    I do not fund raise for anyone.

    I have no hidden agenda. If you think I do probably you should take it up with the mods.

    •  I'll give you that (0+ / 0-)

      I don't personally think you were "shilling" for RMEF.  I read your diaries as presenting an alternate view of conservation.  Sometimes, they do read as a little shit-stirry or as put above, "hit pieces" on environmental organizations.  

      I can't say I fully agree with that alternate view--not as much of an opinion regarding the predator stuff but more when you knock on organizations like the Sierra Club but seem to give a pass to extraction industries.  I'm not intimately familiar with western environmental politics, but I know that here in Minnesota we are facing a lot of public land mining issues coming down the pipes at us and I have a renewed appreciation for those supposedly "litigious" environmental organizations and at this point I want us to have an army of lawyers on our side since the money, politicians, and uninformed vote are all working against us.  

      That said, I might only agree with maybe 1 in 4 of your diaries (you'll know which ones, because I read most of them, but don't always tip), but they do generate traffic and provoke discussions that wouldn't otherwise happen.
