    LOL. You moderators haven't done anything in those Covid threads. This is mild comparatively speaking. Since I don't have anything to say about rates these days, knock yourself out.

    It's difficult to discuss any subject these days without there being some kind of political slant to it. Seems like those idiots in charge of almost every state and in DC won't let us forget that they have us by the gonads regardless of if we like it or not.

    I believe one of them did, just not the person who won.

    Oops sorry, I'm done with political talk.

    I agree with you, it's very difficult not to let politics creep into our threads. We need to try though. Politics cause arguments and the arguments always escalate. Then the insults start and they also escalate. Pretty soon we have a real gong show where there was once a nice peaceful thread. Members who otherwise never cause any problems become bug-eyed wild men when political arguments start. Then the staff has to hand out infractions and even ban people who we'd rather hold on to.
    Believe it or not, the vast majority of TTR members don't want to see a lot of political garbage cluttering up their forum. They let us know about it too.
    We have the Political Forum for political discussions. It's lightly moderated but for the most part you can rant and rave and foam at the mouth and insult anybody that doesn't agree with you on almost any topic.

    So, because you aren't actively engaged in trucking any more and don't discuss rates it's okay to send this thread to Political? Never mind the fact that a lot of the guys use the thread to communicate and compare rates and trends? Just get rid of it because you personally don't need it ?
    I think not. This is a good thread for the most part and whether you're here or not really doesn't make any difference. If the thread follows the rules the thread stays right where it is.

    How about holding a standard to certain members who spend half their time on this forum insulting each other, calling anything and everything "fake news", avatars that depict Donald Trump as a Hitler, etc.

    You were a punk for placing my first thread into the political section anyways.

    What are you going to do now, ban me? LOL
     
    BoostedTeg Thanks this.

    Well, I wasn't planning on it but the more I think about it the better it sounds.

    You're out of line Scooter. Starting a thread on any given subject doesn't give you ownership and moderator rights to the content once you start it. As REO said, a lot of us use this thread to share useful information. Stop throwing a hissy fit over the original thread getting moved. It's old news and everybody else seems to have moved on.
