Over the last two week I have reviewed my replies to posts and I may have been a little harsh with my “Calling Bovine Feces” on some member’s post. For that I am truly sorry and if I offended you in any way, diminished yourself worth, or caused a bout of ED, my apologies for my impertinent!
I have placed myself in a program to deal with my reactions to what I perceive as untruths put in writing.
In my defense, when enjoying an adult beverage or just socializing with friends and acquaints at the local watering hole calling bovine feces on someone’s story doesn’t seem to stir the dander as it does when written in a post reply. I know I’ve received a couple “5 bulls” call outs for some of my hunting stories, like the time I bagged two redheaded, long legged, large breasted, bed thrashers while working/hunting in Russia. With that in mind, maybe the proctors of the site could design a non-verbal/written response such as a “Smile” image of a back end of a bull. We could have from one bull to five bulls. That way we could just select the amount BS we want to call and give links to our verifications or fact checks refudiating the perceived offending post. No offensive caterwauling.
Again my mentor in the forum manners program said I’m doing well just to acknowledge that I have a problem with bloviating when replying to a post I consider non-factual. Just a note, my mentor's name is Ms. Tor!
I will try to be more civil when replying to post containing non-factual information.

Don"t let stupid be your skill set....
And Shepards we shall be, for Thee, my Lord, for Thee,
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, So that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command,
And we shall flow a river forth to Thee, And teeming with souls shall it ever be,
like the time I bagged two redheaded, long legged, large breasted, bed thrashers while working/hunting in Russia.
I could totally see that happening.
I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards

In the future when apologizing after having imbibed a few adult beverages please try not to be sincerely apologetic in General Firearm Discussion.

No need to apologize for me having to move your thread.
It's already a bit too artificially sweetened in here.

I always question "the fact that me, a noble-faired, long haired leaping gnome should be the star of a Hollywood movie". Or why I should post in the wrong forum.
I American and I Ameriwill!
I always heard that as "an over fed, long haired leaping gnome"
Oh yeah, I call BS on this. For some reason I don't think the apology was sincere.
