Re: Politics and Moderation

Two thumbs up, keep up the good work. Good reminder for all of us to be more courteous to our fellow sailors. I know i have slipped up a few times.
As they say, there is a time and place for everything.

Exactly right.

I'm on one end of the spectrum and a lot of my friends are on the other...it would make for an awful, lonely place if we let it stand in our way.

Re: Politics and Moderation

One thing about politics/off topic/gun threads is it makes this forum very USA centric.
That's fine if that's what the Mods want. But if you wish to become more international IMHO the politics tend to restrict it.

Re: Politics and Moderation

I support your efforts at walking the fine line of expression and moderation. St. Augustine said:
In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity.

Thank you for giving us this great forum to enjoy our passion. Hopefully we can self regulate ourselves so that others don't have to.

I agree. I think the mods should establish a requirement that all political discourse on SN be restricted ONLY to Taiwanese politics.

Those folks know how to throw down:
