I know, I've been on forums/bulletin boards for almost 20 years, and never - I repeat, NEVER
- has a political thread ended well. I thought this might have a chance since it started very benign and wasn't overtly political in nature, I saw it more like "congratulations on getting through a hairy election" type message.
But no, politics are normally never tolerated or encouraged, because they don't end well. I'd love to see this thread be an exception, but lines are already being toe'd.
I went to a political forum, started talking about Buddy Rich, and they jumped all over me. So, there ya go.
