The thread in question is this:

The mischaracterization of my posts in this thread as put forth by Sianblooz.
Sianblooz wrote, Page 4:
First you say a child who gets caught in a conibear trap is stupid. Then you say trappers should be able to hide traps so people cannot find them except by accidentally tripping it.
Now, what I actually said was this (Page 2, same thread):
If a child sticks his head in a conibear trap, well, can we say Darwin?
I'll say it again...if a kid sticks his head into a conibear trap, that kid is a candidate for a Darwin Award.
A Darwin Award by no means states that a person is stupid but "honors" the person for improving the gene pool by removing themselves from it in really stupid ways. We have all done really stupid actions, doesn't make anybody stupid.
Secondly, I never stated that trappers hide their traps so people cannot find them except by accidently tripping over them. Sianblooz, I challenge you to quote where I stated what you accused me of writing.
On to the next dishonest remark by Sianblooz, Page 4:
Capitalswine says I would steal the trap. He's a liar but is the possibliity of losing a trap a good reason for lying about where they are?
I never made no such statement. Here is what I said, Page 3:
Why? So people with your beliefs can steal or vandalize the trap so it can never operate again?
The above quote was in response to this by Sianblooz on Page 3:
Bottom line is the sickos who set these traps should be required to post signs informing the unsuspecting dog walker, or a family out for a NATURE walk, of the danger.
Why are they allowed to be so sneaky with traps that hurt, maim and kill ? Is it really so much to ask that they be FORCED to own up to what they do? Why do we let these sickos get away with this?
For some people who share Sianblooz's beliefs, that being vehemently opposed to trapping, it is not above those particular individuals to steal or permanently damage a trap. At no point in time did I ever write that Sianblooz would steal or vandalize a trap.
To read my response is that the trapper does not place signs stating that he has traps set in a particular area because some people who share Sianblooz's beliefs may steal or vandalize those traps.
It is implied that respect is paramount on this board. I have given you nothing but respect, Sianblooz, yet you have misrepresented and mischaracterized my position and my posts. In addition your have flat-out declared me to be a liar.
I will not take these false accusations and attacks lying down. I expect an immediate retraction of your false claims. Thank you.
