    That seems like a reasonable rule. Are we free to discuss how the Colts are gonna crush the Saints in two weeks?

    Very good policy, I think its important to discuss the 3 G's but this is not the place.

    right. i am a very opinionated person, so this is a tough policy for me to follow.. but it's the only way to keep this place sane.

    thanks again everybody for being understanding. :icon_ banana:

    Great post, it's a phone forum, not a political bullpen.

    The camping forum I have been on for years had to institute the no political talk rule after the 2004 election. What a huge fight that started. Normally sane people went nuts when others didn't agree with them, people were flaming, people were quitting - it was a bad scene. took a long time for things to calm down. And this was on a forum dedicated to a relaxing hobby.

    As a Moderator on another site BBQ Source Forums (Powered by Invision Power Board) I can completely agree with this policy. We do allow political discussions on our site, but I can vouch for some very inflammatory posts getting out of hand! That being said, we are a much smaller (relative to the membership here) and close knit group there, and to date we seem to be able to resolve most of the issues before the hatchets come out! ;)

    Knowing the size of this forum (volume of membership) I think I would totally agree with your 86 on political discussions. Here I'd prefer to not see All Hell break loose as is the potential given this subject matter. Yep! A nod of my head to this decision! :) cuskit

    I thought religious discussions weren't allowed ;)

    For the record, I think a couple of Droids would make awesome teleprompters! :motdroidhoriz:
