    There are a lot of solid, intelligent voices in this forum, which help to set it apart from some others. I'd hate to see those voice terminate or move on. I think a PM is the fair and proper answer.

    Sometimes they're too chicken and don't want to be backed into a corner and proven wrong.

    Just call them out and get the flame war started. Then everyone will get their feelings hurt, the moderator will have to close the post, and some of us will be better friends for it, others will move on to other places for it.... I used to run a BBS back in the day before the Internet, and it is the same story. People get online and they think they can be anything they they want to be but they never want to be themselves because they are afraid of sounding too mundane, or boring, or like someone that no one wants to talk to because they feel that way in real life. Eventually they gain confidence in the "persona" that they have created and inconsistencies appear, and eventually someone calls them out on it. People side with the person to help protect them because they think the person is the person and they want to help, then others who realize the inconsistencies run to the aid of the person who called them out, and no one wants to be wrong, so you get a nice little rift. Then next thing you know you have a small group of people go off to another forum with a similar intention as the original, but with the underlying idea to not invite those that shamed them, and eventually it all falls apart. And as for the original place. It may keep on going just fine, but there will be less color and fun, but because it was already established others will come and take those places and the cycle repeats.....

    In USCCA, instead of saying (full word) BS, we call it "Pelosi", e.g., "That's a lot of Pelosi...!" I think it is much nicer too...

    I'd go with trying with PM's if that doesn't provide results then I'd call them out like festus said. One way or the other it needs to be addressed!

    I'd PM them. If no result, I'd take it to the site admins, then if nothing.. Call them out on it..

    I may not be impressive, but at least at times I'm entertaining.. Whether I mean to be or not..
    (Go ahead, you can laugh at my expense!! )
    Sometimes (more times in some peoples opinions) I'm talking out my, well you know, but someone else comes along behind me with a great posts and straightens out my mess...
    Thanx folks for having my back..
    For those that LIE about their Military Service.. You should be ashamed of yourself and STOP IT!!!

    Good men and women have died, you don't need to desecrate that with your lies.. (IMHO)
