    What I do find to be nearly useless is when the OP qualifies their statement along the lines of "if you don't agree with me, don't reply".

    Plus, I like buying Glocks.
    ideas and stirring the pot are great, and the only time I have a problem with that is when the OP asks specifically for xyz, and they say I don't need to know about abc or 123, give them what they are looking for, and if you don't have experience with it don't add your idea sux get a Glock instead or you'll get STDs, your dog's hair will fall out, your car won't start, and the fridge will stop working, I think its a big turnoff to new members and people that are actually getting educated on that specific topic
    but like I said earlier.....if they ask for recommendations or opinions on their setup, idea, probable purchase, etc, then stir the pot

    only if its alternated (in the only magazine you have with you) with FMJ and you're not using a holster

    Yes, you should always twirl your pistol on your finger prior to holstering.

    I won't if your thread is a question about what CCW Sash color to buy. But if you ask me my opinion about CCW Sashes, badges, OC, and unchambered HiPoint .22 carry, look out.

    It's also special when you post something about a particular weapon or ask an opinion about it and it goes like this:

    OP: I've got a xxx and it has been great. Anyone else have any experience with them?
    RP: They stink, I'd never trust my life to xxx.
    OP: Oh, you have one and have had issues with it?
    RP: No.
    OP: Oh, you HAD one and it was not trustworthy?
    RP: No.
    OP: Oh, you shot one and it was terrible?
    RP: No.
    OP: So you had a buddy that had one and he had issues with it?
    RP: No.
    OP: ?!?!?!?!?! So where was the experience I asked about?!?!?

    It's a forum. Taking the bad with the good is no big deal. It is no problem to recognize and ignore the fluffy posts, the ignorant posts, and the contrary posts. It's the nuggets of wisdom that may be found that makes "forum-ing" worthwhile. I'm really too antiquated in outlook to even be here on DC but it is one of the best run "big" forums out there in Internet-Land and some of its members are the finest, most well-rounded and most knowledgeable shooters. We are also really fortunate to have cool-headed moderators that monitor gratuitous foul language, bad manners, and abusive members yet allow the threads to run as a forum, properly defined. They manage to do this without behaving like a bunch of egomaniac, control freaks. Y'all have seen such moderating on other forums and it ain't pretty.

    Besides, this is the only place I can at least sort of keep up with the new stuff. It's for certain that it isn't found in the shooting stuff I keep.

    Check one's sensitive feelings at the door and come on in, pull up a chair to the hot stove and dive right into the conversation. Great fun!

    Dude...my friend on the internet knew a guy who this happened to...it was pretty serious. I heard he consulted WebMD who then told him all would be well if he bought a SIG...

    I just noticed that the first reply to a poster asking for help was to bash his choice of gun. And a moderator put a like on the basher's post. I guess it is hopeless.

    Moderators can't have opinions about guns just like everyone else?

    I have no idea what thread or who you are talking about but, as stated, this is a forum where opinions abound and that includes the moderators.

    We don't need a running account of everything you think to be a transgression of internet etiquette.. especially vague accounts wherein nothing positive can be done to correct any actual insults, etc.

    If it is a breach of forum rules, report the post.
