...pretty much all I see on this board is about 75% jerks, and about 25% people that are actually involved 'positively' in the conversations...
I read some things from some people that seems sincere enough, then some other person replies with, "Dude, stop whining you bitch... Didn't your mother stop breast feeding you already?"...
Or, "Man, why don't you shut the fuck up, your opinion smells of shit"....

Mike.

I am serious here.

Posting stuff like this is like putting blood in shark filled waters. You are just asking to get your a$$ bit off. You are dealing with people who concentrate here out of a love for weapons. There won't be many tender moments here, ok?

Peace, love, and understanding are not the rule at ARFCOM.

Unless it is peace through superior firepower.

Just trying to help you out.

Another subtlety that many don't get. I call people all sorts of horrid names and make merciless fun of them.

I do this because I LIKE them.

If I didn't like them, I wouldn't bother talking to them at all.

It is disheartening. I agree.

When I first got online a good friend of mine spoke of online ettiquette and said a wise thing: He said, treat others and chat with them as if they were in the same room with you. Otherwise don't say anything to anyone that you wouldn't say in person.

Good advice.

The people who treat people like shit online wouldn't have the sand to do so in person for fear of getting their ass kicked.

Do what I do about it, don't engage with a person who flames you, just act as if they never posted.

Ignore them and their posts forever from that point on.

Don't give their posts any respect by posting back to them.

The moment they say make it personal, ignore them.

Welcome to the human race...

...in all seriousness, you need to realize that this is the way most all of the Internet boards are like. It's people, not ARFcom. Posting stuff like this is just going to make it worse for you too. If your feelings are hurt so easily then I suggest you stop posting here. Nobody's forcing you to. Otherwise grow some thicker skin.

here's some good advice...something you might hear in a smoky church basement on a tuesday night around 7:30 or 8:00pm

"Take what you like, leave the rest". Pretty simple, really.

Here's some advice...post in the AR-15 forums...spend a little time talking about guns, which is the real purpose of this site You'll see a whole lot less "assholiness" there than you will in the general board. But when you post something that looks like trolling in the GD, you're gonna get stomped.

Personally, I think they should lock the GD to noobs, 'til they have at least 100 posts about gun related stuff...so just be glad I'M not running things.

There are prime examples of this throughout the board but you have to ignore it. In our personal life we have the choice of who to direct a question to, on an internet board your question is up for EVERYONE to see, so you'll draw those unwanted "opinions" too.

Damn, you seriously have the EXACT mentality of a socialist don't you?

I read your other thread about how Bush was taking away every one's jobs and just like you blame your job woes on Bush (or your RN friend's job problems), now you're trying to blame the fact that you're still posting here, on the fact that the mods haven't banned you yet.

It's not the mods resposibility for what YOU post or don't post. It's YOUR responsibility. Just like I don't want the government babysitting me and making my decisions for me, the mods here don't want to babysit YOU or make your decisions for YOU. If you don't like it here then go away.

Uhm - if you are referring to your "outsourcing" thread (which I didn't post in, btw) you'll notice that there WAS a substantial conversation going on about the mertis of the arguments (with some namecalling "noise" overlaid on that).

The problem is that your fundamental argument was weak, that many of your examples were flawed, and that the solutions you suggested very vague and often didn't make any sense. There was nothing wrong with the "conversation" but you just had a poor position.

So if you're saying that you don't want to hang out on a site where people won't let you get away with making weak and unsupported arguments, then that's your choice - and indentifies you a big whiny baby. If on the other hand, you can handle the facts that (a) you are not always right, and (b) some people on this site may be more knowledgable than you about thing you think you understand, and (c) people will disagree with you, then you shoudl absolutely be part of the conversation.

It's all up to you. Are you a big baby, or are you able to stand on your own and participate?

Perhaps you should re-evaluate the way you're looking at this.
