IMO, trust, integrity and crediblity are all hallmarks of a person's character or the foundation a business is modeled after. for some they are simply words to attract business or to impress people, and not used in sincerity by any means.
for the most part, i think these words are lost on the younger generation and many really have no idea as to their true meanings.
there are members here i have come to trust their words simply because they have proven to me that what they say is the truth, and when they are wrong, they admit that they were mistaken. so their posts to me are credible adn i believe them to be people who have integrity and even though i may never meet them face to face, i know that if they represent themselves as such on a forum, that i believe they carry themselves the same way in person.
there are those who tell such outlandish and farfetched stories, that reek of lies, whether they are true or not. there have been several in the past that told such tall tales to the point they were called on such things to the point they are no longer here. IMO, i think they thought they were faceless usernames on a forum would allow them to get away with such theatrics.
i am the type of person if i know what a person is saying is a lie or incorrect, i will call them on it. i think this forum and the members who use this forum deserve the truth and the most factual information they can get. many of us get a lot of information here, many of us base buying decisions on the information we gather here and many want simply facts that they can rely on. as part of the firearms community, those who don't represent us in a truthful and credible manner, are liabilities to all of us.
