Western Rifle Shooters Association site has a simple comments policy:
Don't like it? Lump it.
That can be rather abrasive, to both host and hosted, but Concerned American has maintained it despite brobdingnagian reasons to swing a ban hammer, and for consistent altruism and principled reasons. But he hints none too subtly that things are coming to a close:
"Before WRSA turns into just another abandoned website, what else needs to be discussed?Dear CA,
And no, not tomorrow.
But sooner rather than later."
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you’re nowhere close to done, any more than the Patent Office needed to be closed in 1875 because “everything has already been invented.”
You have an unavoidable (within the constraints of posting at liberty) set of OCD trolls who just can’t help themselves and won’t take their meds, but in recent go arounds, I counted about a dozen and a half folks calling the Usual Suspects out for their cut-and-paste shitposting and general underbridge-dwelling behaviors. So even trolls can’t stop the signal, Mal.
As to what’s left to cover, we both know the woke fraction is outnumbered 20:1 by the new-to-the-game-yesterday fraction, and probably always will be.
One such info-bleg gem was a thread or two down:
“My wife and I have a 14 yo, 1 college grad, and in-laws at home and what I wish WRSA provided was more professional / expert advice for securing our home and being able to hold out until the zombie wave passes. How much food, water, alternate water options, guns, ammo, erecting (not the blue pill) a better home defense, etc… I hope WRSA will start a regular series on this, because there are millions of us that need this practical and critical information as we cannot “bug out” anywhere due to the family makeup.”
Norm Abram and Bob Vila by way of James Wesley ,Rawles?
You could go for days to weeks on that topic alone.
Rural version, suburban, and yes, even urban, for those too stuck to budge.
Start from the basement retreat or saferoom, work upward and outward room by room, to outer walls and doors, planters, landscaping, fenceline, and so on. In bite-sized chunks.
And have done before, and will need to do again. Like Walt Disney’s classics release schedule, your audience is new every several years, and as long as you (we) have been doing this, you’re probably on your second or third generation, overall.
You are John Connor at the end of T3, and your site is the CB.
What you do with it is your business, but beyond the OCD trolls, you still have quite the audience, the vast majority of whom just lurk here and observe. There are maybe 50-100 commenters out of 7K hits/day. And they come there because you’re not pimping anything for personal gain, and have no axe to grind except liberty and common sense. That’s incredibly rare on the net.
And you have a Who’s Who of solid content producers “in the trade” with rock-solid bona fides who read and post in Comments, and have had for some time.
I would argue that if you have the inclination and time, the candle there still has a lot of inches left on it.
Don’t let the turkeys get you down.
I say this in full (and grateful) acknowledgment of the symbiotic draw of readers here from there, and there from here, over the years.
