    Any so called rules are ignored - really casts this entire website in a bad light - users and especially those running it..

      I can't even view the Political Posts page on FABO. You have to be interested enough to sign up for that page separately. I would expect that you would also need to be open minded enough to listen to varying viewpoints?
      Of course, you should know by now that the current usage of the term, "hate speech", merely refers to any speech that disagrees with the views of Hollywood, MSNBC, CNN, and the DNC.

        Since one has to ask to join I don't see your point. I never asked to join and I am unaffected by the churn-------------Because I don't want to go there for that very reason--------------

          Some car sites ban all political posts. Personally, I think it is a very classy move to not allow political posts.

          Car sites should be for talking about cars. :)

            I look at it like this: The Political Forum section is like a radio or television channel. If you don't like what is going on, change the channel. Same here. If you don't want to participate in that forum - don't. Simple as that. I rarely if ever go in there. That said, just because I don't agree with everything said in there, I certainly don't want to take anyone else's right to go there away from them. Enter at your own risk.

              How many times is this guy gonna cry and whine because he doesn't like the forum? DAVE, you have to sign up to even VIEW that subsection, have a moderator REMOVE your request to view, and stay out! It's really simple!

                  So, you want a forum dumped that you have to sign up for to view and participate. Might I suggest you simply "demember" yourself?

                      Typical leftie. If he doesn't like guns, instead of not buying one he wants them banned. These people are truly mentally ill. Hey, I'll be optimistic. Now we have a NP forum Nanny. Always wanted one of those...

                        I would also like any mention of eggplant to be removed from the forum as I find it slimy and not at all appetizing.

                              Hey man, my wife is part Cherokee!!!!! lol

                              This thread p &p deal pops up ever so often. As will one about this site should be 100% totally A body. If the guy today asks a question about his 59 Plymouth, personally I am not butt hurt.
                              If the language gets hot on the p & p deal, or whatever, I can just not tune into that thread, right. I really don't see the problem!

                                No. It reflects on all of us on this site whether we participate in that forum/segment of this website or not - take a look sometime before you comment -no decent person would want to be associated with it; by using this website you are supporting that particular forum as well as the other ones. Actually sounds like there are a few russian troll types operating out of there as well. Something to think about.

                                  I tried it for about a month several years ago. Wasn't my cup of tea so I left. I had completely forgotten about it until this thread.

                                    When I was a mod, there was no denying access as it is part of the job. I didn’t like it one bit, but if having a place for people to go talk politics keeps it out of the living room, I can deal with that!

                                      Seems like a no-brainer to me.

                                        Thats the beauty of America... people can have and voice their opinions without the KGB eliminating them or their family.
                                        And we will get along tomorrow....

                                          I like that if a car thread starts to get political, they can be directed to take it to the political forum. Without that forum, there's nowhere for them to go.

                                            Politics..... We the people have no control..... So why let it invade your space? Never been in that forum and never will be. It brings out the worst in people IMO.

                                            But it's there and if it bothers you just disregard it and go cut some seniors lawn or maybe go fix a bike for an under privileged kid. It sure will make you feel better than talking about politics.....

                                              So if you’re so open, how come I can’t even view your profile page? Pretty simple: If you can’t handle other people’s views, stay out of the forums!

                                                    Now Dave,
                                                    That beautiful car I've seen of yours
                                                    Has no political value. Right?
                                                    Thats why we have this forum
                                                    To keep the cars separate from politics.
                                                    Great idea.
                                                    Don't piss and moan about a political forum
                                                    You can't compete or agree with others
                                                    Beliefs even though you may be the minority.

                                                    It's actually a learning experience for those
                                                    That quite aren't sure of reality.
