Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Never will I speak ill of the forum members here

#1 Post by vonalt » Fri Mar 09, 2018 3:47 pm

Today I was perusing some of the sub forums on facebook that I like to follow sometimes. I saw a post the other day on another forum that I thought was pertinent to the subject at hand. So I decided to share it over there. I had hardly hit the return key until the hyenas were out telling me how wrong I was and how right they were. Then and there I decided I was done with them.

If I have an opinion or a fact to share from now on, it will be on here. We have a kinder more gentile sort of membership here. Bunch of snarling snapping wolves at each other's throats. Why people want to use social media is beyond me, I am done.

Stick with a better class of enthusiast here. Pat yourselves on the back guys.

some of the gun boards, one in particular that is known for "black rifles", is a real slimy cesspool. after reading a few threads. I came to the realization that

1) there is nothing useful to be gained from there either on the "black rifle" or other firearms.

2) the membership should be all on lithium or other anti-psychotic medication

I have always thought of this forum as top notch, with almost no trolls in sight. I appreciate it even more when I read these reviews of the other sites. Thanks, all.
I was R.L.E.V.M. on our old forum.

I'm a member of only two forums, this one being the first I joined. I, too, enjoy the fact that the members here are mature enough to realize that others are entitled to their opinions without being belittled or browbeaten. The other forum is almost the same with exception of a couple of members with high post numbers who seem enjoy thrashing some OPs for having any opinion at all. I also noticed how they are generally ignored. I agree with vonalt, show respect for others if you want it in return. Love this forum.
182+ posts before the old forum crashed. :violin:

That's the reason this is the only firearms forum I belong to or use. It's just a better more civilized group of collectors and enthusiasts than anywhere else on the net.

I do surf some of the "other Firearms" forums but only contribute to this one.
When you see people belittled for asking questions or for making errors in their
contributions to the forum, its a little off putting .Not everyone is at the same
level of knowledge and not everyone can spend every waking moment studying
our great hobby.

The people on this forum are very knowledgeable and patient and are very
willing to part with their knowledge and experiences.
Thats why we keep coming back

I am participating in several forums. I am the member of only two weapons forums. I must say that you can not find so many useful information exchanges anywhere. Actually, nowhere. The level of cultural discussion and exchange of views is extremely high here in the SRF. I have not experienced such a warm reception yet. I am very pleased to be a member of this forum and that's why I want to show my exhibits so much. I am really sorry that the old forum does not continue, as I have already presented most of my small weapons collection.
Thanks members!
Best regards from Slovenia! M67-Franko

I have joined, & left, most of the F/B shooting & collecting pages. Several who require you to sign up because they're "private" within a day.

I've learned a lot here--and that's made easier to do by the gracious and generous nature of the participants and the discussions. Thanks to everybody who's contributed to my learning! SRF is really a class act, and I'm grateful to see it (us) continuing to weather the recent storm. All best to all y'all.

Are you talking about me again, have you been corresponding with my wife, she says the same thing about me all the time?

I'll try to straighten up.

On the original topic, I have made real friends on this forum, not easy to do in today's atmosphere. On the social media line of thought, I am gladly blissful of the whole scenario, I gave my wife instructions on keeping me abreast of anything important I should know about, years later I haven't gotten my first update so I guess nothing important has occurred as of yet.

This one certainly is good. I like Nosler and CMP also, although you will run into a fair amount of curmudgeon-ness on the latter.

I never thought to put a word to what this board has that others lack, but class definitely fits. I'm a member on an AZ gun board and this one, that's plenty for me.

That AZ forum has its fair share of people with diarrhea of the mouth and constipation of the brain; I like this place better.

I'm on a bunch, mostly mil surp and C&R oriented. There's much to be gleaned from those in the know, with real world experiences, in particular, weapons and ammo failure. This place is friendly. PAX
