Default Can we start up a Soapbox forum as well as Off Topic

Hello mods and others

While I love being entertained by one or two of our more politically vociferous members , I wonder if we can have another forum section titled soapbox where those guys can thrash out their differences?

Then again , I could always just not open their posts

When forum owner Internet Brands setup a US Politics forum, I'm going to sign up on it and rant about Jaguars.

I Don't open their posts! Or even their threads!
Life is much simpler that way.

Lol Peter, I'm with Graham on this one.
You can of course choose to add them to your ignore list

Agree with Peter it all gets a bit mind numbing at times when your care factor approximates zero. Would be good if the ignore function also did not display threads "started by" as well as its current action. Overall tis a small thing, but one can dream :-)

Makes you think. If this is what they are like when they are looking for a bit of light relief in a car forum, imagine what its like in prime time. Must be relentless.

Here's your chance:

US Political Forum:

What Cars do you have?

I've blocked a few members since I came back but now I wonder what they are saying.

An Off Topic, Political Section, would be nice. I would avoid it.

I like their points system for infringements. They must either have very few members or a Mod Team the size of a Government department to manage it.

I hope I didn't violate rule #10 for linking to them.

Seems that if you violate enough rules you get "Permaban", some guy from Devon shows up and seals your concrete floors. That's what google says.

Seriously, one member posting to the off topic area is getting his facts and stories directly from a hate forum. I will not post a link.

I enjoy this forum and appreciate the hard work, selfless dedication, and time it takes to keep it going. Thank you

Hey Fulton

I have a friend of a close friend who is a Newfie.

He has been in Oz for about 20 years now but hasn't lost the accent

Kind of like a Celtcanadian twang

I just got back from Newfoundland last week. I travel there quite frequently, love the area and the people. Weather in February, not so much.
