Let me ask you something....

What is wrong with just not posting about Politics and Religon? (or jokes that get other forum members stirred)

Chilly doesn't have any rules writen in writing but has made it clear in the past that these threads do nothing good for the forum.

If you want to post about your religion or lack of, why don't you find a website that talks about that? Same goes for Politics or lack of.

I'm just wondering what you think you are accomplishing when you post about these topics?

I enjoy a good discussion. If these topics were anywhere but the "garage" section, I wouldn't like to see them. But I like it that we can have people who are into hot rodding share their opinions on stuff like this. I've learned some stuff and, more importantly, it gives me different points of view to think about.

If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don't have to worry about answers.

Garage
I personally have no problem with somebody talking about their religion or politics as long as it's from a point of positivity about their own beliefs. Bret's signiture and the name of his truck are perfect examples.

I think the problems in these threads come from insulting other people's point of view, or telling others what they shoud believe or how they should behave.

One of my professors used to say....."you don't have to be anti-union to be pro-management". Along the same lines, I don't think you have to be anti-liberal to be pro-conservative, anti-Islam to be pro-Christian, or anti-chevy to be pro-Ford.

As you can tell, I enjoy the discussions. I'm not one who checks out 10 different forums every day. I just go here and FTE. I will try and not get involved with it anymore, I can't make any promises though. My point of view is: if you don't like it, don't click on it. For those of us that do enjoy a lively discussion it is a good place to see others point of view, learn something new and maybe even get our opinions changed.

Sharpen your pitchforks and light your torches... 'CHANGE' is coming!

We say grace, and we say ma'am, if you ain't into that we don't give a damn... cause a country boy can survive!

Its not a democracy here. Just delete or lock the threads if you get annoyed.
Your a pretty easy going guy so I know you would be a benevolent dictator.

Im and admin on one forum and a mod on another.
The other forum has about 3K members and about 15 mods.
Ask for Chilly for help.

I usually go by the 'mixed company' rule. If it's not something I would say or do in mixed company, I don't post it.

I'd be just as happy if the relig & politic talk stays off 460ford. Those two are just lightning rods for arguments.

Jones, Sorry for causing you grief!! I guess I have had a pretty fair share in stirring things up. I just feel there is a status quo on this forum. Only the Hardline political or religous stuff gets posted. If you differ in opinion, you get attacked and Fire and brimstone rains down on you. Theirs no point in that. I will keep it to myself. Again, sorry for the grief.
