    Hello People,

    Notice a few members are gone over the last couple of weeks or so (hopefully for good) and we hope a few of the moderators are gone as well. To be a moderator one must be objective. You can't allow yourself to be swayed by the crowd and in any group be it dopers, drunks, bums or criminals people will always stick together, but that doesn't mean the person on the outside is wrong.

    I'm sure however they are out there still lurking around, they can't get away with it on other gun forums, but I did notice a few on other sites from here.
    But they are quickly warned.

    GlockForum.net is unique in that it's basically self govern by the members and just about anything is tolerable but it can reach that breaking point.
    By the way I was banned by the moderator because I dared to inform others this site is own by the same people who own multiple other gun forum sites and fudge the membership numbers to garner advertising revenue, or course this moderator used some other b.s. excuse.


    And the only reason I'm still interested in being on any gun forum is because of the amount of b.s. people are being fed by them.

    So there it is.

    Didn't catch you said in the last couple of weeks, so it hasn't been that long.

    There are a few members that are gone, maybe for the better. The one thing I've noticed since the takeover, is that this board isn't as fun as it use to be. Yes, sometimes the banter would get out of hand, but overall, I thought everyone got along fairly well.

    Time will tell what happens with the others and to this forum. I know I don't spend as much time on here like I use to.

    a number of gun sites are all owned by the same co. but so are restaurants and chain stores. advertising keeps the doors open and gives us a place to talk so I'm all for it I for one want to thank them mods and owners for allowing us to have a place to trade ideas

    Understood.

    And like the gun manufactures themselves you'd have to craw fairly deep to find any of them doing anything for gun rights.
    It's all about the money otherwise you would not have a company form a socialist country like Canada with strict gun laws owning American gun forums.
    And if they banned guns in America they'll switch to a 'stick & rock' forum and keep the ka-ching flowing.


    As to the second part of your comment I could imagine if this place ever shut down of few of you would go on a drunk while others might commit suicide.

    some of these guys drink while posting, to each their own. business is business. down town dallas is 40% german owned and a big part is Japanese. America is a great place to invest because of its stability and the internet is no different. in the beginning it wasn't but as time went on it settled and people are more comfortable ordering on line. as I said I hope they mke some money and we have a place to enjoy or rights of free speech
