It's not a rule... it's just that most of the posters here don't care to discuss politics or religion here... we all certainly welcome anyone to post something about it... but you probably won't get much response.<br><br>

Mike...there is no such rule. We were all playing around one day welcoming a new poster I think. Someone was just kidding around when they posted (made up rules) these rules. It was all just in fun...at least that is the way I took it.<br><br><br>
and you left out 10) When people post inflamatory remarks to try to instigate others so that they can get their rocks off. NTO1, if you don't like it here, leave. Free world.<br><br>With that...I'll take #11.<br><br>

Oh. I don't really care myself. I don't like to discuss politics or religion with people I can't see, since there is no real way of knowing who is on the other end and how they might respond. This topic just happened to be at the top of the list when I came to this page, and since I don't really know the landscape here, I thought I would ask.<br><br>
On this forum, it is not bad at all. Over at Maccentral, there are a lot of political threads. I truthfully have never participated in any of them mostly because i am not that informed on politics. I just skip over most of them.<br><br><br>
NTO1, if you don't like it here, leave. Free world.<br><br>Oh, I have, but that doesn't mean I can't chime in and remind some folk here why some of us came here in the first place. In fact, the irony is that the very 'lost weekend' which caused the MC split is now replicated here in it's full glory.<br><br>I never then or now had a problem with the 'lost weekend' megathread, the type of thread that's been replicated here again and again. My only issue is that now the reason for coming here-- FREEDOM OF POSTING-- has been forgotten by the very people who benefit from it. Amazing.<br><br>Look, have your little no politics/no religion/we're cooler than those guys click if you must, but you may wish to rethink this borish and repetitive self-congradulatory parade you keep throwing for yourselves and find something to talk about BESIDES how you don't talk about politics.<br><br>
