    1. It is the People that make any gathering of persons interacting work.
    Not the rules, regulations, and supervising.
    A Forum is a gathering of persons.

    2. One teaches others how to treat them.


    Internet Forums, including THR and sister sites are chocked full of information.
    Internet Forums, including THR and sister sites are being choked by dis-information, un-civil behavior, immature behavior and I am convinced those that wish us harm are members only to lurk, find posts to use against us.

    We have those that are known trainers, instructors, not only for civilians, also those that have, still do train LEO and Military persons that no longer Post on THR, or sister sites.

    We have those that are currently in LEO, Military or Protection Service , that no longer share by posting

    Gunsmiths, Gun designers, and Professionals in all sorts of Firearm Related Industries no longer post.

    We understand persons wanting to be a part of a group of like minded folks, we do not understand why they would run off the very folks to glean so much from.

    Take notice of the number of Internet Fora, that requires Verifiable ID, Someone inviting another and vouching for / verifying for that person.
    Not just for serious security reasons, which do exist, for interaction among like minded folks.

    There is nothing wrong in wanting to be a part of something, nothing wrong in having fun, and interacting both fun and serious postings.
    Being civil, polite, respectful and a decent human being should be part of one's character and not even need to be mentioned in Rules of Conduct, or Mission Statement.

    I bring this up, because some non-members that lurk here, and other sites expressed to me, how they really miss some folks not posting that used to.

    I miss these folks posting as well.

    There may be a grain of truth to the assumption that some posters have left because of the tone but it'd be just a tiny grain.

    Check the average post count of those with the highest count on just about any forum and it usually isn't much higher than 3000 or so.

    Why is that? After a year or two or three for a lot of folks what gets posted is a case of been there done that. After seeing the same subject come up for the 5th time some find it necessary to move on to not necessarily greener fields but different fields to try something new.

    For gunnies - us being a generally adventurous lot - they may even be more true.

    We can be our own worst enemies.
    When dealing with people with strong opinions, opinions often get expressed strongly.

    There are few strong supporters of the RKBAs that do not feel strongly about many other things as well. But of course people are not going to agree on everything... so there you have it. We can either agree not to talk about things; or limit ourselves to a narrow range of topics and there will stop the arguments and so begins the boredrom.... Or continue on.

    If you have thin skin, don't expose it by posting your opinions.
