I'm seeing way too many flames, personal attacks and product bashing/stalking on the forums. Here are some tips I sent to a user by the name of
"Mr. IhateeveryoneI'malwaysrightyousuckandmybuddieswillrunyouofftheforum".

1. You are not ALWAYS right.
2. There is never a GOOD reason to insult someone.
3. Do you treat people like this in face-to-face social events?
4. You weren't born with the knowledge, so at some point you must have known absolutely nothing about shotguns, too.
5. People helped you out....return the favor.
6. This is a privately owned venue and we aren't bashful when it comes to asking the unruly to leave....no matter who you are.
7. Every manufacturer of every brand has a Customer Service department and a Return Merchandise process....do you know why? Because no brand is perfect.
8. If we could buy the $3,000 shotgun we probably would, but when you can only afford $700 then that's what you buy. I apply the same reasoning to buying the Subaru rather than the Rolls-Royce I saw in a magazine.
9. Unless your gun tests included pictures of your children don't be offended when people disagree with the results you post.
10. Respond with courtesy and respect. Picture yourself talking to the other person face-to-face if you have to.
11. "Friendliest gun forum on the net" is something we make every effort to protect.

Thank you for your remarks. I've been put down on another forum when asking a question or attempting to help someone with a problem. For an example, I was really put down hard by an individual for spelling a word wrong. It makes you wonder if you want to bother posting again.
Thanks again,
Old Chief (aka: Ed Lyman) {hs#

Some users on this forum might need a refresher on this post. The general forum has become extremely hostile the last few weeks. I am worried that my frequent reporting of abuse might harm my trigger finger.

Chief:
Please do not take offense at this, but if you go to Google and download their toolbar, it has a spell checker built in that will check the spelling in forum posts. I got it and use it a lot, but probably not enuff. After you post your entry, you just hit their abc/check button before you hit submit. It is actually pretty handy. Give it a try.

You could also use Firefox as your primary browser. As you type in a forum post, words that are spelled wrong are immediately underlined in red. You then right click the word and choose the correct spelling. You can also add words to the dictionary like Invector.

Hello tallzdatank,
We make every effort to insure the 'Friendly' part. Sometimes it takes a village, though.
Regards,

:D
You are right in what you say 100%. People that ask questions here are trying to find out alot of information from different people on shotguns. Most people I would say will take the advise on the forum and then make their own judgement.
I can not stand that people insult other people on their views.
One of the best ones I read is ( Why Do They Ask These Questions, Don't They Have An Owners Manual. )
I just bought a $60,000.00 car and they tell you in the manual to change the oil every 5,000 miles, I change the oil and filter every 2,000 miles on all my cars that I have had and put over 250,000 miles on them with no serious engine problems.
My point is even if a person has a manual maybe he wants to do an over kill on the maintenance, or people that have these shotguns have a quicker way or better way to help you with a problem that is not shown in a manual.
Read The forums and if you can not be polite or help some one with your answer DON'T REPLY THE FORUM.
This is a great web sight in my opinion, so lets try to help people in this sport and encourge more people to get into the sport.
Thanks,
Fred W. Steinacker

What great suggestions you have printed up here. I also am relatively new to this forum, just starting to respond to different posts. I put up my first one in this section about how many shotguns do you own and how many is enough? Next thing I know there are over 30 responses--and all but 2 were great, funny, I laughed reading them and I really thank them all for sharing input. Now if a person doesn't feel that it is any of my business to ask how many shotguns he owns, why doesn't that person just ignore the post? I have noticed that the 2 negative posts are pretty much negative, condescending, ridiculing to all newbies who are seeking information about something they want to learn more about. My post was just for some light hearted fun and that is all.

Site Administrator,

Thank you for the post. I agree that insults towards others serves no good purpose. I joined this forum for information and found a wealth of knowledge. Site Admin, I especially enjoyed your responses #'s 4, 5, 7 and 8. My experiences so far have been positive and hope things stay that way; friendly.

Hey Man I can't tell you how nice it was to read your post! I am very new to the forum but not new to the outdoors. It has always been amazing to me the nerve of some people to flat out act like school yard bullies on the web but wouldn't have guts to say boo in person.

I am sponsored by Burris and will from time to time use this forum to figure out what people think of products that I am using or about to use.... my line of work requires honest feedback form educated users... It wouldn't do me a nickels worth of good to question the Shot Gun World users about a rifle scope but it does serve me and my business very well.... If you ever see a thread from me, you can bet, it's there as an honest attempt to draw information from an educated & active group of users. not to boost ratings or gather fans.

thanks for taking the time to read this. Your Forum is fantastic!
