Why is the perfect line now all ATGATT and ABS

Front page tonite is 75% ATGATT or ABS threads.

More intelligent that the numpties that start these ATGATT threads thinking that people want to be told what to do.

Personally I am not into it..... ABS, ATGATT, MSF, CBT, ESC and all the rest; I have yet to experience any of them.

Enrolled in the School of Hard Knocks back in the '60s, alphabet soup wasn't on the menu, so I guess I never got the taste for it. I like mine pure and simple, spiced up a little.

Most were started long ago. I guess it made some noobie happy for a moment to bump them.

Had I investigated further I would have answered my own question...a whole forum hijack. Does ADV have thread Marshall's to deal with such shenanigans?

The most civilized fora I have ever been on have always encouraged bumping threads instead of starting new ones looking for the same info. It keeps the relevant discussions at hand so we don't have to go over the same stuff over and over (or we do, but it's all in one place so we can avoid it if we wish). Some, with active mods, go so far as to specifically merge new threads to the old ones that are the same topic.

So you join the forum and bump all the ATGATT threads?

Harass: 1. To irritate or torment persistently. 2. To wear out; exhaust.

The Big Rules: 1. Harassing, intimidating or threatening other members is a no go.

You are going to do as you like. I just hope the mods hurry up and ban you.
