Machine blatantly insulted someone else and has done so before. There are reasons for banning someone. We just dont say "well I think I'll ban him for no reason". No there are reasons.

It doesn't matter how many times they welcome people to the site, where they are from, or how knowledgeable they are. Its all about what was done that instant and their track record of starting drama, insulting members, etc... Machine has blatantly insulted the moderators before because he was upset he did not get designated one. He has insulted other members in times past

Its a fine line when moderating and we get called out all the time. We get called out for being too lenient. Then when we start handing out infractions and ban members for misconduct, we get called out for being communist, one sided moderators....

I think we do a pretty good job of handling the site, especially when you compare it to other sites. FRF is very pretty calm. There are other sites where the trolls are alot worse. Of course we cant catch everything but us guys do our best, but you mention all of these things, where are our "report button" posts at? You cant say nothing will be done if you report it because I know we respond to each reported post.

That is all....

But Terry does know, he has been warned about his conduct here many times. If he acted the way he does here on pretty much any other site he would have been out the door years ago.

For the record, comments like his posted below is what got him banned, not because we are nazi's and felt like banning poor Terry.

Machine has had a history of not being able to control his mouth. He went over board like usual and got a temp ban. He needed a time out. Those posts are removed that's why you all can't see what happened it doesn't need to be left out to air dry.

You really need to stop flying off the handle. Just because a thread gets removed doesn't Mean your banned. if you keep asking about getting banned that can be made available but at this time you have done nothing to get banned

Hey im sorry for going off.
I dont want to get banned and I hate to see a fellow MN member be banned. I talked to Tom, and was informed it was a temp ban, and he, as well as you guys, have brought forth "evidence" and examples, which I now see and recognize.
My apologies.

For the most part you mods do a good job and I do thank you.

But we dont have many Minnesota FRF members here, and I am doing what I can to bring more in. I have bought frf cards and I put them on rangers all the time. Its difficult to bear when one of our few members disappears.

Thanks and again, im sorry.

One of your "few" members banning is the result if his own actions. Also we dont have to prove to the whole forum why we banish or hand out punishments. We don't do that for sport it's result of an action of that member. We dont like doing it at all but sometimes it's needed.

I wish that Minnesota wasn't too far away or I would meet up with you guys. Maybe since I love this site, I should be more proactive in starting an Ohio one.

Won't be able to make it to the meet. Pretty much every weekend between now and deer opener I'm going to be busy with prep.

Plus my truck is probably the least suited Ranger for that kind of environment of all time :P

To my knowledge, there was a tri-state benefit meet planned for the Cincinnati area, but that is 4 1 /2 hours away. Someone talked about possibly a closer meet, such as Akron/Canton, which would work for me. I'll double-check that. Thanks.

Edit: There was an Ohio meet already in July/August it seems, but I think that it was Southern OH also. Some are trying to plan something soon, but I don't know. "We'll see" as the saying goes.

Nice to hear from u man.

Your 2wd truck would do fine on most of the trails.

Good luck hunting!
