    A General FYI To All Members.

    Members (in general) should be aware of the fact that if you ask to have your account deleted AKA "be made an EX-Member" we will oblige you right away.
    That is because some folks cannot just quietly go away Some need to make a GRAND EXIT - and they post things that they shouldn't and they mess up the continuity of threads by altering posts and they start sending boo-boo PMs to Moderators etc.

    So we WILL Nip You In The Bud if you say that want to be outta here.

    ALSO: Do NOT let any individual posts put a knot in your Big Boy UnderRoos.
    If there is a post that bothers you and it is Off Topic and adds nothing constructive to a thread then just PM a Moderator and it will be deleted.
    But, if any member has a personal opinion regarding a topic and you just don't happen to agree with their opinion...that's too bad.
    Either ignore it or respond to it but, don't make it personal.

    ALSO: Members should know that you DO have a forum IGNORE feature. If some individual member constantly gets under your skin...place them on your Forum IGNORE List. That way you will not see their threads or their individual posts.

    And meanwhile I DO wish that folks would just stop it with the clip/magazine thing.
    And PLEASE if one person in a thread corrects a member then there is no need for 9 other members to post..."It's A Magazine Not A CLIP!"

    ALSO....Everybody....Please try and grow a thicker skin.
    Don't allow every typed word on an Internet forum bug the crap out of you.
    Consider the fact that it is (in actuality) probably a stupid comment by an anonymous "somebody" that you do not know and...who does not know you and "people" out there occasionally type things that they would not say to your face if you were sitting in the same room with them sipping on a cold glass of Iced tea. They feel emboldened because they are cloaked under their forum name which is typically not their own.
    People get weird and goofy on the Web sometimes. Try not to respond to it. Just report it if it is a personal attack or a goading post.

    Trust me...I get it worse than you all get it but, mostly VIA Private Mail.

    See Below.

    You sir are insulting.
    and you are indeed the ignorant and judgmental one.
    Keep your judgmental opinions your yourself and refrain from those judgmental opinions from closing other threads.
    Given you sir, I pity the rest of this site and will leave it. Please feel free to ban me forever..

    You Ignoramus.
    <~~~~ Do you want to know how much that bothers me?
    About this much.~~~~>

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Thicken up that skin.
    The world is chock full of insignificant whack-a-doodles & LIFE is too short and precious to waste a minute of it getting all bent out of shape over what spews off of the keyboards of irrelevant, semi-intelligent, idiots. Mommas basement can be a cold & lonely place to live and some folks just need an outlet and any excuse to vent.

    Qk knows of what he speaks and Qk is pretty thick skinned.

    The fact that I'm still here proves it.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Go to Settings
    My Settings
    Edit Ignore List

    then add who you want to Ignore.

    But, sadly you cannot "ignore" Moderators or Admin...as much as some of you would probably like to.

    Nobody is going to put a nurse on ignore. You have a heart attack and need CPR. The one person who could save your life is thinking "That's the jerk that put me on ignore. Well OK, buster!!"

    Ya know, thats one thing I have never done is put someone on "ignore".
    I got close one time, and then that dude commited suicide by Mod.

    And no, it wasnt me.

    Hey QKShooter, I have a 22 yr. old living in my basement that could use some of your advice. ;)

    I dont see how someone can get upset over something someone else says on a forum!? It's like arguing on youtube its just pointless! Who needs a GRAND release anyways? They obviously think they're just high n mighty!
