    The team here at DroidForums would like to take this opportunity, given that the State of the Union address is Wednesday, to remind everyone that we have a VERY strict policy on discussion of ALL things religiously or politically charged. It is not tolerated on this forum because it creates too much trouble among members. People get upset, start fights, etc.. It's just not pretty. For the sake of KEEPING this a friendly environment, as you ladies and gents have done so well, all discussion/comments/etc about religion or politics (even in the Off Topic forum) will be immediately deleted and repeat offenders will be temporarily banned. This is just to keep the peace.

    If you see any type of this discussion, please report it immediately. If there are any questions, please PM a mod or admin. Thank you for your understanding.

    The three things you never discuss to keep harmony are the 3 G's - God, Government and Guns. Good reminder.

    After lurking these boards for quite some time, I finally decided to make an acct. I am proud to be apart of one of the most mature forums I believe I have ever come across. Proud to be a member of such a grown-up forum.

    Excellent policy. There are plenty of places to go on the internet to discuss these topics. They don't need to appear in every forum.

    Agreed, I personally hate politics for the reasons stated in the OP glad it's not going to ruin the mood of the forum!

    I agree. I had to shutdown one of my forum sites because a member started something having to do with the president and that started a whole big thing.

    Nice policy!

    If he does, I will retract my OP because he will have then brought it upon himself. ;)

    Thanks for the understanding folks, I hope everyone gets it..
