and enforcing rules such as these in the "everything else" section?
Posting topics or threads which are based on politics, race, or religion is expressly forbidden.
Flamebaiting, flaming, being abusing, being disrepectful, trolling, spamming or posting to incite or annoy is not allowed. If you cannot make a positive contribution to the thread, then just stay out of it.
I've begun distancing myself from any boards that have political discussion, as it has nothing to do with the whole reason for the board to exist, inherently degenerates into a crap storm, begins taking up a lot of my time, and I end up getting nothing out of it except getting pissed.
I am proud that this time I had absolutely nothing to do with the latest thread being locked. LOL
