Tim S, great policy, if you see "stanky bait" leave it for the crabs!
(if a mystery poster tries to lure someone)
reel em in boys

Dashaway, to paraphrase The Wordmeister, if you come upon a pile of crap in your path, you have to choice:
1. walk around the crap
2. walk though the crap
Either one will get you to the otherside but the second one will leave you smellin' like crap
There's other variations:
Don't ever wrestle with a pig cause if ya do, when yer done, you'll be covered in mud but the pig will like it
The stanky bait one I just made up
Bottom line, bait only works if it's attended to.

Show someone how to catch striped bass and they'll be ready to fish anywhere.
Show someone where to go striped bass fishing and you'll have a desperate report chaser with loose lips.
We love our stripers - please don't take more than yah need.

Here's another one on the same theme. This from long, long ago and one much wiser than I.
A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. The tongue of the wise commends knowledge, but the mouth of the fool gushes folly.

'Do not tell fish stories where the people know you; but particularly, don't tell them where they know the fish.' Mark Twain

Gee, while we are quoting people how about this one:
"Peoples opinions are worth precisely as much as a belch, the difference being that a belch is more satisfying."
-- Ingmar Bergman

I kinda hate to post his after your quote but it's about the only place I'll get to use this line, so, with all due respect...
