You could try going to "edit email and passwords" and put in a fake email address. Might work.

I think you have to verify the email change by responding to an email sent to the new email address. What's your email address? You know, just to try it...

OK, as someone who comes here about once a month to read and less often to post, what are the "hate" and "racialist" comments? Exactly what I have been missing?

A couple sites have, or threatened to, ban me even though I did not (which they admit) violate a single rule or code. Mostly for posting the truth (I bought a brand new Kimber 1911 from the factory and it was trash/did NOT work out of the box - period - and had to be rebuilt. I bought a new Taurus 1911 and so far it has been perfect. BAM! Out the door! "Why?" "Telling the truth about Kimber and Taurus! NOT allowed here") and being stupid enough to say "if you have NOT tried it, NEVER shot it, HAVEN'T seen it, do NOT post 'in my opinion...' because you don't have one!" I would hate to see that happen here because both those things needed saying and tip-toeing around idiots who have all the time in the world to harass their betters gets old, especially if they are a mod. And yes I can point to several sites where the trolls ARE the mods. If you need someone, no problem, but if they are the problem, have some way to get rid of them too.

My 2 cents.

My 2 cents.

Disliking a Kimber doesnt fall under racist or hateful speech. Now if you went on the 1911 subforum only to tell everybody that glocks are better then you will probably get special attention from the mod(s)

Calling other poster idiots and stupid on the other hand will definitely cause you to catch the attention of the mod(s)

Calling out or starting fights with the mod(s) will absolutely guarantee you a vacation from the site.

Arguing or picking fights on the firearm forums is also prohibited. There is more leeway on the General and Poli subforums due to the nature of the subforums

I just returned a message to another forum member based on a quote he made. There was nothing wrong with the quote/reply OTHER than it was TOO SHORT.

How many characters does a reply have to be to NOT get this message. Needless to say after I submitted the reply and got the "too short" message I could NOT go back to it and just add a sentence to try to make it long enough. The original reply was gone. This is not the first time this has happened and I knew I had to add some BS to make it long enough. But, guess what, it still was NOT long enough. What are the rules on a reply? How many characters does it have to be?

Are the guidelines for replies posted somewhere? This is the only sight I have this issue with.
Thanks

Child of the 1950's....Momma had strict instructions..
1. " If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all"
2. " Play Nice"
3. " Treat others the way you would like to be treated"

Thanks Mom !
I don't understand why some feel the need to be mean and ugly, maybe they didn't have a mom like mine that whipped your behind when you didn't act right . I thought she was real mean....but in truth I now know she loved me.

Use of the Marketplace

I have been posting general posts but I cannot post in the Marketplace. What restriction do I have in the Marketplace?

In all seriousness . Try a different browser. If that doesn’t work try using the browsers incognito mode. If that still doesn’t work I will pass it on to the sites admin support
