To answer the poll, you'll have to change the page skin to prosilver2 (or one or two other styles, but I know this one works).

Go to User Control Panel --> Board Preferences --> My Board Style --> select "prosilver2" in dropdown box, then Submit. The polls should all work for you then.

I hope you don't mind my chiming in on this. I voted "yes." The car kit threads, in particular, addresses a topic I think too few people think about. Despite my quibbles re: compatibility with other gear, I also thought the pistol belt thread was particularly good. It got me seriously thinking about adding a pistol/war/battle belt to my setup for training etc. As I'm sure you're aware, I've got a lot to learn about this stuff, and your topics have generally been a source of much good information.

I don't think this should be in Bushcraft but gotta head out. I will move it later. If the OP has an area in mind send me a PM.

Well if this is because someone said something about you not posting anything useful, tell them to take a long jump off a short pier.
Over a dry riverbed.

The gun and event posts are not of personal interest to me, but many of your other threads and posts have been very useful.
Thank you.

I vote NO! Your stuff sucks! I never read it. It's useless! You should cancel your membership. Delete all your posts. Curl up and...

Just kidding Murph!

You have authored many posts and threads that rock. Now if you could just knock of all the rest of your posts that are just variations of "I disapprove" then you'd truly become a cherished member of this community. ;-)

I am confused. I posted my original message back in 2010. Why is it showing that I posted it today? Something funny is going on here.

I editted the topic, and then bumped it. The bump shows on the last post (which was your's.)
