    Default Lets talk politics 2

    Rule Number one.

    You never ever ever lock down a thread.

    Let them rant, let them type any word they choose.

    The second you lock free speach down? You lose.

    Wrong move mates.

    I thought this was going to be different.

    Let's not talk politics here. Time and place for things. For instance there are off color jokes I tell my buddies at the factory that I don't tell my wife's girl friends.

    Gotta read the Rules Seadog. It's there in clear print when you register. It is there in clear print if you click on the Rules button.

    It's not about locking down Free Speech it's about maintaining control over a message board. People can't control their emotions with political and religious type conversations and they often leak into the rest of the board. I'm not interested in being a babysitter and that is what is often needed when you allow those types of discussions..... therefor... sweetchuck has a Message Board that all can go to and sling mud at each other and what not with the Political talk. We helped him plug his website abnd that was the purpose of the Politics threads. they were NEVER intended to discuss Politics OR break the very rules we have had stated since day 1 here and hell, were even a carry over from The Buccos Forum, The Steelers Forum and The Pens Forum...

    Rule Four : Do Not Discuss Politics And Religion.

    We are aware that people have their personal preferences on such matters, however it is our experience that discussion on these subjects often end in hostility and takes away from the atmosphere and environment we are trying to maintain at Pittsburgh Sports Tavern. In no way is PST Fox News, MSNBC, or Church. Failure to adhere to this rule will result in a First Offense Warning. Political and Religious Topics, Posts, Photos, Songs or Videos are subject to being deleted without any warning or explanation.

    1 point. Second infraction is 6 points.
    On a side note...

    I MAKE THE RULES around here, nobody else. We can quit with the "rule number one" stuff. Rules were established before this website went public and if one has an issue with them after moving over from Toro's sites, guess what? I made the Rules over there. These ones are just a little more explanatory
