All religious and political talk is now banned

Folks from here on in there will be no religious or political talk on this site. Sadly a few childish individuals have forced this. I appreciate there have previously been excellent threads such as the UK leaving Europe which has stimulated some excellent chat, but a few have ruined it.

First time offenders will get a short ban.

Repeat offenders will be permanent.

Re: All religious and political talk is now banned

Good to hear! Gets annoying seeing daily sparing between members about conflicting religeous/political views.

Yes, but you should agree that in the last months each time there is a political/religious thread/post a big, endless quarrel starts and this is not possible in a website regarding spotting, airplane models and airports.
Personal offenses start, the clash never comes to a conclusion because political ideas and religious beliefs are strictly personal and subjective, the same for the sensivity of each of us.

You ll keep losing members, good luck trying to create a forum that doesn't have quarrels like most forums do.

Same Speedbird48 harassed irish777 for posting stuff on the "too funny" thread bc he didn't think his memes were funny.
Guess what? Irish777 doesn't post anymore.

I'm done posting on the "too funny" thread as well.

There are places in the world where you get thrown in jail for making fun of religions or their leaders and politicians. Here you get banned. Speedbird48 got his wish.

Re: All religious and political talk is now banned

Maybe you can continue to give your important contribution to Wings900 website and, in particular, to this thread, without posting religious/political pics or arguments but just things related to airplanes and civil aviation world, don't you think?

Re: All religious and political talk is now banned

Just wonderful
You guys should go on and also lock up or at least delete several posts on that "Too Funny" thread.

I swear I get cancer just by opening that thread.

How do you know now it's been sorted out we may well get more people join if they see they don't have to read all that...I'm on a couple of forums with zero tolerence for religion and politics and it's nice and relaxed with loads of members,never know we might even get some of the vets coming back....

Thank God (does that count as religious?) this has ended, maybe you should also ban sexual offenses against women or minorities.

I think I can live with this, it does tend to sour the enjoyment of the rest of the forum sometimes.

Re: All religious and political talk is now banned

Liberals/ socialists usually cant deal with opposing views, a good example is the "too funny" thread when members posted memes making fun of Trump, they didn't need their safe space, once i started posting pro Trump memes, it became a problem. Hahaha

This forum is mostly liberal, look at the Brexit poll and how out of touch most members are, the majority here though the UK was staying.
If a pro Trump meme upsets you to the point that you can't enjoy your hobby, you need help.
