You have voluntarily joined a brotherhood of like-minded men and women, of your own free will. We are all here to learn, teach and share on a topic that we all take pride in being part of. As a continuous and rapidly growing community, we are in a constant struggle to maintain order and structure. We are a fluid group, as we attempt to keep up with a forever evolving subject matter.

Our community is small, but tighter than any other in existence. We have members who’ve traveled thousands of miles to just go shooting with another member. Mild acquaintances have evolved into strong family bonds that have invited attendance to graduations and coming-home events. We’ve seen members families off on deployment, and stayed around to welcome them home after a tour. A screen name is replaced by a real name, and added to a wedding guest registry. We’ve even mourned the loss of member after his passing. This kind of bond ONLY happens HERE.

All new comers are screened by our staff, not to separate, but to assist. A history of our forum, a description of our banter and antics and a warning of etiquette are commonplace for new comers who have trouble “fitting in” at first. A personal PM from our staff, combined with a warm welcome to the forum.

Understand that we have the expectation that as adults, you will act and react as an adult. While our shenanigans and tomfoolery may be childish, our morals and maturity must be unwavering.

No one is above this, and even our longest standing and greatest contributing members have been subject to correction and faced the wrath of a nine-fingered Yeti (you’ll have to stick around to understand that inside joke). We do not attack, nor do we allow attacks, on our members… but if you act with malice, hostility, meanness, or nastiness, expect to be called out to explain yourself… and clean up your own mess.

We welcome all who wish to be a positive contribution to our growing family.

BUT…

IF YOU CAN’T FIGURE HOW TO HANDLE A SITUATION, THAT IS LITERALLY JUST A BUNCH OF WORDS ON YOUR COMPUTER SCREEN…

IF YOU CAN’T SUCK UP YOUR PRIDE AND SELF RIGHTEOUSNESS FOR JUST A FEW MOMENTS AND COME TO THE UNDERSTANDING THAT YOU MAY NOT BE CORRECT…

IF YOU LACK THE COMMUNICATION SKILLS TO HAVE PEACEFUL DISCOURSE, WITHOUT RESORTING TO INSULTS, NAME-CALLING OR OTHER IDIOCY…

Kindly work your way towards the nearest exit and let yourself out. You will not be missed.

AND…

In the situation where one fails to take the gentleman’s way out, your words and behavior are etched on our boards forever, never to be censored and to be forever a reminder to new comers. After the ban hammer drops, you will never again be able to rejoin our dinner table. Depending on the circumstances you might not even be able to view our pages again.

You, of all people, especially in this situation…

YOU WILL NOT BE MISSED.

I wrote that almost 3 1/2 years ago… And I still laugh every time I read it


#3

So we’re allowed to edit this? Is it public yet?


#4

Yes,yes upper right wiki box, have at it :sunglasses:


#5

I am not editing this. Not one inch. I like it just the way it is.


#6

I edited it a little. I don’t think I changed the message at all. Just delivered with less venom. Took out the 308AR comment, since it’s Full30.


#7

I 'm not editing anything, but it’s a long way of saying: “Yeah, whatever, B’Bye”

:kiss:


#8

I think the original text as written was perfect & well done! However, if there is no enforcement by management, it or any other statement is utterly useless!


#9

I’m not married to the changes I made. Feel free to change it back. Seems most of you like the way it was. Must be a guy thing.
(Edit) I know that seems snarky. It’s not meant that way. I really have no problem with changing it and I think the way it was worded must appeal to men in some way. That’s all it means.


#10

We need a Lady’s touch even if we say different :sunglasses:


#11

I agree, but I don’t want to get the banned hammed ether.


#12

Guys behave better when face to face. Your right It’s a guy thing.


#13

I like it… I write worse on my own pages. Hahahhaha


#14

I agree.

I may have redirected an IP address, or two or three, to some “unmentionable” websites. I don’t just “ban”… I exile IP addresses to the furthest reaches of the Internet.

A few times I’ve had issues with banned subjects making burner profiles just to spew diarrhea about how it’s their choice to leave and not mine. I save a special kind of treatment just for those individuals. Anytime that IP address tries to log back into our website, they are instantly sent to wherever I redirect them…

And I can be very creative about which sites I choose.


#15

Oh man… I wish I knew how to do that.

@Robocop1051
Lmfao😂 excellent!
Crossdressing homosexual Abarigini midgets gone wild?


#17

You know how our phones track us and listen in? I really try to throw my phone for a loop. I ask about donkey porn, midgets and Crisco, eating pets, and where to find slobbering lobsters.
Well… I have a lot of cat litter ads because the shop’s mascot is a “cat” fish… and I get a lot of ads for churches that can save me…

:joy::rofl::sweat_smile:


#19

See, I think I am strange enough that most people keep me around just because it would be hard of a day with out me there… lurking… video taping… there… every… single… move…
Bad Cat is my buddy. Who would possibly want to delete him?
Personally I LOVE bringing out the ban hammer. It is good to crush soles and egos.
This guy is / was a tool. First time to see this here though. Glad it doesn’t happen often. Hahahaha
Ok, back to the chaos
