I participate in the off topic and politics forums and I don't agree with what you said. This site is about more than sailing, and it is nice to have a place where people can just talk about whatever they want, discuss the days events, etc. Even the arguments foster a sense of community in my opinion. Besides, without the politics forum a lot of people would never understand how wrong they are.
