Are you surprised that they did that? We have considered it many times as well. People usually act like gentlemen in the other sub-forums, but here they often act like they're on the Jerry Springer Show and the staff is getting very tired of dealing with it.

Free speech means you have a Constitutional right to set up your very own Internet forum, pay for it and run it like it's your house. Right now you're in somebody else's.
Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.
