I had been making some mistakes while using the site, and one of the mod's pm's me and asked for a phone #
and called me at home and explained some important features about some things that have really helped me with the site. I think you guys are great.

I've got a new suggestion. Along with the "No zombie" threads, can we institute a "No Preppers/SHTF" cenario(sp?) threads. We have been told over and over this is a site to discuss military vehicles NOT a preppers site. Theres plenty of sites for that. I was at my wifes belated (very) Christmas party at her boss's house and got drug into an "are you preparing for WWIII or prepping for the end of the world" discussion because of my trucks. I had to politely tell them "no, they are just something to tinker with in my free time". The general public is really begining to see anyone with a MV as a "prepper" thanks to the media lately.

I don't have a problem with the "bug out" threads but do we need so many? I think there are at least 3 going on right now.

The whole idea of a stereotype is to simplify. People with small minds use stereotypes in an attempt to make sense of the vastly complex and intricate world that we all live in. Do you feel the need to educate the feeble minded or should you let sleeping dogs lye?

I agree with KS, if we can't have Zombie threads then there should be no Bug Out or Prepper threads as well.. They are kind of in the same ballpark anyway.. Neither bother me in any way but why just single out Zombies? They were once people too! ha ha..

I agree with you that one bug out thread is plenty. But this strikes me as funny

"but do we need so many?"

That's like asking a green iron addict why he needs so many trucks or a gun guy why he needs so many guns :wink:

One bug out thread is useful but people starting them whilly nilly is just annoying. Just like all the other threads that get started without the search feature :-D

I'll be quite honest, after the first few pages of the "Bug Out" thread I started, it became very perverted from what I started. Anyone notice I never view it? If it weren't for the crap storm, I'd delete it. The intention was to see if folks had planned for a natural disaster. How are you going to move your junk? ZiggyO put a plan into place that worked. Somehow it morphed into something I don't recognize. I would be all for eliminating all of the zombie and bug out threads and just talk Military Vehicles. Someone should start a green iron zombie bugout gun forum for political hacks and global warming /cooling debaters so that we could talk MVs exclusively again. I would be all for going back to a benevolent dictatorship where distatseful stuff just got dumped with no recourse. Distasteful to who? The dictator! Political correctness is hurting this fabulous forum. :rant:

Kenny, I agree with you on the zombie front, Personally I would slap the idiot who ever came up with the Zombie idea in Hollywood anyway. The living dead, ha. OH to keep it in a MV forum I would run them all down twice with any MV then do it again with pictures...!

IMHO Marcel, Deuceaid,Storeman, A/C Cages, Chappy, Rustsleeps, Unclemickey, MKT Mike amongst others have kept it on track. If you look at the stats for the past year of your threads existence it has done very well. I am guilty of being off track now and then but I guess thats how a conversation goes sometimes.

So what are you going to do....? Your a MOD and it's your thread...?:popcorn:
