    Word on the streets is that Mengwe was asked to discontinue posting jokes that we have come to enjoy..Thanks to the "no" named moderator, he will no longer be with us...WTF...Quote "This is not a joke site".... Ziggy

    You know I was sorry to hear this as I enjoyed the light hearted jokes. I never read any that were malicious or of really bad taste. Jackie B.

    If this is true, I`m very sorry to hear it. Mengwe`s jokes were on of the few things left on this site worth looking at.

    Mike I`ll miss your humor.

    Mr. moderator, get a fr*****n life.

    There are MANY MORE ignorant, and TOTAL B.S. posts on TS.com that deserve axing before MENGWE's jokes!

    I think there was more to It than jokes, We have to remember to show respect for the owner of this site and his moderators.

    well said Shannon, we tend to forget who owns this site. I just appreciate it for what it offers me. I never read his posts because I didn't really like them but figured it was none of my business and I am not the only person on here

    Ya, this is upsetting. I think everyone appreciates this site for what it offers. mengwe included. Sure his jokes were on and off at times, but he enjoyed being here. He wasn't an a$$hole and he logged a lot of hours here. I hope he stays and others are adult enough to allow the man to save face.

    I'm sure he will be back. MOds are not heartless. But this is not an site where you copy and paste internet joke/junk tha tcomes into your puker. And then he tried to tell the mods they were wrong. I (too) hope he will be back andbe a bit more circumspect.

    It wasn't ONE moderator, in fact if you have a problem complain to David. He, I believe dumped him.

    Although, all the moderators were in agreement with the action.

    MIA is not a moderator, so don't go blaming him.

    MIA, you can not be serious with that post. There is stuff that is copied and pasted on here every day, and it is not deleted. By the way, the mod was, and is still wrong.

    Do I need to post a list of stupid threads that need to be deleted.

    1 anything that starts " I am Tired of ___________".

    The "I am tired" stuff has been removed. Please watch your 4 letter words. We do have young shooters on this site. Edited by Moderator

    mengews jokes were great not in any way offenseive the moderators need to rethink their stance here. Many of found the humor a great reason to visit the site.

    Ok I guess the last thread I replied to had to do something with this one that Juno made.

    Ok even I have posted a lot of stuff that might needed to be deleted but I didn't post some out ragaougous stuff that needed to be on a porn site ok I have read some of the jokes that was posted on here from Mengwe which I have got many times in forward email's before but decided to not share, Ok im sure his was not that bad but im sure he copied and pasted the email he got and didn't proof read it so maybe that is why he is on the bad side right now.

    Ok if anyone want's to send me the offending post that got him in trouble then send it above either email or private message and i will reply if even I think it was worthy of being banned or not, ok there is a place for every thing but on here is not a place to put any and everything on here so even, I might agree if it crossed the line or not but I will give my honest opinion.

    It's a matter of one and few of his friends finding some things unoffensive and the site owner & moderaters finding them offensive. Why didn't Mengwe accept it and move on. No he had to try and did make a issue out of it. Just like some of you are making fun of and insulting the moderators, making a issue of it.

    It is very simple accept the site owner and moderators rules or move on. If you have an issue do it privately instead beating your drum on here looking for sympathy and a following. The site was here before you came and will be here after you leave.

    Don

    PS: I didn't read the joke in question but justify it by saying it came from a "lady" doesn't wash.

    Going to miss Mike and his humour. Not all jokes are funny to all people. Mengwe's post I would always read and enjoyed most of them. New bi us, I don't waste my time, and that's my choice. Sorry Mike, shoot well and often, Bob

    Bob ... was there some reason you felt the need to drag others into it?
