Is Foo just an oasis from reality? If so, please disregard all that follows...
Since the powers-that-be nixed P&R (basically any meaningful convo outside of gear inches) foo is the only place left to address the real issues.
Here's a deal... I'll buy my damn star if we bring back P&R and stop the nannyism in that subforum.
Give folks a place to run wild. It's good for morale.
Plus it allows foo to get back to the inanity that it thrives on.
