A sad day for the Files.

For heavens' sake, give it a rest, Vince. Equality of consequences comes with time.
I hardly think the fate of the free world hangs in the balance, here :)

No, but if we are banning then do it to all parties involved.

Fairness. Simple.

Nothing ;) :)

I understand Vinces' concern and in principle agree. I would suggest, however, that it might be time to step back, take a dep breath, and see what a little time might accomplish.

Don't be a whiny bitch...when you fugk with someone intentionally you will get just as good in return. Also, judgements are made every day about whether one is a bigger asset or liability. Hope this helps. Welcome to the real world.

This.
Folks on this site are constantly whining about Ted being gone and seem to forget why exactly he left and hasn't come back. Some folks piss and moan about Gary not enforcing the rules and letting everybody run wild. Those same folks expect Gary to be another Ted and complain constantly about the lack of enforcement. So when Gary does start coming down on folks about things getting out of line then folks complain about that too. Most of the time I think he's far too generous.

If I were admin I wouldn't hesitate to brandish the ban hammer liberally a few weeks for those that constantly troll the site and constantly belittle fellow board members because it's always that same few. Seems this boards behavior sinks to a lower level of how the members treat each other with each passing year.

WTF? Really? I don't even know what **** is going on, but I know its stupid.

I remember one of my first posts here, and I was told I was too thin
skinned for the internet. Well I manned up, and didn't post where
I couldn't back up my bullshit.

If you don't like the subject, use the great gift of the 1st Amendment and...

STFU.

Fuckin wussies sometimes around here.

I agree its pretty stupid. If being an asshole is worthy of getting you banned we could cut our membership in half.

Why do I feel a "Go ahead punk, mess with me." attitude from the PTB here at the files? Almost......contemptuous. :(

I sincerely hope Vince didn't get banned. I've had more flame wars with him and dabs than anybody else here...ancient history. But banning him for expressing himself here the way he has is not normal ops for the files.

I doubt he got banned.

Lost his member? Maybe....... :biggrin:

Hope I don't get banned for that one.......

I'm still here. I was threatened, and in the old days I'd raise heck about it. Now I just don't care. They are killing the best gun board on the net. Things change.

For what it is worth, I enjoyed the flame wars. Good to see you still around.

Now...so nobody thinks we're dating or something....

And for old times sake......

WTF is wrong with you!?!?!??!

Such a kinder gentler place. I'm going to sell my FAL and Corvette and get a BB gun and a Prius. I may even become a vegetarian and quit drinking.

The flame wars and insults are what made this place enjoyable. Now, we've just got no kits and minimal activity - stick a fork in it. :rolleyes:

Sir,

For the uncalled for diatribe against me, I will please ask you to kindly refrain from making such statements? I find that they are hurtful and against the board rules.

Thank you.

Vince

P.S. No Ray Bans for you! (said in the kindest way possible)

Been a few years now. Is he ever going to pay off that beer debt?:shades:
Bet if you make it to the next FAL Fest, he'll hand you a beer (probably out of someone else's cooler):biggrin:
