Political Threads - Back to the Old MCB Rules

Back at the old MCB, we have a rule. No political threads.

Personally, I think politics are the death of most good sites. That is why I always said, I would never have political threads.

Here... We were going to allow political threads of cordial discourse in the Bar and Grille section of the paid members. If you can't stand the heat, stay out of the thread.

Honestly, it's what I do. I just don't read them. I feel they add no real value to the site and don't bother reading them. People know where I stand and why, and I'd be happy to talk about it over a beer. Over the internet? I see no value.

So... It's time to give them all the boot.

So I'm going to bring back a ban on the political threads until after the election as, well, it's only a week away.

After that, we'll talk about adding them back in to a special section, or just outright keeping the ban on it.

You may post your thoughts on it below here, but my mind is made up. Consider them closed. Future political threads (on either side of the isle) will be locked and deleted.

We're here for paintball and for our other esoteric hobbies... Not for politics.


Thanks for reading.

Please lock them all now, and make the ban on new ones permanent. There are too many people here whom I would like to meet in the future without them hating me over some silly political thread.

esoteric hobbies... Why beat around the bush? Paintball guns, paintball girls, and the occasional VW

But I haven't heard enough about the upcoming U.S. election! We have barely begun to discuss this!

Look at this quote from CONSERVAPEDIA, The Trustworthy Encylopedia about Obama:

Quote:
Obama would become the first person having ties to a known terrorist to gain control over America's atom bombs.[5][6]
We must discuss this! THis could be of salient importance to the Paintball Community!

I will give infraction points to anyone that starts a thread. I'm even more tired than Painthappy on this one.

Good deal. We can come up with plenty of other dumb crap to argue about. Pump vs electro vs spool vs poppet, vs ................
