After being a Patron for years I no longer see it as having any perks worth mentioning.Many of the highest posting members here liked to go into the Privacy of the Bar and Grill area and talk. We became great friends, know about each others Lives, Family's, business's, Health etc.......Only to be harassed by other members who have no sense of humor and very thin skin, as well as being complete hypocrites. So Thumper got us a Patron's only BnG, where we could stay and talk and mind our own business, paying for that privilege mind you. but even that wasn't good enough for some, including the Owner of this site and several senior staff members who have shunted us off into some little corner and treated us like second class Citizens here, All the While taking our money of course..
Now, it's Kneel's site and he can run it any way he chooses, but don't take our Money with one hand and stab us in the back with the other. That's Trashy behavior, both professionally and personally.
I loved this site for a long time and many people here have become great friends, helping through tough medical issues and what not. I have lost count of the number of people I have referred here and how glowingly I've talked about the Place. Not anymore. I guess Kneel wanted a more Family Friendly Site, more Gun/Shooting Driven. Well how do we explain the Explosion of just worthless babbling found on the Armory now? The site's a complete Mess,no one seems to be at the wheel any longer, Good Staff guys are no longer here and Posts are Way down because a bunch of us are fed up with it.
It's what kneel wanted, he got it........enjoy it.
