krispos42's solution to the gun nuts calling me names and acting rude? Block me from GC&RKBA.



I had two posts there today. I wonder which one bothered him more?

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1172&pid=170562

Welcome to DU Ignore the assholes, of which we have more than a few.

They are why GCRA exists on DU, as well as having the GC & RKBA group which we are currently in.

/GCRA host


The replies really prove my point, which he probably didn't like much...

Then later, in reply to one of the replies to the above

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1172&pid=170606

Based on their post (reply #5) they'd be fine by me.

Please stop trying to define or control the GCRA Group. It is not yours, and it is not for you or people like you.

kthxbye


Yeah, I know this is meta, but I've decided to allow it for now. I'd also like to point out that krispos42 is not blocked from GCRA so he can reply here if he wants to.

1. ... and they continue to prove my point for me with further replies in that thread.

 

The best part is that it's in a thread about an awesome Jim Jefferies standup routine, so they'll just keep kicking that back to the top

re: "Ignore the assholes" I didn't say who, but they gladly self-identified

2. Mostly whiners and wusses, why else would they need a gun in their

pants to walk down the street?

3. I figured out how to block myself a while back.

You can trash entire forums.

5. Congrats, you finally irritated them to the point that they gave up.

I refuse to go there and it just eats at their soul. If one of them didn't cut n paste my posts he wouldn't have anything to say.

Another of them recently took me to task over saying the AR15 was a POS for anything but close in combat. Follow the links and half of them agree with me. The most popular ARs have 20 inch barrels but good varmint guns have 28-30 inch barrels and are bolt action, a whole different animal from the AR platform. The longer barrels add velocity (which is crucial to overcoming the 55 grain light weight projectile) and accuracy. The only positive input for the AR was the ability to jerk off 10-15 rounds at a running target. Really? That's a good idea? Like you can know what lies past the target and make a humane kill on a running target?

If you want a good varmint gun try a 25-06. Twice the weight of the .223 and the same velocity. Flat trajectory, not susceptible to
windage and with custom loads can exceed 4000 fps. All states accept it for game up to elk.

I post this to say I can run down that rabbit hole with the best of them. Better than most.

6. If they didn't have reading comprehension problems they wouldn't be diehard RKBAers in the 1st place

 



My post didn't say all gun owners are assholes, but that's how they're trying to represent it. I said there are "more than a few" assholes on DU, and it can be wise to just ignore them. Those that chose to self-identify that my comment was about them in particular, well, that's on them. Perhaps it's because the shoe fits so well, and they know it deep down.

It reminds me of that Carly Simon song....

7. You posted a broad-brush smear of members of the group,

 

just like Hoyt did. Are you surprised you bad behavior finally resulted in your being blocked?

9. As someone who lost a family member to gun violence, I have been given their

standard "sorry for your loss" so many times I finally said screw 'em. They don't believe it, they just continue to mouth that piety and go back to promoting their cause.

They really don't think that people like me haven't seen that dismissive 4 word reply so MANY times it has to be taught to them as how to respond to people like me. It's arrogance and they don't mean it, not one bit.

So if I knew people in real life who said that I would walk away and never talk to them again. Trashing their group makes them go away on my DU. simple.

10. I trashed it sometime ago.

They don't care enough beyond lip service and they can barely manage that!
