    OMG !!! I've been warned by another forum for a rules violation!! Why do some forums have to enforce their rules to the point of being obnoxious? I started a thread on another forum about what kind of mag holder will fit Para Ordnance P-18 mags. They are a little longer front to back than most 9mm mags. I put the thread in the Para Ordnance forum on the site. I saw that it said "thread has been moved". I thought, no big deal. it's now in the holsters and carry equipment forum. I then get a PM from a mod, informing me that I have received a 1 point warning for a posting violation, and that that violation will stay on my account for 15 days. 10 points gets your account locked for anywhere from 7 days to permanent.

    Here is a list of some of the warnings, followed by how many points the warning is and how many days the warning stays on your account.

    Complaining about other fora is a 15 point violation here on GPDO. Consider yourself warned.

    When you get to 20 pts here you have to buy the next round of Sigs (that means for everyone). Consider yourself warned.

    PS What forum is that so I don't go there. PM if you would rather not say publicly. SHHHHH They might hear you.:ninja:

    Half of our members would be suspended. 8)

    The forum is http://www.forum.m1911.org I joined there when I bought my Armscor 9mm 1911. They have a dedicated Armscor/Rock Island forum.

    I would think just owning a 1911 in 9mm would be enough for a lifetime ban! :lol:

    So what exactly can you discuss there? I have enough trouble restraining the colorful language on this board, I couldn't imagine someplace with that many restrictions.

    I already got another one!!! I started a thread, then noticed another thread on the same topic that had been moved. I immediately edited mine to say, "Sorry, I posted then found a similar thread." I got a warning for that one being in the wrong forum also.

    Gee, Adam5. I only met you once, but you seemed like an okay guy. I should have stood further away from you. Does that stuff rub off?

    You have GOT to tell us where this other place is!! C'mon, we all want to see how quickly we can run up points and get suspended.

    Rules..
    You have to post the Tima and Date when you joined.

    The Time and Date of the post banning you is what determines your score.

    Whoever gets banned in the quickest time, hours and minutes (with seconds being a tie-breaker for budder and VolGrad) wins the contest.





    Edit: Dear Moderators you know i'm only kidding, right? I'm not Really trying to get innapropriate behavioir points on This board. Heck I like you guys... enough to let you all play with my toys :)
