You will not be missed

Recommended Posts

You have voluntarily joined a brotherhood of like-minded men and women, of your own free will. We are all here to learn, teach and share on a topic that we all take pride in being part of. As a continuous and rapid growing community, we are in a constant struggle to maintain order and structure. We are a fluid group, as we attempt to keep up with a forever evolving subject matter. Even our name, 308AR, is archaic in that the rifle format has surpassed into more calibers, far beyond that of the original .308 Win.

Our community is small, but tighter than any other in existence. We have members who've traveled thousands of miles to just go shooting with another member. Mild acquaintances have evolved into strong family bonds that have invited attendance to graduations and coming-home events. We've seen members families off on deployment, and stayed around to welcome them home after a tour. A screen name is replaced by a real name, and added to a wedding guest registry. We've even mourned the loss of member after his passing. This kind of bond ONLY happens HERE.

All new comers are screened by our staff, not to separate, but to assist. A history of our forum, a description of our banter and antics and a warning of etiquette are commonplace for new comers who have trouble "fitting in" at first. A personal PM from our staff, combined with a warm welcome to the forum.

Understand that we have the expectation that as adults, you will act and react as an adult. While our shenanigans and tomfoolery may be childish, our morales and maturity must be unwavering.

No one is above this, and even our longest standing and greatest contributing members have been subject to correction and faced the wrath of a nine-fingered Yeti (you'll have to stick around to understand that inside joke). We do not attack, nor do we allow attacks, on our members... but if you shiit your pants, expect to be called out to explain yourself... and clean up your own mess.

We welcome all who wish to be a positive contribution to our growing family.

BUT...

IF YOU CAN'T FIGURE YOU'RE SHIIT OUT...

IF YOU CAN'T FIGURE HOW TO HANDLE A SITUATION, THAT IS LITERALLY JUST A BUNCH OF WORDS ON YOUR COMPUTER SCREEN...

IF YOU CAN'T SUCK UP YOUR PRIDE AND SELF RIGHTEOUSNESS FOR JUST A FEW MOMENTS AND COME TO THE UNDERSTANDING THAT YOU MAY NOT BE CORRECT...

IF YOU LACK THE COMMUNICATION SKILLS TO ACCURATELY ARGUE A POINT, WITHOUT RESORTING TO INSULTS, NAME-CALLING OR OTHER IDIOCY...

Kindly work your way towards the nearest exit and let yourself out. You will not be missed.

AND...

In the situation where one fails to take the gentleman's way out, your words and behavior are etched on our boards forever, never to be censored and to be forever a reminder to new comers. After the ban hammer drops, you will never again be able to rejoin our dinner table. Depending on the circumstances you might not even be able to view our pages again.

You, of all people, especially in this situation...

YOU WILL NOT BE MISSED.

There's a California button on my toaster so I can't swap slices of bread too fast.

 

Also, thank you for that post Robo. That is an interesting narrative for this site. (newly revealed to me anyway)

Well said Robo.

As far as Carbs and crabs. The Aitkins diet you give up carbs. The Hefner diet you get crabs.

Well said Rob. And you're always welcome to the table brother. I was more than happy to share a couple (just a couple) beers with you and our other brother Rene at a table that night after another brother's graduation......that is....before the manager asked if we were all okay after drinking so much. <lmao> Obviously.....our answer was YES.

 

All kidding aside though. I take this group of guys VERY seriously. It's a group of friends that I wish I had stumbled across many years before than I had. Just because how it was stated. We're all among one like mindset. From the ones that I've personally met.......to the ones that I just feel comfortable fuking with through the great vast interweb.....there's nothing that I wouldn't do for the ones that know that THEY ARE my brother. All of you know who you are........if you like it or not. As I've said before.....I'll give $hit away to the guys that I know here, before I'd ever sell it to a stranger. And some of you know that. And that's not bragging. It's just the way I'm wired.

 

To the guys that try to come across this place and act like they know everything...and have done everything.....We don't really have the patience for people like that. We'll be courteous.....but then somebody will call you on your bull$hit. We're NOT like the other SF wannabe forums. We're nothing but friends trying to help out each other......and others that are just becoming aware of the AR platform (and others) that we're all fans of. Regardless of manufacture. Period! Is there ball-busting? HELL YEAH! Is there kidding and joking? HELL YEAH! After all. If you don't have a sense of humor in life.....what the hell do you have?

 

I'll step down now.

Carry on.

As you were.

As long as I didn't cause Drew to shiit out another rabid monkey, I might be okay.  <dontknow>
