We are in North Americia not Europe we have to comply by North Americian Standards ANSI / CSA etc

You said my posts are childish and makes no sense. Please PM me the ones where I have confused or irritated you so I don't repeat my mistakes in the future.
You offered airsoft eye protection advice without ever being to an airsoft game in Canada. Although there is nothing wrong with providing information to others your post is full of misinformation. First of all even if the goggle lenses are ballistic rated the frame is certainty not. If the frame fails due to impact from a high speed projectile the lenses will not be in place to protect the eyes. If someone actually followed your advice and bought the goggles just to be ejected from a field are you willing to be known as the guy that gives wrong information or doesn't know what he/she is doing. Just a word of advice if you want to play at paintball fields you will require Paintball goggles due to insurance purposes.

Again, I'm new to airsoft, so I have lots to learn. I'm trying the best I can, but if I'm not learning fast enough, there's no reason for you to get mad at me. Even if I was stupid enough to recommend goggles that weren't rated for safety, you should not have used emotionally charged words such as "smarten up", "post less", "childish". On the other hand, if you patiently point out my mistakes, it would not only clear things up right from the get go so I won't repeat them, it would also help me learn.

I was told when I started airsoft to post less read/ play more. Everytime you make threads without proper research people associate me with you for some reason and bring it into my attention. I don't know if it's because we are both doing PLA loadouts. I will not bring up the post which I think are childish and need more thought because I do not want to turn this into a personal attack.

After all, if I don't post my mistaken views that other people can rectify, I would never learn.

Lets both approach this from a mature manner =P

Edit: I hope I don't come of as angry or anything, just not in a good mood today with deadlines tomrrow
I have tried to rectify your mistakes before only to be totally ignored. If you want to speak but do not want to listen there is no way you can learn. Good luck with the deadlines tomorrow I know all nighters suck

If you are coming by the Toronto airsoft convention I will be happy to answer any questions you may have about airsoft.
