occasionally, some one shows up here, makes a fool of themselves and are blocked-they must think they're on another forum. The rules are enforced here and civil discourse is required.

the those can't abide these simples rules will go to other unmanaged forums and cry&whine about about how I banned them for no reason.

I wish more sites were managed like this one. This is the site I frequent the most, due to the members and the management. Thanks to all out here.

This site is polite and informative. What more could I ask for? You have rules. If someone doesn't like the rules they can go start their own fourm and pay for it out of their pocket.

Thanks Evan for a great site.

My two favorite firearms related sites are this one and the Texas CHL Forum, both have rules and they are enforced. The owners of both sites are actively involved in both the discussions and moderation of the boards. Texas CHL has the 10 year old granddaughter rule (don't post anything you wouldn't want your 10 year old granddaughter to read) that works pretty well.

An interesting aspect is, both boards are advertising free. Could this be the answer?

As always I could be wrong but I do not believe so. I have been to a number of other boards without advertising none were as good, some were awful.

I do not understand the behavour of those who do not follow the rules they are posted at the top of the page.

As I was checking out the forum for the first time, I thought the rules were alittle offbeat. But their's alot of knowledge here so I said "What the heck!" and joined.. Very glad I did, I love the atmosphere, I love the fact that their is no "IF YOUR USING THAT AND NOT WHAT I SAY YOU SHOULD USE!" That got old fast. Being that I've only owned a computer since 1/07 (had one about 10years ago in college but it was a loner). This is a much better place to be.

THANKS EVAN!

You must be talking about me! I am the king of putting my foot in my mouth! I also have a problem remember all my posts! I have come to the conclusion, I will post only 1 thread at a time and not get caught up in more that one discussion at a time so I don't forget what topics I am involved in!

Lovin' every minute of it!

Oh BTW, I have been a OSS fan since before your first book was published. I could not wait till the first book came out and I was so happy to get it. I have fought (argued) with others about the OSS theory. I truly believe in it and trust the data. I am glad I ran across your forum.

Keep up the good work Evan and all the other moderators!

I like that a young person like myself can get good advice here, sans all the "my grand master-sensei-sergent says do a backflip in order to maintain sight alignment, otherwise you'll explode" posts.

Any group runs smoother when the members have the life's experience and class to check their egos at the door.

This one of the very few forums I would recommend to a newbie, knowing they could ask a newbie's questions without being flamed and receive answers from knowledgeable people.

Better to perish in the struggle for freedom than live to see defeat.
