The reason that political threads just vanish not simply locked or deleted is that it prevents drive by political sniping. Where someone makes a political topic and the title hangs around in the forum locked or deleted.

We move such threads to the moderator lockerroom. Political posts in the wrong section by supporting members get moved to the political forum. Non-sm get vanished. This prevents posting there by default.

There is some judgement calls when it comes legal or activism issues as we currently have any open to all subforum for that type of topic. It general requires the issue to be firearm or second ammendment related. Such as ccw laws oc laws awb laws along with cases involving court decisions and trials.

Some trials like zimmermans are purely political and need to be in politics or controversy.

This applies to conspiracy postings as well.

The FTF is the best run forum that I have seen, the Mods. do a good job of allowing us freedom while keeping it in line. I wish Washington would take some lessons here!!!!!

This IS- first and foremost- a GUN forum. Politics is secondary.

Is the original poster a supporting member? No? Good day.

Frankly, this supports the point that was made by Admin in restricting access to Politics to supporting members.

Now if y'all will excuse me, I will go see if I can find someone else to hurt their feelings. Busy evening already.
Does the forum still use PayPal exclusively? If so you won't see a dime from me no matter how much I believe in what you are doing here. I have never had a PayPal account and I never will, but I will be glad to make other arrangements. Please PM me if there is another option.

Please accept my apology for being off topic.
