    From the post WWB started about stepping back. Does this mean addicts is done. I've been a member for awhile and love the forum. Made some great friends. So this June will it be the 1st annual fanatics shoot. I'm a member of fanatics but I still like it here.

    Does this mean my trophy points have no value?

    Just remember. Here, you are now the product. Your eyeballs for advertisers.

    That’s what I’ve been told but I have not seen any ads here, although as a paying fanatic I do see ads pop up on the top of my pages there??? Maybe once more people become paying members? Don’t know what the deal is.

    All the data gets sold. Whether you see it in an overt fashion, or otherwise. I was a mod at another site that was sold two years ago.

    Dear Forum Overlords: I would spend good Yankee dollars if Springfield Armory brought back its full line of gunsmithing services. You have my permission to share this data with SACS.

    What about the incredible treasure trove of archival information held on this site. Over the years you folks have created a data base of 1911 info and lore that is easily sourced using the search engine.

    They desire to keep away the "trailer trash", women's threads, and the majority of the members from here.

    As I stated over there. If you want to keep everyone away why the hell would you begin a new forum that is open to the public. The internet, or a forum, is not the place for people who don't like people.

    The forum has basically been bought out by Carbon Media Group, bought out took over, whatever happened imho the forum has not changed, there is no place on this interweb that our information, posts, photos, personal information etc.. Is not subject to being seen, used, taken advantage of etc.. And that includes, fanactics, addicts, 1911.com the list goes on. The Forum is the sum of it's members, this has been and imo remains the best damn 1911 forum on the internet, because it has the best damn people in the world on it. Plain and simple truth.

    And if I am going to have my information out there for anyone and everyone to see anyway, I might as well be a part of a group that has good people in it. Not to say the other groups don't, but the owner of these social media sites do not own it's members... The only change that will really take place is if everyone starts to change their attitude about the forum as a whole, there has been a ton of speculation as to what happened, why it happened, what brought it about etc...

    But, in a nutshell if I left this forum for another completely I feel like I'd be loosing some of the best damn friends a guy could ask for. I met some of you personally at the addicts shoot this year and have met other again since then. Am making arrangements and will be meeting Rob from Alchemy custom weaponry later this week. Will be meeting WWB a few weeks down the road. None of this would of been possible if it weren't for this group. I have met Babboon Bobo in person along with his lovely wife and even had them down for dinner and an afternoon of shooting. As far as I am concerned the only way this forum is done is when the good people who belong to it decide to abandon it.
