Just because we have it every year doesn't make it any better. or in other words: Just because you have a skunk spraying your house every time it gets cold doesn't make the odor any better.
Now we have three choices:
a) Either just let it stink every time it happens (which besides stinking goes against our stated policies of divisive posts)
b) Delete/close the thread alltogether
c) move it into a special area where the folks if they really feel the need can discuss it, but that is not SO public that every guest see's the spats of the members.
Frankly I do not want it stinking every time something happens, so
a) is not an option
. (Because many folks are simply tired of political and religious diatribes, left or right. Quite frankly I rather read about chemtrails and other interesting ideas than religion or politics. Now before you say "you are not required to read it, nobody is forcing you" While that argument is perfectly fine for any other member of the forum, admins, and forum moderators are supposed to read MOST of it in order to prevent worse, like personal attacks or personal spats from happening)
b) I know would immediately end in a couple members yelling that they have the right to express their opinion, and that this is censoring, and what not else.
c) move such threads to a forum that is not publicly accessible.
Since the supporting member forum is the only one in that category right now it would be the target. It has already been explained that this has nothing to do with exclusionary or any other chemtrail/alien abuduction like theory, but only due to the above mentioned. If you want you can see that as a step to allow folks that support the site to continue their useless discussions while others cannot. And yes, if they want to continue the political/religious discussions they might as well pay for that right since THAT bandwidth has NOTHING/ZERO/NADA/ZILCH to do with motorcycling or any BMW motorcycle for that matter.
