    I find that to be a totally acceptable and necessary policy. I know, from experience, how off-topic political and religious posts can totally get out of hand. It detracts from the purpose of the forum -- unless the purpose of the forum is politics and/or religion, of course.

    But this forum is for us to learn and to teach others about these awesome phones specifically, and the Android OS in general -- keeping the forums on-topic is a great idea.

    It's unfortunate, but there are sensitive topics that really will inflame some people (I freely admit to being one of those who can become inflamed under the right circumstances). Having a clearly-stated policy about topics of this nature is a very good idea.

    Thanks for posting this, and making the policy clear to everyone.

    Will they vote Republican or Democrat

    Believe in a G-D

    Be pro-choice or pro-life?

    there is freedom of speech here as long as we stay away from politics and religion. don't like it? I'm sorry, that's the way it has to be. we have less rules here than you do at most public gathering places, so we think one or two is fair.

    I'm a Navy vet so I feel at ease adding my 2cents.

    I'm all for freedom of speech. It is one of our last remaining freedoms. However, the rules of this forum, ask that certain subjects not be addressed in the forum. I agree! I read the forum seeking answers and hopeing to gain knowledge about my Droid. So, I prefer not to have to wade through information that is not pertinent to my Droid.

    If I want to read others opinions, on non Droid issues, I will look for a blog where they have all the freedom of speech one could ask for.
