    They are already up there linked in the blue navigation bar above if you want to peak at them. I am just giving some advance notice before we make everyone agree to them again so maybe we don't have as much confusions as we normally have....

    Are you implying that we are confused? As for me, only late at night when I can't log off the forum becuase I'm having such a good time!

    Looked at the link... how do we know which are the "new" rules and which are the "old" ones. Or do we just have to memorize the whole thing all over again? Maybe the "new" rules should be highlighted?

    It never hurts to re read the rules. I assume the intent is to keep the honest folks honest and the forum at a higher standard than some of the other ones floating around out there.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    I know that in the past when I have done this, I have received no less than 100 emails from people that could not figure out how to agree to the rules or thought they were being singled out because they had done something wrong.

    Ninety five percent of the rules remained unchanged with a couple of new ones added (11 & 12). There have been other more subtle changes included and emphasis added where it was needed. Don't worry too much about what has changed, just read them and understand them as they are today.

    Yup, everywhere but here...

    If you don't remember all of the rules, don't worry too much about it; you will as we enforce them....

    This thread motivated me to re-read the rules carefully, rather then just quickly skimming over them. Really good stuff, Bumper, and what helps keep this Forum the great place it is.

    I understand the part about flaming and personal attacks, but what is trolling?
    The muzzle end of a .45 pretty much says, "Go Away" in every language.

    Trolling is basically posting just for the purpose of enraging other members. Something like: "I think xx brand sucks and anyone who buys one is an idiot." That's over simplified, of course but you see the point, people are bound to take offense and usually an argument ensues.
