    Naughty boy! :rofl2:

    No good deed goes unpunished!

    It has to be one of the 2,either org or.com.

    In either instance they are poorer for their decision.

    I never really stuck around that message board because few people DID have anything to say to the N00bs. At least the new folks who were also new to 1911's. I've been on message boards for over ten years now, and I get it to a degree. On a reptile forum I used to frequent, it did sometimes get really old having new folks asking the same questions over and over, but that's what stickies are for...

    I have also never understood forums that ban members so readily. Spam, trolls, and a-holes, sure. But some admins/mods are so zealous to call people out for infractions and technicalities. The following is a true story: I was in the market for a really nice electric razor a few years back. I Googled and ran across a forum called electric razor rap. Browsed for a minute, and signed up/introduced myself. One of their rules was "Absolutely no discussion of blade shaving." Seems odd, but fair enough. So I found thread about choosing a brand, and asked about a certain model everyone said shaved so close and I asked if it was comparable to a regular Gillette Mach 3. I received a ridiculously stern warning from the site owner and was told I would be banned if I discussed blade shaving again. I wrote back that I misunderstood and wasn't trying to cause any problems, once I picked a razor, I doubted I'd be around to discuss it much other than to maybe give it a review. Two weeks later, there were a couple of funny guys there and in another discussion, I made the fatal mistake of using the words "razor blade," while joking about how expensive they had gotten. I was banned. Six years later and I still shave with a blade.

    I think members will police themselves pretty well if you have a group of mature regulars. There will always be the overnight experts and blowhards, but that comes with the territory. Probably the only thing that really irks me is a sub-type of overnight expert, the one who asks what to get, gets something, then declares to everyone who comes along later that his choice is superior in every way. I've seen that in everything from reptiles to power tools to guns. I've seen that one almost as many times as I've seen cigarette butts thrown from a Toyota Prius.

    Well - I'm not sure why they don't just close the site down to the people that are in the clique, lemmings, sheep - Stop the absurdity of pretending they have an open forum, it's a closed forum - but they just don't tell anyone that, why, I'm not sure, been so long since I've been over there do they have advertisors if so that would be a reason.


    Who gives a rat's ass anyway F' them...!!!

    AGREE. I was recently banned from .org for posting in the wrong section. They have more "EFFIN" rules making that site so convoluted you need a play book to keep track of all the "RULES". Then argued with the forum administrator regarding the ridiculousness of stacking on points for nonsense, taking away avatars etc. It's kind of like "Romper Room"; don't play within the rules and they take away your crayons. I mentioned how other sites would merely move your posting without beating you up over it AND came home after work to find out this pr*ck had sent me 4 emails each one with a new infraction in it totaling up points...the final email informed me that I was BANNED FOREVER. So after I got done laughing I sent him my final email.
