    Craig set the tone from the get go. This site is about helping one another. A lot of BS never gets to enter the conversation when you keep that in mind. Wish these were the rules for a lot of other walks in life, including politics.

    Yeah, missed that one. Had I caught it I would have chimed in, just say no. Read a book, hug the wife.TV is soma, and time is too precious to waste.

    We don't see everything...too much forum activity for so few mods. Members can help out a lot by bringing posts/threads to our attention. Along the bottom of every post is a line of options, including "Report". Hit that button and it's like sending a red flare up...we'll see it and can then look farther into what's going on. Rick

    Chiming in here . . . (gotta stay in the good graces of the Moderators you know by saying good things about them) . . . but it's true . . . this really is one of my favorite forums just because folks with different opinions are allowed, but idiots spouting off questionable, dangerous or offensive thoughts are not. I've seen more than one forum like this ruined when folks are allowed to go off topic and end up being just plain mean to others.

    Yup. I lived on an archery "community forum" for years. I was politely asked to GTFO when I told a racist loudmouth there exactly what I thought of him. It was a grand implosion type exit. I miss a few guys there, but stay in contact with several others.
