    That's weird the spaces stay in place for me

    see
    I see your post with "see" on a new line but no blank line between it and the prior sentence. Interestingly the blank line shows up in the quoted text I see when I click "reply with quote". Not sure it's worth chasing, I've gotten used to the lack of punctuation from text messages etc. I'm running Windows 7 and IE 9, not sure that matters but it could.

    Well that explains why the OP keeps insisting that he put in "paraphrases"

    I am not sure if this will help, but you might go to the Settings tab at the top of any page and scroll down to this portion:

    Miscellaneous Options
    Message Editor Interface:

    Enhanced Interface - Full WYSIWYG Editing
    Basic Editor - A simple text box
    Standard Editor - Extra formatting controls

    When posting messages to the forums or other members, there are three interface types available to you. The simplest of these is a simple text box, while the last is a fully-fledged WYSIWYG editor, which allows you to format your text as you want it and see the results immediately.

    Depending upon the capabilities of your web browser, you may not be able to use all of these options. If you experience problems when posting messages, try switching to a different interface type.


    Perhaps you have a box checked that does not allow the entered spacing to remain after the post is entered.

    But perhaps it will make future posts easier to read. I tend to go crosseyed reading posts that are really long and run together.

    This discussion has happened on this forum before numerous times the point I’m trying to get across here is that not everyone is like you. Not everyone wants random strangers attempting to interact with them at Wal-Mart and not every one is going to take your advances in the spirit you intend.
    Ok so if you have a problem with it, walk away. Clearly the guy he talked with didn't, so what's the problem? You're trying to convince him to stop being friendly because you don't want to talk to anybody you don't know in public.

    You sound like a vet who didn't reintegrate back into society well. Yes, you should always have a certain amount of situational awareness about you but at the same time, the local Wal-Mart isn't Fallujah.

    If that's how you want to live, fine no worries, but don't make everybody else wrong because of it.

    Yes it is a shame that law abiding people OC'ing are treated badly by SOME officers.... but kudos to you for taking the time to change the perception that ALL officers will treat an OC'er badly.

    You've never been to my wal mart.

    Also, I think I mentioned up thread that I was attacked by someone who did essentially what the OP did , just with a different topic of conversation to close the gap on me before attacking and I was in full uniform and clearly identifable as a private security guard. Experiences like that color your view of humanity

    To be clear, when I wrote my original response I didn’t get that the OP was clearly identifiable as a police officer. That changes things to a degree but I’d still be a little on the defense (which is not the same as being defensive) as was the person the OP interacted with, because it isn’t the norm of behavior. In my experience police don’t start random conversations with people to compliment them on their choice of firearms.

    The fact that the person the OP interacted with also went on the defense initally indicates that I assessment of the situation is not out of the norm, although I would have remained somewhat on my guard just because the OP was a police officer (Again, my experience doesn’t include Police Officers starting random conversations just for the Hell of it.)

    I’d also like to clarify that when I say that I’d have my guard up or be on the defense I’m not saying that I’d square up on the guy (especially not if he a uniformed Police officer) but I would certainly take note of the abnormal behavior and (assuming a non uniformed person approaching me) at least mentally start preparing for a confrontation or go from DEFCON 4 to 3 if you will because it isn’t normal behavior and abnormal behavior can be a precursor to an attack.

    Is that really so hard to understand?

    I don't read them;

    if one cannot express their thoughts in an organized readable manner, the assumption is that they really don't have thoughts worthy of deciphering from a wall of text.
