    Default Saying goodbye...

    Hi all. I received notice from Vertical Scope (the current owners of NCangler.com) on Friday that my services as Administrator were being terminated effective immediately. There was no explanation for why this was happening. I replied with a question asking for some explanation, but I have received no response. I assume that my user account will be changed from "Administrator" to "Registered Angler" soon.

    Before that happens I just want to say thank you to all the members of the website that have participated over the years since I started the website in January of 2005. I have found some lifelong friends here and I hope you have had that experience as well. I am thinking specifically today of Topsail Angler (Mike), Lefty (Kevin) and Fojoloy (Forrest) who were friends that I met here who have since gone home to be with the Lord. I am also thinking of those members who have volunteered over the years to serve as Moderators to assist me in keeping the website a family-friendly and civil one. Jeffonc, lewisfishing, trigger22 and wademaster, you guys have at times endured a lot and I cannot thank you enough for your service and friendship.

    In closing, I am going to step away all together from the website since they have made this decision for me. It will give me more time to spend on a couple of other websites I've created and hopefully some time for fishing.

    I wish you all well and tight lines!

    Blessings
    Randy

    Thank you once again, your efforts here have touched the lives of more people than you will ever know. My biggest regret about my time here is that I was never at a meet and greet that you were able to attend. Stay in touch, and if your ever in the edge of the mountains let me know.

    Thanks Darrell for all your support over the years. We are trying to plan a trip to the mountains now. If we get by your way I'll definitely let you know. I need to stop by to see Wademaster too!

    Randy, thank you for everything that youíve put into this site to make it what it is today. While it is on a downward slope activity wise lime all forums are, at its peak this was no doubt one of the best forums on the web and thatís thanks to you and your guidelines. I hope we can get together and fish soon.

    I am a relative newcomer to this site (2 years) but have enjoyed it immensely and have learned a lot from these very knowledgeable fisher folk. Thank you so much for starting up the site and your services since.

    Thanks, Randy. Canít stand this, but everything happens for a reason. I know, itís cliche but you are on to bigger things.

    It has been my honor to help you here and I hope that at some point we can meet in the future.

    Take care and God bless!

    Randy, this is really sad news that we have lost the person who made this site and kept it family friendly. I have no family to speak of but have met people on here that have become the best family I could ask for. If not for you I would not have this special group of people that Iím proud to call my brothers & sisters.

    I sincerely hope you check in once in awhile with a fishing report or just to say hi. You will be missed greatly.

    With you having to leave us I hope this does not turn into a Facebook type of atmosphere and ruin what we have now.

    Thanks for the memories, been a member since 2009. I don't fish much right now but it is nice to come and live vicariously through others. Best wishes in your future endeavors.
