    Trolls. Anyone who over the course of time has proven that their main goal here is not to share and discuss information but to attack, and incite others.

    OK, I took some time...

    I took the time to read all of the posts in this thread and feel I should say something. I follow some of the threads and post only when I feel the need. I have never seen JJ post anything that riled me. Now the "other" Iceman, I would just not post and move on to some more cordial topic that fit me. I for one, feel that Luke is doing a great job and I don't envy his position or title for one moment. As far as "trolls", I look at number of posts and generally that tells me that a person maybe new and not understanding what we are about.
    I wish we could all play well together, but, alas: we all were not raised the same...
    The Iceman, Akron, Oh
    Shoot straight and be safe...

I try to deal with everyone as I would in person (and believe me when I say I have been "educated" for showing severe disrespect). Admittedly, my temper gets the better of me, sometimes.

    It's a great site. Maybe I just need some time off.
    That is one of the problems with society now. We have ways of communicating other than face-to-face. Tends to make people behave in a way that does not truly reflect the person they REALLY are. I have a really hot temper sometimes, about certain issues, and feel like getting mean or sh_ _ _y with people, but I do like Lukem said, I walk away for a while. I never seemed to have any REAL issues with anyone, even Iceman or Gov5, even though I am positive we have gotten on each others nerves at times. Troll or not, we all have something to say, and we also have the OFF button. Hate to see you go, liked reading some of your posts.

    Folks who post here, in most instances, don't know each other on a personal level...have never met and have no idea what "life experiences" the other has had to endure. Written posts do not allow us to "read" voice inflections or facial expressions. While there ARE some who choose to verbally attack forum members and their posts, we MUST put this into perspective and realize that they are but strangers to us...their negative opinions of us DO NOT affect our lives in any way...trolls love to drag us into confrontational debate and we should never give them that kind of power over us. Bottom line: it matters NOT what strangers think of us...it only matters how God, family and friends view our actions and opinions.

    So...we all need to learn how to accentuate the positive (our deeply held convictions and loving concern for the U.S.A.) and eliminate the negative (ignore posts that we may perceive to be personal attacks on "the positive") and all will be well at USACarry!

    Just a little advice from "Mom". And I pledge to do my best to take my own advice!!

    This is really a serious inquiry. I have missed a lot of posts, mainly due to my very busy work schedule. My time to spend on the computer is limited by a variety of factors. I do really enjoy this site and seeing different perspectives on 2nd amendment issues mostly, but also other topics. My question: Could someone please tell me why THEICEMANMPLS was banned. I must have missed some important thing, and would really like to know. Most of the posts over the months that I have read by him gave me the impression that he was quite intelligent, and had much to add. He must have posted something that was real offensive, but I truly do not know what. Anyone care to enlighten me?

    I don't remember exactly but he did something that was against the site rules, prob. flaming and name calling but again I don't remember. I do not just ban people because I feel like it. I sent warnings and then if things don't stop I ban. And there hasn't been that many.

    LukeM, Only four that I know of.

  10. I generally troll forums of other topics as a hobby of mine. Scientology, racist, extremist, feminist, and relationship websites have fallen victim to me. Extremists are always the easiest kinds of people to troll. They feel so passionate about a specific topic that they feel an emotional attachment to it. Anything that even hints of opposing that view is met with extreme opposition. I have decided to quit trolling this forum because it's like kicking a three-legged dog. It's just way too easy. It actually takes the enjoyment out of the process. I encourage all of you to understand that you should take what you read on the Internet with a grain of salt. There are those of us who prowl on the Internet in search of stirring up controversy for our own entertainment. You would be wise to remain emotionally detached from a website comprising of nothing more than text. If you allow even the most subtle of words to affect you, how can you possibly prosper in a live debate against those who would love nothing more than Constitutional rights taken away from us?

    For more information on the art of trolling, a quick Google search would reveal all. I feel it would be against site rules for me to link specific sources, but anyone interested can PM me for specific sources regarding this Internet phenomenon.

    Anyway, it was happy trolling, and you guys are fun to play with. I look forward to more discussions with you all about taboo and sensitive subjects.

    Hello everyone.
    To set the record straight Luke. I was never warned.
    Before I was banned, I said something to the effect of "why don't we get rid of the ultra religious, and conspiracy talk, and this would be a better site.

    IMO, I disagreed with the the conspiracy theorists, and the ultra religious members to often. "They wined to the site admin. He was tired of dealing with their complaints. So the easy thing to do was to get rid of me.

    I always said this is a great site, and still think that.

    If, I offended anyone while I was here, please don't take it personal. I was addressing the topic, not the person.

    JJ, IMO, you are a real man. We had a difference of opinion, and we settled it like men.

    Some of you need to look up to JJ.

    To those of you who sent me emails of support, thank you. For those of you who wrote bad things about me, you are forgiven.

    Take care all.

    Sincerly,
    THEICEMANMPLS
