Can I block the Political Forum?

Every time I find myself drawn into that hole of inane drivel and juvenile pissing contests, I end up with negative attitudes about the site and members. Any way to block it so that it does not continue to diminish the enjoyment I've gotten from this fine site??????

Just do what I do......just say no.

I haven't been in there in weeks......you just gotta stay away from it.

I don't walk around all angry anymore either

I pop in and out, been in there way less lately. Its like Groundhog day in there sometimes. Good guys.... bad topics.

Simple solution,, don't scroll down.

Stick with the forums on the top 1/2 of the page, or bookmark the particular forums you like, and go straight to them without ever seeing the main page.

We have a Political Forum? I thought it was just bleed over from Grumpy Old Pharts.

Maybe we should password protect it with "Hope", yeh, hope will fix everything

Next year we'll have Bitchfest after Plugfest... Buckmann and Spence square off

Seriously, dunno, do you really need something that blocks it from view? Just felt that moving it out of Scuppers was sufficient.

It's pretty bad in there. Spence's conservative views on male domination and flat out racist remarks have really turned me off.

It's like driving by a car accident, the traffic slows, you swear your not gonna look,
