Just curious...with the 1st Amendment & all??? How come folks would not be encouraged to talk about constitutional issues & concerns? I am sure it is because those discussions can turn passionate and BITOG doesn't want to be responsible for "hate speech" hosted here, but still my curiosity got the best of me enough to ask why? thx

The people here, by and large, are very nice, and very smart. I'm sure you could have a nice talk with them. Helen has her own "constitution" though.

We'd end up taking sides 1000x worse than we currently do. Flame suits would become mandatory equipment for venturing into off-topic.

You see how "huffy-puffy" members get over something that really does not matter (like brands/type of oil) just think how explosive things would get on subjects that are important! Helen has it right! \:\! Bill

We can't even discuss Mobil-1 and Iron issues or Fram filters without the discussions getting heated and you want to talk about Politics?

This is a privately owned forum and the owner can dictate what is allowed to be discussed here.

The main problem here is THOSE people...you know, THEM! They are always causing trouble, and there's no no talking to them. On top of that, they don't know what they're talking ABOUT! Bunch of uneducated morons, that's what they are. If they would only think like us and act like us and talk like us and vote like us, then we could all get along.

Discussion of politics will only guarantee that the discussion will end badly... just like politics in real life.

Lubrication issues keep things passionate enough, that's for sure.

Politics is fine as long as it doesn't involve Government, political parties, or the subjects they tend to use to manipulate us, since that involves the use of force against people, which tends to make people mad.
