    I am now labeled a fanboy, troll and banned for asking a question..my heart is broken

    I realize everyone has an opinion and many post that opinion on youtube.

    I have a simple rule in life before I question something someone says or does I try to research it or at least know that my expertise or knowledge tells me that they are wrong, in other words before I bash someone I feel you have had to earn that right either through education or experience.

    Recently on another forum ptmccain, armsdorf or VDMA whichever he goes by posted a comment on the forum about yet another video he made. This video was about James Yeager being a coward and challenging people to come to Tennessee to call him a coward to his face. I went and watched the video and it raised several questions about McCain himself so I simply asked him "What was his level of LE/Military/Tactical experience?" I also stated that I have never met Yeager, taken a class from him the most I have ever done was watch his videos, some of which I agree with and some I don't.

    His response was calling me a Yeager Fanboy. When I stated all I wanted to do was have an answer to the question I was banned and my comments removed. At this point I sent him an email to his public account and asked him the same question this time I was called a troll. I am gathering from his responses and actions that he does not want to answer any questions about his level of experience but continues to go after others.

    I never really watched any of his videos as they don't have any real value, even entertainment value and that is saying something, but I still do not understand why he won't answer the question. If his idea of doing a mag dump from an AK on a square range is tactical shooting he has a lot to learn.

    This is the internet. When someone calls your anonymity in to question you absolutely MUST circle your proverbial wagons, double down on your original accusations and finally start calling people names.

    Isn't that in the rules somewhere?

    ^^^^^^Yeah, isn't that^^

    What everyone does?

    tacman, some people are delusional to the point that there is no end to which they will protect their shrouded mysterious ways, and try to hide things, and when somebody calls them on it, they whig out and point fingers.
    Its just like when one spouse is cheating and gets busted for it, the first thing they do is hurl acusations toward their spouse, deny it and hand out more BS.


    Next time don't be such a big meanie!

    The fella you mentioned (not Yeager) has made quite a reputation for himself on several forums. I'll leave it at that.

    Give me the site address so I can call him a caca-doodoo-head for you and then you will be even.


    On a serious note, if they banned you for that is it really somewhere you want to be anyway?

    Welcome to the internet. The greatest place on Earth for people to spout out all kinds of bovine stuff and remain largely unknown.

    I wouldn't take being called a "Yeager Fanboy" too much to heart, anyone via the computer, phone or even snail mail can hurl insults and be a manly man about it.

    What you need to wish for is a face to face with said individual and then you will see just how brave they are in person.

    I have only been a forum participator for maybe 3 years. This is the first forum I joined, and I belong to maybe 3 more. But this forum and the South African GunSite forum are the two I participate in the most.

    But I have to say, entering the world of cyber space has been an eye opening experience. And sometimes very frustrating. The amount of crap put out by some is staggering.

    Of course, it's also rewarding to meet some genuine and good people.

    I'm getting better, learning I can't argue every point, and sometimes you just have to let the horse drink from the puddle, even when there's a clear stream nearby.
    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

    I'm no Yeager fan, but at least his video's are watchable.

    It's the Internet. What can you say or do about it?

    You are still welcome here and that is all that really counts.

    Well on the interweb I am Special Agent Orange, member of the PENGUINS an elite special operations group comprised of members of Seal Team Six and Delta Force who attended Mr. Miyagi's special ninja school, and regularly drink Chuck Norris's sweat.


    But in the real world I'm just a middle age guy who can't eat spicy food anymore......
