Default Do We Need A Discussion Section?

Would anyone here like to have a discussion forum/section? This should clear some of the other sections of posts that result in threads being locked. Let's face it-there's a lot of things going on in the Country that may have serious consequences for us, as shooters/collectors, etc. Sometimes it's hard to not make comments in threads--that others see as off-topic, unrelated to the original question, etc. Most of us are adults here, and a discussion section, with a clear set of rules(like the ROE in the M-14 forum), maybe a post count(50?)to participate, is something would like to see implemented here. What do you guys think?

Charlie

Good Idea, allow people to vent. It would be entertaining as well as informative

Lightbulb Kiss;

Keep It Simply Simple; I like this place because it provides information related to these old "guns". There are other places to dis&cuss topics of the day. Places where "the gloves are off" as they say. Personally I don't need that. I'm civilized as I tell my wife. Okay, at least I'm house-broke. I'm not here to argue.

Im pretty sure that it's been said plenty that the operators of this forum do not want that type of talk here.

That's what I have read many times here.

Funny, the majority say they don't want a discussion thread yet they are all over the place on this forum, people talking military service, talking about other subject on a thread then what the op intended. Talking about subjects other then firearms.

I guess we really don't need it, we already have it.

when discussing politics,even gun related political issues,it doesnt take much for it to turn into a full blown argument that goes on and on.

But, don't you think that arguments should be on a dedicated thread section then changing the subject of the OP

That's why I did the poll. I know some members get upset when someone goes off-topic, and I think some moderators do as well. It looks like the feeling many have about a general discussion section automatically means it's nothing more than an a venue to start political arguments. I don't know about anyone else, but I have every now and then thoughts other than about muzzle wear, or whether or not it's safe to shoot corrosive ammo. A lot of us here are on quite friendly terms with one another, and I enjoy talking with you guys. If I was planning on buying a new vehicle, for example, I would like to get feedback from the membership in general, not just from one or two folks, via PMs. Just my .02.
