This site used to be all about the shooting but now it's so commercial that your not allowed to talk about problems you have with suppliers if they are site sponsors. The almighty dollar trumps what this site is supposed to be about

I read your post about pacific tool and guage. I am just a regular guy that loves to hunt and shoot long range. The problem with guys like you is your just looking for a shoulder to cry on. Just like a little kid running and crying to mommy for help. You look like a real jack ass making posts on a public board like this because you mis understood the deal. It has nothing to do with problems with vendors its LACK OF PLANNING ON YOUR PART DOES NOT CONSITUTE AN EMERGENCY ON EVERYONE ELSES PART. Act like an adult and just admit you miss understood the deal pay the extra $138 dollars and suck it up no one is going to feel sorry for you.

I would be all ears to listen to what you have to say if you had a reasonable complaint. In this case you are WRONG. So before you go bashing any more companies on this board or any other board make sure you have a good reason to complain.

If you didn't like the rule you should have said something when he made it.

Len has been a peaceful person since any of us have known him and he likes a peaceful forum. Len has not changed and this is nothing new and your complaint about Len is bogus which then leads one to wonder about the validity of your original complaint which I did not bother to read.

Suck it up, we all make mistakes and we all get the bad end of the stick sometimes. I am sure I spent more money going to South Carolina pig hunting than you did with Pacific.

Strange that anyone would complain about a site and anything related to being commercial when they, and everyone else, get to use it for free and are not required to help with the costs to maintain said site in any way.

Again, this is the site rule I quoted for you and it applies to any supplier or manufacturer.

Quote:
8) There will be no threads started for the purpose of airing your problems with suppliers or manufacturers. (Complaint Threads) Handle those issues privately.
For those interested, you can see the site rules here: LongRangeHunting.com Online Magazine and Forums - FAQ

If I come to your house, I play by your rules, If I don't like them then I can graciously and politely excuse my self and leave.

If you come to my house, then you play by my rules, If you don't like them then I'd expect you graciously and politely excuse yourself and leave.

This is Len's house, then you play by his rules, It's ok if you don't like the rules as long as you follow them or you can leave but in either case be gracious and polite.

PS I don't think any of the rules are inappropriate or overbearing. Thanks for a Great Site Len and a job well done by the Moderators.

Odd how this is the least moderated board that I know of with the easiest going people and people still get there panties in a knot. I read nothing about the rule being just for paid sponsors but any company your having a problem with so there doesn't seem to be any relation to sponsorship and having to be a big boy on a free public forum.
Len's living room Len's rules, we should be grateful guests!!!
