Howdy gents,

Is there a Facebook page for our forum? if so could you please provide me with the link to this page?

If there isn't how would our founding fathers feel about having a GD forum on FB linked to the forum here?

Not everyone understands what we are about.

We may be opening ourselves on Facebook to neo Nazi types.

Always looking for Eickhorns and etched bayonets.

I agree with you John. That's certainly not the audience that we want in our ranks.

hi panzerfaust
hi john z we defenitly dont want any thing to do with face book as we are collectors of this ww2 history i wouldnt worry about skin heads or any outher nazi groups around. i would keep our eyes on the people who dislike us for collecting this ww2 german history and who are the biggest hipacrits and buyers of this so called evil history we collect. why because there is money involved greed thats thier goal sure wish some of them had the nerve to approach me or any one of us guys and tell us what we should collect but this all ways goes on deaf ears every once in a blue moon one of them will try and insult us after they meet me with the history of hemselves they leave with thier tail beteen thier butt. i will collect what i want and never what they want thanks god bless you guys and god bless out great country america

I doubt if there would be a problem with extremists, soon as they start expressing it they would be purged. They are no doubt aware they have to keep their hate in check in most forums, and if they come into any collectors forum sieg heil'ing or name themself HitlerTwin88 they would be booted in record time..
Bigger problem would probably be the anti-Nazis & spammers, though not being a facebook user [nor shall I ever be], I don't have a good grasp on how these links work.

I agree, no place for it and to heck with facebook. Having said that I am continually disappointed by the KKK items I continually see on some tables at the Max and SOS. Saw some at Max again this year...disgusting. I can not believe that either of the two Toms would allow such garbage to taint an already misunderstood hobby. I guess someone can stretch the collecting of 3rd Reich into being similar but I don't draw or accept comparisons cheers, Ryan

Thats a tough one Ryan, I guess as with most other things, the all mighty $$ prevails.
I agree selling KKK merchandise at militaria shows is a taint, but on the other hand does not necessarily imply that someone interested in one or both is a supremacist. I never owned any historical KKK stuff but would not discount the possibility, I am into all things historical. I had a small collection of some discriminatory items, such as tokens from the 1920's with an advertisement with the caveat "no negroes allowed" ect.

I was born in 1969 well into the civil rights area, it is mind boggling to know things like this used to be routine, so far from me owning some of these items as a reminder of the good old days, they remind me that in a different time the norm was far different than it is now. I have heard that blacks themselves are a major part of the collecting base of anti negro era items, just as Jews often collect Nazi items, so it is impossible to generalize about the motivations of collectors, no doubt they range in spectrum from bad to good, with most somewhere in between.

Too, since none of these items are allowed to be sold on ebay, and since no doubt the collecting base is not large enough for a stand alone show, it would make sense that buyers and sellers of this merchandise tag along at TR themed shows.

Wow,, KKK isn't ok to collect but SS is fine? confused Hhmmm.. I don't collect KKK stuff.
But I have a friend that hits the SOS/MAX and IF he can see the uniform , or whatever is older than 1970 he'll get it. OK, lets let it be,,to each his own..

The Facebook thing?? Hell no! Just last week a few guys tried tieing the Honor Ring forum somehow on to their Facebook page , or something to that effect,, anyway. Within a few days they were fighting and banning each other on Facebook and it spilled on to the ring forum! IF any of you are Moderators you can see the topic I moved to the Violation forum. Those that aren't,,,it was childish ********!

Seems to me the more you involve your life with this Facebook the more you lose it and trouble starts to appear.. I don't know,,maybe its a generational thing.. It's not for me,,,and not on the HR forum!

I have never seen more people get offended and butthurt than on facebook, for it being labeled "social media" can seem anything but.

Not going to cast judgement on anyone, personally I'd feel like a teen girl getting involved with that, never have never will. Plus I cannot stand that Suckenberg guy, I won't put a single cent into his pocket if I can help it.
