As has been said, this and other firearm forums' active membership has been studily declining. And another one bites the dust. Not how I would have handled it under the OP's unique mitigating circumstances plus, but hey, it's not my forum.

The money he charges to build an AK you'd think he could afford the vendor fee.

Yo.

The Hungarian parts builds weren't bad, but like many others I had magazine fitment issues with surplus steel mags. IE: It wouldn't take them at all without filing the mag latch.

Good rifle apart from that but I wouldn't touch the All American rifles or Chinese shotguns if you paid me.

hmmm......pretty sure this dude drew the attention to himself with his thread in the shotgun technical forum the other day that was just a link to a gunbroker listing that "in range inc" was selling.

Thread was something like:

Title - "such and such shotgun"

open thread, and text is along the lines of: Check this one out! ::::link to gunbroker listing::::

I've seen it written many times that you can pm a mod, make a new account, and never log into the old one.

If the join date is why he is upset, he needs to prioritize...

Great example of over the regulation on this site ... designed to increase income that has actually decreased it

Firearm people are freedom driven .... More freedom would = more profitable

I need to apologize for my previous comment. I had absolutely no reason to insult Tijuana Used Car Salesman.

We've done the "why doesn't DDI have to pay vendor fees" thing many times before, and this thread isn't about DDI.

There is a criteria that defines "advertising" here.

The OP's user name hits that criteria dead center.

Nalioth, what about adding your company name to your custom user title? I understand User Name and Signature but nothing is mentioned about user title, as long as your User Name and Signature is void of any company names or advertising. Is this allowed?

Gunco is dead because reasons beyond a decline in the gun industry. . More guns have been sold in the last 9 years than ever.
Poor management is poor management.

So the OP had his name here before the rules here changed?????

Really?

There is no moratorium on talking about anyone here.

If you'd read this thread, you've seen the OP has less than 7 posts per each of his years as a member here.

Broken down further, that's not even one post a month.


His decision to leave is not going to affect your seeing info on him here.

If he doesn't post often, as you point out, why was he hassled about "inc." in his username?

Have you read the Vendor policies? ( rhetorical )

If your company names is your username, whenever you post, you are advertising your company.

Just because ddi didn't have inc. After ddi doesn't mean it wasn't a company name and everyone knew exactly who and what it was.
Its still a company name. Just like "apex" "Atlantic" or "copes" or even just "inrange"

I understand the rule. ..but then ddi falls under said rule cause posting advertises "ddi" especially when most ppl leave off the inc. Or corp. Or whatever when referring to a company.

Just sayin..
