    Right at the top of the page is a link to edit or delete posts. Just click on it and erase away, Dave.

    I am sure you could have deleted all of them 1 at a time quicker than writing an email to ask how

    I don't think he actually deleted all his posts. I think he just hit the spellcheck button...and every last word disappeared.

    copper said in another post that he seemed to attract the "worst people here" and I told him he hadn't yet.

    . . . but that was, of course, before Buzz smelled blood in the water . . .

    I thought we already cleaned up "this site" once. Moderaters were established and went sort of nutsoid.

    If posters come on here and make dumb statements then expect to be corrected. Just like the real world. Posters come from all walks of life just like the real world, so if you expect everyone to be warm and fuzzy, you are on the wrong site.

    Reference is made to all the "nice" people who have left because of rudeness and I don't buy it. I think it is due to staleness of topics, off shooting topics, nonshooter invasion, non-trapshooters passing themselves off as experts and insisting we change our sport.

    Maybe Mike and Phil K realized they over-reacted. Maybe they realized that by leaving they let the jerks win and decided that was unacceptable. Or maybe they just sucked it up and went on with life - which is what anyone with character does when he gets beaten down. Maybe a bit of all of the above.

    If a person is on this site for a month, they learn who is a horse's ass and who adds value. If they are driven away by the jerks they have a problem; because they are also leaving the "good guys" who are in the majority here.

    Frankly, I expect to see Devi come back. She has made many more friends here than enemies and it sad it has taken so long for her to realize that.

    I have seen Neil take some dumb comments over his graphs and studies but he hangs in there and makes a significant contribution to our knowledge. Even the guys who take those cheap shots read his posts. I suspect they eventually begin to question their "beliefs" as Neil explains the rationale for how he does his testing and what the results demonstrate. If they are ignorant they will learn; if they are stupid they do not.

    I have met some very fine people who sometimes come off a little "aggressive" on this site. Tron, BigDon, Alf-99 come to mind immediately. I would not have met them without TS.com

    I would not like to see this site changed. If you write something dumb, expect to be nailed - and learn from it. If you write something good, be prepared to defend it. I do not see anything wrong with that.

    We are not perfect but what is?

    Paul, there is plenty of room for sharp disagreement in many walks of life; there's no reason to sanitize TS.com to pretend it doesn't exist.

    In my case, a take particular exception to people posting technical information which is clearly simply made up and I've worked too hard to get good patterning information (for example) to let someone just type and essentially tell readers here his information is just as valid as mine. So I go after them and don't pretend otherwise. A personal attack? I guess you could call it that, and if I have the data to call something BS it is little different from calling the writer a BSer, but, I figure, who cares? If that's what's going on, why withhold my best argument and let someone get away with misleading readers here?

    Who's to say anyone really left, maybe they just changed their sign-on name?

    I never got to see copper's post so I'm not sure of the content but I have the same question. I have several hundred "old" posts just kinda hanging around. I know they take up space somewhere and I would love to clean them out in a single bite rather than doing it one at a time with multiple "are you sure you want to do this" for every post. Can it be done? How?
    Thanks

    Some people like to use the search feature to see if a subject has been talked about before starting a new thread to rehash what has already been done. Those of you that delete your posts only make that option worthless for some. If you can't live with what you post, don't post it! And the same people that delete are probably the ones that whine the most when an old subject is brought up again.

    I still believe a person should have 1 hour to edit mistakes in a post then it is closed to edit/delete.

    Let's not confuse "personal attack" with strong "disagreement". I have been called more names by the blithering idiots on this site than most. Ignore them and go on, they are what they are.

    This site is well worth the price of a few insults. I have met so many good people/shooters across the country, even some I have strongly disagreed with. People's time and personal patterns change so you don't see them like you used to but doesn't mean they have left.

    Hang in there.

    Zara, What do you plan on doing? Switching your handle to the other hand?
