    I think Grapeshot needs to temporarily close the forum to get this cleaned up.

    I think it's a conspiracy to coverup my calls for rallies nationwide to institute Constitutional Carry from coast to coast.

    Using Tapatalk app, after the initial burst of reviving old threads with spam I don't really see any now in the 'unread' sorting.

    Edit: nevermind. 10 stories down the spam started.

    Spam is a conspiracy, it did not make itself. The people responsible always have an agenda. That agenda varies from trying to solicit money, hack internet accounts to obtain data or money, pranksters who get their jollies, or very angry people that take it out on the imagined boogy man. There is always a reason, technology is used but people are behind it.

    Many times the type of spam gives away the motive. So far it does not look like a attempt to collect information or money, but annoy. Even more telling is the pranksters have stuck mostly to two subforums, a bot would have it ALL the forums.

    I highly doubt that, if it was him he would have struck while his backside was still burning. Anger dissipates over time, and I doubt he is still angry. And I do not think he was that sort of person of very low moral character. Instead he was just so passionate about his believes that he allowed them to overtake his ability to remain here, of his own accord.

    Eye was not a chicken $hit, this person or persons are.
