No need to lash out at me for thinking the mods are doing a good job.

There are 3 or 4 people that are insulting, rude and generally unpleasant on a regular basis and it is about time they were dealt with. Cobranx was one of them. Hell, there is another guy that does nothing but post stupid photos and barely contributes anything at all.

Needing to be right doesnt have to override the need to be civil. If a few people need to get banned for this to be learned, oh well.

If I am out of line, and I get a warning, then hopefully that is all I need to change my habits. Lashing out at other posters just makes warnings more valid.

I have found since I started using the ignore feature with 2 people my stress level has gone down 99%.

You want things to be smooth? closing a post without posting a reason makes people ask why with good reason so just post in there why it is so we all know. I am not the only person that asks why


And just have a sticky with the posting rules in all forums so people know what there doing wrong makes life easy, and tracking who is doing what wrong makes sure someone does not get banned without just reason.

Complaints should be handled with PMs and should be kept more private then publically calling out a moderator to squabble about why something was done a certain way.

I just don't understand why it seems so hard for some people to follow the rules here. They aren't hard, over-bearing, or intrusive. Don't be here if you don't agree with the rules.

Also realize, most of the mods have lives beyond GT. Mods aren't all nerdballs. They have bills to pay and families to support. That takes priority over everything, even us users on GT. I think it is a bit selfish to think that a moderator has to cater to the individual here. With tens of thousands of users registered it is very hard to keep tabs on everyone.
Well said.

Besides the direct insults the biggest thing that steams me are those that refuse to read AND understand a post and attribute meanings that just werent there. Plus there are a few who must do nothing but sit and lurk in the shadows waiting to make a smart alek remark. These are the trouble makers IMHO.

Man, I would hate to see anyone get banned. The truth be told, I enjoy hearing people's opinions AND seeing some of the opinions get shot down with cold hard facts.

Alaska Po Po and Mohha don't need outside people adding fire to their debates. I enjoy reading the exchanges and when both of you get real and stick to the facts. It is informative.

I really believe I would love to hang out with both of you!

Anyway, I see Mohha as a "been there done that" person who has lot's of wisdom from his experience and mistakes we can all learn from.

I see AK PoPo as a pretty cool guy "for LE" who has done his home work and has worked hard for the answers we all seek. Is he always right? None of us are, but he tries real hard to come up with all the answers.

When you all make it personal and take jabs at each other, I believe that is where the thin ice appears. You both have old wounds and it is too easy for you all to get started. I have seen each of you take the first jab so no one holds the moral high ground IMHO.

I'm saying this as a peace maker because I would miss you fellers if the ax was to fall.

I believe the frustation stems from the fact that ballistics does not have concrete explanations of what caliber and ammo is best to stop any attacker.

We are lucky that we live in a time where we all have so many choices and would explain why at one time or another we have all become confused or at least misled down the ballistic trail we all travel.

We are all seekers of the perfect gun and load. I want to believe what the data indicates because light and fast is easier to shoot with more capacity. I want to believe I don't have to carry a cannon to get the job done.

The sad truth is, just hold the rounds in your hand and look for yourself. Common sense should tell ourselves something as well. Deep down we know it. We just can't prove it.

I think this is my first time posting on this forum. As a rule, I read the rules, the stickies and then as much of pages 1-4 as I can stand, or going back a few weeks.


My second post will be a new thread on some ammo I received...it looks like a disproportionate amount of the ammo is suffering from set back.

'Drew out and about.

It just feeds the cycle of ignorance. Feel free to PM me concerning this matter as I'd love to express my views...
Quite frankly, I've never understood caliber wars. Nor have I understood religious wars. Or the Fords vs. Chevies arguments. Maybe that's why I drive BMWs.

Cheers!

We educate ourselves on the limitations as well as the merits of a particular caliber thru this & other forums with intellegent posts & research & PRACTICE. I for one have learned a lot in a short time. Thanks for a great forum Eddie.

From what I have read the best handgun round is only 80% effective.

Not that I am owed an explanation or expect an answer, but I am kinda disappointed that a productive thread where 9 out of 10 people were behaving and many respected members were participating got closed.

Not that life is fair, but should one person's remarks, that were only 1% Of their content, shut down an entire thread and deprive many who were behaving and constructively participating?

I'm not taking a shot at the moderator, and sure are not looking to debate this issue, but many should not suffer for the actions of a few.

I hope this. "throw the baby out with the bath water" does not persist. Many people who were warned earlier where behaving really well.

It's not my intent to throw stones, I could understand how moderating caliber wars could get old and patience could wear thin.

I am just bummed because I was learning something and there were some very respected members participating adding to the validity of the discussion.

Please don't take any of these comments as disrespect for this forum.

That is the furthest from my intent.

It seems to me everyone should use the caliber/model that fits them best, depending on what you intend to use it for...i guess it all boils down to how accurate you are with your firearm. I carry a Glock 23, I have no idea as to why i like the .40 caliber but I'm extremely comfy shooting it, and never seem to stray too far. I have other pistols but i always seem to pick up the 23. My girlfriend shoots a 26 and loves it..no matter what make, model, or caliber you shoot...its almost ALWAYS fun killing cardboard isn't it?

One of the biggest things I see on Caliber Corner is certain people will continue to jump into a topic that they have nothing to add and post the same agenda fueled bashing over and over again and then sit back and play the victim to the mods.This is called Troll baiting for you guys that are new to forums.We all know what members do this and always fall into there traps,lets start just telling them ok and wacth how fast they vanish without fuel for there Troll fire.

The biggest problem we have are the internet stalkers (Trolls) who follow a poster they don't agree with or who they simply don't like from thread to thread and internet forum to internet forum just to flame him. Those same posters usually never address the original posters question either.
This place has been cleaned up a bit thanks to the moderators. The rest of us just need to act like adults and not act like trolls and internet stalkers.

And every fourm should have a sticky with the posting rules someone shouldn't have to go looking for them.

The easyer you make it for someone to fallow the rules the more they will. No one reads the rules when they sign up.
It sounds like you are giving orders and not making a request?

And maybe adding a spell checker to your postings might give you a little more authority and credence.

This is the biggest problem on Caliber Corner,it's the keyboard ballistic experts that troll these forums and are relentless with the same post over and over to start a fight.Good point made Pat we need to just act like adults and stop paying them any attention,thank you for some good advice.I just hope the mods see these people for what they really are and deal with them so GT becomes a adult like forum again.
