I had an odd thought this morning after reading all about the crap going on with ak47.net - where can you get banned faster? AK47.net or Democratic Underground?

How about we have a little poll/contest? Go to both sites and try to get banned and see how long it takes. Post your times here :)

Some suggestions for getting banned at AK - ask about the Kalashnikitty T-shirts original designer and why she isn't being compensated? Ask about Bowhunt/Dthor Navy SEAL days. Ask about Gary Gucciano. Mention how upset you are with Jen's treatment and blackmail.

As for DU - hell, just mention you like Republicans, guns, don't like gays, etc. - I'm sure you'll think of something.

Heh heh :)

I'm banned from both already. Posts at dot.nutz: 3000+, DU: 2.

In the words of a character played by a player who would characterize a politician.."I'll be back!"

Once, I went to DU, I was banned within an hour. I wasn't even trying to be banned, heck, my family is made up of Democrats who have been elected to office! I think they didn't like the fact that I like guns. It was four posts for me. The funny thing was that I put on a moderate persona, instead of my real "ravingly right wing" reality!
Link Posted: 9/23/2003 11:32:57 AM EDT
I got banned from DU in three posts.

And the kicker is, I was having a NICE, very polite and pleasant conversation with a member or two. Nothing to write home about. I was taking a moderate view, and being low key about it.

I don't think there's much that's funnier or more pathetic than a website where you will get banned for NOT holding a radical belief....ONE PARTICULAR radical belief, at that!

How can you expect to make any meaningful difference or have any meaningful conversations if the site administrators won't even allow more than one side of an issue to be discussed?

If that's how democrats really think, they're utterly doomed.

Hey! I DO like gays.

Does that mean I get banned from here?

boycunt hasn't banned me yet from his site... even though I've conspicuously posted info about the falfiles episode... but I think they tend to review new posts, so the old ones sit around for newbies who do searches to find.

Where is this "democratic underground" anyway? I'll have to go try to teach some sense to them, seeing as I used to be a democrat.

Good luck - I predict you'll be banned in under 20 posts. Those people don't listen to people who have sense, regardless of your past life as a democrat.

Ditto, I got locked in 12 posts. These guys are worse than Castro. No 2 sided conversations in there.

That was fun. Great idea Greywolf2112. You AK guys are all right. I may join the club some day. I do not count my Saiga .410

FWIW, one of the mods over at ak47.nutz is claiming that in the 10/6/03 Shotgun Guide they got a "five star rating".

Hmmm..... think its time to let the guide know about their complicity in the whole informer affair?

LOL, I was banned from ak47.net after about 6 posts. Guess I pissed a mod off after he got smart with me I returned the favor......what a bunch assholes they are over there. I was just banned at assualtweb.net for disagreeing with a mod there.....he banned me because I didnt agree with him. LOL oh well :) It makes me laugh, a place that supposedly supports the 2nd amendment says they dont allow free speech....what an idiot, they go hand in hand.

Is the "informer affair" the same thing as the KAG thing?

Thanks...
Link Posted: 10/3/2003 2:58:02 PM EDT

Yes. Informer is the name that Gary G. used on ak-47.net...

AFAIK, when he was taking money and guns but never sending anything back, anyone who pointed this out on this forum there had their posts deleted.

Eventually the Kansas attorney general stepped in and siezed everything.

But Ak-47.net was complicit in the alleged fraud for years. I say alleged only because I don't know for sure... but their behaviour is dishonest any way you cut it in my book. IF you're going to pretend to have an open, uncensored forum, and then selectively delete posts, leaving only glowing reviews (by people who hadn't gotten their rifles back!) you're helping to cover up the situation.

I think that the big difference is that Ak.net is accused of deleting posts for the purposes of making money, often times at the expense of their membership (Informer, Joeken, Tapco etc). Over here posts are deleted as a means of maintaining decorum. Its a fine line but, an important one.

Yeah, that was me.

I guess I couldn't take much more of those guys talking about their "Museum Section" in their safes. I just snapped when one of them jumped on madhatter for his pics. "Those stocks are fixed open, Right??"

Later on in that thread, the mod actually claimed it was their "JOB" to ask such questions due to all the ATF agents who are busting people for parts count violations. Well, since some of these guys are averaging 20 posts a day, it's obvious they have no other job!

Link Posted: 10/7/2003 5:12:15 PM EDT
Hey nursery, here's an idea.

Why not leave the other boards to their own business and mind your own? Hang out where you feel like, and enjoy it. Flaming DU people, and calling names on gunsnet solves absolutely nothing, changes nothing, does nothing.

Do you want DU and gunsnet people here stirring up trouble? I suspect not, so don't incite, invite or applaud your own for doing it to other boards.

Grow the fuck up. Start acting like decent gun owners instead of petulant, pissy diaper toddlers.

This thread is as silly and assinine as Westcoast/Eastcoast rappers killing each other over a fucking rap song, and to liken your actions to theirs should be taken as the ultimate insult, because I can think of nothing worse to be compared to.

Swingset - I do agree with that to an extent. If someone is just going in, trolling, and trying to start shit then yes, it is within that boards right and best interest to ban that person. However, if you would have witnessed some of the things that people were banned for at DU I think you would see that there is a difference. When they have a poll that asks "what is the hardest drug you have ever done" and gives a big ass list and that is ok, but ask someone if the second amendment applies to the state or the individual and you get banned for it? That is a little extreme to me when you are asking someone for their opinion to get a feel for the water and not being confrontational.

Ak47.net, never been there.

DU? 1st time, banned ("Tombstoned"), in 3 posts.

Second time, ditto!

Third time, 1,500+ posts and still alive.

Create an alternative poster account. Drive them nuts with good cop/bad cop posts. They have their own share of tinfoil hat and conspiricay theory types.

I won't diginify that unintelligible nonsense with an insult, for I fear it might skate right past you.

I'm a member of EVERY board, bucko. I'm not fighting for the staff of gunsnet, this board or any other.

I say my peace and I walk what I talk. I won't troll here on behalf of a board you happen to dislike, and I'd expect the same of everyone else when I'm on gunsnet, FAL files, parallax or THR.

It's obvious that bad blood and small brains will prevail in this one, so I throw my hands up and acknowledge that only the kind of mind-changing that blunt-force trauma produces is going to affect anyone's opinions or attitudes. I'm not so unfortunate, I seem to get along fine wherever I go.

hey swing,

throwing in the towel aready? what a puss you are. giving up just like your boyhunter. i expected more from you.
all you do is get angry and tell people to fuck off. we have facts on our side. hundreds of people fell victim to their censorship .
tens of thousands of dollar's worth of weapons
are still not in the hands of their right full owners. fact, the other site flat out hid what was going on. alowing more of your gun owning brothers to fall prey to a theif. now i don't know about you , but where i come from thats "fucked up!"
research the facts then come back over here with your support for the other site. bring us facts why we are wrong. i'm sure there are hundreds of people on this site who can provide first hand accounts of misstreatment by
your buddy boycunter.

i got banned by du in one post and i wasn't even trying to!!! someone asked opinions about gay marriages (pro/con) and i said i supported gay rights and thought they made a faaaaa-bulous(j/k) contribution to society but i opposed gay marriages on religious grounds. next thing i know, i'm banned and du won't tell me why or reinstate me! hahahahahaha
Link Posted: 10/8/2003 2:03:52 PM EDT
Ok, I don't know what went on or what is going on between the warring gun boards because I am new here, nor do I have a desire to be a part of it so that was not the intention of my post.

However, I can say that I love watching irrational people who blindly follow (like those at DU) react when confronted with facts that blow their theories out of the water or are forced to think for themselves instead or spouting mindless and baseless facts. That was my purpose for visiting DU.

As far as the other board that was mentioned, never been there, have no intention of going. I am an AK owner, soon to be picking up another one after I pay for the Bushmaster a2 I ordered and thought I would jump in on a conversation that I found interesting. Forgive me if I have stepped into the middle of a war I did not know was going on.

The 2nd page has virtually nothing new, and has nothing to do with AKs. I am sure the issues will come up again, but this particular piece of beastial sadistic necrophelia is done for now.
