Don't we want more participation, more diversity, more competition? Why be content with the status quo? Why insult the uninitiated? Lets turn over a new leaf unless you feel too threatened and secure in your own little world of diversion.
we do but politics and such arent what people look for in a ot it gets old in a hurry i think those that post all that should start there own ot called politics and policies
I agree that we should be open to participation but that doesn't mean changing what BWOT is to open it up.
I have found that, historically folks that wanted to talk politics or economics or social issues within the confines of a Benz based OT structure came to BWOT. Those what seemed more into technical issues only stayed out of the OT side. We also have plenty of nice side dishes to discuss here in BWOT that are still of the serious vein.
Those that wanted to be within a Benz structure, but not talk politics and the more serious subjects tended to hang at MBWorld and talk about sex, finally getting rid of zits, how many collars to turn up, how to finally score, who was "hot", who was "gay", how to hide herpes outbreaks from that "special" one night stand and NASCAR SUX.
That is why the political discourse at MBWorld OT is mindnumbingly dull and the Entertainment Tonight quotient is pegged.
In other words, we have the best NeoCon Kookbergers, Libtards and Libertarians with fences up their ass of any OT on the Interwebtubethingie.
