Kill the AT Uproar thread?
It has been suggested that I should kill the AT Uproar thread. Since you the members make this board what it is, I will let you all give your input.
Should it stay or should it go?

I voted to kill it. Not because of all the baseless conspiracy theories against Martin and the AT moderators. Not because of the opinions given regarding Martin or their marketing strategies. I voted that way simply because this girl is a human being and may come on here one day and want to be a member. After the insults and personal attacks that were spewed out, I'm sure she would think very little of this site and the people on it.
This site has alway been better than that in my opinion. Calling a girl a trailer trash hooker based on a picture was pathetic.
Opinions are fine and that is what makes these forums great, but that thread served no purpose other than to let a few kids that got the boot from At do a little retaliatory bashing.Pathfinder Arrow Wraps

I don't understand the point of the thread and I also do not want to see this site turn into AT, which in my opinion is a bunch of testosterone fueled crap.
I say kill it.

The thread has brought plenty here. Often times threads like that can be turned into learning threads. Wont be the last time a women dresses that way and models.
You going to kill ever women thread. She knew darn well what the thread was going to cause.

I voted to kill it because it stopped being about the girl a while ago and now it is about people bashing other people, bow companies, and the Mods from other sites... if it was just making comments about the girl I'd leave it, since its basically personal attacks against others I said kill it.No I'm not dead

Sorry Chris thats why you are the Admin.........to make those decisions. We are just lowly members of a great forum.

You are right it turned in to a bash thread but that is not the reason why I put that thread up. I am not even a user of AT. I do go on the site but I do not post over there. You made it clear who those "kids" were, just don't start generalizing everyone. The best part about this site is that there really is no need for a mod, rarely ever is there anything that needs to be moderated,unlike what seems to take place on AT in my opinion. Actually the best part about this site is that when you ask an archery question, EVERYONE tries to HELP without bashing.SAVE A BUCK--SHOOT AN OUTFITTER

I have been staying out of this one, but I remember when I first joined, there were some porn pics posted and many of you commented on how your small children sometimes sit with you while you are on the computer. Are these pics you would like to have pop up on your screen while your kids are watching?
I love this site, but when there is bashing going on...I start looking for other forums

Bashing happens everywhere. We've pretty much all expressed our views from all corners.
You don't have to remove it but locking it wouldn't hurt.

I think you should delete some threads that are out of line and get personal.
I do think this is not something we need or should allow because we want youth here and we need to be role models. Theres always limits.

I don't feel this board needs the nazi iron fist ruler. I hope it never gets to that level. That said, there will always be a certain amount of bashing/flaming on any forum. It's just like your extended family. Show me a family that doesn't argue and I'll show you a disfunctional family.

Locking it would be fine with me. I think it has pretty much ran its course anyways. I don't think there is much to learn from it by leaving it, but locking it will put an end to it. Plus, I would hate to see the horses butt post be deleted. I laughed at that one myself.....Pathfinder Arrow Wraps
