This needs to be addressed in the MarketPlace and probably made into a rule. There should be a time limit on how long your posting can stay active. If there is no activity from the user themselves on their listing for more than 120 hours, then that listing should be remove. This would help with all the clutter of listing that are being bumped up to the page 1, with no actual activity from OP since over 14+ days. If a user will be out of town, then it should be noted on post 1 for that listing.

Recently several threads on a certain type of gun have been censored. Now I can understand you might want to censor some threads some of the time for specific reason. This is a gun forum, and talking about guns and the legal aspects surrounding those guns is an essential part of the discussion.

I think you could improve by letting people know what the issue is, are you being forced to censor, or are you censoring because the subject was uncomfortable in some way. Instead of silently censoring threads, just let people know what the issues are. Publish cease and desist requests for example.

If you want specifics on the thread ping me privately, I don't want this thread getting censored.

I second abinsinia’s comment. How about a little transparency here? Sure, it’s your forum and you can do what you want with it, but this is a forum dedicated to discussions about gun rights in California. Why are you censoring discussion about a gun made specifically for California? What is this, communist China? You may have a good reason which is fine, but the members of the forum deserve to know why.

I'm pretty sure I know which topic you are referring to.

I was asked directly by the party involved's legal counsel to remove those threads for the time being.

I wasn't told why and didn't ask, I'm not the client, however our long history with this law office and their history of successes means I trust they have a good reason.

Calguns is read by DoJ and others and we do not want to be responsible for causing things to go awry.

So anything related to certain types of firearms will be censored, even if this legal council or client is/are not involved ? If you name the firearm in question then you also get censored?

Are the original threads coming back or gone forever ?

When legal counsel FOR THE PARTY INVOLVED says it will do no harm to this effort the threads will be restored.

I'm assuming from what you have said that anyone who mentions anything related to the mystery topic will get censored.

Post what you want and see what happens.

Unless you really overdo it, the worst you will get is a deleted thread and a temp. ban.

Proposing illegal acts such as booby-trapping your home will get deleted quickly enough, just be cautious in your wording.

There are no First Amendment rights here.

Be excellent to each other. Party on dudes.

With everything in this state going up to ridiculous prices in comparison to our neighboring states, it is maybe time that individuals begin to make their sentiments heard and felt. And I would be MYOB, but I've had friends made such purchases only to see them reach more into their pockets to make up for state compliant magazines or some other bull reason.

Then again we have listings in this marketplace, where people are being ridiculed for setting a high price for a gun that is roster approved, but is a different frame color that is hard to come by. Yet, we don't see that when other users post these off roster handguns with the premium and they state that they will not come with magazines unless the buyer is LEO, well, LEO wouldn't be buying your premium taxed handgun because they themselves are privileged to purchase it on their own for way cheaper.

I'm not against a free market, but it would be more understandable and reasonable if the premiums were maybe a very low few hundreds. Not twice the MSRP for a used handgun that will not include any magazines.
I'd say get used to it.

If you're on a discussion forum with a decent for sale section, thread crapping will get you banned, for a bit or for a while. I'd count decent forums on ar15.com, the FAL Files, and Calguns, to a degree. Put yourself in the seller's place...you see more than a few comments noting that the gun sucks, is the wrong color, is too much money, you name it. How do you feel? Far better to stfu.

Here's arfcom's policy on thread craping...

"Absolutely no stomping on other peoples' posts! Do not remark in any way that would negatively impact the sale of someone's merchandise. Do not post comments, opinions or make low-ball offers in threads. This can result in your account being locked for 72 hours."

I don't understand why removing price history is allowed. I've seen some say it's no one's business what someone paid...stupid, as prices are required in the for sale ad, and it's a public forum.

I like arfcom's rule on that...

"Do not delete ad text, including prices, or subject lines. Doing so may result in a temporary suspension from the site. Leaving the subject lines and prices intact allows others to search items out and gauge current market value."

Seems reasonable and logical to me.

It isn't money.

Some bits of this installation are custom, and would have to be redone - if that's even possible.

Itrader seems not to have been ported up, at least in a way that preserves history.

It's a legacy system here, and choices on what pain and how much can be tolerated in changing versions or even the whole software used are difficult.

Kestryll has a thread on the issue someplace ... ah, here - http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s....php?t=1440092 from April of 2018
