Seriously, between Maser, the Euro trolls, etc. the Gen Disc. section has turned into a cesspool. This is a major turn off both for veteran members, advertisers, and new recruits.

I'm a pretty laissez-faire guy, and I've been known to wade into the mire every now and then and slay a couple of these nitwits. But seriously, GD is the first forum most members (new and current) go to. Do we really want them to see nothing but trolls and flames on our own front door?

There's a place for that kind of stuff, and that's down in the RH.

Ask your favorite Mod to start culling threads and banishing the trouble makers to the roadhouse.

Heck, just going through and banning the trolls who were banned on the old gunsnet would solve at least the Maser thing.

Actually......most everyone here has broken the rules set forth by David.

Read this on the register page.

By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.

The Road house should now be home to 90% of members.

I'm a new recruit - it's a great site. Just one small matter. You have a militant homosexual running about talking obsessively about bottoms. See here (http://www.gunsnet.net/showthread.php?968-Why-the-brits-hate-us......&p=14237&viewfull=1#post14237) in response to my first post.

I'm cool about it - it reflects well on Gunsnet that you welcome sexual minorities and allow them to debate their interests. But I was a little surprised that my first post - non-trolling, non-argumentative, friendly - was met with militant bottom-obsessing.

Might a quiet word be had with him, explaining that not all new members share his interests?

There are lots of folks on here that I disagree with, but I would never ask for them to be banned. Why? Because they're not here to troll.

Phil, Helen Keller, gun=limpdick, etc. are all here for one reason: to troll other members and be a destructive force in this community. I understand that Gunsnet isn't like other forums where you get banned for sneazing improperly, and I like that. On the other hand, there comes a point where you have to acknowledge that certain people are only here to cause trouble and need to be removed.

This forum is the reincarnation of a venerable online community, coming back together after being scattered to the four winds. Some may consider it useful to have outsiders to hate. It's part of a bonding process. Stalin deployed the same technique with his attacks on "wreckers" and "anti-Soviet forces."

Group-hate, intolerance, paranoia, calls for authoritarian action, etc., are part of that bonding exercise. I think it's a daft strategy and doesn't have the support of forum management (http://www.gunsnet.net/showthread.php?981-What-did-Obama-Inherit-From-Bush&p=14714#post14714).

Indeed, I'd argue that the truly "destructive" force in this community are the small-minded, authoritarian, irrational and paranoid troll-hunters. But I understand why they do it.

Plus it's deeply humourous watching alleged freedom-loving capitalist libertarians behave like Russian Communist Party officials, circa 1950.

You do know you are painting this community with a very wide paint brush. Guns Network has always been an international community. Thing is don't let your personal swagger get the best of you as you have not dealt with many of our ol timers yet, when it comes to your "obvious" baiting. May I suggest a different color bait?

At one time this website was consider one of the most dangerous websites in the world to visit, still don't know what they were trying to mean in that guys book. But anyways we got labeled the title years ago and we have been around a long while, We have been around since 1995 and AK-47.net since 1999. This community is missing right at about three million posts and over a million threads. So we have paid our dues over the years.

It's also why it's amusing to watch these alleged "libertarians" call for bans and ignore lists - like Stalinist secret policemen - when brought into contact with a tiny site, barely a few weeks old, with a few socialists buzzing about.

Can you see my point? Your guys need to relax: uncircle the wagons, laugh at their daft paranoia, and enjoy the internationalism.
