I'll stay. Thanx.
Most of us here on TFL use screen names and keep our real names to ourselves. Doctor Glenn E. Meyer Ph.D. however, does not. Doctor Meyer is a professor of psychology. For you, FoghornLeghorn, to claim that he is wrong, about his use of psychological terms is...I can't quite seem to think of a way to phrase it, without violating TFL rules against demeaning another member.

Which leads me to another point, TFL has very high standards of decorum. A higher standard than the rest of the internet and other venues of public discourse, such as politics and the media. Thats the way the owner of TFL Rich Lucibella and the long time members and staff want it. The 1st Amendment gives us the right to free speech, but it doesn't give us the right to be heard. Most especially when we are the guests, on a private web site. Why the high standard? because puriele bickering, conspiracy theories, discussions of politics and race and many other things, reflect poorly on gun owners and the RKBA.

So when the mods close a thread, warn members, etc it is because they are acting as agents of the owner and reflecting his wishes. Not because they are mean, small minded, or anything of the kind. In fact they are quite the opposite of any of those things.
