    Just so everyone is aware, we do not allow blatant bashing of products, companies or other forums.

    We've recently had an influx of new members that have been banned elsewhere. This has led to some posts that were not appropriate.

    All new members are welcome here as long as they can obey the forum rules.
    Lets keep the forum fun and interesting.

    I hear you chris. That kind of stuff will also run off your members. You are a sponsor of AT. So nocking them is kind of like nocking this place. You have enough fine members here that know it is not right. Maybe we can rub off on them a little.

    ;) 10-4 Chris, roger, will-co...:madgrin:
    The main reason I wound up here was the unbeleivable lack of bashing on this forum...lately it's been getting pretty busy around here and there has been some pot-stirring and such...hopefully it will settle down quickly on it's own.:biggrin1:

    I know that alot of use bash one another, but it is all in fun and we know it. But new comers and outsiders may see it as bashing. That could be why some just lerk and not sign up. I will try to keep it down.

    Is This considered bashing?

    Recently I left a comment that contained and I quote myself here.."I personally thought that the XForce pulled back like a broken down Ford..". I sure hope this is not considered bashing a PSE or a Ford. My wife says I am really a smart expletive deleted and I should warn anyone that reads or listens to half of what I have to say so they don't think I am a total jerk. She used some different words that are unsuitable for all ages actually. So in case I offended anybody... sometimes things just come out....

    Personally I would not consider this as Bashing. It was saying that you thought that particular bow was harsh. You're not bashing the whole PSE line and were only saying what you thought about one particular portion of one particular product. I may be wrong and only my opinion.:noidea:

    An honest opinion is just that and valued IMO, but seeking out every opportunity to constantly bad mouth a particular product is bashing.

    The Gods honest truth is either politically correct or tactful...that is all that I can come up with.

    Your right, I shouldn't have to make these posts. We have a lot of great people here and a great family of forum posters. I just don't want things to get out of hand.

    It's just that time of the year and most fourms are going thru the same thing right now....kinda a cabin fever type of thing. Hunting season is over and still too cold to get out and things just seem to go astray for a bit. We have the same thing going over oun our site. That's one reason why I like coming here also, just a down to earth group of archers that like to enjoy themselfs.

    But, also with the growth of the site, you will begin to run into some of the growing pains that go along with it. One of the most important reasons to have a good staff of people behind you.:rockon:
