Please stay on topic. If you can't and you absolutely have to go off on a political rant about whatever (or against another member), expect your posts to be deleted as spam, which also bans you from making any future posts.

I (as well as other users) are tired of seeing every damn thread turn into a political slapfight and it ends right now.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled Rocky Point Forum.
Thank-you,
The Management

Seems people still don't get it... I'm tired of seeing the insults in here.

If I see someone post something negative about someone else, you'll be banned for 30 days. If I have to ban multiple people, I'm just going to shutdown the forum.

I refuse to pay for something to promote hate and insults.

That is the goal after all, to find a place where everyone is on group think. Nobody likes to have their beliefs challenged. It gets uncomfortable.

My profession requires critical review as well as critical thinking. Ideas must be challenged. It's a part of the job. It would be great to have ideas constructively challenged as well as opinions stated as opinion rather than opinions stated as facts. That's far different than name calling and put downs.

Pray tell what profession you are ?

I agree in (and enjoy) discourse that challenges and brings insight to thought and opinion on an informative and neighborly platform. Thing is -- as you point out -- there are those who launch personal and political attacks from the darndest, most innocent, simplistic, often unrelated topics, who ruin any avenue for “informative, neighborly, and critical thought."

Well that explains a lot about your posts. Without disagreement and alternative thought and facts, sometime conflict, the world would never have a chance. You do not think the world would be boring if we all thought the same. Physical conflict and aggression are not required, but is that not the objective of totalitarian governments? Russia, china, a basic tenant of communism. Independent thought is little tolerate.

World conflict...tenants of communism...totalitarianism? What are you even talking about? Is the social distancing really that bad there?

Tyler, thanks for stopping by and lowering the boom, it needed to be done. I can't even recall the last time something was posted that stayed on topic, helped the poster that was inquiring, and gave out some information that was beneficial to all. The last couple months, this forum has done no favors to its original purpose, or the people reading it.
