WOW Its really sad when you ask a moderator a simple question as to why your classified ad gets deleted and only to have him ignore it completely and then when you ask for a response he attacks you personally. Well I will not have any part of a forum that is rude to its members especially when they ask you to do the job they are paid to do. Ill have none of that. If anyone would like copies of the responses i recieved from Stokes the moderator please ask.

Many mods seem to take thier position way too seriously. It's kinda thier time to play judge, jury and executioner in a mall ninja sort of way. This sin't the firsttime I've hard about such occurnaces ther. Never cared for that forum myself as too mnay seemed to be of the AR elitist crowd. say anything derogetory against an AR and you're...poof

Well, Cowart....

Here's your chance to start over again. Right here. Post your classified in the Buy/Sell forum and let's see what happens here...

If there isn't a problem, then you'll prove your point.
If there is with the ad, mods here will surely edit it and be more than happy to explain why and treat you in a professional manner.

Either way, it's a win/win situation. You can sell your item here. You're a member of a very good and fair forum to post a wide variety of topics including AR15 subjects.

What can go wrong? So, let's see what you have for sale...members are standing by...
If it were up to me, the word "got" would be deleted from the English language.

Posting and YOU:

Heh, over at Silencer Talk there is ALLOT of talk. Most, if not all, is justified criticism.
I don't carry a gun to go looking for trouble, I carry a gun in case trouble finds me.

I had an ad locked over on AR15.Com for violating the 72 hour rule. Well, somebody can't count, cause I was well past the 72 hours.

I notified the mod. of this and heard nothing, my ad still stayed locked.

I violated the 72 hour rule LIKE A DUMMY (hint, hint), my thread was locked and that was the end of it. I'm still a member and have done a couple of nice gun deals since then. No biggie. It's a HUGE website so I guess they're not perfect.

Sorry, no forum wars allowed on TFL.
Did you know that there is a TEXAS State Rifle Association?
