That makes... absolutely no sense whatsoever. But then again, conspiracy theorists rarely ever do.

So I was banned.
I know what it's like to be targeted by biased mods/admins, I was the recipient of an apparent collusion between two mods on a site because one didn't like an opinion I left in a topic on a product and went on a tirade about how my logic was "faulty", filling it with snide little insults. I respectfully and politely told him off (for lack of a better phrase) and he later went on to directly insult me in several other topics.

Then I got a message from another mod who issued me a warning for "personal attacks". When I responded to him with an attempt to defend myself and discuss these so-called personal attacks that he claimed I made, linking to my initial post and to the other mod's posts where he flamed me, the warning mod promptly cited a vague and unethical rule to "not piss off the staff", issued a second warning, and banned me.

Unfortunately I don't recall exactly how it was all worded while the offending mods deleted all traces of the incident, and I seem to be unable to find the topic on another forum where I posted a transcript of the whole thing to discuss with friends, but the basic outline was a mod didn't like my opinion and I suffered for it.

I'm so glad I can have a dissenting opinion on here and not be punished for it. Now, Checkman, scrap those archaic revolvers of yours and get some quality semi-autos with enough rails to mount the entire US SOPMOD kit on.

I quit going there when I got railed for daring to voice an opinion that the M-4A1 wasn't the best combat carbine ever.

I'm sorry, I didn't realize that my CAB, BSM w/V, and PH w/OLC didn't qualify me to disparage the very weapon I carried in combat.

M202 sucks.

And Cordell, they're just jealous because you can probably out shoot them with your old slabsided Sporter with no doo-dads on it.

Ohhhhhh boy. Keep talking like that and you're going to get banned for personal attacks.

Even though, a Colt 3x Scope would be pretty nifty.

Just saying. Bring you up to atleast the early '80s.

I kid. I kid.

Even though you're remark of "it may be old to you, but to me it was last tuesday" has made its way into my work vocabulary.

I deal with a lot of kids who were born with Clinton was in office. Mind boggling.

That would be my daughter and son. My daughter is graduating in a couple months from high school.

I didn't care for the man (still don't), but there is no denying that it was during the eight years of his administration that I went from being a "Young Adult" to being a full fledged adult with all the baggage. So like it or not I'll always associate him with some pretty major events in my life. Weird how things work out.

I always equate the Clinton Administration with Pop's missing Christmas for the first time that I was old enough to realize he was gone.

Operation Deny Flight and all, wierd how things stick in your mind like that.

And I always equate Operation Allied Force with my sister and her bed wetting problem with Clinton, too.

I'm screencapping Season 9 of Law & Order right now (which aired 1998-99), and there are episodes that reference the independent counsel and jokes about presidential DNA samples. Ah, good times...
