Perhaps a disclaimer next time, if your reply involves a insult, snide/snarky remark or a joke not everyone will find funny. Just keep it to yourself. Maybe that will avoid the controversy discussed here....

There is a wealth of wisdom in these two sentences....Extremely well said!

No, what we need is some posters to remain civil and respect the opinions and conclusions of others.

As for me, as long as everyone avoids questioning the motives or honesty of anyone else, it's all fair game. A bigger problem is the sanctimony of the self-anointed hall monitors who contribute nothing of substance to threads like the one at issue, but swoop down from the peanut gallery to tell all about how their sensibilities are offended.

Apparently, being offended at what was said to somebody else conveys a thrill. And somehow the following requirement is never enforced: "Don't have anything worth while contributing? Don't say anything. Let’s keep the "junk posts to a minimum"

With arbitrarily enforced rules, why would anyone waste their time participating in a discussion by offering verifiable facts and explaining how they came to their conclusion - and insisting on the same from those who disagree with them?

It's not really a discussion forum, but, rather a social club with a buy/sell page. So, contrary to the mission statement about creating a unique site, it is little different from all the other gun forums.

Let's just get back to posting gun porn pics, retelling personal anecdotes completely disconnected from the subject at hand, and endlessly repeating internet crapola as fact. The admins thank you for your cooperation.

So, is that a two lane road or a one way street you are referring to? I saw both “sides” being…let’s say…”snarky” towards each other.

This it what I was getting at. If someone is wrong (as I very well may be) the members are very capable of self policing. Certainly no sensitivity issues here other than a flat out lack of. My apologies are out as I move on back to the gun porn!

It's a simple barrel stamp? Not exactly a hill worth dying on with respect to historically life changing info (none of this really is).

I saw the thread heading for trouble and really don't know why it went on so long before action was taken. The thread should have been locked and the offending posts removed. I have communicated directly with the (two) moderators a few times over similar matters. On some occasions, the valuable content has been restored, other times not. There is no point in making personal attacks on other forum members. This is the primary problem. The moderators have a right to keep this under control, but eliminating entire threads punishes everyone. Good Shooting....
