no... I'd say that is just another emotional rant and that you still refuse to support your position with any facts and/or validate your personal attacks with any justified purpose.. 1) I personally value negative feedback as much or more than I do positive feedback. Opposing positions are what make us think and what forces someone to actually consider other options or vantage points. That said, opinions without any substantiation of fact provide very little value to a rational discussion, and replicate the "feeling" argument that hunters often encounter with "antis". I wouldnt expect emotion based arguments to ever do well on AH. 2) I dont believe anyone ever said "smaller the caliber, the more effective". This again is an emotional response unsupported by fact. 3) There have been numerous examples of people and companies being openly criticized by members here. I have seen the owner and the moderator of this forum openly encourage members to provide honest feedback when they disagree about something, or had a negative hunting experience, etc. What I have also witnessed in almost every case where negative feedback or a strong counter argument has been placed is the owner/moderator/long time membership seek both sides of the story, offer both parties a chance to present the "facts" as they see them, and then let the chips fall where they may. As stated before, what I see in your posts is a whole lot of emotion, supported by no factual information. Dont get upset that no one appears to care much for what you have to say. Support your thoughts with facts, and you might be surprised. My guess is people would be willing to further engage you on the subject and actually consider whether your opinion is of any value. Until you make a fact based argument rather than an emotional one, I wouldnt expect people here to care much about your opinion, no matter whether it is aligned with theirs or opposed.
