The new system means it is so difficult to split a thread when it gets bigger.
So with that in mind, certain posters should be aware they could be booted into the other forums by being stopped from using this one if this carries on.
Many many things are being allowed on our Main Forum BUT politics are not allowed on here and quite a few have complained about these mini hijacks.
Please be warned.
I certainly won't miss the political input on here, and can certainly do without it. I am, however, pretty surprised that "quite a few" see fit to complain about content on a website for which they are not paying, and on which they have total freedom to read what they like and not read the remainder. Yes, of course I can understand complaints for more extreme content - significant personal abuse, bullying, anything obscene etc. - but to try and dictate what content is allowed simply because a topic is not to your taste seems excessive to me. Crying to the MODS about opinions you don't share or topics that are not of interest (but which are posted in a reasonable manner) is a little reminiscent of school sneaks running to teacher. Perhaps someone who thinks differently might explain (rather than complain to the MODS about THIS post!).
I most enjoy Pasoti when there are decent well-argued debates, in which different viewpoints are explored. Hearing the opinions of those who think differently to myself is, in my opinion, much more stimulating than having a load of people agree with my viewpoint by saying exactly the same thing.
