We are now running on a new, and hopefully much-improved, server. In addition we are also on new forum software. Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :)
Please help by posting all issues here.
The forum will be down for about an hour this weekend for maintenance. I apologize for the inconvenience.
Is there anyway that we can actualy speak our minds here or can you come out and tell us whether or not you want us to say certain things? I read the rules of this forum... the mods do not follow them. They delete comments that dont break the rules while allowing offensive comments that DO break the rules to remain. I have reported many offensive posts myself and the mods do nothing. I type messages like "please dont be racist" and it gets moderated as a personal attack.... yet comments like "DISGUSTING HOMOSEXUALS ARE MORALLY BANKRUPT!!!" remain where they are.
Can you just come out and say your aim here? Are you anti gay? Whats going on here, why do these mods not mod fairly? One look at this comment wall tells me that im not the only one with this problem. Should people looking for free speech and fair treatment just go elsewhere....?
re: the thread "Should non us citizens be given the right to open carry?"
TO THE MODERATOR,
Censure in a balanced manner or do not do so at all. I await your censure of the others for infering that I'm somehow unbalanced (tinfoil hat, conspiracy theorist) or ignorant (double talk, bigot) in highlighting HISTORY and specifically NOT my 'opinions'.
I also await your reposting of the proofs of intent of subversion of this Republic by a political (not a Religious) city state ensconced in Italy.
My opinions are that all should be free to worship whomsoever they wish.
Reality shows that there have been and are those acting on Religion in both the East and the West who do not wish said.
My opinion is, furthermore, that Gun Control stems from Western actors on religion. If you will not allow said statements, you are not a Forum...you are a propanda mill. Are we clear?
I lurked here for a long time and did not sign up due to the drama. After you banned members and others walked I thought it was safe. Yesterday I was attacked and accused of being a sock puppet by one of the previously banned members.
And yet he is still a member. How is this in any way possible?
Looks like I made a mistake. This may not be a place for me after all.
I hope I might pull some out. I'm working with (extremely loosely, no official ties) to locals, but I'm tired of the crap, as are we all. The more we can yank off the streets the better.
And here's a novel idea: The more we can begin to work with, the much better off. Before you cast judgement, I'm German by heritage. Yet if we can figure out how to help and support legal (and I do stress legal) efforts in our US, regardless of heritage... That's a good thing.
