I posted one titled “365 50 round drum magazine” earlier today. It has disappeared, did I break a rule or do something wrong?

"the meaning of life, is to give life meaning" I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

Thank you for the input. Obviously I haven’t been around long enough to know all the ins and outs. I am a willing subject/serf in a dictatorship . . . Got it.

Don't be an asshole. I deleted the post because we don't drive traffic to Cheaper Than Dirt. After Sandy Hook, those thieves were selling AR-15 magazines for more than a hundred bucks apiece.

Did it occur to you to give me a chance to answer, instead of turning into a fucking drama queen? You could have emailed me about this and you would likely have gotten a brief response. Naturally, there was no way for you to know our attitude towards that business, so, I probably would have told you the reason.

Dictatorship? Partner, you can kiss my lily white ass. That is uncalled for.

You let me know when you want to take charge and eat a ration of shit over nothing.

And just so there is no misunderstanding, you should know that the administration of this forum reserves the right to lock, edit, move or delete any posted content, for any reason whatsoever, or no reason at all, and we feel no obligation to provide you with the rationale for any such action we may take, but that doesn't mean that we never explain our actions. If someone appears to be trying to cause trouble, or if they make a habit of asking, they'll probably get silence as a response, but it is not our intent to fuck with members or be dismissive of them, whether or not you believe it.

I was just coming on to delete the post. It is never my intention to offend you or anyone else. Based on your comments on that website I certainly agree that they shouldn’t be supported, and will not be supported by me. Again, lots of stuff I don’t know. As much as I appreciate the offer I would prefer not to kiss your lily white ass.

One other thing. The title of this area is Sig Forum Office. Where member ask questions of the staff. I thought that is where I should post the original problem I was having.

Just as the last post says in the thread sigmonkey pointed you to- if there's a problem, I will let you know.

Otherwise, consider it plain old housekeeping. I delete far more posts than most members realize, and most members who get a post deleted don't ask. If I have to explain the reason for every single deletion, that's when you see the admin expressing frustration like you see in that thread.

Someone has to be in charge of a discussion forum. In this forum, that someone happens to be me, and I happen to think I'm a pretty good Goddamned shepherd.

My friend I am not disputing or challenging in any way. Glad to be here, willing to learn and hope I have something to offer.

Nice attitude. The man treats you with respect and this is how you respond? <smh>

Not cool.

I’m spending way more time on this that it deserves. Did you read the entire exchange?

1. I asked a question
2. Sig Monkey responded
3. I made a regrettable response (which I went back to remove 9 minutes later).
4. The Mod’s response called me an asshole, a fucking drama queen, eat a ration of shit & suggested I kiss his rear end.
5. I respond basically with Sir, yes sir.

It is his site and you and I are just visitors. My intent with the last comment was to lighten the mood, again not to offend him or you. However, if someone tells you to kiss their ass I suspect your reaction would be similar to mine.

Everything's fine. Over the years, I have developed an expectation that virtually everyone who shows up here is an experienced gun person. Along with this is an expectation that everyone here knows about the profiteering reptiles at CTD. Of course, this is not necessarily so, and I realize you meant no harm with posting a link to their site.

To be entirely fair, however, you did refer to this forum as a dictatorship and, by extension, to me as a dictator. This is what got you in hot water. I am not a dictator. Dictators can be deposed. If you wish to think of it in such terms, consider this forum a monarchy. It is certainly not a democracy. That would not work.

Just chalk all of this up to a lesson learned and the matter, closed.
