I've had an account at SigForums for a year or so. I just went to log-on there and it said my account has been suspended. The only thing I can think of is they saw a post I made a few weeks ago on AR15.com where I said the Sig Forum moderators were control freaks. It was in a thread here on AR15.com where a bunch of people were talking about all the gun forums that had ass_clown moderators.

Anyone one else been banned from Sig Forums?

If it is as you say, I guess they proved your contention.

we don't care what happened to you on the other board

I'm one of the "good" members, come to think of it, I registered years ago around the same time (+-) I have had my ARfcom username.

The SIG forum folks are like the Humvee.net, Ferrari and Lambo forums crowd, quite a lot of older and more serious group of people.

I only visit the forums when I have to PM a few members, make a few posts and whatnot....

Good luck.

What took so long?

Far as I'm concerned, being a member in good standing of SigHeilForum is an indication of poor character.

Honestly... I do think they kicked me off for that. The only other forum that has bigger ass_clowns for moderators is 1911forum.com.

I just emailed them and asked. I'll let you know what they say. Maybe it was an honest mistake on their part.

Funny how the only thing they are doing is proving your very point....

never been to the sig forum, but if they're anything like the sig owners i have run into at the range, they have a SERIOUS holier-than-thou attitude.

nothing like having some rich dentist with a sig look down his nose at my beretta. I just outshoot him and shut him up quick

HAHA that's funny..... yeah I don't post much on there because of the attitude I've seen..... Don't care for it.


SIG vs beretta?

I'll take the beretta. I've personally owned both, my elite 2 beretta 92g(costs the same as the 226) outshot the 226 hands down. Made the sig 226 look like a bitch. on top of that, I had my former sig 226 jam on me before and the beretta on the other hand just keep on going. For those who are going to bash beretta and are devote sig owners, I'd look before I leap.

I never had much use for Sig Forums. They can go ahead and ban me too if they read this.
That said, I love my SIGs...
Link Posted: 2/27/2006 2:00:52 PM EDT
They're OK over there. Not the kind of guys I'd go shooting with and have a beer afterwards but they know alot about Sigs.

Welcome to the club.

I got banned 2 years ago due to some kid who decided I was an easy mark and launched a serious personal attack on me. I mean like 7 or 8 really inflamitory attacks to me.


I sent an email to the stupid kid asking him to tone it down, that the internet was not untraceable and that spouting off and threatening me would be taken seriously, no matter if his parents knew about it or not. That he could be tracked back to his IP and that I *could* find him if I wanted.

I guess the staff is about 10 years old as well.

I have zero time to waste on them or the idiot posters.

The place is a waste of bandwidth and a good domain name.

Where is that middle finger smiley at???
Link Posted: 2/27/2006 2:04:35 PM EDT
If you're not a control freak, you shouldn't be a moderator. There are too many undisciplined people on the web.

I didn't have any problems with the mods or anything like that... it was a real PIA trying to read the message boards.

Wow...I'm a member of Sig AND S&W, and parabellum owns both. Never had an OUNCE of trouble, and they are very well run-no b.s.-sites.

To each their own I guess.

I love both those boards.

Which proves your statement to be true..long arms that banned you for violating their terms of service on another board. Amazing.

Control freaks...yessir, they are.

No reason, no explanation and no response to repeated emails.

Only time I ever had a problem with them, they had banned an IP range because someone with a similar IP had been causing them trouble.

I emailed them, got reinstated shortly afterwards.

I wonder where else I'm "preban"ed from.

But seriously. How the fuck could they ban my email address when I never registered before?

Anyboby from over there know?

IIRC, I got banned for trying to get people to write their legislators to seek the sunset of the AWB.

I'm a real revolutionary trouble maker I guess.

SigHeilForums suxxor.

I was inolved in a nasty discussion here a while back. And moderators from other boards were watching. Dude, I got hella banned before I could even join other boards. Sig, calguns and a couple others blacklisted my ass wit a quickness.

I asked hey yeah wanna shoot it ? he was shooting a P229

Not necessarily.

You can also be a member in good standing if you have made like 3 posts over there in your entire life.
