Maybe not, Bill. But as you know, some threads beginning as "General Mountaineering Discussion" lately have morphed into something more like "Off Route". Will you and the moderators provide alert when such threads will be shunted off to "Off Route"? More work for you - we know - hopefully we will stick to thread topics so this won't be necessary.
Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatever state I am, therewith to be content - Paul the Apostle.
Like it or not, I am a slow driver. Putt ... putt ... putt ...
Good day.

Geez. Next thing we know you'll ban rustic again.
You'll be known as the forum nazi - "No politics for you!"
But on a serious note, I like the change. Nothing worse than people argueing about politics.
Now dogs, that's a different story.

Dogs/politics. Whatever. Everyone loses his/her s**t over both of them (especially rustic), they might as well be one and the same. DYBM crosses all political boundaries, though. ;)

Shouldn't that mean that live4pc dude will also go to the basement as well? He's been all over the home page lately.

I'm interested in what younger (then me) people are focusing on in the political arena. But, it wouldn't be a great loss to ban/delete anything that ventures into that area.



I read more than post here but out of curiosity, anybody have an idea of what the average user age is on this site??

BTW, moving off route = good idea.

Hmmmmm, I know I responded to this thread the other day, but it seems to be missing... :-k
"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat." (Theodore Roosevelt)
