Welp, here we are again. I just nuked an entire thread that could have been useful. It was ruined for several reasons, but all of those reasons involved politics. The original poster's avatar was political and several replies in the thread were blatantly political.

As a reminder, this forum has a ZERO TOLERANCE for political discussions, avatars, or even alluding to politics in any way. Period.

Thanks. It amazes me how many people don't get it. Shame the original thread had to be deleted.

They ruin it for everyone else, and it's really not a difficult concept.

The original poster's avatar was offensive. The same poster has used offensive avatars in the past. I don't see any reason to consider a post to be useful when it is coming from someone like that. After checking I can see that the avatar has been changed to the default. Thank you.

As I said, the follow-up replies were also politically motivated. In the future, the best course of action is to use the report function associated with the offending post, instead of engaging with trolls. You folks would likely catch it before I do, so the reporting tool is helpful in having it removed quickly.

It is tempting to try to slip in a little bit of politics BUT I REMEMBER the old days when P&R was allowed.  Things could go downhill incredibly fast on both sides of whatever the main topic was.  The ensuing name calling could get as ugly as a witch riding a vacuum cleaner.

Agreed. It is indeed difficult to hold back. But as you pointed out, it can get ugly quickly. And it got REAL ugly many, many times prior to 2012 before I removed all P&R.

Sorry, it's hard not to engage; especially in these tumultuous times...

And then, I feel like a tattle tale; nobody likes a tattle tale, Cindy. 

I'll be sure to use the Dougie filter, next Time
