    And just exactly how do you figure we'll know ahead of time what someone is going to post? When you see something like that, immediately use the "report this psot to a moderator function" and we'll take care of it, and also warn the offender.

    Well, if it's in one of my forums (GG, GNG, 1911, CA Glockers) I can take care of it, if you give me a link to it. If it isn't in one of those forums and assuming you or someone has used the report this post function, a moderator for that forum will eventually take care of it.

    You have to remember that we have 65K+ members and thousands of posts daily, so we can't be everywhere at the same time. Plus, as volunteers, we sandwich our moderator duties into our real lives, so sometimes we don't get to a problem right away. I'm sure you can understand that.

    Fred,

    Again I wasnt clear on this. I was speaking of both a specific thread and threads in general.

    BTW Here is an example of what I am referring too:

    Look, you know what the rules here are. You read them when you signed up. Why don't you dial back the ire a little and try to remember that you are a guest here enjoying our hospitality and our resources. We are doing the best we can.

    More than 60,000 messages get posted here every week. We can't possibly read every one of them. If you see a problem thread, don't assume that we know about it and are doing nothing. Use the built in reporting system to report it and we will deal with the problems as they arise. We can't fix it if we do not know it is broken. Eric

    Didnt mean to get you worked up Eric, I did report it. My point was that there are a number who are allowed to go overboard with posts and even sigs and I was trying to understand why. It was brought to your attention and so I have no reason to continue this discussion.
    Thanks.

    Post a link to it here. There are a few million posts here and I do not have time to search for it. Eric
