Why is it that a lot of things that people enjoy get ruined by assholes. Take Ar-15. This is my general question to any and all. Why does the whole board have to change because of one individual?? Yeah, people have gotten carried away time and again, but aren't they just having fun?? Wouldn't you think that posts like "babe of the day" would have had a lot more negative comments made about it if it were that big of a problem? One of the reasons I felt so comfortable getting on this chat board was it's openness. I liked the idea of being able to post just everyday topics as well as serious gun questions. Aren't you limiting yourselves by stifling the board? Aren't you just becoming like those you think are limiting our country? I'll also say this before I get off my soapbox. Yeah, I'm female and yeah sometimes I get annoyed at all the things I see dealing with naked or near naked women, but unlike many I know that most of it is just for fun. It's not to be taken seriously. I mean you can't exactly take that porn star home with you at night. Give them a break. [soapbox]

brouhaha-ette, Just to let you know... this happens all the time. Just sit back, go out to the range a little more often, relax, take a break. I have been a member/lurker here on AR-15 since 1999 (yes the old board). I was interested in AR for Y2K protection (I was a "sky is falling" wacko then). I have seen this board blow up more times than I can remember. I have now witnessed porn, scat, animal curelity, murder, blackmale, screaming arguments, people stomping off in discust and general mayhem. It is alot like the stock market, lots of up and downs. It will settle down in couple of weeks. In the mean time, sit back and laugh at the stupidity of others. About the only thing I haven't seen on this board is a "match make". i.e. a male board member and a female board member hook up and live happily ever after. When I see that, that will be the highest point of this boards history (in my opinion).

I agree, this boards format is the main I came over from the CSP board. I like it better here.

Thats what makes this site so special! I enjoy "babe of the day" All the other websites I belong to always have a positive thing to say about our semi to nude pics of girls.

You guys are talking like it's the end of AR 15.com. People are leaving, Moderators are quiting. What's the problem? Lordtrader posts porn everytime he posts. The people on AR 15.com have been adaptable. THAT is what I love about this place. Sure it has great info. Sure I can get mags and stuff cheaper here than if I tried locally. The bst thing about this site are people, no...the characters that post here. They find more loopholes than a liberal with the bill of rights can when trying to ban a .22 pelet gun. They have more counter measures than Airforce 1. Everyone should step back, take a deep breath then carry on.

AR15.com used to be a site dedicated to the adult discussion of firearms in general and AR15-type rifles specifically. I've seen it go from that to something akin to a cross between a junior high school boys's room and a porn site. Many of the knowledgeable people left in disgust. Maybe they will come back.

I have to agree with Guzzler. It goes in cycles. Sometimes I post and other times I just lurk, which is what I suspect a lot of the old AR15dotcommers still do. I watched the troll invade the perimeter the other night and was wondering how long it would take for him to be banned, deleted, shot or whatever. I just kept checking back every once in a while.
