    So... Me being a new 1911A1 owner and looking for some sage advice and consul from other more experienced 1911 owners, I register on a 1911 forum. The site is nicely set up by brand etc.Well, in the first week,I have accumulated one written advisory (for posting a gun related question in the wrong forum heading) and 1 warning with 5 points against me (for mentioning the warning on the forum). The moderators seem to think this is the way things are done on all forums and I have never seen anything like this on any other forum. I guess I don't belong there. Seems like overzealous control to me. I'm not a troublemaker or --it stirrer, but this riles me up.Anybody else had this happen to them? Chuck.

    Nope, not me. But I rarely post there. I mainly just use the search.

    I've found THR to be a much better place to kick back and talk about guns, RKBA, etc.

    I will however ask that you dont mention what forum it is. The staff here may not take kindly to it.

    Nope, I won't mention the forum. But I was polite when I discussed the warning on their forum.It all just seems too controlling for no reason.Maybe they are retired drill sergeants with nothing else to occcupy their time. I'll just move on. Chuck.

    Why not name the site? Not like we don't all know which one it is.

    We don't do forum wars.

    10 demerits! BANNED!


    Just kidding. :)

    But seriously, we try not to bad mouth any other forums, as it just leads to bad feelings between both board's memberships.
