I got beat up 34 years ago, when I was a senior in high school. I was very-much a pacifist and didn't raise a hand to defend myself. I had a broken nose and the worst of my 4 concussions from the way that guy punched my face. I told myself that I would never let anything like that happen again, and I haven't. I also taught my kids to stand up for themselves.

When I was driving a cab, I was threatened a few times. There isn't time to wait for the police to save you in those situations. I adopted a policy of getting the situation under control before making any phone calls. Because of the way I carried myself, and possibly how I look, no punches were actually ever thrown. If it had ever gotten physical, I always planned on the main job for the police to be documenting that I had acted in self-defense.

I like to think I would fight like hell no matter what attacks me. I personally have no desire to fight bears though. One of the things I don't understand is that people want to "wait for the police" well most things are done before the police can happen by to help. A guy here a few months back got beat pretty bad in a bus station, the whole thing was on camera and he didn't even try to fight back. WTF

As far as I know, despite it being on camera they have yet to catch the guy who did it.

I've heard (and through googling, found) the same thing - black bears are far more easily scared off that brown bears. Also, even though they are smaller, a black bear has more of an interest in killing you for the purposes of something to eat than a brown bear does, who usually wants assurance that you are not a threat.

Signs posted in the park near our house say that if you are confronted with a black bear, pick up small children, stand up as straight as you can, flap your arms and yell. Stand your ground. If attacked, fight.

From an article I just found:

Research by noted Canadian bear scientist Stephen Herrero has documented more than 60 fatal attacks by predatory black bears in North America since 1900. The attacks tend to happen in rural areas, where bears appear to have had little or limited previous contact with humans.

Herrero and other authorities advise that if you are approached by a black bear, especially in a rural area, grab the nearest weapon, even a big stick, and prepare to fight like hell.

Good, where did you come by that "generally accepted" knowledge about black bears because it directly contradicts everything I've ever seen written. With any bear you make a lot of noise and try to get as big as possible if they're not in a threatening (charging) or defensive (standing) position. If they are, you play dead, period. Doesn't matter whether it's a black bear or a grizzly.

The advice to never get in between a mother and cubs is pretty solid but I've never seen ANY reputable source recommend fighting back against a bear.

(I'm not trying to argue, I'm looking for sources of said info to compare them against the sources I'm already aware of at this time.)

Scandle, that's very odd...I hope it's easily explainable as a marketing email, just a one time issue and nothing to be concerned about. It is pretty bad timing though, considering the past weekend of "billowing smoke" coming from one dude smugly sounding off about "media crossover" going on around here that worried a few people before he disappeared.

I am just glad that the excessive capitalization is now gone, that shit hurt my eyes!

Life has been extremely full here, keeping me from spending much time perusing the forums the last couple of weeks. In answer to Wayne's question a while ago, I believe the email I received asking if I was a "real" swinger came from an SLS event organizer and arrived at my personal email, not the mailbox I have here.

Thanks for the warning. I think I'll put the same level of care into my internet postings as you seem to, weather it's needed or not.
