    Someone got my info again so I have been trying to get a lighter footprint on the web by getting all of my personal info off websites that I rarely frequent.... like a forum not to be named. I was deleting post with phone numbers, personal identifiers, pictures of things in the yard, things I had bought, guns I had owned.

    You guessed it. Threads all locked. I left a lot of stuff there without deletion, so this pissed me off. Being the petulant little arse I am, I decided to take the high road and welcome the first three or four pages of new members a warm welcome.

    You sir could very well be my long lost twin. Sounds like something I would do.

    That's why I spent several days over there, immediately post-meltdown & edited every single one of my posts that I could find to a simple "x".

    I was fine with staying over there and not being a butt head until they pulled that crap. So now I will become a very active greeter. I will also be getting up with all the local ones and converting them slowly to the dark side.

    I don't know that you're so much a dick as being engaged with people who may not know better.

    After I 'left' I was going back for a while just to delete my posts, ESPECIALLY anything with any personal information (like posts where I put pictures from my PB account, general location, name, what guns I owned etc)

    Not been there in six months (approx) - hope they've felt the sting of their decisions to sell

    I think they are getting the message. Looked pretty dead over there. I will return every day or so to welcome the any new members though. It is only fair that they are told upfront that their intellectual property and images are not theirs.

    I am gonna start a thread for a meetup in about a month for all the ones close to Raleigh, Durham, CHill and get to "know them". I hope I don't accidentally mention this place. That would be so uncouth.

    I'm still a bit pissed over a thread that should have been deleted but is still up, but since I was "discouraged" I didn't get to use your idea...

    What thread?



    I'd say 9/10 (if not 10/10) of their top posters jumped ship and are here now...thats a big chuck of posts everyday.

    I was nowhere close to the top, and I think I averaged about 10 posts a day, so people like Chikn/GH, Lawless etc must have had a HUGE impact.

    Proof of how slow it is...just check the chat box. You can usually scroll back 3-5 days or more, where here you're lucky to go back 3-5 hours.

    Eff that site. Quit giving them the traffic by even going over there. Not worth the time or effort.

    Oh I am hell bent on recruiting now. Really looking forward to meeting some of the new firearms enthusiast and sharing some of the sage wisdom I have learned here. Never know, they may find this Eden without help.

    Wyatt, can you not edit your posts over there or are you super-duper extra perma-banned?

    I tried to check back a couple of times shortly after I left, and the site was so slow (for whatever unknown reason), I just gave up.

    The top 20+ posters over there came here when this site came online. The sound heard over there was not unlike the last water draining from a bathtub.

    You will find the section on preservation of intellectual property enlightening. @Elenaidan

    Folks (especially the new converts and refugees). You should have read the terms of service when they bought them to begin with, it may not have taken as long to see the writing on the wall for what was inevitable.

    I'll admit, I was pissed when all that happened with the "other" site. I was trying to figure out where I'd end up until a got a discreet PM about this site! This place is better than the old one ever was!

    Well, it's got a bad name here at my house, and I've called several bad names! I used my t shirt to wipe my hands off when I changed the oil in my Jeep!

    Two weeks before the exodus admin started complaining that the place had to have a PG rating. That was a clue that was overlooked.

    I set the hat on fire and posted the video within minutes of receiving @Silver_Bullet call to arms.
    I don't £¥¢k around, last thing this country would ever want is me toting the football. You think DJT is impulsive? Pffft!
