This forum is so focused on politics that it does not serve it's originally intended function as a general anything-besides-pool topic forum.

I suggest renaming this "Political Forum" and creating a new "Non Pool Related" forum for everything besides pool and politics.

No one has to read the political posts here.

Post whatever you like, and the other members will indicate their level of overall interest with their responses.

Why try to dictate what others may or may not write on an internet forum, for all other things aside from pool?

I agree with both posts here.

Both are valid points.

Your message needs to be heeded by the cabal. the admins and the mods.

Sev and myself have started numerous non political threads ... all of which were trolled by one or more of the board's hatemongers.

This is a non political thread and you just trolled it. So much for your theory. St.

While I agree with your point Gayle, I also see Tom's concern as well.

It must be frustrating to anyone not interested in the political banter to have to scroll through so much to find anything non-political. I don't think he is trying to dictate what others may or may not write, I think he's saying that the sheer volume of politically charged threads warrants its own section entirely.

I just don't think non-political related topics ever get any traction on this board.

My friend, did you really think I required your interpretation of what he wrote?

Thanks for sharing... /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif

BTW, asked you two days ago for an up-date on the baby....in the thread about Nora...I hope things are going well....

How is he doing?

FYI, Tom comes round here every so years and always makes the same post. Ask anybody.

Yet you never participated in any of them ... except, of course, in your role as troll.

Ya, the only difference would be that the same people would disagree on the price of tea in China instead. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif St.
