We are first and foremost a gun forum.

 

We owe it to our Business Members and contributors to keep it that way.

 

Please keep Politics and smack talk in proper forums......(I will do the same)

 

Also, take a moment to review rule #5

 

5. NO TROLLING!!!

Do not post any negative remarks toward the other members or items they have for sale! The feedback section is the appropriate section for such posts!

I'm not trying to be a jerk, I'm just honestly wondering what constitutes trolling. I.E. is posting a different viewpoint, that some might react angrily towards, trolling? I know some here are very emotional and react to certain viewpoints a certain way.

Sorry about posting the news of the lawsuit in the wrong category, I just wanted to add the information close to a previous post. I think you Mods do a great job and don't really get any thanks for it, so Thank you all for doing a great job.

was not directed toward anyone in particular....

Just trying to bring everyone back to "zero" is all...

 

We have a political forum and fight club..... plenty of room to play and say your piece....

 

Folks just need to use self control in regards to emotional reactions and or purposely stating things in a way to get an emotional reaction... Esp. in the general forum...

I think a good way to say it is that its not OK to put a leash on people in general, but its damn well ok to put a fence around your yard.

 

It is difficult enough for me to keep on on the market trends and products and people's interests on here as it is, I cant imagine how hard moderating here has become. who knows what the fuck is where, really?

 

Some order is in order. It aint up to me or anything, but it is really hard to get things done when stuff is scattered all over the place, whatever you may be doing.

and thus you once again demonstrate your superior moderating skills Brother Juggs. Hopefully we will all get the hint and not post things where they have to be moved. I know that 1911 and Bounce have the message loud and clear. :)

Good idea, it appears that once you have attained momentum you cannot be stopped.

Now that is funny! :lolol:

My thoughts on these "TROLLS" are this, when folks are having dialogue and some jerk deliberately places inflammatory statements to provoke vehement responses, and this individual is found to be "trolling around" various threads continually doing this, shouldn't the mods give warnings to them? And if they continue, how many warnings does it take to ban, or suspend them? Or is that even done? I've never belonged to an internet forum before so please excuse my ignorance, but I would like to know, for my own good, how this works. :smoke:

I normally let a lot of things fly...

I fuigure most here are grown and can hold their own in a conversation....

"cream rises to the top" kind of thing....

If someone gets out of hand, I normally get a PM about it... make a judgment call from there....

 

Sometimes, I'll make a bad one... Heck, I'm only human....

 

Verbal warnings, first...

If there is continued disturbances in the force... Disrespect to Business Member or a fellow Mod..

(I'm not talking about political disagreements... Kinda along the same lines as "don't flip off the cop"...)

that will lead to suspension....

Max is the only person around here with the authority to ban people....

 

I'm not stating that people can't voice their opinions... in fact.. I want them too..

BUT, if people want to find firearm info, they shouldn't have to sift through a ton of political crap to do it....

The reason we created fight club/political sub forums in the first place.....

 

Granted, it's a hard to have discussions about guns in the first place without getting a little political...

The key word here is "Focus".... Guns first in the main section....

 

If somebody is out of hand & needs to get curb stomped... Please R.A.P.

 

Thanks All!!!

Nice try Juggs but this thread will be completely ignored just like most of the other sticky threads...

 

As long as it says this in the header...>>> WELCOME > General Discussion - Any topic is welcome here!!!

 

There are a lot of things in the home page here, and all over the site that need to be updated to reflect current times and the different forum this has become.

 

I'll put my two cents in on TROLLS since I probably hate them worse than anyone here....

If you have a "differing" opinion from someone and want to state your opinion, there is a fine line between politely doing so and intentionally saying something to provoke an argument...with one particular person whom you know may react a certain way...or with a whole group of people. Trolls KNOW who they are, and so does the majority here. If you are an instigator who gets your jollies by floating an air biscuit here for everyone to smell and comment on, then YOU are a troll. You don't have to agree with everything you read here, but you damn sure don't have to make a habit of arguing and bitching about everything you see here. If you don't like it here then just go away.

Some folks will have to learn the HARD WAY....

There are already a few folks on "Vacation" for not controlling themselves...

None for political points of view....

 

Lets see how quiet things are this week... should be telling one way or another...

I think overall, we have been pretty well behaved towards each other here.

Sure we get out of line occasionally, but it is very refreshing to be able to come onto a forums site and say what you want, serious or not serious, without some sand in the vagina type crying to the site owner!

How about making the political forum non-password protected? After all, it's politics, a legitimate topic for discussion. No porn in there...

 

Fight Club keep locked, it's stupid as hell to even have that one...

Just think of Fight Club as a roach trap. If you can lure the roaches in there they can eat each other and not spread their disease here.
