    All the discussions I go to seem to be out of order in the date they were posted. Is there a setting that I'm not seeing that can change the order. I see on the main forum page you can sort topic by clicking on the headers but not in the individual discussions.

    Welcome to our party, hope you are able to enjoy your 2A rights with us.



    As for your question, I just viewed several posts and did not find any out of order as you described. If you have an example it may help.
    What part of "shall not be infringed" don't you understand?

    This is the one I first noticed it on but most of them seem to be out of order for me.

    Two separate issues possible here.

    1) You must be "logged on" to see posting times correctly - don't know why that is, but is the case.

    2) The site is battling a DoS (Denial of Service) attack - that has screwed up the posting order on a few postings, but they generally straighten out.

    Also, news posts in a discussion bumps it to the top of the queue. Hence why you may see some people literally post "bump" to keep a thread near the top.

    The only "out of order" posts I've ever noticed were when daylight savings time ended. It was really uncanny seeing the "reply" posted before the "question."

    Well, I have to take back that first statement. Many of Grapeshot's posts are"out of order." :P
    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.

    Well it must be the DOS problem then. I have tried it on my work computer and my home computer with the same results. I will log onto my Chicago computer and see if I get it there. I'm in Newark Oh.

    Well I do have a reason. The other forum I go to has it on the side like that. So I have a little bit of an excuse. lol

    Nope, no excuses allowed, own up and say your mea culpas and we all move on There is so much more to debate, discuss, and argue about.

    Doesn't mean we don't all suffer from myopia from time to time ... there's been knee-jerk reactions, out right name calling, topics that wander off and on topic, a cold beer or three fingers of something smokey, general outrage, and nose-to-tail Amen's and Way-to-go's ...

    Every one has an opinion and we all give some lattitude, but citations and supporting documentation areinsistedupon (OK, demanded ) ... information and data mining is a side benefit of membership, but the best benefit is the camraderie of folks that generally agree with you on a majority of issues, but tastes will vary wildly.


    edited to add more funnies
    cheers - okboomer
