All these “hot” gun deals
Can they at least be moved into a separate category?

You're such a troll. I've asked you to report them.

Yeah, just like you complaining and flooding the front page with 5-6 different firearms threads.

An overwhelming number of people ( as evidenced by the number of downvotes these threads are getting) are opposed to the "deals" being posted. These threads should be moved to "off topic" as they are simply promoting a political viewpoint which is divisive and promoted by foreign gun lobbies. This is especially insensitive at this time after one of the most horrific gun violence crimes ever has been committed in Nova Scotia. * I believe the guns used in the Nova Scotia massacre were also all "legal".

Cop pulls over someone for speeding. Depending on how the driver of the car responds and history of the driver will dictate how the ticket is issued.6060842 wrote: ↑ Everyone has biases. There are those who are aware of their biases and those who aren't. It seems that posts are censored unevenly and standards are arbitrary. Someone may have their comment removed yet there could be a thousand examples of similarly "off topic" posts removed. Heck even in this thread there is a moderator who makes a personal attack, yet their posts is not removed.

This is a terrible “solution” and the thread is damn near unusable.TomRFD wrote: ↑ After much discussion, here's what we've decided to do.
Since the topic of guns is extremely controversial right now, especially so since the recent federal government banning, we've decided to temporarily move all new firearm deals to a megathread within the Ongoing Deal Discussion forum.
The decision to move them was based on multiple factors including but not limited to: negative behavior by both sides (pro-gun and anti-gun), Hot Deals being overrun with firearm threads, the huge amount of work created for our moderation staff caused by these controversial threads, and us not yet having the features to better manage these types of threads.
We very rarely block any type of deal but when it becomes a larger problem (e.g: coronavirus masks), we have no choice but to step in. Part of the reason we came to this temporary decision with firearms is because we don't want to have to block them. If things kept up as they did on Friday and Saturday, it's highly likely a decision would've been forced upon us by corporate to block them and then there'd be nothing the moderators, website staff, or myself could do about it.
I mentioned that this is only temporary because in Q3 we will be working on a new personalization/filtering project for Hot Deals. Once added to the site, members will then be able to customize what they want to see (or don't want to see) and there will be a filter available for firearms. At that time we'll be able to re-open the Hot Deals forum to the sharing of firearm deals.
