OT Political posts

Since they are the biggest and most contentious battlegrounds, Dave and I have decided to ban political posts. That means no OT threads on political topics, and no posts mentioning political parties, candidates, government officials or actions, either directly, implied or by reference. Land-use issues are not off-topic, so are excepted.

Violators will be given a public warning. Repeat offenders will be banned.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.

So even this bbs has become a dictatorship?

This has been voted on time and time again and lost. Iíll find the polls for you if you want.

If you find they make it too hard to do your job as moderator, resign. You wanted the job so do it!

There are 10 kinds of people in the world.
Those who understand binary and those who don't.

Dave me.

And Taz...........don't like our little country.........well then LEAVE.
If not feel free to stay and do what you do best... Piss people off all while figuring out a way to not get banned.

It had to come to this because some posts (almost all political) were just trolling to get peoples blood boiling. This IS a jeep board and we still allow O/T posts. There is noting wrong with sharing a joke or airing out the days laundry.

And don't anyone forget that there is a board on here that you can post all of political posts you want. It's called general.


And last but not least........Taz feel free to pull some of your "higher up" strings and get us fired from this 6 digit paying job since it appears who's toes we've stepped on. Search all you want and post up the polls.....if your that bored. I don't care. Just be sure to label the posts O/T political polls so I can delete them easier.

BUY MY CUSTOM STICKERS!!!!!!

((good women are REALLY hard to find! She buys me Jeep parts, never complains when I buy guns, Jeep parts,
And she makes GREAT sausage gravy!)TR

Dave, taking the gloves off ???
Finally someone has some "stones" not to worry about being "politically correct". We need more of this. I too am tired of the USA bashing, and this may be a good way to put those topics behind us, and help one another for the real reason we are here.
JEEPS remember them?
BTW I have 6 now
Right on
