Last time I checked, it was free to post here. That means if the people who DO pay for it (the mods and Eric) say cut it out, people should just cut it out because they (the mods and Eric) provide it for us by their own good graces. Some of the arguments are really silly.

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.

I don't get why people argue about calibers.... An SJ ESC round from a 9mm can be better than a .40 ball. And a .22lr can still stop an attacker.

The level of one-upsmanship on this board is unprecedented.
Also,I really don't understand how grown men can have fits or cry over something so worthless as an internet discussion.
Some people take themselves far too seriously.

thank you

Ed thanks for taking charge, what kills me is we have people that are very new to guns, let alone caliber differ. which we all were at one time, they want help and advise, and it may seem that their questions are stupid, they are not stupid to the poor guy that6 needs advice, and somefloks will argue with the newbee, and make them feel foolish, this stuff needs to stop,if a guy needs help then help him....thanks mike

Well no blood no foul eh?

GT is for entertainment - therefore the stress lvl should be low. If any wants to raise their BP then it is more entertainment for me - let it go, if one doesn't want to read it then don't. Of course as long as the content is kept at the wee lads and lasses lvl.

This thread is a great example of stress manangment

Since I have been a member I have basically stuck with 10mm & rimfire forums and have rather enjoyed the company and info gleamed at this sight. To my knowledge I have never been berated, insulted or done that to anyone here on the forum.

In the past I have left one forum because of overbearing moderators that gave public points and private belittlings when posting in a wrong section, or taking a thread off topic for one semi related question or comment. They did on one occasion even give me points (better word is demerits) when I challanged a moderators rulling in a private message like the PM they sent me telling me what I had done wrong and if I wanted to rebuttle where to rebuttle. I have since had two emails telling me I was missed and to come back, but I took my 40 years experience with that one gun and left and will never return.

That said I have left several because of too much name calling, baiting and general trolling by some members without moderators trying to correct problems.

But here I seem to have found a home even though I do not own a Glock and most likely never will. Unless I break down and buy a little 10 mm G29 for carrying in the car consoul which is rather small and just barely holds my S&W J frame. But to be honest the good people here on the 10 Ring have really got me thinking about buying a G29 this summer for my car gun. I probably would have bought one already if I could just convince myself to spend that much money for a gun that will spend 99.9% of the time stored in the car and seldom shot.

Why seldom shoot you ask? The cost of just reloading is getting hard to handle when even with reloading it cost almost 20 cents to send a round down range. Because of that I have been doing something I have not done in years and that is 22 rimfire shooting. Even bought 2 new rimfires and one used model to plink with at the range.

I just found this forum but am on many others some in a moderator position. We have the same issues there as i have read about here. it pretty much comes down to this quote we use over there:

" Arguing on the internet is like running in the special olympics, even if you win your still retarded. "


Over there we also dont like to ban what we have found is a 7 day ban will most of the time cool them off and if it starts back up there gonefor good . Just an idea i dont know if you have the temp ban option on here.

Just make sure you say "you're", and not 'your still ret***' -- basic grammar errors like that make you look foolish when you're trying to look witty

You know I started to comment about it and got a phone call and when I came back I just posted instead of finishing.

Guess I am getting old, I have been doing some really stupid things of late.

People, I had to bail from this forum for a long time because of the lack of common decency and common respect I received on numerous occasions here at Glock Talk. I'm glad that Eddie put the hammer down. This place just started to become a place full of wise***es. We all can learn alot from each other.
Walter Ga got the boot? I used to like that guy.....

Thanks Eddie!
P.S. still shooting the .45 super?

separate forum for trolls

I am a gold member of a auto forum. What they did was open up an argument forum. so if there was a disagreement by trolls, they could go there and argue back and forth. Not only was this helpful and kept the boards from filling up with bs, it also provided entertainment. Now for the newbies, which I am to this forum. I didnt see an introduction forum or newbie forum yet, Maybe I am missing it. This is a great place to introduce and ask "stupid" questions.

I thought all was good once WalterGA left.

Guess all i had to do was log on and see the rules thing to understand that there are problem posters on GT and they are not even informative, wise, or funny.

It has grown though. and with growth there will be a higher percentage of problems - possibly real problems now.

I am willing to bet the biggest problems are the uneducated, unwise, up-with their self, those not ready for the big boys and get their feelings hurt crowd.

Basically ones to be ignored or booted. More rules to them are just more rules to break. Maybe they are worth something by keeping the tissue makers making tissue?

Best on your quest to make nice.

I may have to get some more popcorn and tune in to this thread more often. Getting as good as the Military Chanel.

10mm, isn't that a .40 long?

Just kidding, don't have a cow.

I try to be civil, but a troll is a troll, and some are good at what
they do.......cause trouble.
