I applaud the admin for not allowing this content! As a senior member of First Gen Firebird, I saw trouble brewing when they allowed a political thread to be posted. At first I joined in as a neutral party with a humorous spin. But then it got ugly, and all it did was cause division and ruffle feathers, pardon the pun. It caused me to protest in a silent fashion by no longer posting in their lounge. However I still post to the tech side. There's just no place for that content in forums of special interest.
