    With our continued growth and influx of new members, it's become necessary to highlight our mission yet again.

    I'm noticing a tone in some new members posting style that runs counter to our grain. Be helpful and kind or find another forum. There are plenty of survival and firearm boards that allow belligerent and 'better than' attitudes.

    We do not.

  4. I am taking time to read the rules over again.

    Don't see anything unreasonable or asking to much.

    I always try to not upset people I disagree with. I may be right, but no reason to worry them if they want to be right too.

    Besides which, I have found it much easier to catch flys with honey than vinigar.

    Keeping an open mind

    I agree with the CoC direction. We need to share ideas and we need to maintain open communication. It is difficult for anyone to keep an open mind while being attacked. If we disagree on a where to fish then don't get in my boat and I won't get in yours. We can still hope that both camps get enough fish for dinner. Sinking each others boat won't help.

    It's much better to make observations than judgments.

    Have always enjoyed the "company" here--even the ugly smelly ones with the snaggly buck teeth stained with tobacco and wearing one strap overalls. It is the banjo playing ones that bother me--lol. Seriously--no, this just too much fun--lol. Really, especially in today's economy/world we need each other's imput, knowledge, and wisdom to make it through what I believe is going to be a rough time. Any that ridicule/condemn those who try to help have no place among us and like the OP said--seek life elsewhere. There is way too much in other "theaters" creating havoc for us--we do not need it here. Do not post a lot here but way into preps/etc. and enjoy the time spent here. Thanks for allowing an old redneck back woods dirt farmer with too many guns on your site. Keep up the good work and God bless---please.
