Good point, i've found for sale ads in some relatively odd places...

I've also noticed that there is a growing proliferation of posters selling services and retail sales, cleverly disguised into threads, which I tend to remind the poster that to advertise on here (other than used stuff), requires you to be a paid advertiser.

I advise them and report the post to Len... Usually, the whole thread vanishes in a short time....

No one reads the 'users agreement'. It's entirely optional.

Surprisingly enough, I feel pretty darn good!

Go out and get some trigger time, it'll make you feel even better

And when you go take some water jugs, that should really lift your spirits

There is an ongoing rifle transaction being conducted for the last 2 days in the Hunting forum as we type. Nothing against the individuals or their transaction, but I'm thinking this could be handled by PM, email and/or phone

Re: Very useful tool ...

I keep considering if I should list my MG42 Sub Gun for sale. It's so darn expensive to shoot (1200-1500 rounds per minute, 8mm Mauser belt fed) that I can't afford to shoot it often.

It's legal to sell (so long as the buyer has the proper BATFE license), because it's a C&R weapon.

I have about 5,000 rounds of linked 8mm in ammunition cans which is good for a few minutes of trigger squeezing.....

Certainly a rich mans toy (I'm not rich)...lol

A 'hunting' firearm in the truest sense of the word.

Mark you're absolutely right. Maybe that's where the root of my frustration lies... I haven't pulled a trigger in far longer than I care to admit.

I've seen a handful of these scenarios; do we not have moderators anymore? I can only think of one way back when. Would be more than happy to weed out most of this crap

Re: Very useful tool ...

This is basically a user moderated forum, if you distill it down to the basics. Len and Andy both have moderator priveledge but I'm sure they don't have the time to play nanny everyday.

I moderate on an entirely different forum and it's a PITA.

Your only avenue of moderation is the little box (triangular) in the right corner of every post that takes you to a different screen so you can make Len and Andy aware of what you consider to be an undesireable post and then it's up to them to remove it or remove the thread.

Understand, when you report a post, you have to give an explaination as to why and your name.

Actually, the system 'self moderation' works pretty well, so long as people like me report violations. If no one reported anything, this forum would run amuck is short order.
