Can you deny that others and/or myself have not been permitted to the right of free speech here?
Not at all. In fact, the more knowledgable people will tell you that you have no rights here. (Not just you, but any of us.)
It's not our property. We're guests on/in private property, and as such we have agreed (when we signed up) to abide by the rules the owners set forth.
This is not government-owned, government-run, government-sponsored, or in any way government-connected, so the concept of rights does not apply.

I don't understand how any forum can be pro police, without being against the 4th amendment
There are a lot of things you don't understand, despite people trying to be very patient and explaining them repeatedly.
This site is not "pro-police", it is anti-hate.
And there are other people here (including some of the very knowledgable ones who have tried & given up on trying to help you) who have also been abused by police.

This place would grow tiresome inside of a week, least by my standards
Feel free to go somewhere else with your... um... histrionics.
You're free to use the sites you've set up (your private property) to discuss whatever you choose.

OOC (OhioOpenCarry) is a newer place, and was created after getting the idea from OCDO to create a set of boards more related to or focused on open carry
I don't think that's possible. John & Mike are very welcoming, as long as people behave in a civilized manner, and the only reason this site exists is to promote OC.
Sure, in your own place you can rant all you want and be as whiny and crazy as you are and probably nobody will call you on it. But other people will (are?) have the same reaction and stay away in droves.

others seem able to post off topic here, but I can not
Oh well, I know I'm being targeted by you.
You do it regularly. And you have been warned repeatedly.
And I don't know anyone other than spammers who has so many threads locked or deleted in such a short time. You're being "targeted" because you persist in breaking the rules.
As eye said, keeping watch over the people who break the rules, so that they don't harm the rest of us, is just common sense.

Not to mention that she would be partially enslaving John and Mike by forcing them to host a site for reasons beyond their willingness.

By her standard, anybody wishing to host a forum must allow any and all speech on any topic. So, if you want to host a forum on needlepoint, you have to put up with threads on the United Nations, automotive repair, and clubbing baby seals for their fur. Give enough leeway, and a relevance, however tenuous, can be fabricated.

People here pay attention to potential threats and deal with them appropriately.

Keeping an eye on someone who has shown her willingness to ignore laws & rules is neither stalking nor harassing. It's protecting OCDO from whatever **** you bring down on yourself by being able to show that we've tried (repeatedly) to dissuade you.

Enforcing the rules is neither stalking nor harassing.
Pointing out when you lie (in various ways) is neither stalking nor harassing.

I'm the one being attacked here, Look at all the off topic posts in the social lounge. If I post a topic there that has nothing to do with my new car (I don't have one) or a movie I watched within a 24 hour period, (I haven't seen a movie in over a year) My topic will be removed. If I post the truth in a topic or reply, I must be bashing someone or some group, only I don't get to know what person, group or in what way I'm doing this aleged bashing. So I have to come up with topics and replys that fit exactly with the critera of this place, but others can post whatever. Oh, and people get to stalk and harass me here.
Yeah! Suuuuure you are. Poor, little, innocent Joanie who never did anything to receive criticism from others on this forum. No stretching or distorting. No exaggeration. No pretending she didn't receive perfectly understandable and reasonable explanations. Just went about her business playing by the same rules everybody else did, and WHAMO she's the target of a mass conspiracy to blow her off the forum.

Hahahhahahahahahahahaha!!


(Folks, nobody is that obtuse. At this point, she's malicious. Its deliberate.)

There is no "Off-Topic" sub-forum.

The Social Lounge was created not to provide a catch all, anything goes opportunity to evade the rules. In fact suggestions are made as to the intended use and the restrictions are clearly pointed out.

"Really want to talk about your new car or the movie you saw last night? This is where such topics should go. All other forum rules still apply here including the prohibition on discussing long gun carry, bashing other gun groups or LEOs and personal attacks."
You don't owe me a reply, but this does not address any of my points.

My points are essentially that 1. the rule does not make it clear that discussion of long gun open carry is completely prohibited, but rather beats around the bush and that 2. I find the "reasons" for the rule extremely illogical, even to a degree that raises suspicion.

And now I am finished in this discussion, I've said my peace. Thank you for the opportunity.

I can't understand why someone would not interpret "long gun carry is off-topic" as anything other than a prohibition when the context is forum rules. Off-topic for a thread discussion is one thing, but if something is identified as off-topic by the Adminstrator in forum-wide rules, how can it be anything other than a prohibition?

Its not like there aren't other words that have more than one meaning.

Let her plug the websites. Do you really think that anyone seeing her antics here would follow her to her own site???

I know that when she plunked down the home-made cards for her website on the table at the Golden Corral a few weeks back, I picked one up, looked at it, and said to myself, "No way in hell!!" I suspected then what has been confirmed over the last few weeks.

Does this include a thread on a tricked out Kentucky Long Rifle with bayonette lug, folding stock and forward pistol grip?
I'm still having a hard time figuring out the 30 round banana clip.... :banana:

You have your own little board. Go there and chat about whatever you want with those who want to chat with you. God knows, I don't anymore.
Is there a long gun open-carry board (that is a separate website) ? It seems like there is some demand (though perhaps less than for this forum re: handguns). I did a quick search and couldn't find one.

thanks,
Peter

Short answer = No.

There are many sites pertaining to long guns, generally by type or manufacturer, but none of which I am aware specifically devoted to OC of such. I think the demand/interest is too low to support the endeavor.
