ive been banned

I was banned on the fireline fourm because i posted a couple links to petitions to sign to let people know your thoughts on future gun control issues. I posted it and the post was locked and i told the moderator that i couldnt see any logical reason that he would lock a post like that. Ive chuckled in the past at that same moderator closing posts just because he didnt agree with someones opinion. Kind of comical how big some peoples egos are!! Sure no loss to me. I kind of feel like an outlaw as its the first time ive ever been banned from a fourm!

You been a member over there for what 7yrs now and know the rules. Art did post reason for lock on your post as he's done with others he's locked. I'm not sure why you didn't check first would of been pretty simple.

Re: ive been banned

tom ive been pmed a couple times by moderators on differnt forums to correct or change a post that violated a rule but never banned. Im a moderator myself on a couple fourms. My job as a moderator is to insure that the fourm doesnt have vulgar language or pornography and to stop any personal fighting between members. Its not to impose my own opinions. Ive never once had to ban anyone. A short pm was about all that was ever needed. What upsets me isnt being banned. Believe me i slept just fine last night. what upset me was he decided on his own that we as gun owners shouldnt put the fight to keep our guns at the top of our priotity list. All i posted was two links to a couple petitions to sign. I didnt swear or call someone a name. I didnt tell anyone they had to sign them or how they should be thinking. I just put something out there that would benifit all of us gun owners. I posted those same links on about 5 other sites and was thanked by many for doing it.

I go on many sites. Some even an experienced loader and shooter can gain lots of info from. This is one of them and the cast bullet.com fourm is another. Most of them though dont have the level of experienced people this one does and i go mostly to help other people get STRAIGHT unbiased answers to there questions. Ill not miss a thing being banned on that one. Ive probably owned more guns, loaded more ammo, casted more bullets and shoot more ammo then the moderators on that fourm have even seen. Ive clashed with him before and i think thats the reason. A bit more ego then experience. His way or the highway. If your one that can deal with that go for it. Me ill continue to post on other fourms and if you look around the diffenent forums youll see that im pretty much respected as a guy that tells it like it is and only post on what he knows. What i wont do is keep my mouth shut about an issue this important to all of us or kiss any moderators hind end!!! and sure dont expect anyone to kiss mine!! Like i said im sure not loosing any sleep over this. As a matter of fact its given me a good chuckle or two and if i look at all the pms and emails ive gotten over it it looks like its given quite a few others a good chuckle too.

Re: ive been banned

Lloyd, Your not much into reading rules and one thing about this site were more or less unspoken word that we obey the ones here and we self police.

Case you didn't read rule # 10 here it is

No political posts of any kind including 2nd amendment topics. It’s too bad but all of these political topics have become too divisive for the members.

As more member join maybe we need more controls and locks on post and your one reason this may happen.

If you missed reading the rules here they are

It's not a matter of "if" you did wrong. It's a fact.

While gun control issues need to be discussed, not here.
