However, the benefit would be, that sub-forum would be restricted to a single topic.
I just created a special thread in Miscellaneous.


IF, it goes well, we will create the Sub-Forum


Users choice.

At this time, topics such as guns, politics and religion are considered improper and forbidden.
https://www.goldwingfacts.com/forums...rum-rules.html

That was an original Steve Saunders rule I believe. What is being proposed is to ignore those taboos and create a forum to deal with them.

Personally, I think Steve was right.
PAPete and Ken Bergen like this.

Why ain't we ridin'?

This posting is to be moved to the future" off topic' lol

When it coms to marijuana or cannabis as is called I have not much of an opinion in the matter. I have never used it and most likely never will.
But I have a friend that has grown kids who are using the weed.
He, the parent, seems to believe that some will abuse it but most will just use occasionally as enjoyment as we do alcohol.

There is a documentary on Netflix called Murder Mountain and the legalization of the weed in California- Humboldt County.
( I went across it in my travels 2-3 years ago)
While the film supports the idea of legal pot the viewer could see what the habitant growers did to that area. Trash all over the place. Someone in the film says the mountain should be called "Trash Mountain"
Then everyone drive around with a bongo in his hands.
I wouldn't want someone like that sharing the road with me. Am I for legalization of pot? Still dont care one way or the other

I make sense all the time. The problem is you only listen intermittently

Follow me on the spot

the new Experimental Thread will resolve that question...


it is easy to say, " we will never, ever........... " and refuse to bend rules...


IF, the new thread stays clean, and on topic, then we modify the Rules.


I am looking forward, if we allow a clean discussion of guns, our readership participation will increase.

you just raised a reason for an "Off Topic" sub-forum....
had not even considered that might be of interest for discussion.


Personally, it needs to be legalized for medical reasons, and as of Jan 1st, it is in Oklahoma... we now have special pharma outlets for it....

Certainly less volatile than religion and politics.

It is likely to quickly convert to politics. To make it work you probably need to put in a rule that says you will never discuss gun control laws or mass shootings.

Topics should be restricted to subjects like

Reviews of particular models of guns/gun accessories
Results of gun competitions you have competed in
Questions on how you can improve your accuracy when target shooting
Best weapon for hunting a particular type of game
Questions on where you can buy item XXX
I found a really great buy on XXX at YYY
Possibly questions about regulations such as I will be going to Location ZZZ, are there any local regulations I need to worry about

That is easy enough,with the current rules...
no need to allow us to drift into the Fake Media news element of Farcebook


if a post shows up mentioning those things, it will simply disappear without comment.
