I hope you are not wasting any time over at glock talk. I have a G19 and posted a few things over there. One day I got a notice from the moderator. He was DEMANDING that I change my signature line. Someone complained that my signature line upset him. My signature line was to honor those killed on September 11 2001. The signature line simply stated the number of people killed, the number of airplanes crashed and that it was done in the name of islam. I asked the moderator to explain why I had to change the signature line. Everything stated was true. And since when did someones feelings come before my rights to free speech? The moderator deleted my signature line and a post asking him to give a reason why I had to change the signature line.

I don't like that, any more than the guys at ASSWEB censoring posts on their site after saying what great lovers of freedom they are. Nonetheless, boards are private affairs, and they don't fall under the first ammendment. Cheer up. You make a sign with your sig and stand on a corner somewhere. [;)] -legrue

TalonJ, They also censor here at AR15.com without explaining why.

Right on time and on topic...... I had the nerve to question why my posts were not going thru at [url=http://groups.yahoo.com/group/wa-ccw/?yguid=52687837]WA State CCW Page[/url] and got the following in an email.... Dear "thecavett", Your posts are being moderated by me, the list owner, because some of your posts in the past have been offensive. When I am forced to moderate a member's posts, I usually delete the ones that are off topic too. If you limit yourself to polite posts that are on topic, they will go through to the list with some delay. Feel free to unsubscribe if you do not wish to continue with this system. Sincerely, wa-ccw moderator This guy thinks refusing to go along with illegal searches is offensive? I forced him to moderate AND delete my 'OT" posts that are reply posts? I didnt know saying no to searches and replying to already listed posts was bad juju. I really like the last line, "FOAD".... What a crackhead.....

I own a list of my own with a few hundred members and whenever somebody gets out of line I usually contact them personally and work everything out. No moderating or anything else. Either behave or I'll boot your ass, but you'll always know what is going on and won't have to ask. Sounds like this guy's got little man syndrome. Hims just a wittle guy and now that he has a little authority he's going to make damn sure that everyone knows he's got it.

I haven't done anything yet to warrant censoring from this site but I see people getting censored on here all the time. People get in freakin arguments over it. Why must the Internet be so censored? The same "kids" who might see a curse word on a gun forum are the same ones looking up free porn. Censoring doesn't really solve anything, and it only makes me hate Hillary Clinton and Tipper Gore even more.

Another coincidence.....I sent him an email and told him a polite em,ail early on would have done wonders.... Figure he goes about 4'11"??? After my last email calling him rude, etc ALONG with a link to here, I have a funny feeling I will be banned. Too bad because I really liked the site, I had no ideal he was the reason all my posts disappeared. Shame on me and my free thoughts.... [b]FREE SOIL, FREE PEOPLE[/b][smoke]

Chalk up more allies for the terrorists. Anyone who is still politically correct after 9/11 is a terrorist sympathizer and should be treated accordingly.

I think Blaze got a raw deal. He should be allowed to face his accusers in a public forum.

BenDover Chalk up more allies for the terrorists. Anyone who is still politically correct after 9/11 is a terrorist sympathizer and should be treated accordingly. I agree. The bed wetting moderator at GT sent me a personal message. He claimed to be outraged about what happened on Sept 11 2001 but DEMANDED that I change the signature line. If you ask me the ?terrorist sympathizing moderator? must have been outraged that more Americans did not die on that terrible day. For the life of me I can?t understand how he could be so outraged and yet DEMAND my signature line be changed. How can someone side with those people? I wish I still had a copy of his personal message. I would send it to his advertisers.

If you want to see the work of busy moderators, go over to The Firing Line. On every page you will see at least 5 moved and 2 locked threads.

I got a PM from RAF when he had to delete a thread I started because someone [b]ELSE[/b] got out of hand. I would tend to think that the Mods here are pretty good about letting someone know what they did wrong, for the most part. BTW, IIRC, GlockTalk had an open period after 9/11 for [b]ALL[/b] comments people wished to make (within reason) about what had happened. I think Eric made the choice to let things settle back down after that. What (exactly) did your banned sigline say? We'll impartially let you know if it is offensive to us... Scott

Not offensive to me. But GT is not my personal property, so I guess not really my call on it. Did they tell you what offended them? The fact that you were honest about ISlam, or the did they think you were a supporter of the attack? Scott

Does anyone know what happened to the "Skulls" thread at Glocktalk last week? It dissapeared very quickly! No one said anything offensive, except for me, but I never got an email warning or anything. (I was the one suggesting that if he ever had wanted to skull **** someone that this was his chance). ????
