Don't know why it was deleted. Nothing slanderous was said. Nothing other then an opinion. No reason whatsoever why that was deleted. Guess someone's had a bad day at work/small tool syndrome. Another nail in the coffin

Kapscarper are you ever even remotely positive - or do you permanently suffer from small tool syndrome yourself?

The Ology thread had nothing nice to say, it made a load of unfounded conclusions that were so wrong it was laughable and it's threads like that, directed against a UK business that's run by some smashing blokes, which are the real nails in the coffin on here.

Exactly - it may have been an opinion, but it was unpleasant and somewhat abusive towards the guys at 'ology - not really necessary in a carp fishing forum. Sorry for not posting why it was deleted - I thought it was pretty obvious given the content.

Smashing blokes they may be, they still produce a very adolescent looking publication with some ropey looking birds in it. Seems to appeal to the "average carp angler" these days though.
The fact that there's more full page adverts and pictures of hair cuts, than there are actual articles is nothing but a sign of advertising revenue being of more importantance than readable content. But let's face it, most of their readership do little more than gaze at the pictures and wish they were tel. Everyone wins, fiver a pop too. :notworthy:

Personally, I'm a subscriber, but that's mainly the mental subs offers they do at Sandown every year. They have a few good articles each month (I do Regan though).

Just to be clear - the original thread was deleted not because it had a pop at 'ology, but the unpleasant language and personal insults it contained. No problem with anyone expressing an opinion, but in good taste please.

There are a few bits in the mag that make me chuckle I do like Dave lanes writing he always makes me chuckle and rhe last 2 terry hearn articles have been good. Have to admit though the rest of it is a bit ropey imo.

I like the mag, rob Hughes underwater articles were some of the best and Jason Hayward is always thought provoking. Put it above total, advanced, and BC tbf

Well to be honest I didn't read any of the replays so can't comment on other comments.
They may be a great bunch of guys at ology (spelt the way you say it when your in the click!!!) but there are obviously forum members who have issues with the mag and like to discuss them on a fishing forum, if the 'ology' Guys read the threads then I'm sure there big enough to handle negative feed back as negative feed back can be great help, but obviously they might not of been able to read the comments now as you jumped to there rescue so not to hurt there feelings!!! Oh well lets only tell someone when they've done good!! Do you go to a restaurant and leave a tip when the service is bad??? Or only if it Danny fairbrass is serving ya!!!

Lol coming from you that is truly brilliant. The stand out muppet of the forum - again my opinion so don't get your knicker elastic in a twist son.

yeah if something positive needs saying then I'll say it........but good guys or not I'm a consumer, I'm a paying customer so I am entitled to an opinion just like you or anyone else and if I want to say a magazine is gash then quite frankly what's it got to do with you?? UK run or not does that give them the green light to make something that was once the best available into something what it is today?

Smashing guys?? Oh dear better get the chapstick out........I'm sorry but you won't be getting a deal off the 'ology' guys or perhaps you're hoping to be the next mod on here?? Because how you come across in most of your posts well all I've got to say is I'd deffo vote 'YES' on you being a mod..... You have every quality needed to suceed

If you mean me then I'm always tetchy when either of 2 things happen.........when A) I wake up to early or B) some jumped up little no mark has a dig and trys belittling me for saying something on a fishing forum - about fishing

If you mean yourself then it's ok we have come to accept it by now

I thought the subject matter was a good choice for a rant, but I thought the execution was somewhat restrained due to the LACK of unpleasant language and venomous personal insults.

I'm not angry just honest and I'm not fishing I'm at home. The fish near me are doing something you've quite clearly never experienced ;)

I think you might want to go and re-read the thread, as you are not talking to the right person here.
To re-iterate - I have NO PROBLEM with anyone coming onto the forum, and criticising anyone they want to. The ology boys are big enough to cope.
I didn't delete your post because it contained criticisum, but because you made some really rather unpleasant and lewd remarks that have no useful place on a fishing forum.
