Gee... here's one. Don't ban people for first time mistakes.
Posted a link to my sale in a thread that was specifically complaining about the lack of availability for the exact type of gun I was selling. Got banned for "spamming the entire forum with your sales ad". B.S.
A friendly email could have cleared that up easy. But Calguns mods aren't really into friendly or fair.
I tried to email asking what was up. Never heard back.
Open letter suggestion... BE NICE. BE FAIR. Treat others like you would like to be treated. Maybe that's too much to ask but thought I would throw it out there. I recommended a friend to join CG the other day... He said "ummm...I went there once, those people are kind of jerks".
It's hard to grow into California's premiere gun group when we have a rep for being people others don't like to hang around with.
