    You would know if you had any. When a formal warning or infraction is issued it generates a PM and the warning/infraction history can be viewed in your profile by yourself and the staff.

    Hats off to the Mods and Admins. I didn't even know such a warning was needed.

    I guess you guys clean up the junk before we ever get to see it.

    They will show up on your public profile, and you would have been notified. BTW: I just checked, you are clean.

    It's sad that you have to keep posting this stuff, but thanks for doing it. I think that the vast majority of us try our best to be good citizens of DC.

    It really is. We are still removing and issuing infractions for a large number of political posts and language (and language workaround) violations. While many of these are new members that did not read the rules, some of them continue to be members that have been here for some time and know the rules. The majority of our members, though, do make an effort to follow the rules and we appreciate it....

    Let me be right up front by saying sorry....... LOL! I do sometimes use a work-a-round..........
    But thank you for all your (everyone) work on the forum....... it really is a great place to come to, and I spend a lot of time here!! ;)

    I think most everyone can have a civil discussion.... I think the problems come from those who only have ONE view of things....... thiers!
    Oh well I guess......what would the second amend be without the first.........

    Thank you, JD.

    It seems like here and on the other forum I'm a member of, there has been a bit of an uptick in new people joining up for no other reason than to "stir the pot".

    I think you can attribute a large amount of the pot stirring to the passionate nature of the firearms debate. Most people willing to get in on the discussion are either vehemently for or against the principles of the Second Amendment (or at the very least strongly disagree over what the Second Amendment actually says). There aren't a lot of people who take the time to get in on the "debate" that are moderate on the subject.

    When people get passionate they can, at times, get irrational or forget themselves. I honestly don't think the vast majority of people here intend on launching into a full-on tirade about religion or the government or whatnot... they just get all fired up and fail to quit while they're ahead.

    It happens. What is necessary is an administration with their head screwed on straight, like we have here, that knows when enough is enough. I appreciate the dedication, mod-type folks.

    Thanks for the post! I noticed last week that there were a few political posts and was happy to see them removed. One of the biggest reasons I come to this site rather then other s is the limited discussions. Every one has their own views and beliefs but I would rather get advise from the members here instead of bickering.

    First and foremost; I belong to several forums, not just firearms related but others relating to many of "our kind of folks" point of view. I notice that all of them without exception are having these same problems. My opinion is that there are many internet trolls and agitators joining these forums innocuously, reading then posting for a while then they begin their controversial/offensive posting. I honestly believe these are probably some of the same people doing the same thing, agitating and causing hatred and dismay on these forums. It would be nice to see if Administrators of other forums could coordinate their efforts by sharing information regarding the IP addresses where many of these people are sourcing from.

    I just got back from a conference addressing these coordination issues as they apply to my job (power industry), where I am a supervisor/lead administrator over several power plant control systems. Due to new critical infrastructure protection laws, we now have to coordinate our detection of potential hackers and their IP addresses with the Feds (Homeland Security). Perhaps the same kind of coordination could be done between DC and other firearms related boards? Just a thought.

    Oh yeah, and don't say PDO three times......we don't want that monster coming back.

    We do that.

    It would be fun to be a fly on the wall at that forum to see who moderates the moderators......
