How bad is the OT reputation among the other forums here?

I can't help but wonder if we might not be a little too progressive and esoteric for some of the more moderate minded members here. Perhaps we should embrace the others, rejoice in their moderation, become inclusive instead of exclusive?

Not on my watch it won't. I have been on other forums and the posters there seem to think that BWOT is the best, the love the freedom of expression here. That is all.

BWOT as it is serves a purpose to BW in general – perverted and demented – but a purpose none the less.

i think things are just fine here IMHO! i used to post on the 'other' benz forum where i experienced a lot of hatred and exclusivity, brought on by last years election.

when i came over here you guys have a sick and crazy sense of humor albeit, but i always felt welcome from guys like clkman, drewproof and others from the regular bunch. what is different over here is that even though we all have different opinions you guys dont accept hatred and racism. there are some resident nuts but you guys usually shut them down, unlike the other forum.

i dont post often enough to be taken seriously like the regulars (sorry i have a life and a job ) but the atmosphere is really cool. once a newbie gets past the sick humor which sometimes brings me to tears they should be fine.

I prefer Pella windows.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thats what I intend to reverse.
