Last forum left you can express your opinion?
« on: October 30, 2016, 09:11:18 AM »
 I'm starting to believe this is the last forum left were you can express your opinion. Too many rules and overlords elsewhere. If it's not in the moderators agenda your running the risk of being banned or having your posts removed. What a sad bunch of crap these days.

TAG is pretty open to express opinions

What some site moderators have forgotten, is the fact we're all hear (misspelling pun intended) to learn. When a moderator has a personal grudge, and he/she uses it as a delete guide-line, then he/she loses too! And if said moderator thinks site visitors don't notice, then he/she loses again.

Caveat Emptor!

Isn't grumpy Dave's forum still up?  He always allowed people to say their piece and even rant a little. 

I never got censored on Airgun Home of Air Gun One either.  Maybe I just never had anything that conflicted with the moderator/owners there. 

GTA is the worst.  I got banned there for what I said privately in PMs.  I got slapped in the face with a gauntlet for what I said publicly.  LOL.  When Dave came over here and started pushing his silencer agenda and it seemed to have an affect I almost left this forum.

I'm not well-liked over there....Yeah like I'm losing sleep over that.
A few of the members over there are pretty cool guys.....but they stay only on that forum.
I don't want to share or contribute to a place that censors so heavily.
That impact thread has been gone over by Michael and is "fine groomed now", heck he even changed the title of the thread!

Sadly AGN has definitely gone down hill... while I rarely post there
and only on select topics I may just stop all together I'd rather stop supporting and let their
actions have consequences... its a bummer that their are a few great people that stand out on each forum yet
each forums has its downsides... personally I'm sticking with GTA and I check here regularly.

AirgunNation is a Joke,
I used to hunt and shoot with Michael  but when I started pointing out on the forum that they where going way overboard with Nuking, censoring, editing threads and banning people I eventually got banned myself  ;D ;D

Sad when forums can't let discussion develope because they aren't going in the direction they want them to go.

They just want you to read what they decide is appropriate for you to read, pretty sad state of affairs.

Not liking the truth about something does not make it any less true....tough concept for some I don't know why?

In the past I thought the Yellow was bad with the overmoderating, censorship and so on, until AirgunNation came on, and they sure raised the bar considerably  ;D ;D

Well, looks like yesterday I managed to get myself finally banned from the Yellow too  ;D ;D ;D
