    Not sure if this is this is the right place, if not feel free to move it. I was banned from an internet forum for OC. Yep, you heard correctly. I was a member of a watch enthusiast forum, and posted photos of a new rolex that my wife suprised me with. They were candid shots as I opened it, and I was wearing my M&P .45. Oh lord did the SHTF. Every hoplophobe in the world was terrified that my pistol was going to leap out of computer screens worldwide and cause mass death, and destruction. Long story short after attempting to courteously but firmly defend myself, I was banned from the forum. Wow we have come to a pretty pass when even a picture of a firearm terrifies people into this sort of reaction. Would love to post quotes of some of these, but aside from being banned, the posts were also deleted. Anybody else have anything like this happen?

    BTW these were just innocent photos of myself, wife and daughter sitting on the living room floor opening a box, the gun itself showed up in the photos just like all of the other inanimate objects in the room.

    Welcome to OCDO!!!!

    Ignore my compatriots lack of welcome. They get in reading mode and sometimes overlook that a hearty welcome is an appropriate post. (hint, hint to forum members)

    Seems to me I've heard of an isolated case here and there.

    Now you know why the Founders distrusted democracy, setting up a republican form of government.

    I came across a quote recently from Ayn Rand. It goes something like,"The smallest minority is the individual. Those who won't protect the rights of an individual cannot claim to be interested in protecting minorities."

    Was the watch enthusiast forum mainly in the US? Europe?

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Thank you for your warm welcome. The forum was based mainly in the us, as judging by most of the members. It doesn't really matter, as after I found out about their bias, I didn't care to have much more to do with them. I was suprised though as I had been a member for over 3 yrs (that was my first real post).

    Heh, heh.

    You've just given the agitator in me an idea!

    "Forum OC." Who OC's on their internet forums?

    Maybe we can make a thread for reports. "I OC'd on such-and-such car forum. No complaints. Arguments about my choice of wheels mysteriously stopped. )

    I think that had I not been banned, every single one of my next posts would've contained a firearm in some way. Already had made a beautifulpic of my M&P with the rolex hanging off the barrel, just ready to go. Not menacing, just present.

    That really would have fired them up into a frenzy.

    This must be the "offensive photo" that jackie was so disgusted by.

    Look at the smile on that little girls face! I can tell exactly what she is thinking...

    Tori thought:
    Daddy, I am so grateful that you choose to arm yourself to protect me. I love you!
    BTW... Welcome to OCDO! :celebratePost often, and carry always!

    +1, oh wait, I do the same thing sometimes

    From the quoted post above it sounds like you tried to deescalate. It wasn't your problem in the first place, but bravo for trying to be the better man.

    Hmm shoulda thought about the brown and black, but in my defense I WAS wearing brown shoes ( I think). Thanks for all the great responses, and have now found another forum to post on for my hobby that is much more welcoming of my freedoms.

    BTW I have a brown firearm too, but a .41 ruger blackhawk is a PITA to carry all day.

    ps, it is amazing how cross linked the internet is these days, I found myselfwowed that someone found the picture of me on another forum, and posted my goofy looking butt here.

    I feel offended by the sight of that child in obvious danger in that photo. The terror in her eyes is overwhelming. Have you no heart?

    Nice watch too, just make sure we don't have to see it in the next open carry photo of yourself.

    Seriously though, anybody can tell that girl seriously loves her daddy, nice job!


    I can tell you've been Rady8ed, you have a nice glow about you.

    Yes, Google is amazing! Hope you don't mind, but I thought that picture was precious!

    It belongs at the top of the page with the other families!

    Here's the thread, I posted in it too:

    http://www.rolexforums.com/showthread.php?t=60234

    It doesn't look like Gman11377 is banned though. Maybe he got reinstated.

    TRF can be touchy about guns since there are so many Europeans on there.

    Definitely does not seem that they banned/deleted him. In fact only a very few negative comments - most don't even refer to his gun.

    Curious.

    Actually, it seems like the mod told that gettocard person (politely, of course) to deal with it or go to another thread.

    Edit: Based on a snippet of conversation in that thread I'm positive that is not the forum the OP was referring to in his original post.

    Sorry for the confusion, will clarify. Timezone was the forum that I was banned from, and TRF is the forum that I now post at. TRF has shown itself to be much more friendly, open, and welcoming. Yes the mods at TRF did actually ask/tell the harrasser to go elsewhere, and pm'ed me to ask about things. Have posted other pictures to TRF some featuring firearms and no problems. For those intrepid searchers, look for another picture post of mine on TRF featuring a new member here (Jbeck) and her christmas present.:whatBTW I am being smacked for typing this)

    Also amusing is how the "ghettocard" person caused such a stink on Timezone, and then followed and registered at TRF just to continue harrasing me. Hope this makes things clear.

    We'll be waiting over at www.GeorgiaCarry.org !!!

    For $15 a year, GCO is severely underfunded, but it has accomplished amazing things. For the life of me, I cannot understand why anybody who carries a gun would not be a member.
