Exclamation Politics forum members gone

I notice many of the political posters lack of participation with new changes being made to the forums and whatnot. Honestly, I'll kind of miss it, but I can totally understand where the mods are coming from. Our love of cars is what unites us, politics only divides us.

Already had one of my posts deleted today. I was very careful about my phrasing. Not complaining, just curious how many members that we will no longer hear from, due to the inability to disagree with one another on here.

On the contrary, my dear sir, I believe it was in fact their extreme and rabid ability to disagree with one another that brought the politics forum down.

Its a shame they just didn't learn to disagree with one another in a more courteous way. I enjoyed that forum, riding the high seas of everyone's emotion was extremely amusing.

I will have no part of this culture that seems to want to cancel everything. If only there was a term used for this type of mentality. Perhaps Cult of Cancelogy?

I truly hope VERY FEW. I have never had the face space or brag book, had IG and deleted it. Social media, while intended to be a highlight reel has turned to its antithesis and is a wasteland of ugly lowlight reels. I found this forum and was elated at the participation. Reminded me of the early 2000's.... then one month in this bomb....

It did get rather emotional in there at times. I will say that this is going to make my job, of getting under people's skin, a little more difficult. It's going to be much harder to locate the emotionally inept. What happened to the guy who was trying to file for unemployment benefits while still employed?

This'll do. Plus, when I initially read it, my brain put an "r" right after the "e" automatically for some reason, so there is that too, even though it wouldn't make sense. Though it is a cancer.

I believe he didn't enjoy his time in the Thunderdome and exited quickly. With a reasonable degree of confidence, I can state that this was the most intelligent thing he did based on his contributions before.

Another one will be along soon I'm sure. I count on it.
