New rules?

Bad day at work Coronach?
Since when are the political aspirations of a notorious gun-grabber not relevant to this forum?
Since when are discussions of armed invasion of our national borders not relevant?

Geez...take a pill.

Oh, and adios, folks. I come here because I have the site bookmarked. That is easily changed. I, for one, do not abide tyrants of any form.

Here it goes again. :rolleyes: I understand Coronach's reason for shutting down all those threads, (read his post) and I too have noticed that this board lately has not been as civil as before.

Reading the closure message at the bottom will provide some insight.

1.) All topics and posts must be related to firearms or civil liberties issues.
2.) Multiple user registrations are prohibited.
3.) As a family-friendly board, we ask that you keep your language clean. If you wouldn't say it in front of your dear old Grandma, you probably don't want to say it here.
4.) Spamming, trolling, flaming, and personal attacks are prohibited. You can disagree with other members, even vehemently, but it must be done in a well-mannered form. Attack the argument, not the arguer.
5.) We cannot provide a comprehensive list of "Things Not To Say".Posts that are contrary to the above policies, or to the mission of The High Road, may be edited or deleted at our sole discretion. Membership may be revoked if such a step is deemed necessary by us. We're a private venture enabled by an all-volunteer staff. Please treat this venue as a polite discussion in a friend's home and respect the wishes of the hosts.

We have noted that the civility of L&P has been plummeting of late. Correlated with this is yet another resurgence of political posts that do not meet the criteria as outlined in the rules of conduct. Just because a post is 'political' does not mean it belongs here. It must address firearms issues or civil liberties issues directly. "Civil liberties are in danger because Bush lied, people died!" and "we will lose all of our guns becuase Hillary has anger issues!" will not cut it. Post directly, not obliquely, about how a given topic has an impact on RKBA or civil liberties.

Thank you,

Staff at THR

I get Coronach's reasons, but I still think he overdid it.

PM is the proper way to discuss moderator actions you disagree with.
