    Perhaps as many have lied. The 'Posts' count is of all postings by the user.

    And my point is that we are not as many as 51. The time rate of posts are not as conveniently accessible and would be as revealing of our activism.

    Five or ten (10% - 20%) are 'active' users of OCDO.

    All this is an invitation to research and establish your own correlation of OCDO statistics with Wisconsin's economic rates and consider that correlation in light of the magnitude of Brad Krause's needs.

    First Brad must weather this trial that we might individually be able to help a bit with the finances. Then we can consider the grand mosaic and that the end, however laudable, does not justify the means.

    I think Doug was trying to say there are enough Wisconsin OpenCarry members to make this happen, but since the numbers aren't overwhelming he'll have to cough up more that fast-food money.
    I am quite able to say what I mean and acknowledge your disruption.

    There is no 'fast food' here where I live. Life is slow with time to think.

    Don't despair. When I joined the forum in 2007 there were only 13 Wisconsin members. "At the right place and the right time it only takes one person to change the world". Lammie

    And we have some people who don't even register but read and show up to events to show support. I remember an individual at the Shooters Shop who told us that he reads OCDO but doesn't post or even have a handle. He had a LOT of antennas on the back of his car. Anyone remember him?

    There wasn't yet 20 WI memberswhen I started coming to the forums in March of 2008. Having 51 members, less than a year later is a great improvement. Things do move slowly in Wisconsin, but as Lammie said in another thread we can finallysee the light at the end of the tunnel. Brad's case is 19 days away and counting. Perhapson that day we will bask in the sunlight.

    I agree. I make it a pointto mentionthis forum and opencarry.org in generalto others when the situation arises anda surprising number of people that I have talked to have been here. I personally rarely post but read often.

    Look at the view count onthe differenttopics rather than the post count. Like most forums (on any given topic), thereare probably too manyknow-it-alls already posting here tomake it worthregisteringandadding something newto the conversation for many.

    If the Subject: and/or Description: fields were accurate, and not treated as 'teasers', that might be true.

    It is quite like first impressions of a person or a book, there is so much to read and so many people to attend that the attractiveness is determinant.

    Agreed.. Many times someone has already made my point negating the need forfurther comment. (however I would not use know it all in this age of P.C. I would say well informed and opinionated)

    Thank you for the welcome home Shotgun.

    Or look to the POV represented by user=22755 in the thread 19480 discussion. How many of the Wisconsin registered users, lurkers and not-posters does he speak for? There is also user=7889 with a significant number of posts!

    Doug –

    I don’t know how to reference the users or conservation’s by the numbers you posted. A little help?

    Mouse over your username and read the URL window at the bottom of your browser.

    Users are less defensive when they are referred to by their unique OCDO 'user=' than their (non-unique) net epithet.

    Similarly, this is forum 57 and thread 21216 and users are not so protective of an 'anonymized' thread as they are of 'their' thread.

    Doug-

    I understand your discretion.. In all honesty he shares a few of my opinions but please do not put me in the same category as him. I would like to think I am much more polite and tolerant ect.

    I appreciate that, of you and some others, but OCDO and Wisconsin is rife with rice-bowl politics, that is the politics intimately mixed with personal income and financial well being.

    All I want is for good people to be armed where they will, with wits and guns and the truth.

    Doug-



    We have the start of a deeper understanding. It is when good people put aside the small differences for the greater good. That is when we will make progress as a whole.

    Ok gotta go Super Bowl time!!!! GOOD DAY GENTS!!!!!!!

    Parabellum. You are correct, sir. I have read many OCDO posts and I only reply if I have something to contribute which has been few.

    I do support law abiding, trained citizens to be able to defend themselves whether they want to OC or CC (future hope ).

    Antenna's?? What antenna's? Yea, there are many. I am an amateur radio operator, FCC General class licensed (callsign withheld). As a volunteer with Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ARES) and Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES), I hold a position with Wisconsin ARES/RACES as a liaison to many agencies (local, county, state and federal) and voluntary organizations. We support the agencies and organizations by providing interoperable communications in times of emergencies / disasters when their own system fails. This can also apply to cell phones.

    I do not know if you remember, but I am attending ITT for Criminal Justice. Since retiring from the Coast Guard as an Electrician and Maritime Law Enforcement Officer, I am returning to the LE field.

    And, as you know, amateur radio is a hobby as well.

    This is the most I have written on this forum.

    By the way, I will be at Brad's hearing.

    All types of antennas and of all different sizes. We didn't talk to much about it. Did we meet at ITT? When did you start? PM me. And post your intention to show at Brad's hearing on the West Allis Court case thread so we can get a fair head count.
