We need a o/t political forum!!

Almost 90% of the topics in here are political. I think we should have a seperate political forum. Just a suggestion...

Now that has a familiar ring. You're right, it is a bit overwhelming. Start more non-political threads to help balance the scale. Hopefully, balance will come of its own accord in about a month...

RE: We need a o/t political forum!!

Almost 100% of the political threads are made by one person that apparently thinks he is the only member with a TV set or newspaper. All he does is quote what other people say. Why don't we just censor him?[^]

I would say three weeks before the closest and most divisive election in history, we are about where one would expect. Its a supply and demand thing. GO ahead, start a thread about your dog, see if it beats Cheney.

Captain Crunch. Since you tapped danced on the grave of OD why the hell did you come here? You contribute almost nothing. Perhaps you don't appreciate well documented discussions but the majority of us here do. If you don't like us so much why don't you take your ball and go HOME. Or SHUT UP.

This isn't America it's Benzworld. If I wanted to listen to someone complain, bitch and criticize without adding anything to the discussion I could go visit my ex-wife.
Capt. Crunch came on here and said how glad he was that we were all gone from MBShop OD. What does he do? Come here and try to disrupt this forum.
He should get a life.
Ultimately, you're right. I'm not an advocate of censorship. But in this case I'll make an exception.
