    When I logged on this mornign I had check a little bax promising not to be a complete jerk before being allowed access.

    The one think I've always really appreciated in shooters is the ability to police their own - things like enforcing eys and hearing protection, proper line protocol, and just overall good manners. I guess that addage "an armed society is a polite society" proves itself in the microcosm of a gun club.

    So now, I guess because we're not face to face, we snipe and slander to the point the moderator has to make us promise to be good.

    Why don't we all just pretend we're at the club.....

    I for one can live without all the garbage that was being posted, especially the wisecrack remarks from people who isn't even a shooter or ever has been. Thanks David.

    I wouldn’t have a problem if the owners/moderators popped up a similar check box reminder from time to time.

    Mr. Ducks
    I am sure you have read some of the responses that "Bigdon" has made, this is not necessary.

    The rules that came up when I logged in this morning did not say anything about a prohibition on "<i>WISECRACKS"</i>.

    Or for that matter a rule proscribing "<i>people who isn't even a shooter or ever has been. </i>

    Can you guys imagine the person......or person's who have a lot of log on names???

    Maybe this will cut down on some people having more than one sign on name.

    Hope so.

    I think everyone should have 1 log on name only.. I have 2 in the past.. and they could be thrown out..as I never use them.. When I first came on the board I was looking for a name that fit me.. I was shooting a Perazzi .800 bore O/U.. Thus PerazziBigBore I thought was pretty good..

    I sure hope so !

    If you ask me (OK,no one did, too bad) limiting people to one sign on name would cut out a lot of the nonsense.

    Multiple sign on names just seen to invite people to play games

    It's a CYA thing. David had to do it to show that he is not promoting such behavior.
    Bertonernie: your remark about "BIGDON", Was it necessary to take a shot at him already? Aren't you doing just what is trying to be prevented now.
    Trpshtr2001: the wisecracks that you refer to. How do you know these people don't shoot trap and never did unless you have met them off site? Why cast aspersions if you don't know for sure.

    For the most part I don't think there was any real harm meant. Some people have a different type of "sense of humor" than others, and that is it. Nothing malicious about it. Some people are course and some people are smooth. It's America and we all have the right to be ourselves. Mike

    What did you guys think? That the site management would throw the baby out with the bathwater? Yes, we do have our occasional do-fusses, but Mod and owner are in-tune business people that know how to straten it out and they did. Lump is right about the "black helicopters". They only exist in your mind. And I do not think that Mod wants you to not alert him on off color posts. I'm sure thay want to be notified when you see them. I copy and paste the poor-taste post to an email and send that to MOD. info@trapshooters.com One of the MOD's pick that up and decide if they want to leave or pop it.

    We all like the site. It connects us to friends that we did not know till we got here. the site is healthy and the management is in-tune an COOL.

    It is what it is ... and as soon as Moderator mentioned all the whining messages they were getting bombarded with from those who felt the need to moan and groan about anything and everything they decided something had to be done.

    As long as those who moan groan and complain learn that if they dont like something just move along and dont look back everyone will much happier. Yes there were times that things might have gone over board a little bit but when hasn't that happened before and I'm sure it will happen again ... but when all ya can do is complain and whine to the Moderator or David about it instead of just moving along ... well ... there are many more to blame other than ... well ... its just better to move along now and get back to having a good time I guess.

    Seemed like it was pretty much the same message that's always been on here.

    We could use a few more "nukes" from the moderators, otherwise, this site has been pretty tame.

    We're lucky to have this place.
