I wouldn't say it drives them away but more like enrages them to the point of rioting

Use the ones made for bears. They usually have greater range!

Enrage is right...the word "republican" throws them in a tail spin.

Liberals have "emotional incontinence"!

The Off-Topic forum has reopened and hopefully it will stay open. The Political forum was recently limited to gun-related topics as had always been the rule, albeit unenforced. The highly emotional topics in that forum prompted more rule violations (and even some temporary Member bans) than all other forums combined, so the decision was made to enforce the gun-related limitation.

As soon as that was done, political topics/threads immediately appeared in the Off-Topic forum, in spite of a warning not to do so. This prompted the temporary closure of that forum. Now that the Off-Topic forum has reopened, we want everyone to be aware that any political threads or posts will be deleted and don't look for a PM explaining why -- this post explains the reason. Any Member who repeatedly violates this rule will find they can no longer post in the Off-Topic forum.

The TexasCHLforum.com has become more than just a discussion board for guns and many Members had requested the Off-Topic forum so the Forum could develop into more of an online community. We want to encourage discussion and quite candidly, I wish it has not become necessary to limit the political discussions that are gun-related. While we don't like limiting or prohibiting the discussion of any topics, we will do what is necessary to maintain the friendly community atmosphere we have enjoyed for almost nine years.

The Off-Topic forum has again become, in my opinion, a place for political topics that are better left to other forums. I can get political discussions, insults and arguments in 99% of other gun forums.

Have you tried skipping the discussions you don't like? It's not Pokemon and you don't have to read 'em all.
This is my opinion. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

I skip quite a few discussions of which I have no interest and a couple obstinate old trolls are on my ignore list. Works well for me.

If political discussions here are popular enough here that people think it will be good to keep around, may I suggest a dedicated general poli-sci subforum? I personally am not a fan of general political talk inside threads that are clearly nonpolitical. If we have a regular off-topic forum that is strictly enforced no politics while having a separate place for politics, I think it would make everyone happy. Those who don't wish to partake in heated debates over the man can ignore the subforum while being able to safely peruse the regular off-topic forum. And those who do like to debate in a level-headed manner can do so in the subforum after, say, 45 posts or something to keep out the trolls who just signed up. Whadya think?

How about two political subforums (subfora?) so those who don't wish to see opposing political views can ignore the X subforum while being able to safely peruse the Y political subforum. Or vice versa. I get them mixed up sometimes. ;-)

I don’t think the whole class should be punished because of one person. Learn some self discipline as that will serve you better in the long run.
