Here's the deal. It's real simple. FullClip violated the rules. The consensus was and still is, he earned a time out.
A decision to ban is not made by just one person. The member's posting history is reviewed including posts reported by other members, previous warnings, responses to those communications, the seriousness of the infractions, and the impact the member's behavior has on other members and the well-being of the community. Input is requested from staff members based on the facts presented. A recommendation is made. An Admin reviews the case and decides what action to take. In FullClip's case, the Admin agreed with the 30-day vacation.
As to why FUllClip is on vacation, we just do not discuss a member's behavior that resulted in the sanction with other members.
Some have used this thread to voice displeasure with Glock Talk from the owners down to not being able to use nicknames for politicians. If you find the site so egregious that you spend time posting how bad things are, please go ahead and leave before that decision is made for you.
If you have a legitimate grievance or idea to improve GT, PM an Admin or Moderator. In many cases, we have and can work it out.
All y'all Stay Safe...
ps: Rule #8. Do NOT reopen or start new threads pertaining to subjects that had previous threads closed.
