    See that forum-wide announcement? That me.

    Backstory: Some faggot named yoda8585 or whatever posted a Mapul ASAP Plate and MS2 Sling for $150 (No joke). I just pointed out how bad of a deal that was, I dont remember what I wrote, its deleted now anways.

    So I get a ban, and the supermod on his high fucking horse decides to send me this gem of a PM

    Shame on you, meaning shame on you for trying to rip people off. (What I posted to the seller)

    Then he posts the announcement. Apparently I'm the straw that broke the camels back.

    Hur-fucking-ray.

    It's bad to rip off people like that but the rules of that site are pretty clear.

    Fuck CGN. It used to be useful and actually get stuff done, now they just ask for money to give to lawyers. No fucking thank you.

    I left almost half a year ago now. Only times I go back are for links to shit like this.

    actually its dedicated more to the laws, and if you knew anything about CA gun laws and what CGN has done for the state (in past years) you'd understand its actually a great resource.

    however as of late its become a giant pile of steaming fecal matter.

    There is, but it sucks more than CGN.

    I just kind of made OTWMD my exile forum :hsd:

    People will pay what they believe it is worth. If $150 seems reasonable to someone, who are we to say that it isn't? :big grin:unno:

    On the one hand, if the rules of their forum say no negative comments in a sale thread, then that's perfectly reasonable and if you broke the rule, you broke the rule.

    On the other hand, if they are going to have that rule, they should be policing the forum and getting rid of ridiculous posts like that.

    "ridiculous" is arbitrary.

    I'm still there, good deals with people not realizing what they're selling and needing to pay rent. Like my $65 M38 pick up last week.

    If you are selling a new product above MSRP you have the responsibility to notify the customer. It's pieces of shit who run forums like that and pieces of shit trying to scam people that have caused prices to skyrocket.

    Calguns is a good site and I like what they do for gun owners in California. However I hate how a lot of these type of sites are run like a wannabe Army organization with strict rules and douche's who take things way too seriously. Kind of reminds me of a lot of shooting ranges.

    Our local outdoor rifle range only lets you load 1 round into the mag/gun at once. Unless you're shooting rimfire, then you can load 5.
