Default So is anyone else banned from posting on politics?

Just noticed that I am unable to post on certain threads. All of them are what you would call "political."

I don't want to jump to conclusions here but it appears that I have been muzzled. Not gonna lie. Not too happy about it. Feels pretty crappy.

Anyone else been put on a leash?

Relax, it's nothing you've done. There are only two types of people allowed into the politics section. Members who were grandfathered in (don't remember the cut off date. Some time in 2011 IIRC), and supporting members. A while back we were having problems with drive by trolls attacking the politics section. So the admin blocked all new members (who were not supporting members) from posting there.

It's an easy fix. Just become a supporting member.

Advice from a supporting member AND grandfathered member.

Are you a liberal? If so that'd be my guess as to why you can't post there. I wouldn't allow your kind to post either, if I ran the show. Discussion is only beneficial when its one sided.

Just kidding.

Obama monitors this forum. If you will support his failing Presidency he will give you a low paying job in Washington.

yep, you were muzzled! must have set off the troll or liberal sensors!

JK!!!!!! TWW is correct. certain sections of the forum are restricted to only allowing SM's to post in. IOW's, you can read but are not allowed to reply. this was done simply because of the number of trolls that were coming onto the forum and stirring up trouble. C3shooter was getting overworked, even as much as he enjoys whacking trolls! they figured a troll wouldn't buy a membership just to post some trollish garbage on a forum. and it worked!

become a SM and join the Dark Side! it will change your life forever!

As the esteemed woodworker explained Pretty much for Supporting Members. This helps keep the trolls and varous other goblins at bay so we can carry on intelligent (most of the time) and adult (rarely) conversations in the political arena.

Contact Notdku for details on becoming a suporting member. I believe only $15 a year.

I am a SM, and you are not missing much by staying out of politics, on a gun forum.

If I spoke my mind on 9/11, JFK, moon landings, ET, gold in fort Knox, Obama, Bush and on and on, I would get banned, and be out a good gun forum.

A good gun forum, is just that, a good gun forum.
