    It seems they don't appreciate it if you repeatedly disagree with people there, especially if you're good at using the English language to explain why you disagree. And god help you if the person you're disagreeing with is a custom fabricator. :hs:

    Oh well. Probably saved me a bunch of money in the long run.
     
  2. Thank God you can still post here.

    Not at all. I use to spend a LOT of time over there. Great board for flashlights and mods.

    I don't like trolls either. I do have an argumentative personality, no doubt, and I seem to be cursed with a different viewpoint than most people; put the two together and I end up in a lot of arguments. However, while I'm usually aware that saying something will piss someone off, I say it because I'm expressing my opinion, not specifically to piss them off. Trolls are people who say things specifically to piss people off, and don't really care about the discussion other than as a tool to irritate people with. I very rarely do that, and only when someone has well and good gotten under my skin in the first place.

    I wasn't trying to direct hate at them, I was just bitching about it in the one area of OT that would actually know what CPF is. What I like about OT is nobody here is special or above reproach, and while I bust people's asses from time to time, it's even more common for me to get my ass busted, so it all comes out in the wash.

    I'm glad the mods here don't ban people because they disagree with an exalted custom-fabricator's design aesthetic, or some other nonsense like that. Seriously, I can't count the number of times someone responded to me on CPF by saying "you have no idea how special Member X is to us, who are you to dare to question them?" Uh, I'm a potential customer. Is that good enough?

    Anyway, just blowing off some steam.

    Arc6 by Arc Flashlight. The product photos on www.arcflashlight.com are shit, but there's a link to some customer photos on the site, and that's where I got my AV from.

    The thing is built like a tank; I'm sure I could run it over with a truck and it would still work. Probably not worth $250, but it's made in the USA, so I don't feel bad about it.
