    I did some research last might

    FTF, Glock Talk, SIG forun, HK forum and 600 other gun forums are now owned by an agenda driven Canadian company, "VerticleScope."

    VerticleScope is 56 percent owned by "Torstar." The Toronto Star. A center left publishing company.
    Now we know why the forum has shifted to the "Woke" left.

    yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeah, I don't believe it's some vast left wing conspiracy, but the mods trying to keeping it under some type of control. this isn't "your house" you're just visiting. I guess if you don't like it, don't go in there, or spend the shekels and get a board ofyour own, where it's "anything goes".

    Same thing happened at another forum I used to frequent several years ago. Purchased by vertical scope. It didnt change the left or right lean of the sight. There was no " agenda".
    But they did screw that site up.

    Entirely likely passwords will need to be changed , the pay to play area will disappear (a good change) and even more ads will be popping up.

    I'd look for a new mod to pop up soon with a while we are transitioning speech.


    There was a mass exodus, myself included because of it. Simply because of the sellout to a Canadian company, and the discovery that the new owner was fishing data of the members.

    And a private website was born.

    I hope what happened there doesn't happen here.

    It already did,but that was several years ago. There were many great members on here once,but that changed pretty quick. That's why I no longer support this place with my money.

    I thought the site was owned up until a year ago by carbon communications.

    Oh well. I never understood giving money to a multimillion dollar commercially driven site that has no need of it.

    yeah, but that doesn't mean it's not moderated, some kind of restrain has to be put in so it doesn't go "full retard". BTW, the 1st admnt doesn't apply to the private sector. if you're going to "play that card"

    if you want a "no holds bar all out PRC" site then like I said, dig deep and pull out some drachmas and make your own BB :D

    got the perfect URL address for you

    WWW.ANYTHINGGOES.COM

    you're welcome

    edit: you won't be able to use that URL address, it's already taken. looks mighty interesting too. [​IMG]
