Thread: on posting shtf topics will it get one banned?

  1. #1

    Default on posting shtf topics will it get one banned?

    before i get banned for posting nothing more than my views on shtf or articles pertaining to
    incidents that could effect the lives or wellbieing of fourm members just what is too much?
    concidering the times we live in today i feel it not wise at all to bury ones head in the sand
    reality bites for sure. and better the devil you know just saying so what is too much to say on
    these matters. could someone tell me?

    It's pretty easy. You can't discuss politics (except in the political forum) or religion. You can't bash a group or post hate mail, flame a member and you can't try to advertise on the site by posting links to a site you have an interest in or post anything illegal. That's about it. If you've looked at past posts you'll see there have been some pretty weird SHTF conversations. Truly weird. Weird to the point that only the poster believed it. Yet they didn't get banned.

    It's always nice to post supporting documentation. For example, if you think Zombies will rule the earth then some objective documentation that supports that theory is always nice. ZombiesRule.whatever is not an objective source but the CDC might be.

    The thing about the members here, is that if one posts some of the absurd crap that is the base of many "survivalist" forums you will be ridiculed to death!

    If one is into the SHTF/EOTWAWKI syndrome there are a host of forums one can go to where that is accepted, expected and promoted.

    Fewer now than in the past. Most of there membership found the world of video games where reality is totally suspended, at least until mom yells down the basement stairs that supper is ready.

    As we have often stated here, we are more into bushcrafting and homestead sustainability along with realistic preparations for urban and suburban dwellers to fend off real life situations until order is restored.

    You should not fear being banned for posting your thoughts as long as you follow the forum guidelines that Rick mentioned. There have been a handful of people that have been banned, not for posting their views on a topic, but rather their retaliation toward other members when their points of view were not agreed with and pretty much proven false or unsubstantiated.

    If you can handle the heat, then by all means stay in the kitchen and have at it. Just keep in mind that some might not share your point of view and are not bashful about letting you know.

    I'm still waiting for the zombie day of reckoning and I haven't been banned. It's more about being polite and following the forum rules, which are rather simple.

    Lots of good suggestion can come from those discussions...but then again a lot of weirdness as well.

    So when I need to go get my tinfoil hat...I usually bail....
    I said it before....But do believe I will run out of meds before food or ammo...so don't work about a SHTF unless it's local and effects me now......

    Alright!

    So how do we prepare for when Ted Gunderson rises from the grave as a zombie along with an army of trafficked souls and leads us all to hop in UFOs and spread chemtrails on the government that faked 9/11 because of the neo nazi alligators that live in the sewers had vested interest with the illuminati in peanut butter?

    Yep, really the CDC. It started as a joke a few years ago and now it actually helps their campaign to get people prepared.

    I caught the "might be" and knew you remembered the CDC's marketing campaign.
