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.
When ASC was mentionned, the reporter cited necro when he wrote "when I'll be 18, I'll have real steel, not plastic guns", and the reporter said ASC was a Paintball Gun site. So at least, he did understand ASC (and airsoft) was not of a dangerous nature.

I agree. You never know who could be reading, and how a harmless statement can easily be taken completely out of context. Overall, I think ASC is a very responsible bunch and it deserves a lot of credit for making an effort towards policing itself.

Investigators with the SQ's anti-terrorist unit first learned of Émard during routine surveillance on the internet.

They uncovered a string of chat messages on various websites — which police won't name — that contained alarming messages, alleged SQ spokesman Jayson Gauthier




I found that interesting.

Thats exactly it, he referred airsoft canada as a site for "paintball". I'm guessing he didnt know a word for airsoft?

ASC has a head on it's shoulders unlike some sites on the internet.

Read between the lines, folks.

"Necro99"'s home PC wasn't analysed by the media. CBC certainly didn't do a forensic workup of his PC, sift through his cache files or rebuild his history to build a profile. They simply did a search on his screen name and traced him around the internet.

Think carefully about what you've posted, where, under the name you're using, and what that dirty baggage can do to others through association.

Secondly, before you post any photos of anyone OTHER than yourself, or when others are in the photo, please make sure you have their permission to post it.

Third, basement commando's and homeboy poses have no place in these galleries in my opinion.

I like it how the used thread has a title "Airsoft Guns Sales Go 18+".

And the media is notorious for doing this.

Yup, if you google his screenname a shitload of forums come up from everything to conspiracy websites to super columbine massacre. It's quite easy to track people down this way seeing alot use the same forum name for absolutly everything.

So, if Droc or Bruce yell "*****!" on here, they might be linked to the Gay Pride forums, like the ones Apoc frequents?

Morbius' comment is worth reading over: you SHOULD be careful what you post on the internet, or at least be aware you are posting it in a public place.

This shouldn't mean you should feel constrained in what you do, but you should consider the implications of your words when anyone can read them for free. That being said, I have a strong distaste for limiting freedom of expression because someone is worried about what 1% of the population MIGHT think about what you have to say. Post conscientously: talk among friends with your friends; when you're in public, try and act like it.




That being said, I am quite content with that news item. It shows that the 18+ policy kept a neo-nazi asshole from buying guns off these boards. That is an unmitigated success in my opinion.

Agreed. Even though I like to make fun of things, and even go as low as to help noobs with their dumb questions when others just want to flame, I still keep my moderate composure to not even think about suggesting violence or anything else on here that might affect me or any of you. Then again, I'm almost 35 years old, so it's not that difficult. And beer helps a lot too. :cheers:

I AM proud that we do as well as we do around here by keeping the 'feces aggitators' in check, and our exposure so far has been very small and in this case, relatively minute (french word meaning miniature for those west of Ottawa) and showing our organization gets rid of unwanted idtios before they actually make the news and point it right back at the rest of us.
