    Exactly as it sounds, what' the point of having an "off topic" section if it's going to get moderated due to breaking rule #1?

    Is this a real question? There's plenty of off topic things to discuss. The problem is when it devolves into something political, which it usually does because someone decides to jump in with a comment like "You're hungry for baloney? Blame the liberals!" and then that statement gets countered and debated and the harmless thread about baloney gets closed. It's not that hard to figure out. Talk all you want about your processed meat, just keep the politics of your meat out of it. o_O

    so do we draw the line @ all must be firearms related, or no political talk?

    1. Non-firearm political discussion is prohibited. This rule applies to the site in its entirety.
    sez the mods. It's the rule, just is.
    What's the difference between me, mods, Joe? Permissions. Just is.
    No brag, just fact.

    what about most of the topics in "off topic" is what we are getting at. it seems like the mods just pic and choose. mostly the one that cant see.
