 I can say That a better man I do not know and for sure a dedicated man for our sport of airgunning and I am proud to call him my friend and will stand with him for our forum. A lot of people do not know that my buddy takes a lot of this unfair criticism personally and it is unfounded to say the least.   David

I have been an admin on a small forum for 4-5 years now and it can be a lot to handle at times, I can't even imagine the amount of work that goes into taking care of the number of members we have here. Props to you Dave and the GTA administrative crew for doing a stand up job!

I have also been through a few forum "fallouts", I will not go into details as we all know that the internet is an ugly place and there are some places that use moderative action to cover up what they do with generated funds. I am pleased to say that I do not see that here. In every forum you will find folks that feel that they are better than or are more knowledgable than some members because of their post count. I am thankful that there is not a lot of that going on here and it is nice to see new members being treated fairly!

Again thank you for your hard work Dave and the GTA Admin Team! 8)

Dave , David and the rest of the Admin staff are top notch and DEz deserves nothing but praise and the Rocker1's hammer is used only when needed . If it weren't for you guy's support I would not have considered taking on the role of moderator. DEz although a thicker skin would help you then you would not be the leader that you are and I'm sure that all of us on the team support you 200%

MANY thanks for all of the comments. The GTA family and staff are outstanding. My intent was to post a rebuttal for the junk that was posted elsewhere. I will not revisit the site, I will do as suggested and stay where I belong. :)
There's really no better place and no reason for me to go elsewhere. I do need thicker skin so to not allow such trash to bother me.
Again, thanks to all that make and keep our home here the best on the internet!!!
Now back to more important, enjoyable and productive chores.

Dave, you guys do a FANTASTIC job. I have learned a tremendous amount from many in the family. I also try to share what little knowledge I have gained.
Now, if someone gets their feelings hurt and wants to leave because they have been reminded of the rules, or had a post moved, I say See ya, wouldn't wanna be ya!! Don't let the screen door hit you where the Good Lord split you!!!
There are times when we all get rubbed the wrong way, no need to whine and quit. Put your big girl drawers on, Nancy!!! If a thread angers you, stop reading it. If you don't like a certain brand or type, don't read those threads! There is too much knowledge and fun here to stay away. I have never met any of the people here and STILL feel as though they are all family (yes, Joe P., even you, Yankee). Thanks, Dave
My side of the rant is over.

DEz I'm proud to stand with you and the rest of the staff of the GTA Family. Thanks for the opportunity to serve. Being able to do so has helped me recover from a terrible time not so long ago. Thank you Dave and all the staff.
