I'm 65, so a lot of us Senior Members were "raised" during the same "age/generation" as you.I have watched new members run off by senior members because of things they have asked. I've seen smart ass comments made to them that have nothing to do with the discussion. I got the feeling this site was run by snobs that had their own little click. They didn't want to be bothered to help.
I stopped coming around because of how I was made to feel here. I came back to the site to read the jokes you post. Started scanning topics again and reading comments. It's better but still needs work.
I think it's shameful that people are allowed to treat other members, others who share the same interest like that here. We come to be helped and learn. To help others if we can. We don't need the insults. As the super moderator I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.
Perhaps it's my age. I'm 73 and was raised in a different age. Maybe it's me. But I don't want to be made to feel stupid because I asked for help or tryed to help someone who asked for help.
Two in one day! What is happening. That's funny chit right there.Well, I'm glad we finally found a topic this forum embraces. No pesky trivial matters on firearms or its legalities.
Of course, the older members here will try to yank the newbies, with news like, "Thank you for joining our forum! You might want to stop by our introductory page and learn which of our members are out today due to psychiatric appointments..."
Come to think of it, I personally have an appointment coming...
Not to even mention my Colt/Walther/Umarex 22 M4 I took a beating for.Besides... so-called "Senior Members" are not exempt from Forum elbow jabs. Ask the Kid about the time he told us about poser ivory grips for a BBQ gun. That was brutal.
Phil, you should write for Hallmark.....I don't know if you're stupid, but if you "feel stupid" that's on you. You're in charge of your "feelings", not others in cyberspace.
Generally, gun forums aren't snowflake safe spaces for crying sessions and sharing butthurt feelings, nor tiptoeing around bubble-wrapped teacups. That said, KT membership is a relatively easygoing bunch.
If you're interested in "ranking", my suggestion is put on your big boy pants. This is not a good look for a Marine.
