    Default Deleted Threads

    We have deleted what appears to have been a popular thread in our shooting forum. The thread was reported by a member of the site, and upon reviewing it, it is clear that the thread was mostly political in nature. Though politics and shooting sports are intertwined to a degree, we believe this thread went too far into both politics and personal attacks. Our apologies for not noticing the thread sooner and taking action.

    While the purpose of the forum is clear, perhaps we need a gun related area where there can be civil discussion of what appears to be an important topic. Most of us being mature adults, we can probably have meaningful discourse without stepping over the line. Without this arena, there will undoubtedly be more discussion of this nature and if it offends others on the forum, they can simply avoid reading it. Seems like a simple solution to discuss areas which may affect all outdoors men (persons)....something to consider.
    Somewhere along the way I have lost the ability to act politically correct. If you should find it, please feel free to keep it.

    That was tried some years ago, but there are always the few who cannot resist the personal attack.

    Unfortunately, that has been proven over and over to not be true.

    There is a "2nd amendment and gun control" permanent thread at the top of the page. This is the "alaska shooting" page. I really don't see the problem here, except some folks not remaining civil..... and not following the posted rules. Seems like some folks don't read what they have written BEFORE clicking the "post quick reply" tab.

    You must prefer "UNpopular" threads.

    Or perhaps, an unpopular forum.

    ....I clearly jumped to an unfounded conclusion....back to my bucket list and more important things.
