I don't know what steps have been taken, but the result seems to be a better environment around here. Thank God political season is pretty much over for a while...Geo

Ironically, the NKVD monitor is not being moderated at all. The relative calm has been achieved by stifling opinion that the proprietor disagrees with.

I disagree in that members expressing opinions on both sides of the political spectrum have had posts moderated. I'm all for the clean up.

More than once I have considered leaving this forum but hung in there hoping for a change. Hopefully in time if this site remains civil many will rejoin us.

Definitely works best if it remains a "no politics" zone. Obviously, we're all here because we own, use, and enjoy guns. Enjoy discussing and learning about guns. There are other places for the other stuff.

discussing politics is fun, entertaining and educational...

too bad some here cannot refrain from personal attacks...

would like to see a return of the misfires forum, but without the personal attacks...
