When someone buys a gun, they're usually pretty happy about it and they often want to share.

What they don't want is someone jumping on them for buying (the wrong kind of gun/from the wrong store/in the wrong caliber/made of the wrong material/with the wrong finish/etc.).

So, when someone is posting about their new gun, it's not the time to tell them how bad they screwed up for not doing things the way you would. That's rude and likely to get a sharp response.

Rude posts and sharp responses make members unhappy and make unpleasant work for the staff cleaning up threads and infracting members who've broken the rules.

So, when a mod sees someone about to step on a snake, they might call out a warning. The fact that the member in question may not see the snake doesn't mean that the warning was unwarranted.
