    No joke. I've been in and out over the weekend, and haven't posted much, but just wow. Was it a full moon or something?

    Feel for you mods...

    You know... now that you mention it, it was.... I think it was some sort of special full moon as well,,, closest to the earth or something...

    Maybe that's what happened....

    Everywhere I go, it seems people bitch about how General Discussion poisons the entire board, etc.

    Trouble is, no matter the main topic, you can't discuss guns/cars/hats/whatever all the time. GD becomes like the electronic pub where you can bitch about everything.

    I know some boards have an unmoderated forum for pissing contests and what-have-you, while keeping GD civil and clean.

    Maybe there needs to be a "basement" for hurling invectives (love that phrase ).

    Just a thought.

    I find it philisophically repulsive. I only did it one time when some goofball claimed to have purchased a full auto Colt at Walmart.

    I much more respect someone who will take an issue with me directly that someone who hits the rat face button. Are we men or bitches?

    I feel like you're talking about me, and movies.

    I had someone tell me that "I did not know sh*t" and was "totally clueless" in one thread.

    A person I had zero prior dealings with...nor was my post meant to incite anyone.

    Instead of arguing back and forth and calling names...I just dropped out of the thread.

    There is no reason to argue with someone that insults people they do not even know nor have they ever conversed with in any threads.

    Some people were just not raised right.

    Since they are not my children...it is not my place to try to teach them manners.

    True enough, but you have to keep in mind that many battles you encounter here may not happen to involve you personally. Third-party reporting is actually a very effective means of letting the staff know that a storm front is sitting atop a particular thread, and that it needs to be addressed -- without respect for who is or is not actually engaged in the fight.

    I'll fight those little rats too!

    Nah... I don't see 1/10th the problems here that ARF has. The GD here does cause people to lose their minds for whatever reason.

    I only go in there when the actual GUN TALK is really slow.

    What goes on here will NEVER come close to topping Glock Talk.

    For a real lesson in how some adults never learned manners or grammar...one needs only to visit that forum! LOL
