it seems racist comments are ok at this board?

well, i tried a pm, but no response, so i'll ask here...

racist comments are now acceptable at this board? i mean, i know trolling, implied threats, name calling, and other lovely behaviors are generally ignored, but i guess its truly "no rules" at this forum now?

i figure when terms like "*******s" are posted freely, won't be long until we see the beloved "N" word and other "wonderful" descriptions of people appear.

well, i just wanted to make someone aware. whoever it is that supposedly moderates this forum?

there are NO moderators here.

i pm'd the board owner and started this thread (how long ago?). the racist comments still stand. apparently, it's ok to make racist comments on this board. i can think of no other explanation myself.

Why not use another forum if it's so troublesome? There are more than enough of them to satisfy most.

simple. i think racist comments have no place on a firearm board. i think i have a right make posts about firearms without seeing them. it does nothing to promote or help on the board. it represents all of us badly imo, especially when nothing is done about it.

but you are certainly correct about other forums. most are better than this one, i guess i'm just hanging on to what it used to be.

There are no racists posting in the news & politics forum.

Just ask them, they'll tell you.

i pm' d you some time ago, and this thread is approaching how old?

i don't mean to be rude, kevin. i just have zero tolerance for this myself, and i hope you share that sentiment. i would really appreciate a STRONG, PUBLIC WARNING on this

*******s is the term. it is racist and degrading as i have many mexican american friends.

right here.

Good on ya boys-I'll send you some ammo!

i just don't care to see these types of terms ignored. if it is ignored, it will get worse imo.

and so we are straight...i AM NOT calling anyone a racist. there is a vast difference between being racist and using racist terms imo. but using racist terms can make a person LOOK racist for sure.

You may, in your words, visit often, but you don't answer your pm's or email's... On this board, or on your other one...!

I stay away from the Poli Board. Racial hatred is just the icing on the cake bud. I would
definitely recommend the BBQ section though... food brings us all together

Questions are supposed to be posted in the site information section.

If I answered all of the questions people sent me, I would have little time for anything else.

If answering emails is such a big problem, sell the site to someone else...

In the mean time, at least try to live up to your responsibilities...!

This is not even a good try at a troll thread.

To answer the OP, no, racist comments are not allowed. this should be common sense.

hawkguy sent me a private message complaining about the political section, but did not include a link for an example.

With no example, what am I supposed to do? Am I supposed to guess at what he was referring to?
