I haven't been on in a few days and can't help feel like I missed something big. Can some one fill me in?

From the AR15.com News Desk. [img]http://www.stopstart.fsnet.co.uk/smilie/singer.gif[/img] Umpteenth BOTD thread locked after X rated pics posted. SteyrAug starts "Perfect 10" thread. BigPig locks thread. SA goes ballistic and goes off on BigPig. Gets banned as result. Membership grows restless with moderators again. DonR threatens David_Hineline with account locking and loss of $60, causing much distress among other paying members. Did I miss anything? Remember, I am the media, so it isn't supposed to be accurate! [img]http://www.stopstart.fsnet.co.uk/smilie/singer.gif[/img]

Yeah, you missed the part where I said that I handled it badly due to the fact that Hineline has had a past record of showing little or no respect for the site or it's members.

On the third day, he arose and acesended into the heavens where he found many rifles awaiting him...he walked down the path that was laden with gold and ammo. When he arrived at the throne of the allmighty moderator, he paused.... "What have you come here for?" asked the allmighty. "I have come here for knowledge, wisdom, and insight..." replied Steyer. .....and then....

Sure. There were a whole bunch of non-firearms related topics in the GD forum. Bigpig decided he didnt like one or more of them, so he arbitrarily locked a thread that was not in violation of the terms of service. Lot's of people got upset that Bigpig has decided he can make the rules up as he goes, and close any thread he decides he doesnt like, reguardless of what the posted rules are.

Correct... Don should have just nuked him on site, but was kind enough to issue him a written citation instead! Mind you, this was citation #543722279. Lets just say that Hineline has a bunch of unpaid parking tickets, and eventually the meter-maid will give him the "Texas Boot"!

Platform - You have a gift, my friend. A concise yet thorough re-telling of the recent events. Ever considered a career in journalism???? Of course, since this soap opera has been played out a half-dozen times, you DID have plenty of chance to get the routine down to a few sentences. Still, well done. [:D]

Did someone say Civil War??? I've been waiting for this for 136 years. Well, so far in this thread there are 4 Yankees, 7 Rebels and 1 undecided (AR15fan, since I don't know where you're from). [flag]

Well, if Bigpig gets canned as a moderator, he'll probably be able to get work in the Office of Homeland Security.
