    Exactly. And that is what we are trying to get a handle on here. None of the admins or mods wants to be heavy handed, but there are/were some people who try to see what they can get away with.
    I am a husband, father, and grandfather. I am not a prude or a saint, but some of the language here I would not want my loved ones (or anybody else) to see.
    This forum should be family friendly, G-rated, in my own personal opinion.

    As Denton mentioned above, talks have been going on about having a section for members only that would be hidden from public view and would require conscious effort to enter.

    I agree, things were getting pretty far out there. There was a lot of stuff on here that I wouldn't want to expose my daughters to and so I haven't been mentioning much to them of this site. Some folks use the internet to be a horses patootie just because they can and, if they did it on the street the way they've been here they likely would be missing a few teeth. Just my opinion. I've have been considering whether I wanted to stick around or not also.

    Current events in the news trends of our government play a big roll in our preps. They effect timing and routes we choose to go in. While many of us prep more for natural disasters we can not hide from social unrest. Often what is going on is hidden from many. Balance is needed in all things but locking out conversation of current events in our Government is sure to haunt us all.

    Given the names on my Ignore list, I would say "are" not "were".

    All Troll posts should be moved to this "hidden" forum, and be available for Roasting.

    I think we've all been known to get off topic from time to time. Even though this is a preppering site, it's good rattle on about something else once in a while, even post some music videos, and have some lite hearted posts.
    Whenever I come to this site, I scan down the topics and open the ones I want to read, I have no trouble skipping over the ones that don't interest me. If the admins want to make another room, thats fine, if it stays the way it is, well thats fine with me too. Wow, took me a lot of words not to say anything didn't it?

    How about the Camo room. Would certainly make it "hidden" with a name like that.

    I dont know what went on in the last few days and Im at a point after what happened over at the Marlin Owners forum that I am going to not care, but there were at least 3 people that are now gone that I liked very much and I will miss seeing them post.

    As far as why threads get off topic is just human nature, I have been a member on at least 12 forums over the years and have never once seen a thread stay on topic... I like to see threads take on a life of their own... its like real life, If you talk to your wife or husband about 1 topic you would get bored very quickly with talking to them.

    Like I said, I could go anywhere. I have what I consider friends here. I'll be here, I'll be at the other place. I can do both. If anybody wants my opinion, just ask, becouse Deebo is Deebo.

    Denton, could you derail this thread, and put it up for me?
