I'm apaulded that members of this forum are bullied into revealing their idenity when they have a right to privacy on this forum. Dane Burns is not the Moderator of this forum. It seems he thinks he is. Do yourself a favor, if you don't like a member posting check the handle before you click on it, if its someone you don't like go to the next post, save yourself and everyone else some greif, I'll return the same favor. If Burns has a problem with the way the Moderator runs the forum maybe he should get his own forum, than he can be the Moderator. There are alot of good pistolsmith that left this forum and will not post cuz of these attacks, I see why now. I was warned before hand about posting on this forum cuz of the flaming piss'n matchs, so I choose to remain anonymous to test the waters. Now Burns wants to trash someones name when he really don't know who the hell he's talking to, he may think he knows but he don't for sure, why he thinks he can take it upon himself to invade on someones pirvacy is beyond me. I think the Moderator should step in and remind him of the rules of the forum. Its beyond me why he thinks he has the liberty to trash a members rights. I do not know Dane Burns nor does he know me. When Burns talks of professionalism I consider the source, this is the guy that solicited his e-mail address to a Member wanting help selecting 1 of 3 pistolsmiths Novak, Heinie or CT brian, I think most would agree tacky and unprofessional at best. He has no room to judge me. I joined this forum to help out. I enjoy reading about the 1911. I know what it is to want, when I started out I had nothing, I worked up the nerve to call big name pistolsmiths for advice, from the answers I received I soon learned I was on my own. The forum is a good thing and a great learning tool but this one has a tough time keeping it clean. Let me get one thing straight: my business gains nothing by me pecking away at this computer. One reason I remain anonymous is cuz I don't wish to promote my business. Another reason I post anonymous is cuz I want you to read my post for its merits, not cuz the great name brand so-and-so wrote it, there's enough of that going around, I have a name on this forum, its "METALSMITH" and I stand by it. I had enough, case closed.
