    Neither of you appear to be banned when I go and look at that post.

    Just FYI, the only strike I have ever gotten was at S&W Forum for asking a legitimate question about NRA's full-time staff salaries. Many of the old fudds out there take even a question about NRA or its staff as the equivalent of practicing witchcraft in 1600s Salem.

    I've been following the aftermath of our bans in that thread. It's basically 'fudds' vs. 'not one more inch' guys.

    Gotta suppress the truth the best they can.

    You can't go educating the dumb masses like that!

    Hey, at least they haven't banned me here yet for expounding an unwelcomed viewpoint lol

    Nobody has ever been banned here for an unwelcome viewpoint.

    Neither were banned because their "viewpoint" being "unwelcome."

    Yes, the forum has rules, and violating them will, eventually, get you banned. None of the rules exercises viewpoint discrimination.

    This is why I was banned. I dared to disagree with which gun lobby to support. AR15.com pays the NRA and I oppose the NRA. The notification of my perm ban seems to be pretty clear.

    Hi MAC. The post you quoted was about banned members of this forum not arf.com.

    I think any opinion can be the basis for trolling.
    Although obviously an unwelcome and unpopular opinion is more disruptive.
    But even opinions I agree with ought to get people banned, eventually, if they won't shut up about it and don't behave themselves, and can't "play well with others."

    Example: FortayFanBoy starts 3 new threads on the subject of why the .40 S&W is the best handgun round ever developed. 3 new threads in the same day!

    Then FortayFanBoy searches for every thread where caliber debates have occurred in the last 5 years and posts the same cut-and-paste message in each of them, thus bumping that thread to the top.

    Fortay FanBoy throws out his opinion on the superiority of the .40 caliber in just about every thread, on any topic. Thread about choosing a holster? FFB posts that most holsters made for 9mm guns will fit the .40 versions of the same guns also (nobody had asked about this; it's out of the blue). FFB sees a thread about micro red dot optics on handguns, and posts that they need to be strong to handle the recoil of the .40 S&W round, but it's worth buying a quality one.

    Yeah, if FFB keeps that crap up, he should get warned, sanctioned, have his posts moderated over his objection, and eventually banned.

    I've never been banned on any site or even put in time out for any of my posts. Guess I know where the line is between making a point and being obnoxious. Or then again maybe it's because I am a NRA life member since 2000...who knows:hide:

    Funny, I've been an NRA Life Member longer and was still put in the time out room at S&W Forum for simply asking about salaries for the life-tenure bureaucrats at NRA. Some folks simply can not think and if their sacred cows are even mentioned in a way that is not 100% positive they react with aggression. If NRA is ALWAYS above questioning it is only a matter of time before they develop all the bad habits/behaviors of any tyranny.

    Good point but like everything else, timing and tact are fundamental.
