Not a Tango, nothing to see here

Beware of what you do… or don’t do.

A few moons ago, in June of 2011, a blog named GunMart (which I will not link) posted a picture with a caption that was offensive to the subject.  Not only that, but the picture was copyrighted by the subject.  While it was legal for him to copy the image, he broke Wheaton’s Law by refusing to remove the picture or the caption.  The subject was Breda of The Breda Fallacy and was pornographic in nature.

The gun community didn’t take it lightly.  The internet also never forgets.

We’re fiercely loyal.  We like to stick up for our friends and help them out when they’re down and being kicked.  Fast forward 7 months.  TODAY!  RomeoTangoBravo helped a fellow gun nut out.  This gun nut was interested in winning a contest.  To win it, he was asking to help his friend out by clicking ‘Like’ on his entry.

Too bad his friend is from GunMart.

I posted fairly quickly something to the effect of this:

Is this the same GunMart of breda fame?
No thanks.

I apologize, but I did not think it would be deleted, so I didn’t get a screenshot of it.  It didn’t take long for it to be deleted.  I wasn’t sure what to say.  No reasoning behind it, but my comment was not deleted.  The rest of the comments remained, however.  They’re below.

I kept an eye on the post and when I checked it out after dinner…

At first thought, I figured he was just trying to save face.  Now, I’m going to give RomeoTangoBravo the benefit of the doubt.  It looks like he’s agreeing with the sentiment that GunMart doesn’t deserve the help he was giving him.  I hope that is true since I’ve enjoyed the RTB blog in the past!

GunMart, the internet never forgets and neither does the community.

Edit: I want to point out that I’m NOT bashing RomeoTangoBravo.  On the contrary, this is a post giving thanks and recognition for doing the right thing.
