    A new forum section only for members to post?

    I would like to see a section of the forum only available to be seen or posted to by members.

    Anyone else see value in this?

    As it is, only members can post. As to registration required to see and read, is not that concealment very like a concealed weapon - well, for those of us who post edged opinions?

    Elitism has many forms.
    Gun control isn't about the gun at all.... for those who want gun control it is all about their own fragile egos, their own lack of self esteem, their own inner fears, and most importantly... their own desire to dominate others. And an openly carried gun is a slap in the face to all of those things.

    IMHO...do not see any ROI for such a section !!

    public accessibility kinda keeps member's rhetoric bravado in check...

    finally, are we not trying to hold those that serve their citizens, e.g., nice LEs, government officials, ad nauseam, public per se., to preclude back door antics?

    I don't know what the point would be in having a section that requires registration and login to view. The bar for registration is low, so what would really be accomplished? Did you have any particular reason in mind? Probably more importantly from an administrative standpoint, in what way would this new section further the purpose and goal of OCDO?

    I think there s/b a section for licensed CHLs to post - those that are upright, solid citizens, who can afford the license fee, a detailed background check, and fingerprints on file - those that meet the high bar of responsible gun ownership and have been approved by politicians and judges of a State to be 'bona fide'.

    I haven't encountered issues w non-registered posters gumming things up on OCDO.

    Sounds like the same requirements to hold a Government issued Clearance.

    So.... you want a private section to keep out the riff-raff like PETA, the NSA, FBI, MAG, MMM, and whatnot?

    The same riff-raff than can see everything just by joining the site?
    Exactly how hard and exclusive to you think joining OpenCarry.com is?
    You know there's about 15,000 members here that have never posted even a single word, any one of which could be just a reader bot for one of the people/organizations you want to keep out?

    Will Dean Wormer have any control over these double secret members only posts?

    no.



    Police One used to allow the public to see the comments section. Too many people saw their true colors and now comments can only be seen by "sworn members". Are you afraid someone will see what you actually write on this forum? Are you ashamed to not be seen "in the light"? Don't like freedom of speech? This idea, on this forum, is beyond dumm. But that's just me.

    I see no value in a "members only" ability to read posts. Especially so long as anyone can register so readily. Short of gross violations of the rules it isn't like anyone gets refused registration or gets their registration revoked.

    Now, if anyone had interest in requiring a real name and an actual City/State of residence in order to register and post there might be some value in that. Perceived anonymity too often brings out the worst in some posters, though, admittedly, it can also be the difference between some feeling like they can post at all vs being concerned about employment or other implications if their names were too readily attached to their postings. But for most of us, there is no real need for anonymity. That would shine real sunlight on a lot of posts. Probably more sunlight than most care for.

    The only value I see in this would be to require a member's real name (coughmcbethcough) and actual location. If it's to be members only, there's no need to use a fake ID.

    I think she's a Texas girl. Haven't seen her much since Knott's Landing...

    From Morgan Fairchild.com:


    -Has participated in bus tours for voter registration and clean water initiative in Ca. and in Pennsylvania for the Gore 2000 Campaign
    -Former Board Member of the Hollywood Women's Political Committee (HWPC)

    Wonder if she is Pro-2A?

    OK.....what about "private messages" between members.



    40% of all "private messages" do not have background checks

    Sure...on your own website...let us know when it is up and running.
