We are in the midst of the political season and it seems reasonable to bring this forum back.
1. This is a temporary thing. From past experience, we know this is going to be focused mostly on American politics. Once this current election season is over, the forum will most likely disappear again. It can always resurface at a later date.
2. If you are posting here, don't come crying to us if you got your feelings hurt. Strong opinions are probably going to be expressed. If you can't take the heat get out of the kitchen. This forum can be rough.
3. Do report new people signing up to troll this forum. They will be banned immediately. If you are not going to contribute to the snowboarding tribe, you are not going to contribute here. We know who our long standing members are. Go find a forum that specializes in politics.
4. Don't make this a headache for us. See #2
. If it becomes a hassle for us, we reserve the right to inactivate it whenever we please.
In all we've had some spotty results with this forum. Donutz and myself will probably not express a whole lot in the threads in here. Previous admins got hurt feelings over reactions to their opinions. Again see point #2
Maybe this is a bad idea, maybe not. We'll give it a try.
