I wasn't trying to "steal" members, I was creating up a site for Boston boaters and fishermen at the same time I found this site.
The site is aimed directly at local people unlike this site, seemingly points to all areas and locations.
I like this site a lot, it seems very informative, and I plan on staying and hopefully contributing in a helpful way.
I just thought I would spread the word about my new local site.
Taking the link down is fine with me, but I don't think you need to worry about losing members because of it.
