A small request from me...
« on: August 13, 2008, 01:58:10 pm »
This is just a small request that I would like to ask of everyone.
(and of myself included actually...... :-[)

I would like to ask that we, as posters, please try to refrain from posting anything that is racially charged or advocates violence.
That is not what any of us are about.. even though we all do have very passionate strong opinions on many issues.. we must remember that Down Range is read and looked upon as a leading website in gun use and gun ownership.
We are also starting to have a large following of readers in the political section, So once again..although we all pretty much feel the same way....we need to remember to post what we morally and politically can stand behind.

I hope everyone is okay with this.. I had a hard time picking the right words in saying what I wanted to say. I hate censorship of any kind..and this really isn't censorship.. it is just 'not getting too radical' in our postings.
 Down Range in my opinion is a cut above the rest..and there is a reason for that. It is because of the integrity and class of our forum members. This forum is unlike any out there and we hear it time and time again how awesome this place is and how great the people are who are members of it .
I just want to keep it that way.
 
Thanks so much .... :-*

Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference. - George Washington

Wow...that dress code article is absurd. That is definitely the litmus test as to what is important in society; materialism vs. character. 
"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."
Theodore Roosevelt
