    Forum Rules

    I'm not big on rules, usually common sense will do for me. But common sense isn't that common anymore so here are some suggestions:

    1. Be courteous.
    2. No bigotry.
    3. Have fun.

    And please keep in mind that young children of some of the other forum members also read this forum. Refrain from using profanity or posting obscene photographs.

Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination are omnipotent. The slogan press on has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race. No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave." -- John Calvin Coolidge

    Sounds more than fair to me.

    If you want to solve 99% of any issue regarding #2, no bigotry, make this forum "gun only" discussion. There are plenty of other boards, to include other gun boards in which I participate on "touchy issues", that allow those type of discussions.

    I think it's a good idea in theory but I've been to a few boards that had such a hard rule and it ended up alienating a lot of otherwise productive contributors.

    A forum is a community and when you get to know each other people tend to want to talk about other stuff. I think it's a bit too heavy handed to prevent minor chit-chat. It might be good for the forum in theory but from my experience it doesn't work too well in practice. People are social animals by nature (at least most of us, hehe, there are a lot of ogres out there too).

    I have added the ability for you to move your own threads if you decide that you placed them in the wrong section.

    No. But it's in your best interest if you want people to understand what the heck you're saying

    people seem to get more worked up about gun issues than political/other issues. at least, the threats start rolling in once someone trash talks your babies.
