I voted, but I wonder who actually thinks that gun bans will mean criminals wont have guns.

I went there to vote just now and found out Don Knotts died. I loved him in Three's Company and remember watching him on reruns of the Andy Griffif show too.

I will vote as well.

+1

They will definitely pull the poll if they see too many referals from any given site.

Holy cow (not to disrupt this thread) but I was fortunate to meet him a few weeks ago. What a delightful man. R.I.P.

Now at 69% Looking better and better. If they tried to pull a SF on me down here I'd leave once and for all. Not just the city, probably the state.

Too bad for Don Knotts. He was a funny dude! I can always picture him fumbling for that one bullet he kept in his shirt pocket when Andy let him unholster his gun in Mayberry! hahahaha

BTW, the poll was still at 69% against when I just voted. Thanks to 50ae for finding that poll and posting it here! It is good to stay on top of those things.

Anyone want to take a bet on what percentage against a ban the poll will reach before they pull it, because it doesen't reflest their pinko opinion?

I'd vote, but I don't live in S Ca. and I don't run windows. I run Linux.

I don't have flash player installed (is it even available for linux?).

My opinion: I do NOT support any bans of ANY type. (strict constitutional interpretation ). My opinion: don't like the constitution, fine amend it, don't subvert it. Follow the rules just like everyone else.

does anyone know if the poll was a "just for curiosity" poll, or is this an idea being debated in LA county right now by the powers that be?

Wow, controversial.

Come on..We're talking about Channel 2 & 9. The only
thing they see as scientific is which side of a pc of
toilet paper is best to use.

But I admit I did vote yesterday..
I also apologize to anyone who works
at either station. I was just being sarcastic.
No harm meant.

Everyone was probably just clicking the link instead of cutting and pasting... so if they saw 4000+ hits from one site, there wouldn't be any reason to keep it up.

I am sorry, but this doesn't work this way. You if go to different location and click on the same link target computer will see different route.

Yes it does, anytime you click a link from a website, the target website has the ability to log the referring url.

I maintain our throwback of a website. Every web browser will send the referring site info to the new link you click. I can tell where the referral hit comes from, Calguns, Google, Yahoo, Gunbroker, etc. I can also tell what browser you are using and who your internet provider is. The webmaster can certainly tell what the referring website was that their page was linked from, unless you disable it.

If you use Firefox, you can disable it... Follow these steps.... Type "about:config" in the URL bar (without the quotation marks) find the value labeled "network.http.sendRefererHeader" and set that value to "0". Any time you click on a link, it will not send the referral URL to the site you are transferring to.

I hope it works. I just did it going thru ChromeEdit. It
popped up and I set from "2" to "0". Guess we'll see.
Thanks for the heads-up. I had no idea there were so
many options on FF.

Sorry bout getting off-topic.

It's probably just weekly polls on hot issues.

sorry for going OT, but i didn't want to start a new thread.

i disabled the referer header option and now calguns.net doesn't load like it used to. a lot of the little features and icons (such as the "go to last post" button or the "user is online/offline" dot) show up as plain text in firefox. i changed the value back to "2" and everything is peachy.

Yes, as long as you're running a 32-bit architecture and not a 64-bit. The flash player doesn't play nicely with 64-bit.

On my mac I get weird behavior, so I just reset it to "2". For example, I could no longer get the the icons for the forums - new post icon, go to first new post icon, go to last post icon; all I got were the text labels, supposed to be there when the image can't display (and thanks, Ramon, for being sure those are there!)

The reset fixed it.

Mozilla's knowledge base saysPossible values and their effects

0 Never send the Referer header.

1 Send the Referer header when clicking on a link.

2 Send the Referer header when clicking on a link or loading an image. (Default)

Caveats

* Disabling Referer headers may cause some functionality on some sites to no longer work. But at least it was an easy fix. Lots of interesting things in that 'about' page...
