Paul, I guess I am the main culprit in turning the thread in the wrong direction. I just did not feel like I should sit by and let a poster "muck rake" shooters from Benchrest.com, and no one call him on it. I did not give you time to do just that.
This site and Benchrest.com are kindred, not just in the Format, but in the fact that we pride ourselves in keeping the discource civil. Regardless of what was written here, the was really no "war" going on over there. It was simply one individule brow beating every one else over issues that were in disagreement.
I was wrong to come to your site and make the statement that I did.. It proves that when you get down in the gutter with someone else, you just pick up the stink........jackie

This seems to be a great site and group of people.

I just left the Benchrest Central site due to a small group of individuals who believe it is OK to make racial remarks. Hard to believe this is happening in this country in 2008. Either the moderators there are not policing those threads, or they condone it.
Glad to see this site operated by people with integrity.

I am a member of Benchrest Central for quite a while now ... I have not seen the racial comments you are referring to... they are not something Benchrest Central will put up with... the moderator is one person and is very busy... he does not read every posting but if he were emailed a complaint he would deal with it. People have been banned for forum infractions.

Come on back...

My disenchantment is not with you Mr. Sorensen. I enjoyed your threads and help as I did those of many others.

Lots of newbies come here fro good and correct information

If someones info is outright BS- how do we call them on it??

Id much prefer to call someone on their BS than let it go unchallanged and maybe someone get hurt form their information

I agree totally man. If someone is wrong and don't know any better, they need help. For those that are just trying to sound like they know, but really don't they need help in more ways than one. For those that just want to argue and find fault they need to be putting their energy someplace else.I don't mind a bit if I am wrong and someone shows me the light because I am here to learn and that should be everybodys attitude.

Here's the point guys,

Disagreements are par for the course - no harm, no foul. Explaining why you feel a particular statement or theory is incorrect is part of why discussion forums exist. The issue is inappropriate language or behavior.

Personal attacks=bad.
Profanity=bad.

Pretty simple, actually. We all know that 99% of the board members here understand and practice civil behavior. It's a tiny minority of participants here (who seem to think the rules don't apply to them) that make snide remarks, vent hostility, cause hard feelings and give this fantastic website a completely unnecessary black eye. People who then give those inconsiderate posters a pat on the back are contributing to the nastiness. I'm embarrassed that our over-worked Moderator has to address social skills with grown adults.

Tom
