    ...anytime I post here the thread gets locked?

    How come no one is posting racial epithets, porn pics, and other trash here?

    Why not?

    Why not destroy this board same as the other one?

    Why not post trash unfit for decent people to see?

    I didn't take it down.

    I don't know whether it will be back.

    I didn't see what happened. Some members called after the fact and said people had posted disgusting pictures and text. Porn, racism, filth, etc.

    No, I won't stay here, either. Not going from admin to newbie.

    It all started because I asked members to be sensitive to persons of Japanese heritage and to use the word "Japanese," rather than "Jap."

    I guess I stirred up the closet racists.

    David, They lock your post because they dont want trouble to start. They run a pretty tight ship here. Just because there was people that like to start trouble on the old site doesn't mean they are posting here. Although, from what I've read a couple are over here, If they do try anything like that they won't be here much longer.

    I'll second ruger270 comment, if the other site is gone I hope you will post here often, as I, for one found your experience and knowledge valuable in making a site like this an asset to the firearms community.

    GBMod, Welcome to TFF.

    The reason the threads are getting locked is because we do not allow the bashing of other forums here. What happened at BrandX needs to stay at BrandX. Now, I read the thread at your forum where your own Admin said bashing BrandX is all we do here. Read all the posts and find one. I'll bet you can't because it's not allowed.....by anyone.

    Read the rules and if you decide to abide by them, you are most welcome and will make many friends here. Look around, we have more than just a General Discussion forum. We try to have something of interest for everyone wanting to call TFF their gun forum home.

    If you choose to bash forums or members here, you will be shown the door.

    Does that sound fair to you ??

    We know you have made alot of friends at BrandX and all, including you, are welcome. I hope you choose to stay.




    Edit: ALL Mods
    Do NOT lock this thread unless it gets out of hand or turns ugly. Give these former BrandX members a chance to find out what happened to their home.
    Thanks, Sam

    sounds like admin is punishing everyone for what a few did , to bad , hope they put it back up as i learn a lot over there , it would seem like a good warning would be enough but who knows

    Nunn- Most of us try to be civilized in both forums. There are a few that ruin it for all of us. With much respect, I hope to see you on one forum or the other, preferably both. Dan

    David, I must admit that I did voice my dislike for the Japanese because they killed my brother on Guadalcanal not mention my cousin on Bouganville and wounded my step-nephew on Iwo Jima. I do have my dislikes just like everyone else and i can't aopologize for something of this magnitude. At no time in that thread did i mention the short word "Jap".

    If i offended anyone then i apologize for that but never the way i feel!

    geezler ~ for those reasons you state (my "daddy john" aka granddad was a POW in WWII & he was captured by the germans, he said he was FORTUNATE to be a german POW & not a japanese POW), are the reasons why i'm not a supporter of japan. i will try to NOT be disrespectful in my talk about them, but how they treated our soldiers is something i cannot get past. so, for those of you that this offends, i do apologize.

    Hey folks, we're leaving this thread open so people can find out what happened over there. We do NOT want to re-open the same discussion that led to problems. In other words, drop the Japanese thing please.

    Geezler, the word in question was simply used as a short term for japanese, nothing derogatory, no flaming intent no nothing. I started a thread about japanese cars, using the word japanese in the thread title would not fit so it was shortened to jap. As of right now after all the hoopla I cannot for the life of me understand why the word jap offended someone to the point that htey begged for it to be removed, I guess some people just need something to gripe about and are overly sensitive. There are many things posted on brandX that offend me, but I do not speak up, one thing about this country is having to put up with things we do not like but some others cannot understand that. They need to be protected by a stupid term called "political correctness", that term itself offends me! But as long as there are people out there with thin skin and an agenda there will always be PC, sad to say we live in a world today where offending someone has become a crime, saying the wrong thing can cost you your job, cost you lots of money, cost you friends and even cost you a good place to meet with friends. There was a lot of junk on the board that night, I was wrong for complaining about censorship, I guess I forgot that we live in a PC world, others was wrong for posting porn and racial slurs, but you know none of that would have happened if someone would not have been so petty as to complain about a silly little word.

    I haven't posted over here in a while. I wondered why I couldn't access the other forum for a couple of days. I guess I missed all the whoopla that shut it down. Guess I'll hang out here for a while.

    I can't really say you missed much. There was some out of context wording used along with some very revealing photos that caused a small case of mass histeria [sp] and the next thing you know "access denied"!
