Actually I dont think he has started a thread on this topic. You have heard the negative feedback from so many people it may be all running together, but I dont think he has started a thread on this.

Damn..........just damn. A lock a day and then some? We used to go for months without locks. Now we cant get through a day.

I got an email telling me FAL FILES WA section is pretty dead. Maybe they wouldnt mind people chatting about this, that or friggin lawnmower engines without the lock a day and then name calling on top of it.





BTW- Name calling is verbotten.

How extraordinary that you should mention that. One of the Oly employees is scaling up an AR15 to shoot .50BMG. For the gas rings on the bolt, he used the piston rings from a weedeater engine. So the diameter of the bolt carrier hole was determined by the diameter of the cylinder in a weed eater motor. The bolt carrier is going to be something like 1.5" diameter. The upper sitting on the lower is going to look like the Super Guppy airplane. It will use Barrett magazines.

I looked at that locked thread.
It seems that it was only a statement of a need and a question as to where that need might be met.
No WTB/WTS, just a quest to solve a problem.


Need a new engine for my shredder. 1" shaft. Anyone have one or know where I can get a used one at a reasonable price in the King/Peirce/Sno county area
Thanks


Isn't that what the HOMETOWN Forums are FOR?

There's a thread about Hometowners getting a table at the WAC show...that's a little different.
My .02 isn't worth a penny.

I haven't mentioned this until now, I haven't even posted about it except in jest.
Learn to read who started the fucking posts that you have locked or moved.

I guess I'll start whining now also.

It seems to me that all the locks and moved threads started about the time of the last site upgrade. Before then there was not many locks, and I don't remember any threads being moved. Maybe I'm just noticing it now.

I have seen ad-hominem style attacks...

Contrary to moderator belief, I'm not "Full of shit". I just point out that perceptions can be perceived as truths. Its one thing to say someone is a jackass, rather than pointing out their actions may have them be percieved as a jackass in the future. See the difference?

What is with calling everyone a whiner anyway?

PCR-00 has had many locks. Ask him.

You didn't see moves until the site upgrade. Now the software provides a link to where the thread was moved. People can still go to the thread and post in it. I guess it makes more sense to just complain about it instead though.



Other than those locks that is

JAFO, I'm not attacking you. I don't see the need to be patronizing or defensive.....it only serves to undermine your arguements.

Link Posted: 8/14/2005 8:38:43 PM EDT
I think JAFO has a good point in quote "Since people want to bring attention to the violation I had to trash it." Seems to me that often people say shit like "Take it to EE, or GD".

Well if we don't want it locked or moved don't post as such. We were not (shiting in each others threads) doing this shit six months ago.

A few months ago there was so much shit in HTF that it looked like a fucking zoo(GD). So on one hand I like the fact the jafo cleaned some of the zoo. But on the other we and JAFO need to start working together and make this the fun HomeTown it used to be.

No, I stopped being the WA hometown forum mod due to a certain asshat moderator in the general discussion forum and his lock and delete happy ass.

Oh crap! You guys have seen me shoot. I would mod the computer section, but a HTF.



HELL NO!!!!!!!!!!
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 2:35:35 PM EDT
The way I see it as a long timer, but more of a reader and thinker than a poster is that Jafo has a thankless job and sometimes he has to step on the toes of those with whom Arfcom is not just a place to visit, find information, buy the occasional toy, but more of a lifeline to the world they might not otherwise have a path to. So of course there are going to be those who feel their main source of entertainment, perhaps even line of communication to the outside world, is being infringed on in much the same way that the party line was once the only form of outside communication they had, and was taken away with the advent of modern telephone switching.

what I am saying is this.

He has a mandate given him from the site staff.
Run the HTF in the manner he see's fit, don't let things get out of control, and try to be as even handed as you can.

come shall we lend him the good graces of all men who presume to be adults?

Who gives a fuck about any of this whining. Its not like we're curing cancer or something. Strat has it right with a proper quote as usual.

For the few of you that don't like the way JAFO runs this board.....

Do you thank that if JAFO was replaced that the new Mod is not going to be a hard ass? Most likely we will get someone from out of state that does not give a shit about you or this forum and be a lock and move whore.

I thank we should let these anti JAFO threads die for a while and see how things go. It's not that hard.

Proposed course of fire--five yards at a B-27 target. First to score three hits in ten minutes has to moderate WA HTF. JAFO goes first, since he's the one-man Mod Squad.


JAFO, you can borrow my Charles Daly Field-Grade 12 ga pump. We'll load you up with some #9.
