The 2 threads that were moved...(Pre-emptive statement)

They were both highly political, and we do have a Politics and Religion forum. If you want access, shoot me a PM, and I will authorize access to that forum. It's kept limited access intentionally.

They were moved as a result of complaints about political posting outside of P&R, and we do try to keep the main forums as apolitical as possible.

Got to disagree with moving the gubernatorial post to P&R

It was a bicycling article, correctly quoted, to which I added absolutely no fire.

If it upset The Weak Link, that was only because of his reading into the article. He then wrote an article using words like "crackpot" in the title which do NOT appear in his article, and then he equates the two threads. They are not the same and should be treated differently.

My thoughts exactly.

I stated my position in the PM, denver. It was political. If anyone wants access to P&R, I'll happily let you in. It's actually pretty fun in there, really. The discussions can get intense, but they are intellectually stimulating.....not just stupid trolling, anymore.

I'm closing this thread now.
