I was going to deal with this privately with jsimmons but since people seem intent on bashing me i will make it public.
This is my response that i sent to jsimmons via private message:
First of all if you would like to provide constructive criticism i do appreciate it. However if you had any respect for anyone besides yourself you would do it in a private manner ie: private message.
Second how do you know there are no valid excuses in my life. I am currently taking 16 credits in college, working full time and trying to have a family life as well. So when I do have time to participate in the Forum it usually isn't very much.
Third I have never been a good writer, speller, etc. and i am always the first to admit it. Currently 6 of my 16 credits have to do with English. I'm enrolled in English 101 and Speech 103.
Fourthjust because someone is not an expert at one aspect of a job does not mean they should look for another job. I was an Aviation Structural Mechanic in the U.S. Navy for 4 years. Which also includes Hydraulics. I suck at working on Hydraulic Systems and excelled at the structural side. With extra work and training over time i got better not good but better with hydraulics.
So you talk about education and civilized people and you reply to my post like that. If you want to help someone then do it without trying to publicly embarrass them. Until then i respectfully ask you to keep your opinions to yourself on my Threads, Posts, Replies, etc. As far as your corrections for my format thank you and it is a learning experience. No one is perfect. Not even you Sir.
Now I would like to remind all that wish to gang up on me of a couple forum rules I call on the moderators to enforce them so that we may keep our focus and get information to all that need it instead of bashing people into silence.
All rules are copied and pasted from http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/forum1/1.html
2) Since we are a site dedicated to open carry,firearms and gun rights, all posts should relate substantially to one of these topics, even if your comments pertain mainly to freedom andliberty. OCDO is not a general discussion forum on polticis, religion, the current President, etc. Take that somewhere else!
5) While you may disagree strongly with another poster based upon their opinion, we will NOT tolerate any personal attacks or general bashing of groups of people based upon race, religion, sex, or choice of occupation (e.g., being a law enforcement officer).
8) General: No shouting in Capital Letters. Use "substantially proper" capitalization, punctuation, and grammer as best you can. Use of abbreviations and acronymns shold be minimized and always defined.
And i also include Rule 8. Yes i am very bad at English and am a native speaker. just because i'm learning and still make a lot of mistakes does not warrant public bashing. If you don't like my posts, threads whatever Then don't read them. Don't reply to them. Move on.
