Posting of Politically Oriented Topics

#1 Post by Hobie » Thu Jan 10, 2013 9:05 am

Gentlemen,

We shooters are being attacked and many of you are expressing your distaste for that and otherwise discussing politics at a level equal to or exceeding that before the election. However, you are forgetting to post in the politics forum. So, we're going to institute the same rule that applies in the Classifieds. If the post is in the wrong forum it is likely to disappear.
Sincerely,

Hobie

I doubt any of us mind in the least if we screw up and you delete our post.

We're just glad you put up with us and our antics.

We really do try to behave, honestly... :oops:

I have noticed the sheer volume of political posts have increased exponentially!

Gee, I wonder why?

Speaking for yourself I hope.
The one I posted he deleted instead of moving happened before this notice was posted ~or~ at least before I saw it.

I mind.

Nothing I can do about it and I can't repost because I can't access the original source any more.

Oh well.

Do the political posts have a time limit? It seems there are only two pages of topics.

Hah! I say...! I think we should DOUBLE his pay, and take it out of your computer budget, since you save all that wear-and-tear on your 'shift' key by keeping it locked on... :lol:

All of a sudden, with no fanfare, the political posts are being trimmed.....Not nice :?

Not sure what is desired for a "politically oriented topic", but I just hope that all the Trump hype doesn't pull the wool over peoples eyes and make them forget that the good Mr. Trump has been all over the map when it comes to gun issues. He has been anti gun and pro gun, what his true beliefs are I am afraid we will not know as he doesn't seem willing to properly lay out and "promise" that whatever his position is will hold true should he become the Republican Candidate....much less the POTUS.
I have a very hard time trusting a man that used the Bankruptcy Courts as a common way to do business. Sure does hurt a lot of innocent people other than of course himself. Will he act that was as POTUS? Is that what we really want?
We KNOW where Cruz stands on the other hand so don't let the reality TV star fool you without getting a "written in stone" answer from him regarding at least my number one topic of interest.
