Sorry for the interruptions today, AH has been under attacks from Iceland to bring the site down so that it would not load.

    Assumed so....

    Iceland?

    Are they branching out? Isn't it usually from Malaysia or some place in the east?

    Intesting Jerome. That is something I didn't know, although as I typed I seemed to recall something about Assange and Iceland.

    Ironic how too much of a good thing is actually bad isn't it? We can't live without water, but drink too much and we die.

    Yeah but let them warm up elsewhere! Just counted and as you know this makes for the 8th country to be blocked from accessing AH server.
