RE: Whos tired of all these poltical people posting in off topic

I think when anyone pigeonholes themself with a particular group it tends to get creepy. I could not label myself as a liberal, yet I know Bush is not the right man for the job. Doesn't mean I want to fellate Ted kennedy either.

is anyone else as tired as i am of having all these different topics about how bush sucks and so on. why cant we have a off topic section that is useful like mbworld.
As I read this thread, it seems the only point of the post quoted above, the one originating the thread, is to impose a form of censorship. Now, it might be a little "over the top" to make a flat statement that it is because the author represents a facist movement. But the idea that because you are "tired of all these different topics about how bush sucks and so on." you should be able to prevent people from posting those topics is pretty close to you appointing yourself the censor for the Off-Topic Forum. Now, there is a pretty well established relationship between censorship and facism. So, the idea of censorship being associated with facism, and the person calling for censorship being called a facist is not completely out of the blue.

Personally, I find many of the threads likely meaningless to me, or topics I would find abrasive. So I either don't read them at all, or, I check them out and if they are not my cup of tea, I don't read them again. I would suggest if you don't like the Bush bashing, and you do like other topics, then post a few other topics you like. It is an "Off-Topic" Forum, afterall. Jim

What he really means is that if you continue with your rants you will be joining this group of people in the traitor list from the pro bush movement: http://www.probush.com/traitor.htm

your right in the fact that i wasnt clear i am just tired of all political posts in a car forums off topic area and am using mbworld and DTMpower.net's off topic section as an example of what an off topic section should look like. a diversity of trash and point less stuff. in a way i am winning since you are replying to my thread and i am creating diversity in the off topic section. and in no way am i saying we should sensor or that one side is right or wrong.... some people are taking what i say out of context and using it for their own gratification. so far i have 7 votes of people who are just tired of it and only 5 that support it. i am not calling for a ban of all political talk i am just asking to lay off we dont need 3 or 4 new political topics a day are the just ridiculous and that are intended to bash one person.
