    I am a little confused after seeing some advertisements posted and someone asks what I feel is a legitimate question about the item someone has posted the sellers response is "TROLL". What is that all about we all would like a good deal or at least compare prices and we get called a TROLL ? I personally would refrain from buying the item because of the lack of sales etiquette but that is me . I have never gone into WalMart or Fred Meyer and asked for a price check and have the associate yell over the Public Announcement system "Price check we have a Troll here " I am not thin skinned it would just be nice if people were a little more respectful of one another .

    Can't we all just get along ?

    What is "WM or FM"?

    When I was in (the Marine Corps) "WM" stood for Woman Marine. Does it now stand for Female Marine?

    If so, why on earth would one ask them for a price check?

    I knew exactly what he meant. I just don't understand why everyone, not just the original poster sees the need to make things so damned hard to read.

    I was trying to point out this absurdity with absurdity.

    When I offered a description of a Lightweight (double action) Herstal "Hi-Power" when the owner wouldn't field asked questions by others, the owner responded "thanks for spamming my thread". He's been trying to sell it for about 14 months now.. and with no pictures or internet link when asked many, many times.
    People are still wondering what it actually is.
    Its been bumped more times than a pinball machine at a nymphomania symposium.
    anyway

    You have to understand this site has several misfit deviants on here that have no interest whatsoever in firearms or 2A issues.....they just want to cause problems and instigate fights and arguments in an attempt to get people frustrated and threads shut down.

    I like slapping trolls.. the sound their hollow heads make is very satisfying.

    As do I...Unfortunately, that reverberating noise that echoes when they're slapped is like a homing device for more of their kind to crawl out of the recesses and stage a coup.

    Not in any way...

    However there are those that arrive on the scene with a Napoleon complex who do a pretty good job of chopping their own heads off.

    Its like this: there are all varieties of members here. And, there is Diversity within the Moderators as well :D .... Within that, it creates a comfort zone for certain members, and DisComfort for other Members.

    If ~You~ question What That Means, ask yourself a few private questions....

    Am I really Not Thin Skinned??
    OR do I think I am thicker skinned than I really am??
    What does Simon99 mean by his posts????
    And Certaindeaf???? Can I "hear" what he is trying to say? (Sorry CD, I am deaf as well, and had to make a ~hearing impaired~ joke...)
    Why did TrailBoss answer like he did, in post #2?????

    and finally, do I consider TROLLS ~a dis-advantaged special needs~ Group??????

    If you were to read All of the Political Threads forum, and See how many are Closed, and have certain ~special dis-advantaged needs~ members in it, you could HEAR what has been offered as replies...

    No one but a TROLL likes (A troll) and I consider TROLLS, a tasty treat, if flame broiled...

    I've just gotten to the point I mumble something under my breath about the person and move on. I'm finally learning the old saying "You can't fix Stupid" is the truth.
