This is a family friendly forum. Flaming (even if "we can both take it, it's all in fun"), nazi symbolism, political discussions, racy or "disgusting" images, etc are not appropriate. We can still have fun and not cross the lines of a place where kids and adults of all walks of life can come to enjoy themselves.

That's correct. The site is here to discuss fish, and in my experience on these forums as soon as politics creeps in to the discussions, people who were previously fast friends start becoming upset with one another. Let's stick to the purpose of the site and not alienate people for off-topic reasons.

In that case I would have to question the extent of a friendship if it were dissolved through simple opinionated disscoarse.

This really isn't up for debate. My long experience doing this has taught me that allowing political discussions does not further our agenda as a reefkeeping community. We aren't here to have "opinionated discourse" about politics. There are other sites devoted to such things.

Unless there is some type of nazi or political reference there that I am unaware of. :funny:

I think he's making fun of guys wearing pink tutus.
I am highly offended. It's my right as a man to wear a pink tutu and not feel persecuted.

Isn't it?



:funny:

What about political actions that affect the reefing community, like the recent creation of a protected area in HI or the cause of polution that affects the ocean?

You can talk about the science, but not the politics, which pretty much rules out a lot of discussion as most of those topics are all politics and very little science.

This is a reef board. It's not supposed to be "fun".

:D

We are a little more lenient when the politics are directly related to reefing, but you're not going to see discussions of global warming and the like discussed here because by their very nature they are too politically charged.

There are plenty of fun things left to talk about.
