Default No religion or politics.

Since these subjects can't be touched, history and philosophy must also be avoided. Should we talk about the weather?

I say no to threads about politics or religion (people lose their heads) but come on... a little flexibility here.

Mods it's OK if you lock boring threads but don't... damn I was having fun reading the latest posts in the Moon Landing thread.

"The way up and the way down are one in the same" We need a wild west forum but the mods have cold feet.

Not to steer you away from DiyAudio, but politicalchat.org might be what you're looking for.

BTW, in my mind, the mods do their job very well. This is a very friendly site, and it is about audio, after all.

Guilty as charged but happy with the mod's approach. The board has pretty simple, pretty clear, reasonably consistantly moderated rules. I'm happy with that.

Weather? OK, how's this: Winter in Canada sucks this year. Actually, I should be happy, it's been between -10 and 0C in the past week, and it seems more of the same is on the way for the next. IT's supposed to be around -20C(-4F) and a foot of snow on the ground in February. Our winter seems to have gone south...

like, to Virginia! (poor folks)

I actually kinda like the winter this year....

Just enough to know it's winter, and not enough to be a pain in the a**. Tonight was the worst drive to work I've had this season. It's nice to have the sick days saved up for the nice weather this summer

Some of the mods were a little sad to see the Moon Landing closed too...

The weather lady said last week... ave temp is x degrees, typical of June....

We need rain, and a good snowfall would encourage the Trillium to blossom when "spring" comes, but Crocus are out, daffodils not far brhind, leaves staring to pop out...

The last few were people grasping at straws trying to give merit to silly opinions based on even silly'er and inappropriate material for this forum.

I mean come on...

Can anyone say synonym...?
