What's a drive by?

Had a thread closed in Legal & Political for being a "drive by" & was told to read the forum rules which apparently says nothing about this as far as I can tell.What is a drive by?

It is usually when some one posts a link to something else with no additional information or opinion. They make no assertions or opinions but just offer up some link (usually inflammatory in nature) and then leave others to make comments.

The sad thing is a lot of them would be good threads if the OP would just stand up and express an opinion.

The reason I didn't see this is because it isn't in the "Forum Rules" in the upper left part of the home page.It's too bad it was shut down just because I didn't offer up my opinion on the link,as it is quite relative to gun owners and specifically talks about people acquiring guns to defend themselves against those who didn't prepare.Oh well

There's a reason why certain of our forums have "stickies" by the mods of that forum. They are generally rules that pertain to that forum alone.

Unlike the real world, outside of this forum, we have few rules. Therefore, ignorance is truly no defense.

Not true. When a trial is necessary, court is held in the chamber three doors down on the left. The one with the big star over the doorway. Might be secret, but it is a trial by jury. You might be surprised how many are released from custody - and never even knew it!

I think the person has it all wrong. It is a DRIVE IN.

Those were places where you could go and get food delivered to your car by some cute young lady. They expected a nice tip.
