    I saw you locked the Post concerning PP's remarks and I just wanted to commend you and a wonderful opportunity you and your moderators are offering us, the public, your guests.

    I have had the opportunity to deal with you and patricia in the past over personal matters and I wish to say you have ALWAYS been fair in judgments and requests.

    So, this is just a thank you. I have learned so much and met such a divirsity of people on this board and can't thank you enough.

    Please keep up the good work and don't let the sarcastic ones get you down.
    Sincerely,
    Sharyn

    Hi folks. I want you to know I appreciate the votes of confidence and support. Both the ones I received publicly and the many I received privately.

    This isn't the first time I have had to deal with a situation like this and I'm sure it won't be the last. Some people just don't get it. You get what you give.

    I wanted to let everyone know that I banned PACKIN'PLASTIC this morning. I don't usually announce something like this, but PP strikes me as the sort that will make a big stink about it and I wanted to get my reasons for banning him on record. I did not ban him for taking shots at me. This isn't the first time he has done so and I feel that it comes with the territory, for better or for worse. Him taking shots at other members here is another story. He said some really mean things about a couple of other members here this morning, in a message I deleted from this thread, and I think he will continue to snipe at others, if I allow him to stay. I regret having to take this action, but I feel he left me no choice. He will feel differently, I am sure.

    Anyway, sorry for the trouble...Eric

    Hi Eric...I'm more of a lurker here, not posting as often as most...but as a moderator on another (and completely unrelated, different hobby) I can appreciate the decision you had to make. I appreciate the effort that you & your other mods put in here...keep up the good work.

    Chris

    Ditto to all the above, Eric!

    PP just seemed to have an eternal chip on his shoulder - or maybe he's just one of those that gets off on offending others...

    I've quit posting in a couple of forums because of the lack of common decency towards others. In real life, people walking down the street tend to to maintain a certain level of decency towards those around them. The cause of this may be traced towards the fact that if you say something extremely rude to someone without sufficient cause, you may get your lights punched out, etc.

    The Internet changes all of this. People who are typically meek and mild suddenly become brazen and outspoken. They can demean and insult others freely without risk of retribution for their ill behavior.

    I find it refreshing that the moderators of GlockTalk maintain decorum and propriety.

    Yeah, and he can even kick off his SHOES and hijack your one man thread! ;f

    It could be that Eric is the keeper of the "MASTER PLAN", but we'll never tell. ;P
