    Pre-meditated violence at the creation of a sub-forum.

    Hm, I understand Jack's concerns but then I think that we need not discuss specific potential threats, only how to survive them. Maybe a better label for such a forum would be "Emergency Preparedness". I think that would be a worthwhile forum topic, not covered by other forums.

    ROMT i can see that , so why not add it on to Firearm-related Activities

    i like ruffit's but would like to see more survival foods , prepping meat for storage etc but thats me and all thats up to the forum bosses and were they wish the forum to go

    maybe by keeping the focus on guns and helping folks with there questions about guns thats made this place great , is where they want it, i dunno

    maybe they'll be looking at changes or more esxpansion , to be more encompassing

    but i see problems there too

    to lose your focus is always a bad thing , to think of everything is impossible and why we as a society tend to specialise ..

    if we expand the basic focus of the forum we become a bit of everything , thats great for some , not so great for the majority

    if i can reference guns.net , i liked the place , had good friends and met some on my last trip over from that forum .. but it got too big and had too many groups , the traditionalists and BP crowd, the ninja's and such, survivalists , AK lovers and AK haters

    the folks running it got lost and it fell apart , what started as a bun fight between groups became a divided line , split about 4 ways .. sponsors and regulars left in droves , some here now

    who's to blame ? some kids who breezed in started a flame war and left but left a house divided right up to the top.

    over nuthin ..

    i'll let ya's in on something ..

    the admins here have a good touch

    we nail spam and hate speech fast , some folks slip up and so we send em a "hey , whats up ? you know better than that" and its generally not stated again , some folks we give a 3 day infraction to give em a idea to behave

    i've copped them too.. most folks say , ok , and learn.. some wish to argue , thats ok too, there side counts .. but we have rules here and they are handled rather well in my view , maybe too soft by me ... but its their place so i go that way too as a mod

    , thats real hard to get that balance right , and all that changes with scale

    we expand the range then that level of commitment needs to grow and you cant have folks here 24/7 , they burn out .. so we either have to get more mod's ( more idea's and view's ) or get tougher on infractions .. and then you see the tone of the place change either way


    yes i'd like to deal on a few how too's , hunting , food prep, wild seed's and grains

    hide prep, tool makin how to set up a camp etc

    bed rolls for cross country huntin , packs for different uses

    but very little of that involves a gun , killin the game yeah ! but all after that ??

    so is it suitable ? it is a drift off course ? thats for the bosses to decide

    No worries , mark your applied area on a map or by marking the boundaries with the blood of evil doers or politicians who helped themselves rather than the people..

    rules as follows ,
    be firm but fair ,
    no free rides ,
    No BS
    No PC

    oh and it dont matter who you are , what colour you be ... by their deeds shall ye know them , is the rule ..


    and be ready to hand it all back when the People get their collective backsides in gear and ready to do whats needed once again..
