Did you receive any kind of apology?
I’m really baffled that a thread that added so much value to this forum and drove traffic to this site was deleted.
I'm confident the GlockTalk admins can still restore the thread. I've told them that I'll make whatever modifications to the thread they feel necessary. No luck. I've been told the thread "stays down".
The GlockTalk admins identified two issues ...
First, the GlockTalk admins claimed the thread gives the impression that I represent PSA. The first paragraph of the thread stated (and has always stated),
The author of this thread is not affiliated with Palmetto State Armory or any other company under the JJE Capital Holdings, LLC umbrella. The opinions expressed within the content are solely the author's and do not reflect the opinions and beliefs of Palmetto State Armory.
I'm not sure how I could've made it more clear that I don't represent PSA. A GlockTalk admin just needs to tell me what modifications to make in this regard and I'll gladly make them.
Second, the GlockTalk admins claimed that I was driving traffic off-site. On the contrary, I was driving traffic to GlockTalk. I created "aliases" in order to forward
community members to specific posts within the thread from across the Internet. For example, the alias,
forwarded community members to,
The alias was simply more human-readable and compact as compared to the cryptic post URL. The end result was exactly the same regardless of whether a community member clicked on the alias or the post URL.
I offered to delete all of the aliases and replace them with the corresponding post URL. No luck. I was told the thread "stays down".
I spent thousands of hours developing this content with the sole purpose of helping GlockTalk members and the broader Dagger community. A GlockTalk member recently referred to the thread as the "Dagger bible". I don't profit from the content in any way, shape, or form. The content was technical in nature, factual, and accurate. I would think this is the type of content GlockTalk wants. I'm equally baffled.
