    Why did 68MUDSTUD's thread get moved to the Bloody Knuckle? Is gun related stuff supposed to be over there now or something?

    It has to do with google's advertising policy

    i was going to ask the same question, but refrained from it. i would have posted it originally in the bloody knuckle, but i thought i might get more of a response out here? no offense or anything, but this is kinda getting a little out of hand with the whole "OMG, Its about guns, it should be in the bloody knuckle!!!" I thought that forum was just for buying/selling? oh well, i guess ill just have to hang out there more often. sorry mods.

    its not omg gun move it.

    it is the fact that google adds bace there placement off word searchs, thread on tires had tire adds.

    i dont know why the google/gun thing is bad weather google dosent like it of steve doesent, but he would lose money on it.

    SO the threads get moved to the password protected bloody knuckle which google cant see.

    I think someone should remove Google's freedom of speech until they realize that other people have Rights too... and they shouldn't be infringing on them just because they have lots of money. Sons a bitches... they are giving rich people everywhere a black eye with behavior like this.

    Guys:

    Steve has asked that all gun-related threads be kept in the PigPen/Bloody Knuckle. This has nothing to do with free speech, and everything to do with the owner of the site running his business how he wants to.

    If you don't like the rules at CK5, you don't have to come here. Now THAT'S what I call freedom.......:deal:

    How very american of you can can :D (THATS A BURN!)




    Really though, the Internet used to be about free speech, as the internet matures, thats changing. The day that ADS on a website became a viable source of income, the Internet took a MAJOR turn for the worst.

    Does "how he wants to" have anything to do with Google?

    Just wondering...

    that goes without saying... doesn't mean its good for the rest of us paying members.

    I have no idea. How he chooses to run his business is none of my damn business.

    If this means that much to you, then you can choose to take your money elsewhere, I guess.

    Good grief, I can't believe this little issue is causing people to whine. It's not like Steve is telling you you can't post about firearms. He's simply asking you to do it in a specific forum. Is that so hard? :dunno:

    That'a good question, Bubba. Perhaps someone spilled a bucket of beaver oil there sometime in the past, and the lubricity hasn't washed away yet. As you know, beaver oil doesn't break down very easily.

    Sorry, but I think it sucks as well. We come here and pay our dues to post in the lounge. We're not buying or selling firearms, we're writing about them. Just my humble opinion. :o

    I guess ya might as well move my rifle build thread if it hasn't been already: http://coloradok5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=195922&highlight=rifle+build

    The thing is you/we are on private property. We are guests. Steve owns the place. His place, his rules. Just like anywhere else, bars, taverns, nudie bars and the like. Paying for a membership does not give one a blank check to post anything and everything. Just like the rules on skin pics on the site. That's the way things are and that's the way things will be. You don't have to agree with it, but I would hate to see some of y'all get all bent out of shape and leave over something so trivial.

    Granted, it's like a cover charge at a bar. More privelages than those on the sidewalk, yes, but there are still rules.

    However, skin pics and such are put in a password protected forum because they are not work or child safe, and are created to create little or no response besides a typical "look at the rack on that".

    Gun threads are quite often made to gather suggestions and input from other members, and traffic in the actual bloody knuckle portion is almost nonexistant.

    FWIW, typing "guns" into google yields about 97,300,000 results. :dunno:

    Well , perhaps we can have some traffic in there now . I have no problem with it in there :thumb:

    I never visit specific forums anyhow ( Rocky Mountain excepted ) , I scan new post titles and click where I want , if it goes to the Bloddy Knuckle , so be it !!

    I'm not throwing a fit or anything, just wondering "why" the decision was made. It didn't just come out of thin air... I doubt Steve-o woke up one day and it just "came to him". Something had to happen, or be said... or something. :dunno:

    As owner of the site Steve can do whatever the heck he wants. If he wants to turn ck5 into gay porn tomorow, he could... I'd never question the authority of "The Man".. just wondering why the change was made is all. My comment about Rights was directed at Google... not Steve or CK5. They are bay-area hippy scum and want certain parts of the Constitution torn up and tossed in the can... all I was saying is that someone should mess with the part of the Bill of Rights that they hold dear... then maybe they would know what it was like.

    I am not trying to stir the pot anymore than it has already but what about the Great Outdoor section. Just a quick scan and I read 7 or 8 threads talking about different hunting weapons. Which is probably apropriate being that most people use G*ns to hunt with.

    I am all for guns and talking about them, heck I am certified to carry, but Cans right, paid members or not, it's Steve's sight. It is not like he is completely banning guns, just in a different section. I can't go to that section at work mine you, so I guess no gun talk for me.:(
