I have been on this forum for a short time, and JMHO...what the hell are we doing!
Over and over again I see post that attack other posters for what ever reason...I am a firm believer in the 1st amendment, but are we not all here for the same thing?
You want to attack the “leaches”, “posers”, “lurkers” or above all the “trolls”, you have the right to do so, but if I am correct, we are here to promote gun rights.
I am not so naive to think that there will not be disagreements, but personal attacks should be left on the playground, not on this website. Ignore the “trolls”...nothing you say will ever change their minds.
You may disagree with some of the things that opencarry.org is about, you may disagree with other organizations within your state or surrounding areas,and certainly you disagree with those that post here, but they are doing their best. That said, disagreements should be handled in a civil manner.
Don't think for one second that this site is not monitored by the “anti's”, or the media...anything you say can an will be used against “US”...in public opinion.
I am all for a spirited debate, and I do not have any intentions to become the “moral” administrator for this forum. I just wanted to bring this to everyone's attention, that we are all in this together.
I guess the question is, do we want to be betrayed to the general public as a bunch of Wyatt Earp's just looking for a fight and can't even agree with our own, or as normal citizens trying to protect what is rightfully ours?
I guess it is your choice. How do you want to handle it?

Great sentiment Z. Do you include those on our state thread who refered to other members as "The Enemy of OC" and "Traitors"? It's fine to come out and ask for everyone to be civil but where was this sentiment when members were being attacked for misguided ideas?
When two people don't agree with each other.. One of them calls the other a troll. That's simply how it works on this forum.
Don't share my opinion? You must be a troll... Post more than one time per reply? Must be a troll. Won't compromise? Must be a troll..
Only a Troll would blame it on the elderly!
I guess we have to police our own, but I found it better to just ignore. Fighting among ourselves gets us no where.

There will be no particular civility while the slightest anonymity is allowed. If for no other fact than anonymity is itself a disparagement of civility.
I recommend this OFF TOPIC thread be locked/deleted and the OP cautioned.
