    Hello fellow THRers, I apologize for the lack of participation here lately. This is an open letter to the CEO of Facebook, Inc. regarding my account being recently disabled. Hopefully I will get a response and this will make a great impact for the 2nd amendment community. Facebook is currently the 6th most visited website on the internet.

    Guys, send a lot of simple letters. Having more than one e-mail address wouldn't hurt either...

    One thing to consider is how much the guy's company may contribute to underage binge drinking, drug use, and trolling by pedophiles... Wayne's gun collection is rather benign when considered around that...

    Good letter, and +1 to PayPal if they take you up on the offer.

    Bogie also made some spot-on comments about the other dangers of Facebook.

    Anyone think this should be part of the "letters" sticky?

    Guys, please no commentary, especially negative commentary in Activism. This is a place for action, not bitching.

    So if instead of bitching, write some letters like Waynes.

    Wow. While that sucks about the "you=shooter" thing, I applaud your efforts to still write a courteous letter to the CEO explaning things and defending your position in a calm, rational manner.

    I think I'm already a member of your group, though.

    I don't know why people use Facebook anyway. you're giving them perpetual rights to your likeness, images, and anything you post there. So you post a picture there, THEY OWN IT.

    They can literally tell you not to post that picture anywhere else, and use copyright laws against you.

    What are the mods so upset about in this thread, I dont see what they are referring to. Maybe it got deleted out?

    Why would anyone here bash on him? Except for maybe I am jealous over his rifle collection.

    Yeah. The Bogie hateses the Wayne... Until the Bogie turns around, and sees the safe fulla AR-15s and "interesting" rifles, and realizes that he really needs to work on that attention span thing... Now where was he...

    I would like to make a comment that should be very relevant to this thread, as well as all of our fights for 2A Freedoms....

    Why in the world would you use a 100% anti-gun company while trying to fight for the freedoms that they are actively suppressing.

    I truly thought that it was a joke at first.

    I saw a pro-gun website that suggested paypal wasn't actually anti-gun, they just didn't want to assume liability in gun transactions or something. Can't remember how it went though.

    It doesn't have to do with people bashing Wayne. It has to do with the purpose and direction of the Activism forum.

    Posts here should be involved with undertaking activism, or highlighting what actions you've taken and what, if any, the result was.

    The toughest lesson people will have to learn in here is to refrain from blocking. If you don't like a particular course of action, don't shoot it down or whine about how it won't work.

    Instead, start your own activist thread to get people to act on your ideas.

    However, if all you want to do is whine and complain, go to L&P.

    hey if guys check out the video's on his facebook site (for those that have it) or perhaps WChiang might post the videos. I think we need to send a message to the CTV, their anchors acted extremely unprofessionally and should be reprimanded or fired for the way they acted towards mr Chiang

    Don't you think it would be a crucial victory if we can get such a company to publicly embrace firearms? To have this whole drama come out in out in our favor would definitely make headlines somewhere. There is no denying that Facebook holds a critical niche in Internet traffic and to have them on our side would be nice. I am merely trying to represent our side of the argument to a liberal biased company.

    MPJ already has an article on the issue: http://mypetjawa.mu.nu/archives/188043.php

    As for the CTV comments, the original interview can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QSC4RqdMII

    It's a bit retarded, because they said I was going to talk about my experience at Virginia Tech, but instead blindly walked into a firearms debate. The bit of controversy is the off-air comments: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5U69ABffO-Y
