    If I was you guys I would be careful poking fun at the WARNING SYSTEM that EVERYONE was warned about.

    This Forum can have the “power cord” pulled on it VERY QUICKLY. So I would advise you all to cool it with threads like this.

    Let’s get back to what this Forum used to be like…a great learning center for archery and the people who enjoy it.

    PLEASE…..with a product like Mathews, I myself would like to see THEIR Forum kept at the level Managment expects and appreciates. Not “brought down” to the level of these “other” Forums.

    ENOUGH SAID!!!

    back in the day it would be a toss up between PSE pro staffer (Andy) Barefooter19, Kendall Allen or Rex, no doubt in my mind. :^O :^O[/quote:14bwb8ys]

    You mean Lex??? I miss ole Lex….[/quote:14bwb8ys]yea I mean Lex, been awhile.[/quote:14bwb8ys]

    I remember seein Lex on here a few months ago………yelling at someone :p , and Ya’ll can’t forget Waveone and VA Mountain Hunter…….whom I miss both, and I’m not ashamed to admit :cry:

    I think I saw Andy on AT and he’s still the same…..except he’s shooting Bowtechs now :whistle[/quote:14bwb8ys]

    ENOUGH SAID!!![/quote:q9wncbz1] I don’t understand it, this thread is very innocent in my opinion, just a bunch of people discussing things, some past, some present. If Mathews inc. wants to put in a warning system thats fine with me but come on can’t we even talk about it a little. If they shut it down or throw me off for talking innoocently about it on a talk forum it’s not my kind of place than anyway. ](*,)

    The reason why Chas got the first dinger (BTW, Congrats on some level are in order… 8-| ) is PA.Mat.Man has been conspicuously absent the last couple of days…

    The only thing I wonder about is the long term effect of this policy on this forum. There are a bunch of really good people on this forum that like to cut up rough, have an irreverent view on life, are not afraid to call a spade a spade, and would be the first[/i:15krldym] person to give you the shirt off of their back. They are now at risk of being pushed out.

    I know that we all agreed to the forum rules. I know that this is Mathews’ playground and we are graciously allowed to hang out here. It is Mathews’ site because they host it and run it. What makes the web site the best is the members that are here. We are a stronger forum when we are inclusive as opposed to exclusive.

    I guess what I am uncomfortable with is change and what feels like more regulation in my life. I have enough of that already. I’m saddened by this. I’m not going to “leave in protest” for that is silly. This is an on-line forum, not congress. I would like to have some serious discussion on this policy.

    BTW, It has taken me about 20 minutes to put this together as it is difficult to craft the words. (it could also be the lack of coffee, and I’m going to do something about that! ;) )

    I noticed Alan has been gone too, I think it was because of me, I sent him a PM apologizing if I did anything to upset him. Alan always seemed like a good guy, so I feel real bad if it is something that I caused.

    I don’t agree with the warning system, I think it is too extreme; because most of us can handle ourselves just fine, and when things do get out of hand, apologies are always in order afterwards. Maybe there is something I don’t know about…. :-B

    There is something I’m not clear on with the warnings. What is the time table? Is it a reasonable 3 warnings in 6 months or 3 warnings over the entire time you are here?

    Frankly, if it’s the latter, Mathews may as well pull the plug because I know most of us have overstepped 3 or more times in the 2 1/2 years this forum has been here. I know I’d have been banned

    What say you, mods? What is the time line?

    I got the Biggest Loser award…

    A fallen Angel…

    Remember when They removed all my dampeners?

    Yup, that was actually the real strike one.
    It proves to me, that I’m not a repected member here.

    Same sort of dig here..

    I think this three mark system, was created just for Me.
    to get me out of here.

    It worked,,,.

    Thanks Mathews, you’re still numero uno.

    I’m sending a letter, snail mail, to Mathew Mcpherson…

    Just for voicing my opinion and disgust to where it belongs,,,.

    I was told by the powers that be, the scenario is the latter of what you described. I was also told if I didn’t like it, I could leave. How’s that for reflecting well on Mathews? Yeah, right! Wonder how much revenue they might lose because of their inept handlings here?

    I’d wear that sucker(the strike) like a badge of honor! I’d revel in it and rub it intheir faces! If they want you off mak’em work for it! Maybe they should give strikes to people who are too thin skinned or don’t like the way someone else post things! You have one strike, that beats a dampener all to H#&%$!! I would ride this sucker for all it’s worth!! :thumbup

    I think that many folks are blowing this out of proportion. Personally, I have no problem with the warning system. Abide by the rules or go elsewhere. That goes for any and all of us.

    What is everyone afraid of? Think before you post. If you have second thoughts, well, maybe you should not post.

    One other thing. I admire anyone that will to stick to their values, morals, ethics, etc., no matter what the world thinks. :thumbup
    Kinda like practice what you preach. I have failed at that many times in my life and I am not proud of it.
