I disagree, samD

I think deleting posts of people who are not as eloquent as others, or opinions of people who advocate going further than we do is wrong. Sure, MannyG is a fucktard, but his opinions are just that. While moderators on this site are not acting as agents of the government and therefore are not violating anyone's first amendment rights by censoring their posts, MannyG is not violating the rules of this forum any more than I just did by calling him a fucktard or with my pissing contests with LLE, BenJB, NavySeal, or any of the legions of others I have used profanity with. While part of my reason for disagreeing is because it is fun to have fucktards to gang up on, the biggest reason is that this should be a place for people to read and post their opinions. LLE and I have not posted anything directed toward one another since our last pissing contest, and that is a demonstration of how to deal with forum members who you don't want toshare your thoughts with. I do agree fully with deleting posts, topics, pics, and vids when someone is obviously trying to boost their "ranking points", but that's it. Just my thought.

I have to agree

with runaway,
I do not know the pretenses moderators have, or the powers that be, but opinions are allowed here. Threats are not. I think MannyG is a lost soul looking to get rid of his fucktard status, if only he would read and contemplate what others are saying, he might learn something. But then maybe that is what he fears...

my opinion

I havn't deleted any of manny's postings....yet. I think everyone has the right to post whatever they want, as long as its within the context of the forum topic, stays within the rule guidelines of the site, and doesn't promote any illegal activity.

saying that... some of his posts have made threats and implied other acts of violence. I WILL personally delete those comments if I come across them. We are a site where gun enthusiasts can come together and discuss a number of topics... but not a place to make threats against our governmet or its officials, nor are we a recruitment center for a private army. There are plenty of high schools for that. I'm against any comments that will bring unwanted attention. If you havn't noticed, I won't even post in a thread if anyone talks about any illegal activity, even in a joking manner. Since this site is most likely monitered, all threats will be taken seriously... you don't joke about a b*mb on an a!rpl@ne.

To sum it up, I have no problem with him (or anyone else) staying and practicing their first amendment rights... as long as it isn't too extreme, illegal discussions, and is relivant to the topic being discussed. I think its unfair to shun everyone away who doesn't share your (or my) same beliefs

I was trying to make him go away. we really don't need his kind of extremism. I monitor him and if it is too far out, I will continue to delete it for the good of our community. If anyone doesn't want me to delete his ravings just let me know and The republic will rule. This is not a Democracy it is a benevolent dictatorship... lol

and Manny is advocating and pushing for just that. He's also made real-time threats against the government advocating, in one case, a missile strike. That scares the hell out of me because I have no interest in being associated with that kind of attitude or those kinds of threats. I think he's a nut job myself and I figure he does not have the means, the wherewithall, or the brains to carry out anything serious. Bt you never know, and our monitors, should they be eye-balling us, are not going to take his threats lightly.

Also, just for the record, there is a big misunderstanding about the first amendment (just as there is the 2nd) and that is that the amendment prevents the US government from preventing you from saying your opinion in a public forum. By 'public forum' they don't mean a forum like this (just like a militia does not mean the National Guard), they mean a soabbox on public land. So you can't prevent the Hare Krishnas from soliciting in a publicly owned airport, but you can prevent them from soliciting in a privately owned mall. The point is that we are not violating anyone's 'rights' by removing their posts here. They do not have the 'right' to post anything they want here.

Just my opinion. I have no authority here at all.

but I see no problem with individuals saying what's on their mind. If MannyG makes specific threats, "I'm going to plant a bomb in the treasury building", "I'm going to kill (insert public official) on Wednesday, April 32", etc... then sure, delete the post or even copy and forward it to the proper authorities. But by saying he thinks someone should die or a missile should hit the federal reserve to stop the meeting between Obama, the Illuminati, and Belgbog the Meaningless from the planet Weeowurt to discuss pretty tasting elephants in fiery pink underwear, I don't see him as being a problem. There is nothing wrong with his militia recruitment efforts as I can't imagine any member here excpet maybe BenJB or NavySeal joining up. I say let our senses of humor flow, allow Manny's bullshit to come out, and make fun of him. The feds aren't going to shut this site down, neither Quinton, Marvin, Reaper, nor samD are going to be indicted for Manny's shit, so let's all calm down, okay?
