LMAO...Gotta love the selected & targeted moderation...i was wondering how long it would take...

We have humerous attempts meant in good spirit, to try & keep tempers in check, selectively deleted, and yet we have ridiculous statements that are clearly bagging the thread, & thus the credibility of the forum, not to mention many of its well meaning & knowledgeable posters, in a bigoted way, & probably intended to incite argument, left up for the world to see... :unknown: :lol:

Like this for example...
[Edited to remove previously removed content that was reposted.]

So you have removed my polite "blinking Gif reply, clearly questioning the merit of such a ridiculous, insulting & non-relevant post, yet you leave this one up... :unknown: :crazy:
Because you know, suggesting a thread is becoming useless, & so shift this perspective for the better with suggestions to upgrade to a laser guided system is in the spirit of the thread & an open welcoming forum...


And this...
[Edited to remove previously removed content that was reposted.]

This is a thread about advising would-be/newbie shooters on the obvious need for higher magnification scopes for target shooting...
Yet, in your moderation, you see it fit that this clearly insulting & ganging up on the OP & bagging him, and others, for target shooting, is worthy of being left up... :shock: :lol:

Was i misunderstood & people took offence to attempts at humerous compliments of them knowing what they were doing, without resorting to aggressively bagging either side of a clearly misinformed & immaturte arguement,...or is this just an obvious headhunt... :unknown: :?

Hooray for censorship & open-minded moderation ... :clap: ...just saying... :)

No doubt this will be moderated too, but i dont think its impolite to state the obvious, that the actions of moderated censorship here dont seem to match the intended & spoken "constitution"...

:problem:

If your comments were deleted.
It had nothing to do with me Sungazer.
I never reported you.
I have nothing against you.
I think your comments got deleted because your comments were rude/useless/pointless and counter-productive.

The fact that other utterly ignorant & bigoted statements that are clearly intended to incite divisive arguement, are left up, indicates to me that this may targeted at certain people...

Ill keep to myself where i think its coming from...but, it is ridiculously petty & immature...!!...

Whilst its possible to do if not really being invested in the betterment of the forum, i really do struggle to believe that one could seriously censor this way if it were an open minded & non-targeted attack...

As said in my reply to your private message:

Blackened wrote:A number of posts in that topic were removed. Some were yours, the majority were not. This was done in a fashion I thought best balanced removing problematic content while maintaining the continuity of the topic, regardless of who posted it.

Any perception of bias against you is your own misperception.

To be blunt mate, I don't give a s**t if someone has been here a day, a decade, whether they share the same views as me or are the polar opposite. It's all the same to me.

In the event I review one of your posts, it's treated exactly the same as had anyone else written the same thing.

You'll notice your reports you made about multiple posts have been actioned. One deleted, one edited.

As always, we will continue to moderate the forum in a way we feel is best for the greater good, and not in a way that is subject to any one member's personal views, feelings, or interpretations.


And as always - viewtopic.php?f=8&t=13280#p224669

Let's keep it on-topic from here on.

The who / what / why of what was previously posted doesn't matter.

The topic at hand is about scope magnification advice for new shooters.

If you're still here looking to say something outside of that, about the arguments that have come before, don't.

(Not directed at you specifically, Sungazer. Just a general post.)

I’m the same TFE
I’m really happy with my cheap as Korean made bushnell AR. It does everything it’s meant to do for the shooting that I’m pursuing.
And hey we both had budgets to go by. I still think that for the money they are a good thing.
I’m not silly and I know it’s no good for BR. If I ever down that path then I’d have to get a super expensive specialist BR scope. To be honest I think BR is a little ‘elitist’ for me. It’s like it’s had all the skill sapped out of it and replaced with expensive machinery and if you don’t have all the gear, you have little hope.

I wish I had more magnification too but for under 200m stuff it is great. I don’t have trouble seeing targets at 200 but I can’t see the bullet holes. But now I have a spotting scope for that reason. It’s happy days!

Ahh deano the rabbit Warren gets deeper. I got myself a 36x scope for the 22lr, and no i don't do benchrest... and i didn't even have to sell a kidney. Looking at 100m through a 25x i was going man i need more mag.... is funny how our eyes and senses Adjust and want more and more.

Don't have to do BR to have good equipment.
Blame it on the phone auto correct

Should this discussion be making a distinction between shooting paper and hunting? I am a dinosaur. I still shoot bunnies with the fixed 4x32 I bought in 1970. But I am not seeing bunnies as clearly in the spotlight these days so I I think it’s time to join the new world and go a variable 3-9 power. Surely 18 power would be useless for those 20M shots?
