    Me when I first came to the board. They had to deal with me. :D

    Hoger? Was that the guy's name, there have been at least 5 or 6 that I'm sure just naming will raise the blood pressure of some mods but he's the only one I can think of off the top of my head.

    I don't think many if anyone gets banned on their first post and if they do it's probably forgotten about quickly because no one ever had the chance to know them. Search for the moon landing hoax thread, that guy is just crazy.

    About the only folks that get a rock dropped on them on the first post are spammers.

    We have had a few loonies- as long as they wipe their feet, don't make messes in the house, and do not annoy the other inmates too much, we sorta leave them alone- but sooner or later, someone is going to find a stick and start poking them.

    Lack of manners, deliberately starting a flame war, name calling- usually gets you an edit, a private message, sometimes an invite to go sit down and be quiet a while. Once in a while we get someone with the maturity of a 12 yr old that may choose to self destruct in a spectacular fashion. Folks that want to give instructions in highly illegal acts- frankly, we just cannot afford to let that happen. Bu-bye.

    There WAS the guy not too long ago that was seeking assistance in committing suicide, and the "faked his own death" one. But most are two folks getting into a pissing match (never smart around electrical equipment)

    Stupid questions? Not a problem. People that give a stupid answer and INSIST it is right- can be problem.

    In another forum I moderate, we had a highly intelligent and generally useful member that would occassionally go off his meds (seriously) and attack people. That and one member called the admin (female) a not so nice word that begins with a C. My biggest nemisis is with the India/Paki/China spammers. They've actually gotten pretty good at it.

    One would think that a firearm forum would have a large batch of crazies but it's been pretty civil. Not too many extreme cases.

    Once we got a contact from an LEO regarding, IIRC, a 5 poster who shot their Mother with the same gun they were posting about just prior.

    I remember one member that for the several months that was here (do not remeber his name), always argued with everyone. Everything was a pissing contest and he never backed up his arguments. He eventually got into one too many arguments and got a serious beat down with a ban stick.

    There was our super secret mall ninja (Gecko45) that was asking about body armor and wether or not he should wear some on his back too.

    The Chinese spammer that was writing poetry (if you can call it that) with links to escorts (AKA expensive hookers) in every major US city.

    The 13 year old that got banned and decided to pick a fight with c3. Guess who won that one.:rolleyes:

    Vito77 who first asked if there was a forum better than this one, and then called us all a bunch of jackasses for getting defensive about it. (technically, he wasn't banned, but left of his own free will and is no longer here.)

    Walley who decided that he didn't like us and left. For some reason, he felt the need to announce his departure.

    That guy who shot those hogs on a (basically caged) hunt, and posted the pictures and videos (of a very unclean and prolonged kill) of it. Then bragged about it. (I don't remember if he got banned, but I'm pretty sure he did. He's not here anymore anyways.)

    We also cannot forget all the threads that were closed because either it was going in a bad direction, or because somebody decided to resurrect a 3 year old thread. Dang zombies.

    Those are just the rare, major cases that I know of. Otherwise, it is pretty civil.

    Thank you to all the mods and notdku for everything you do to keep this site great.

    I'm not sure if I remember the one your talking about, or if I was here at the time, but I remember a guy who fits the description. He would somehow manage to go off even when someone agreed with him. Lame. If it's the same guy, I'll go on the record, I hated that douche.

    I still bring one of those up. Glad he didn't last long here at all.

    You know, in general, gun folks tend to be polite. Just like at gun shows, not many rude people. :) I know we all can get our panties in a wad every once in a while, but, gun folks are,overall, generally good folks.

    I tend to confuse folks because I am a gun person who's politics are somwhat to the left of Joe Stalin, but I still manage to get along. (mostly)

    It sounds like the same guy, but I'm not sure. I think the one I was thinking about was banned before we joined (maybe :confused:). I believe his last few posts had something to do with which shotgun was best. Either the semi/pump action Benelli M3, or a Mossberg 500, or a Remington 870.

    "An armed society is a polite society"-heinlein

    I have found this to be true...Folks that can kill another usually have nothing to prove...its those that feel they have something to prove are the problems.

    kinda like little dogs are the ones more likely to bite you and the big dogs generally are the friendliest of beasts.

    Thank God stupid questions are not a problem. :eek:

    As for stupid answers, I have learned who to trust and who not to trust when receiving answers to my questions.

    I know of one that surprices me is still here. I guess he is staying just below the line that crosses from acceptable to unacceptable. I'll give it a couple of months. :D
