    Hello members,
    Unfortunately,the recent behavior of a few members has resulted in some account suspensions.
    The staff here at OGF does not issue suspensions without giving considerable thought to each situation and only do so as a last resort.
    However sometimes we are left with little choice.

    We pride ourselves on providing a forum for fishermen to meet,share tips,tactics and a laugh or two.
    The vast majority of our members use the forums in the correct manner,but for those that dont,I am posting a reminder of a few key elements in the "Terms of Service" that you agreed to when you joined.
    The TOS addresses personal battles and bad-mouthing other members among other things, which we have been very lenient on until recently.

    Please review:
    No obscenities, personal attacks, character assassination, etc. will be tolerated. reserves the right to remove any post(s), without notice. You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages.

    We don't intend to censor messages based on the opinions expressed within those posts, but we will enforce the policies outlined both here and within the Forum. If you have any questions, please contact the administration staff of

    When/if disruptive non-productive thread(s) are initiated, it is best to ignore them (as difficult as that might seem) and not engage in conversation (either publicly on the forum or privately via e-mail or PM) with the offender. More often than not the initiator(s) of such thread(s) is not interested in dialogue but rather simply in disrupting the message board and detracting from the usefulness and purpose of the Forum. Do not add fuel to their misguided fire. It is far more intelligent and productive to report this person to us privately so that we can investigate further and take the appropriate action.

    Thanks for your time,and thank you for your participation here at OGF!
