I can understand why you locked the "BIGPIG" thread. I can also understand why you locked the other "multiple" threads. What I can't understand is why we don't address the original problem tonite. Moderator selection is as important as administration. I realize moderating a board takes a lot of ones time, A MODERATOR IMMEDIATELY INDICATING "I'LL LOCK THIS THREAD AND TAKE IT UP WITH SOMEONE ELSE (GoatBoy)" IS WHAT CAUSED THIS. Maybe we should institute some kind of formal policy on moderator selection. I've seen it work before. Regards Chip

The rules need to be followed on BOTH sides.

I don't personally feel that BigPig should have locked that thread but.....who cares. The BOTD type threads have degenerated into "how long can we keep this going till it gets locked?" Steyr's outburst bought him a one way ticket, he prolly had that coming. I enjoy this site too much to get caught up in a cival war over soft-core porn. Plenty of places to go for that.

I for one love the 'babe' threads. Lately with the 'rule' change its is hard for everyone to know what rules are current. Then when threads get long, the Mods have to check compliency. I love the fact to be able to stay on AR15 and check out the babes. Maybe it is finally time for a forum dedicated just to 18+ stuff. Have each user say ok to something to say they are over 18 and have no mods in there.... Just a suggestion. This will clear out the GD area. I can see Garandman smiling now... [;)]

Well it's been fun thanks. Again, Perfect 10s was NOT started to attack anyone but raise the standard and keep compliant. My opinion of PIG remains about the same. My post did not deserve to be locks and I did NOT "launch 5 topics to show your stance..." I posted ONE topic because I was so BAFFLED by why my post got locked. Editted to add, posted on my wifes account since I am banned. -SteyrAUG former AR15.commer

... Holy Cow! [b]SteyrAUG[/b] had 3362 posts before he was killed. He'll be missed. Too bad he just didn't get a warning. Oh well, when in Rome... We'll miss his arsenal pix and lively dialog.

If you don't like the conduct rules here or the membership policy then leave. It's that simple.

I think that if bigpig would have had a legitimate reason for locking the thread there wouldn't be a big stink right now, steyr's thread was following the rules. Theres a few of us that would like an answer to bigpigs locking of the thread besides a "pre-emptive strike" idaho-ar15

I am still trying to figure out why the hottie of the day thread was locked. I really do not care for those type of threads, but that is just me. Rules are made to be pushed, rule makers enforce the rules, someone gets to be the example, and then everyone gets the message. I think that Goatboy has a thankless job. He serves a needed function. The results of his work go unnoticed by all users. I am glad that some one else is willing to take out the trash/keep things above the belt. However, getting in a bad mood and letting that spill over into your enforcement of the rules is unprofessional. It is something that a 5 yr old would do to his 3 yr old brother when mom says he cant play with his toys anymore but does so when mommy is outta sight. I feel for the job you have to do, but remember that you will gain the respect of those who you enforce the rules upon more with diplomacy than with anger.

SteyrAUG banned? You've got to be shitting me! For what? Maybe I've missed something in transit, but it seems to me he had a right to question the "top ten" thread being locked. I'm not trying to just talk shit for no reason here, but it seems to me that the thread was within the "guidelines". Am I incorrect? I know a "moderator" decided it wasn't, but even goatboy said that he knew it was going to be interesting putting this mod in GD for the first time tonight. It seems that even the moderators can't even agree what the "guidelines" are. I guess in the end it doesn't really matter, since it is after all a private message board and you who have the power can do whatever you wish. But when people try to stay within the perimeters of your guidelines, and then still get their threads locked by a moderator, they should at least be able to ask why. I'm not trying to talk shit. But overall this seems pretty trivial to ban someone over. Again, maybe I missed something inbetween threads.

You guys are cartoons.Bring Steyr Aug back. He was far more entertaining than Goatboy's description of his pubes, and not mean spirited or power drunk.

SteyrAUG was one of the most productive posters here. His post are educational, entertaining, and informative. All the reasons people come to AR15.com. It appears this all started becuase a moderator didnt follow the rules. He closed a topic that was not in violation of the TOS. Some people then started funny topics that illistrated this point, such as "goat of the day". That is called satire.

Subject: Proverb of Ass An old man, a boy and a donkey were going to town. The boy rode on the donkey and the old man walked. As they went along they passed some people who remarked it was a shame the old man was walking and the boy was riding. The man and boy thought maybe the critics were right, so they changed positions. Later, they passed some people that remarked, "What a shame, he makes that little boy walk." They then decided they both would walk! Soon they passed some more people who thought they were stupid to walk when they had a decent donkey to ride. So, they both rode the donkey. Now they passed some people that shamed them by saying how awful to put such a load on a poor donkey. The boy and man said they were probably right, so they decided to carry the donkey. As they crossed the bridge, they lost their grip on the animal and he fell into the river and drowned. The moral of the story? If you try to please everyone, you might as well kiss your ass good-bye.

Make SteyrAug a Moderator, problem solved. He seemed to me more level headed than most of the current Moderators, and on pretty much the same level as the average poster. I respected him and his opinions. Did SteyrAug pose a threat to the current Power Gods because of his fellow posters respect for him?....BEWARE LORDTRADER YOU ARE NEXT!!![:D]

The babe of the day thread has been banned on twenty different boards – Hell even Kyle from the [H] had to ban it and he runs a forum that specializes in teenybopper crap. Bottom line – This is a firearms forum. The image has to stay clean and professional or this place gets 'labeled'. WAKE UP you whinny little bitches. /me just waiting to be called a newbe...

[blue] [size=4] I agree completely! I could not really blame Steyr for getting pissed. He did try to stay within the posted rules. Anyway, I have a question, If you are a paying member, will you get a pro-rated refund if your account is nuked??? I have long wanted to get "on board" but this question has long been bugging me especially since there may be a moderator that is just itching to lock me out. Lately, I have not been posting much and I try to get along with everybody but it is just ridiculous to think that I, like everybody else can always be a pacifist. There will come a time someone will push the wrong buttons at the wrong time and I will react accordingly with extreme prejudice. As I have said before, in discussions board like this, facts and rhetoric are the only weapons permitted. But what if I get into an argument with an [red]"unarmed"[/red] member or [b]moderator[/b], can I use self defense as an excuse??? [/blue] [/size=4]

From the title of the post you look like you left out the "Neener Neener". GoatBoy you seem to be taunting a response from the masses; which makes you look as childish as the ones you feel the need to banish. Maybe a title of "Why I did what I did" would be a little more respectable. I am like the a lot of the other responders here in the fact that I did not frequent the BOTD threads. Don't get me wrong I like skin and deep, explicit hard core porn with extreme....(never mind!) as much as the next guy but, I saw no problem with those threads (mainly because I did not look at them) If you know you're not going to like what you're gonna see [B]DON'T LOOK[/B]. I see your need police the board and your jack booted moderators to designate a real need for there existence (much like government workers). Enough said.

I don't get it. The mods let Neo-Nazis (area88) and Pro-Talibaners (Invictus) run around spouting their garbage. Yet, they ban one of the best members here (SteyrAug). [Edited To Remove Anti-Mod Sentiment]

Unlock Steyr Aug and ask him to return to this forum. He is one of the best members here and this site will not be the same untill he returns and returns as Steyr Aug. This site has become more and more moderated for a while now, and locking a tread because a mod thinks it is going to need locking soon anyway is just too much. What may just happen if this keeps up is people may stop posting and this site will die a slow death. This used to be a fun place to spend some time but lately things around here are not as much fun.
