... to delete the 'religion' section from the forum?
You are right NK and I plead guilty, actually I was just stiring the pot so I'm really one who should get smacked.. I promise I will refrain from doing it anymore..I have made some minor changes to the Religion and Politics sections - you have to be logged into the system in order to view them both. I am also considering shutting down all posts in there and make it a "request-to-post" section where people would have to read the rules fully and completely before they would be allowed to post (it would be on an individual basis). I can make it so that anyone logged in can read, but, not post.
I would create alot of extra work for me, but, if it has to be done, it might just be done ...
I really don't care for the religion and politics section because most members cannot (or will not) follow the rules that state that both sections are for discussion that affects preppers and it is not a section to convince others that their views are wrong ...
That is the reason why I haven't totally killed-off those two sections - because we need to know, but, we cannot have a xxxxxxxxx person trying to convince a yyyyyyyyy person that their views are wrong. We need to use those sections to warn other preppers about upcoming decisions by the PTB that could affect them. Sometimes the PTB is in politics and sometimes is in religion - but - there is always someone trying to control others.NaeKid, UncleJoe, et al, I agree with your concerns regarding the uncivility on the political and religion posts (I have to agree with Hozay too about a stimulating discussion ), but this is a prepper forum.
Bad politics and violent or repressive religions can directly affect the welfare of every member of this forum. The rise of N azism occurred because of bad politics coupled with a desperate but short-sighted German population.
911, the KKK, and Jim Jones with his 700 Kool Aid dead, etc etc, were all the result of a perverted power of religion.
I believe we, as preppers, should be able to discuss these threats -- yes -- in a civilized fashion. So.............JMHO, but I believe religion and politics are valid and valuable discussions for preppers as long as they relate to prepping. I hope those topics remain without having to jump through too many hoops to participate.
I never go in....As far as the religion section goes I don't post there much...
