Reminder of Content Rules

conchokidconchokid AdministratorPosts: 512 Senior Member
The recent thread about the Green Hornet prompted several posts that could be considered gay bashing. For those who may not have read our Content Rules, I reposting them here as a friendly reminder of what is expected from members and guests, and what will not be tolerated. Please pay particular attention to the Politics and Religion sections. — Jerry Lee, Administrator


These forums are here to provide members with a place to discuss matters relating to firearms, including their experiences with various products, the posting of questions and answers, and personal opinions on gun-related topics. There are forums for general firearm topics, personal defense and hunting. In addition, there is a forum dedicated to politics and Clubhouse, which is open for all subjects. Members should place their posts in the appropriate thread and forum.

A lively discussion is welcome here but there are a few rules we ask members to follow.

Spam will not be tolerated. Forum members are allowed to personally endorse products but only if you are not associated with the product or its manufacturer in any way. People in the industry are invited to join in the discussions and to become members but are not allowed to hype their company’s products.

Keep it clean. These forums are open to everyone and are here to promote the shooting sports and the responsibilities of gun ownership. By everyone, we mean the whole family including women and children. If you would not say something in front of a 12 year old or their mom or grandmother, then don't say it here. Please avoid trying to override the profanity filter with clever abbreviations.

Politics Forum. The Politics/Second Amendment forum was created primarily to discuss legislation and regulation relating to firearms but questions and comments on other political topics are also welcome. Feel free to express your views on the government, public policy and politicians. You can tell us which candidates you support but asking for donations is spam and will be deleted. Subjects like abortion and homosexuality sometimes relate to public policy but should be discussed with great care. It’s OK to express your personal beliefs but gay bashing, like racial slurs, will not be tolerated.

Religion. This is not the place to preach or to try to convert someone to your church or religion. You can say what you believe but please do not try to start a debate comparing one religion to another.

Illegal activity. It goes without saying that members of this forum should be aware of federal gun laws and those in their state and local jurisdiction. Make sure that all of your comments and suggestions fall within the law. Posts that encourage violation of gun or hunting regulations could get us all in serious trouble.

Trolling and flaming. If you come to our forums to start fights, insult people, gore sacred cows and in general, start trouble, expect to be banned. We enjoy lively and spirited discussion but Trolls are the lowest form of online life and will be dealt with in short order.

    Perhaps this would do better in the Clubhouse where the couple of usual offenders of the gay bashing rule might actually read this...they don't tend to post on this side often.

    He posted this in every subforum.
    I'm just here for snark.

    Hmm, didn't see it in the others, got buried maybe?

    Yes. It's a non-stickied reminder, so it seems.

    lol its right at the top of Clubhouse now...right UNDER the stickied posting of the rules. oh well, it'll calm down, and a certain biggoted someone will again start another gay bashing article, and they'll delete it again, and they'll make another post about the rules, and do nothing about the multiple repeat offender.

    While I'm not a big fan of gay rights and the gay life style, I realize they are also Americans and have the same rights we all do. I don't agree with gay bashing or any bashing ( except those who don't like .270s and barrel break-in :rotflmao::rotflmao::rotflmao:). There's sometimes a fine line between stating opinions and bashing so we have to pay attention. Besides, you won't change a persons beliefs and lifestyle by whining about it.
    Daddy, what's an enabler?
    Son that's somebody with nothing to do with his time but keep me in trouble with mom.
