You sir, are Obsessed with his Obsession on Definitions, and by definition that makes you a sad obsessed forum going armchair apneist.You sir, are by definition, obsessed with definition! :hmm
LOL - for sure Possibly you can start by giving Yeti and me some counselling as we were both very disappointed to have had our applications to join Armchair Apnea International declined as we're breaking their joining criteria because we get wet too often. We were gutted :-(I should be a counsellor
On Sat night me, Yeti and an undercover Spearo were diving at night in a marine reserve.
Whether it’s because you haven’t read the thread properly or you are just being deliberately obtuse, you are clearly missing the point by a mile?On Sat night me, Yeti and an undercover Spearo were diving at night in a marine reserve.
Our activity was completely legal.
I've dived in and around conservation zones in S Africa - the fish life was amazing compared to other areas so perhaps sensibly planned conservation zones aren't so bad after all?
I'm in an armchair now....... but unfortunately sat in the middle of the north sea??? does that still not count?LOL - for sure Possibly you can start by giving Yeti and me some counselling as we were both very disappointed to have had our applications to join Armchair Apnea International declined as we're breaking their joining criteria because we get wet too often. We were gutted :-(
Enthusiastically seconded... it is a great post and a much needed voice of reason Yeti... sincere thanks.Great post though mate. You can explain it all to me one day ;-)
Narcissus... isn't that the Greek bloke who fell in love with himself? He surely wouldn't have had enough time away from his mirror (or a 100,000 word PhD) to spend researching and informing lots of apparent ingrate's how to protect themselves and what they love doing... would he??? -walk the fine line between narcissistic irrational single-mindedness, and being organised, determined, patient and rational....i guess?? :girlie
As a respected and popular DB member of staff, team leader and apparently all round good and knowledgeable spearo... perhaps you/DB could formally invite Steven Mullineaux - (bsachairma[email protected]) to express his & the BSA's new initiative/ethos here on the forum?It would be nice if the BSA made a presence on db...perhaps they will now?
Sincere thanks from me Foxfish. I think I have already made my views known both to this forum and to the BSA. My hope is that although I also do not agree with competitive spearfishing over time and along with other like-minded (new) members the BSA will focus on the forthcoming onslaught from uninformed do-gooders, political opportunists and legislative bodies. We clearly may need to change some of our practices, (hopefully none) & accommodate some minority views, but small price to pay if we can negotiate as a majority via an established national body within all consultation processes which may/will effect us in the near future?I do believe that the majority of BSA members are familiar with the forums existence, if they are not already members, but as this forum in general, does not agree with the BSA approach to spearfishing compertisions, we do not have many active BSA members!
However I would be more than happy to invite Steven Mullineaux to present the BSAs new incentives on the forum.
There are obvious benefits for all spearos to unite......
Edit... I have sent a mail to the chairman..
