Default GON post participant's are leaving.

Do you think it's because of over moderation? My friends are turning to facebook groups. I like GON and I want to see it grow, but people are saying it is behind the times.

We live in a era where people can't stand to hear another opinion, so Facebook groups allow sissies to control what they hear, so as to not get their little feeling hurt.

I don't think over moderation is hurting the forum, it might make it tough on the ones who need to call people vulgar names around his buddies, but probably keeps the average guy coming.

They have been leaving since this place started. New people move in and take their place.

Forum members leave or get banded, and new people fill their shoes. Been that way since the beginning. The forum is bigger than one or two folks. My .02

I feel G is bit harsh of a rating. Considering over 100 of the channels on my TV are rated PG-13
But whatever

I like it the way it is.

My son can get on here, and I really don't have to worry about what he will see or read.

The rating is stiff but that is a small part of what makes this place unique.

Case in point ....... ^^^^

Been around her 11 years plus - this is only my 61st post in all that time. Why? Everyone here already knows it all. No use in my input.

Happy Holidays!

Places where people are expected to behave, never gets behind the times.

I agree, considering the infraction points never expire and 3 get you banned. Folks here for years slip up and get banned. At least give them a 12 month expiration.

It's not a slip that gets folks banned. I have more "you know better" emails than I do infractions. It takes way more than a slip.

I agree. You shouldn’t have to worry about a young outdoorsman getting on here to learn something and seeing some of the garbage you see on FB.

Here’s why I don’t mind the groups I’m a member of on FB. All are hunting related.

It reminds me of how this place use to be back in 03. Everybody was open to advice, no criticism, mature answers, and extremely friendly.

It is still here, but sort of rare. Everybody knows more than the next guy, advice seems to be brushed off more than listened to.

Just my observation.
