    Thanks for the heads up. I personally am extremely wary of all sites that deal with firearms.

    SMDH- (for those that do not do internet slang- shaking my damn head)

    Firearms Talk Forum is owned by the Carbon Media Group. Out of Michigan. In turn, they are owned by VerticleScope. Which has 4 locations- Detroit, San Francisco, and 2 overseas (NOT Canada) In 2015, the majority interest was obtained by Torstar of Canada. Torstar owns a variety of media sources, including newspapers, web traffic groups (like us)- hell, they owned Harlequin Romances.

    As far as Torstar directing what we do here on a day to day basis- if they did that, it would have started in 2015 when TorStar acquired VerticleScope who acquired Carbon Media. We are one of several thousand fora, websites. chat groups etc in a very big tent.

    If you will excuse me, I hafta go call my stock broker- want to see if I can put some money in a tin foil manufacturer. Then I am gonna go see if there is some Elijah Craig left......

    Sorry- better make that Crown Royal- otherwise our Canadian masters may take umbrage at me, and withhold my ration of poutain.

    What wait... you mean the takeover took place over 5 years ago?
    So the tin foil hats I have been crafting for me and the cats are not needed?
    Wow so for 5 full years I could have been crafting full tin foil suits for my family?
    To protect from the evil Canadian microwaves, that might infect me?
    Yea thanks for the heads up guys.

    Again Locutus, you can type\talk politics until you turn blue, your fingers fall off, or you are reassimilated. That's what it's there for. All they are asking is that you do so politely, without the name calling.

    Pardon my French, but why the f*** is that such a hardship?

    Next you're going to say I was the one blowing everyone in! That's how damn outlandish this thread is already getting.

    Simply put, if you don't like the rules, as this is privately owned, so restrictions do not fall under 1A, find another forum, that's more to your liking. That's why I'm here, and not on another forum.

    Being required to talk politely about something as nauseating as "he who is too precious to be name" is the same as not being allowed to talk about him at all.

    Sorry, fox, I do not speak politely about those that I loathe and hold in utter contempt.

    Perhaps you and C3 have the formal education and sufficient command of the language to express hatred and comtempt politely. I do not. I'm just an uneducated old redneck that loves his country and his heritage passionately and calls a spade a spade. Or maybe even a fookin' shovel.

    So your answer to anyone who disagrees with you is just leave???

    No, I will not. I have a few very good friends here.

    From the rancor and name calling that I've experienced in the last few weeks, apparently quite a few enemies.

    But if my enemies want me silenced, they will just have to ban me. I will not give them the satisfaction of cutting and running.

    You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.
