Stopped by to say hello...

#1 Post by Hobie » Wed Jan 15, 2020 11:32 am

As the old timers know I have not been by here often. Life changes and other responsibilities have prevented much activity on my part in the forum. I hope all are well.

Unfortunately, I've had several complaints about the behavior of a couple of people on the forum. This is really disappointing. While we seem to care less about the opinions others have of us as we age it is my opinion that we are no less responsible for our behavior towards others. Obscenities, base accusations, name-calling and off-forum threats are not acceptable behavior. Besides being offensive to the parties involved, it makes the forum an unpleasant place for other participants and a place they would not want their family members to visit. Such behavior also reflects poorly on the firearms hobbyist community.

We are having a political fight of our lives here in VA. The fight is spreading. I would hope that every forum member would bear in mind that their behavior reflects on us all as they post. If this isn't possible the administrators will take action to remove all such from the forum.

Hobie, glad you stopped by, and thank you for reminding us all that we are supposed to act as gentlemen and friends here. Hope you are not forced to take additional steps.

Nice to hear from you again. Good luck in the fight for your Constitutional Rights there in Virginia.

Welcome back to the fire Hobie, I've missed your input, hope the politics in your neck of the woods work out in your favour . :wink:

Even the best of friends can rankle each other.

The trick is honestly knowing the difference between making a point and making things personal. Some call it tact. Some call it wisdom. And some do not know what I am talking about.

Hobie! It has been a long time! Good to see you here again.

As a fellow Virginian I am appalled and concerned about the attitude in VA now. Just like Colorado, where the libs from CA moved into Denver and took over the state, the same is happening in northern VA, even in my Loudoun county. What I don't get is the Newport News area with all the military there. Republicans control 95% of the geography, but Dems out vote us in the cities. A crisis is upon us ... I just hope the courts can save us from the liberal derangement!

Take care my friend, and keep up the fight!
