Since the start of this board I have often thought about how this board should be aligned when it comes to view points, opinions and politics. Should it be aligned with the Left or Right side of the Fly Fishing World?  It would be rather easy to pick a side and just kick out those who did not share the same view point as has happened on so many other boards.

The answer I came up with is not to align the board with either side, but keep the board a place where any side can express their view points or opinions, honestly, politely, respectfully and openly.
