According to Bill Thompson, fly fishing bulletin boards are victim to the same “Cult of the Amateur” that infects much information on the web. “The web provides the opportunity for those who post the ability to remain anonymous. It is now possible to slander someone or something without fear of reprisal. Asking a question about a certain piece of gear and you are certain to get a dozen replies almost immediately. Some of the replies may be legit, however anyone with an ax to grind will surely do so.” Caveat Emptor indeed. In the Conway Daily Sun.
