Aha...A solution of "liver of surphur" is used to color or add a patina to items made of copper.It's a condensate that used to be called "liver of sulphur" and usually occurs at high humidity levels. For some reason I notice it more in summer. With this knowledge and a buck-fifty you can get a good cup of coffee.
Seems like nearly every day posts appear referring to stuff contrary to Forum Rules pinned in the Forum Announcements & Support section. Often accompanied by "I know we're not supposed to talk about it here, but..."perhaps you are being a little precious?
Have you noticed, your post about the pin gun is still there so it should be obvious I do read the entire post and leave the things that apply to the subject at hand.Well,
To be honest, I am trying to understand Zonie's position..!
I am aware that this is a muzzle loading forum and that the focus of discussion should be about these firearms, however I do question the tone and intention of the policing style I have encountered from the moderators. It seems to me that there is a level of "triggering" (sorry!) going on that is generally unhelpful and irritating in what is normally a friendly and supportive community.
Whilst I fully understand that discussions regarding AR family modification and how many sights you can fit on a Pickatinny rail are not for this board, I really do find the "Miss Picky" comments to anything but 100% muzzleloading with little or no reference to the context or subject of the conversation to be somewhat wearing..
This is now the second time I have been picked up for "straying".. The first time I was discussing Damascus barrels, and put up a photo of one of my guns to illustrate a particular type of twist. The gun happened to be a breechloader, and I apologised for this when I posted it, however it was not the gun I was referring to, but the barrel, which was of a type commonly found on muzzle loading fowlers of the late 18th/ early 19th C.
My discussion on this thread was about sulphur deposition. I gave an example where this is a common occurrence, although normally only seen in a particular class of breech loader. It was in direct reply to a query from a muzzleloader and had nothing to do with breech loading per say..
Frankly, I think the moderators need to have a word with themselves.. I think their interventions, certainly in my case, have been overzealous and generally unhelpful. They seem to be just skimming the content looking for certain words, and do not seem to be bothering to examine the context.
Thank you for the various discussions I have had with board members, however this is the last you will hear from me..
