I just wanted to be sure that you were aware of things like our legal position and explain why several people jumped on your when you said that it would be good to go public or to involve police in our age-verification system. As you can see, while at first thought, it doesn't seem to be a bad idea, once you look below the surface a bit, you realize it's not a good idea at all, and one to be avoided as much as possible.

And also, some people have no idea of the game of airsoft, and see these guns as nothing more than things to shoot recreationally with. I wanted to make sure that you understood that as well, and it seems that you do.

That being said, I'm a noob at this too. I started getting into airsoft last September (after 20 years of collecting and recreationally shooting other air guns). I've yet to participate in a game myself. But I am trying to make myself as useful a part of this community as I can, and plan on participating in as many games as possible this year. Hope that you can do the same.

So welcome to our little corner of the Internet. Sorry that your first experience was a bit rough. Many noobs get it like that, unfortunately. You just happened to hit some really sensitive topics with some of your posts and that tends to get people jumping on you, particularly if you're new.

Something obvious popped to my mind when you mentioned getting age-verified by the police:

Age-Verification allows us to Buy and Sell airsoft.

Buying and Selling airsoft is technically illegal.

We go see the police so they approve we are of age to perform illegal actions.

I think that's a reason good enough why it wouldn't work.

Once you're age-verified things should be much smoother for you on here.

Dear rustysdream,

You have received an infraction at Airsoft Canada.

http://www.airsoftcanada.com/showthread.php?p=622861

Reason: Insulted Other Member(s) - Play nice or shut up.
-------
Want to call me a moron more often you visit here will be really short.

I've been in this sport a lot longer then you have, so get a clue bud.
-------

This infraction is worth 1 point(s) and may result in restricted access until it expires. Serious infractions will never expire.

All the best,
Airsoft Canada"


My answer to BloodSport:
"Who gives a shit.
First you insulted me by sending me to Legoland and then called me 2 years old.
Remember, MORON?"

BTW, this is what I was referring to:

"Okay since you like to debate put it this way Rusty.

1) ASC is our house, therefore our Rules apply
2) If you cannot be bothered to follow our rules, then please kindly stop visiting and go to www.lego.com they have some free games for you to play that are fun.
3) No one was threatening, they were explaining our rules. Please respect that, we get 100's of people on here who do not. Don't agree with that then tough.
4) Who gives a shit how old you say you are, till you meet up with one of our designated Age Verification reps in person to gain access to our buy/sell sections for all we care you are 2.
5) I am in a position to say this as I am an age verification rep, and one of the moderators for this site.
BloodSport"

Don't moderate like a moron and you won't be called a moron.

Dude, just let it go! Or do you really want a ban? Pressing a tense issue with a mod is really begging to be eliminated from the site...

Holy eff.. This is getting a bit out of hand.

Rusty,
You should just let it slide like water off a ducks back man. I see your point of view, I'm sure everyone knows where you're coming from. But I also recognize the moderators point of view, they work hard here and they don't get payed for it.

Just try to remember that being a mod can get on your nerves. Making it tougher for the mods isn't going to help you one bit. In the end you'll just end up banned from the site and all of our great information.

Welcome, and may your future visits be helpful

Guys,

Did you read and understand his comment?
Is that how a moderator should talk to the members?
Banning me solves nothing. Apology would be accepted.

We've read it and I myself certainly agrees with it. I think Aqua was rude, but he wasn't threatening. The rules are the rules, either follow them or leave, that's just being straightforward. We're not giving you any special treatment nor are we especially persecuting you.

I think you owe BloodSport an apology for calling him a moron. If you can't take his Lego comment in stride, you must have an awefully thin skin and/or short fuse.

It's clear that BloodSport insulted me first. I didn't even react right away!

I expect him to stand up and apologize like a man.

Jimski,

Do yourself a favor and scroll back. "Who gives a shit" comes from him first.

So long, guys. I'm leaving on my own.

BloodSport, if you're feeling's hurt, you can always turn to your lover. HE will understand.
