This is what I have on my msn space. I beleive it serves good reason, as some people choose to only look at something and then ASSUME.

Most of what you'll see are my Airsoft guns in which I've owned or currently owned.


The Airsoft guns I own(ed) are in no way modifyable to fire live ammunition, so dont be going all "OMG GUNS!!!" on me.

plz tell me this is a sick joke.

i think ASC should go lock down. the only people that can even get on the site are people that are registered as of now to save our own asses.

Doing a lock down right now would only show that we have something to hide.

It actually shows that we are quite responsible and that Necro99 is a real idiot.

Who knows, might actually goes in our favor in the long run, i hope.

I hope so too. Media and soocer mom's tend to find the worst out of any things they can put their hands on.


This guys was a real nazi from what I can see.


What is our world comming too. I dont know. But could we just be left alone and continue to have good games.

I beg to differ, if we want to survive we shouldn't act like we are tring to hide in light of this recent event. To block out nonmembers would equate to the "Something to hide principal." We don't have a reason to hide. We do not engage in illeagal activities. While the acts of that particular idiot reflect poorly on us, we should be showing that we are not like him. We can't do that by hiding.

Well I was on the fence about changing the gallery to 18+ up until now, but it'll be less work to moderate if it's age-restricted!


Locking down the entire community because of one neo-nazi teen angst douchebag asshole is not on my to do list, however.

It's not like the people encourage this kind of behaviour, in fact, most members here are strongly against it. We got nothing to hide here.

well, as I said in the past, regardless of how many posts a guy has on ASC, even if we have banned him...we all know how the world reacted to vampirefreaks.com
I think a disclaimer, a really, really big one should be on the front page.

As I said in some other thread, we got some pics in our gallery that can easily draw a bad reaction from. Personally, I liked the idea of ASC going +18, especially our gallery. But really, I honestly think a bit of housecleaning should be done. The chairsofting pics and alot of the posing pics should be removed IMHO.

my concern is some of our threads.
Im gonna quick refrence this one http://www.airsoftcanada.com/showthread.php?t=29357
No, just as an example, im gonna use the posts in this thread. posters, dont take any offence.

rather tame, but really, thats all the media needs to label our entire community a bunch of vigilante potential Kimveer Gills. If you run a search, we got plenty of topics that get incredibly nasty. Alot of the war on terror threads express alot of racism towards muslims, and many thread end up in post after post discussing torture punnishments for criminals.

Joking or not, we REALLY gotta watch our attitudes in our forums.



I said alot of stuff here http://www.airsoftcanada.com/showthr...t=Kimveer+Gill
but I really think we should start taking steps.

I dont think its the end of the world/airsoft, but I do think its time that we really start to make some changes. Personally, Id make ASC +18, gallery included. Clean the gallery of anything unpleasent.

I am perfectly content with ASC being described as an amateur paintball site where we frown upon douchebags like that (while that wasn't implied in the news video, anyone looking further would get that impression pretty quickly).

That's a very interesting video, ASC is just mentioned as one of many sites this kid visited, and his posting were the issue, not the content of our site.

To those advocating the 'run and hide' theory, have you really thought it through?

Why not just write a single letter, or email, to whomever it is that you're so afraid of, and calmly and intelligently state your position to them?
