Many years ago when I bought my first privately owned pistol I joined a gun forum to learn about the gun I had bought. They also had a lounge which posted about topics of the day or anything you wished. I realized soon that I was more liberal than most on the board. But in the past year or so the outright racism of many members began bothering me. I believe in freedom of speech but the posts in the past months have gone overboard to the point of many advocating racial war. Today I sent a message to the staff of that forum resigning my membership because I believe allowing such hatred filled posts encourages more of the same. I did want to be a member of such a forum. I know I changed nothing and I will miss reading the posts of many of the members, but it was something I needed to do.
