Discussing firearms, ammunition, hunting, firearms history, gun law, etc is fun and entertaining, at least to me.

This site is not like most of the others, in that it has higher standards of language, decorum, posting style, and content of those posts. Bad spelling and grammar, personal attacks on other members, and not following the content guidelines, among other things, are not tolerated.

This is the way the owner of this site wants it, to set a higher standard of discourse and to present an image of gun owners and the RKBA in the most positive light possible. Arguing about the jackbooted thugs of the UN invading the country to institute the New World order runs very much contrary to that goal.

Speaking only for myself, I take pride in trying to make my posts as courteous, well written and filled with factual and verifiable information as I possibly can. When people new to firearms google for information, TFL is usually one of the top results and that is because it is one of the very best places to have firearms questions thoughtfully and accurately answered.

I am sure you can see how presenting a polite, sane, and reasonable image of gun owners here at TFL, is important in promoting the idea that polite, sane and reasonable people own firearms.

OK, complaints have been aired and explanations have been given for why TFL is moderated the way it is.

Those explanations have been rejected as "lacking."

The only conclusion that I can draw from that is that the only explanation that will be acceptable is "We'll do it exactly the way you want us to do it."

Unless Rich agrees, that ain't going to happen.

So I see absolutely no reason for this thread to remain open.
