Everyone has had their say for the most part. It's time to move forward. Out of all of this, two people quit as members (one of which I was hoping for), I only had to remove one person (it was a long time coming), and we've had over 30 new people sign up in the last two days. I'm not asking anyone else to leave now, let's just move forward. I know who our loyal Hangouters are and who are just members. At the end of the day, if you don't break any rules, and you are respectful, you are welcome here regardless.

I've never met Tony, or Chris, but I know one thing and that is Tony is a soldier. Now, I'm not just referring to title, because when you make a career out of it, it becomes a mindset and a lifestyle. Its hard for me to get upset when Tony gets defensive and not because of what he has done for his country and the rest of it, but because I know how different the mindset is from a civilians. People who are sworn to protect have a tendency to be defensive, and perhaps even a little paranoid, as this is how you survive. If you attack a soldier, you should expect to be met with equal or excessive force and while it may not seem fair, as I said before its a mindset that is necessary for survival and its not easily turned off like a light switch. I would just advise people to put all the petty nonsense away and lets get back to what makes this place great. Not everyone has to get along, but everyone has to respect the rules and just like in real life, if you don't respect the rules (laws) then you get yourself jammed up.
