Sex, Politics or Religion?

"Yes please?" I hear some say...

Following certain recent political developments, the Admin Team have spent a considerable amount of time mopping up and I would like to remind our members that the subjects in the thread title are to be avoided where at all possible. The reason is simple - they lead to heated discussion, followed by personal abuse and finally someone ends up getting called a Nazi. I'd like to add Etecs to that list as well but hey ho!

Currently the format is that a member posts some guff about, let's say "Sexit" and we then have to remove it and send a polite reminder to the member. The member then pens a snotty PM back saying how it isn't really about Sexit and then huffs. A few days later they post even more guff about "Sexit" and we have to remove it and send them a snotty warning back. Some will then post MORE guff about "Sexit" and we agree to let them have a quiet spell offline to reflect on the error of their ways. This is often interpreted as a "Ban" but it's really just "Time out"

I for one have more things to be doing so I'm just putting it out there that I won't be doing any more polite PMs and I'll be moving straight to the 24 hour Time outs.

I've hit the post reply button but we will see what happens

Is mopping up a nautical term?

Your original post was my inspiration to comment here and I appear to have accurately predicted the contents of your PM.

You are in complete control of your own Destiny...
