personally i think at the begginning there was nothing wrong with leaving the guy's post, beacause as many of you sadi this is why we are here, to share info, comments, questions and what not...but as soon as he starts getting "excited" and starts talking the talk he doesnt walk then i would have deleted it and banned him..as soon as he called him "pig" (which im pretty sure wasnt for patience integrity and guts) it deserved to be deleted.....on a reply to his own post he says he doesnt like police because of blablabla i think thats completely valid and harmful...because there was NO DISRESPECT..i dont live in the states i have been there many times though but i dont have the right to make an opinion of USA cops......COMMENT CONTINUED ON ANOTHER REPLY
**CONTINUATION***rights are earned not granted....you earn the right to carry a gun when you have demonstrated you are fit to carry one in a responsable and mature manner...he didnt earn that right....the second ammendment does state your right to bear arms but it is also stated that you dont commit crimes and that you should be at all times a stand up citizen( AT ALL TIMES)...if you are not one at some moment then you should learn from your mistakes and correct yourself so you can be one...then again if there werent people like sick then there would really be no need to have guns because there would really be no threats, and hence ther would be no gun market or other so then this forum wouldnt exist and you guys wouldnt have met me...so in retrospect THANKS SICK (uuumm or not)
Maybe my old age is showing here but I still give him the benefit of the doubt. Obviously he's upset that he can't get a CHL. He came across wrong and we all jumped on his ass. Maybe he just needs to vent. Then he can be told what his legal options are. Looking back, it seems like instead of helping the guy, we kicked him to the curb.
I don't know...
The members of this site DID give him the benefit of the doubt. It wasn't his criminal record which was the problem with his posts. It was the fact that he was advocating carrying a gun illegally. Us law abiding citizens get enough crap from anti gun liberals and when they see a post that talks about illegal gun ownership then that just feeds fuel to their fires. Also too that even though this is a public site it is also privatly owned and it is not a thing like survivor where we vote people off the island if we don't like them or keep them because we do. You just don't insult the admins/mods of any site. It's just not the smartest thing to do. Also shows a lack of respect.
I think giving sick45 the boot was a good idea. It seems that he was also bragging about breaking into cars and stealing CDs and also bragging about drug use. I know that I brought up the issue about me having a juvenile record but I didn't talk about it in specifics because even though it is in the past and I have paid my debt to society, I am still very ashamed of what I did and probly will always be. I brought it upon myself and I can't blame anyone other than myself.
OK, for one - I am glad that the members here agree with our decision. It makes things here more civil. And, we have the best members here of any site.
I've managed many sites before in the past, however, and inevitably, you get someone like that every couple of months. He's not the 1st, and probably won't be the last. So, while we hate stepping in, sometimes we have to.
I think all that needs to be said about the guy has been, though. I don't see much point going on about him anymore. We did leave his posts up to speak for themselves. Had they threatened anyone or gone even a little further, we may have deleted them. But, in this case, we did not.
Anyway, I've decided to lock this thread so we can all move along with our HAPPY lives and enjoy ourselves here. :-D
