Given that political posts, (such as the two below), have absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with audio, (either audio equipment or music), rather than merely stating "This message has been moved to a more appropriate venue" (i.e. to the "Outside" forum), and then putting all the subsequent posts in said "Outside" Forum, could you instead put the original post there as well, so that there is absolutely no trace of it in the "General" forum as all?
I think that would be the best thing to do myself.
(And if I had my way, you'd give the offending person a warning for the first offense for doing this, a week suspension for the second offense, a month suspension for the third offense, and a permanent ban for the fourth offense.)
I think everyone on this entire site is really pretty tired of the whole political crap that some people decide to initiate on all but the Outside forums. (And personally, I NEVER visit the outside forum for just that reason.)
My two cents worth anyway!
Oh, and BTW, Thanks Rod for doing such a good job running this site. And once I get back on my feet finacially, I'll be making a donation to your new server fund.
