So, without going into the merits of asking WHY, am I right in assuming that both Benri and Freedive here knew about this but didn't post this information online?
Some ppl here seem to take exception to what is written here. But guys, come on. Did you expect me not to say anything
. You knew about this, and no one had the decency of coming on to the forum and informing everyone about this. What kind of a society do you subscribe to
You wanted to keep this to yourself, so you could take one and all??...I cannot understand this. 3 years ago I left it until the last day to apply for the recreational BFT permit. When I went to apply, the lady behind the desk said, "thank God, at last someone turned up to apply". I asked if I was the first one, and the lady confirmed. I immediately called Skip, informed him about this, and he immediately got on the phone a called a number of ppl here, informing them that it was the last day to apply for a BFT permit. That is the way things are done. http://maltafishingforum.com/talk/index.php/topic,2940.15.html
Knowing that the notice to apply for a BFT permit is out, and having knowledge that not everyone knows about it, and not doing anything about it, is cheap and low.MAY I REMIND ONE AND ALL THAT IT WAS THE FORUM WHO NEGOTIATED WITH THE FISHERIES TO GRANT A TEMPORARY PERMIT TO CATCH BLUEFIN TUNA ON A RESTRICTED QUOTA.
Aw xihud aw jiehdu ghalijhom meta tinkiteb xi haga dwarhom. Imma ejja gbin, hsibtu li ha taghmlu mossa bhal dik u jien ma nghid xejn?
Kontu tafu li hargu l-applikazzjonijiet ghal permessi tat-tonn, u zammejtu kollox ghalikom, minghajr ma kelkom id-dicenza tigu fuq il-forum u ixxandruha!! Intom x'tip ta nies intom?
3 snin ilu hallejt ghal ahhar biex naplika jien. Meta mort, it-tfajla li kienet qed tilqa l-applikazzjonijiet qaltli "ejja, f'hajja t'Alla, fl-ahhar gie xi hadd" ghedtilha nmela hadd ma applika, qaltli le!!. Mill-ewwel cempilt lil Skip, u ghedtlu isma Nick, ahjar tavza naqa lil membriu taghna, ghax hadd ghadu ma applika. Naf li Nick tefa post fuq il-forum u cempel lil xi nies ukoll. Hekk immorru l-affarijiet. Li taf li hargu l-applikazjonijiet, u ma tavzax biex minghalik ittellef ic-cans lil hadd iehor, huwa att kodard u baxx.NIXTIEQ INFAKKAR AW LI KIEN IL-FORUM LI NEGOZJA MAL-FISHERIES BIEX TIBDA DIN L-INIZJATIVA TA PERMESS RISTRIT BIL-QUOTA GHAL SAJD TAT-TONN GHAD DELLETANTI
