Does anyone know who the point of contact is for the website? I can't find anyone to email anywhere. I am not able to log in. I keep getting the error "user ip address mismatch". I even made a new account and get the same thing.

Down All Day

Packing.Org was down pretty much all day. I must have tried 20 times to view it, and was only successful once in the mid-morning. All other times the page would simply not load. No error message or anything.. the browser just wouldn't bring it up.

I get a little tired of the rating system over there. Lately, I received zeroes for pointing out that a police officer should be respectful and polite when expressing his ignorance of the law relating to carrying firearms.

Zero?

Any posting on LEO threads draws zeroes.

I also received zeroes on one of those threads where people were ranting and raving about the UN and gunbans and "they can pry it from my cold dead fingers . . ." I simply pointed out that in New Orleans, people handed them over meekly (although that little old lady put up a fight! :D ) and none of the troops or LEOs refused to obey the orders to seize firearms.

Zeros.

Sigh.

As I have said before, post the links here and I am sure one or more of us could visit and help correct the problem.

I Can't Get On

I can't get to the damned website-- I have tried several times today, from the early morning until now (9:30 p.m.). Malum, I'd love to help you out and counter-act that undeserved zero with a "five" but I can't seem to do it.

I think that site's downtime is a far worse problem (for now) than either the rating system or the off-topic crap that gets posted there in spite of, or perhaps because of, the rating system.

P.S. If your score ever gets too low, just start a new thread entitled "Thank You God, For the U.S.A." and put for the content of your post some bumper-sticker slogan like "God, Guns, and Guts Made America Free-- Let's Keep All Three." That is sure to earn you a bunch of fives. Just don't say anything that will cause people to THINK, or urge them to DO SOMETHING in real life, because it's so much easier just to talk the talk than to walk the walk.

GS1, since you are an admin over there, is there really no way to rid the site of all the trash that was put onto it over the weekend?

That is really going to run off a lot of people . . .

Nope, and your right it will.

Mark (the owner) is the only one with the power to actually delete a post. The best I could do is vote on it and give it a 0 (same as everyone else). With enough 0's the post will be marked as bad and only those who have set their preferences to see all posts (including the bad ones) will see it.

Won't the title still show up?

There are almost as many irrelevant, profane, and useless titles over the weekend as there are real posts.

Oh, well, this site is WAY better for Georgia anyway.

I am just a glutton for punishment. I saw this guy posting in the LEO Encounters section about an officer at a traffic stop jumping and putting his hand on his gun when the driver told the officer he both had a firearms license and was wearing his gun.

One of the regulars who is a police officer jumped all over the original poster, and I just could not help but wade in.

I know that by doing so I am asking for zeroes, but I cannot stay out of the law enforcement posts :D It is just inexcusable to act like all firearms license holders are about to shoot cops . . .
