    Political discussion

    Ladies and Gentlemen,

    There is to be NO POLITICAL DISCUSSION on these forums of any kind, and at any time.

    A thread was started about Kiwi making comments regarding Rush Limbaugh potentially buying the Rams, and 2 days ago, a thread was started about Danny Clark being on Hannity's show, and both threads went on for several pages and were nothing but political talk.

    We have stressed this over and over again that politics and religion are subjects that will never be permitted to be discussed on these forums. It is strongly suggested that topics that fit into those decriptions are not posted here, because the thread starter will not be posting again afterwards.

    Consider this the one and only warning. We'd like to have a place for such things, but as history has proven, most folks(not just our posters, but people in general) are incapable of discussing those types of things without having the conversation get heated and out of control, and quite frankly, it's not worth the inevitable trouble.

    Please do your best to avoid starting such topics

    Thanks
    Mods

    I agree. OP should not be held accountable for the way a thread may evolve and change direction. Just delete it with no fan fair.

    I agree with bansaw on this. The OP was just reporting what Kiwanuka said. It then turned into politics. Sometimes it's just inevitable. It's not like someone is saying Vote for Mr. Magoo which is an obvious political statement. We tend to get caught up in discussions that stray over the line without anyone intentionally ignoring the rules. After all, we're a bunch of shut ins lol

    Wouldn't a perfect world be nice. But the reality is quite the opposite and I'm pretty sure the moderators delete posts for man reasons as part of what they do.

    Re: Political discussion

    the NFL has a prospective buyer of the Rams in Rush Limbaugh and we are not allowed to discuss it on an NFL teams website? NFL players show up on News channels and we are denied the right to discuss it on an NFL message board? I didnt know we lived in Venezuela..... Too funny.
