Sure some people post things that rile me a bit, or dont agree with my view of the world, most of the time I simply dont comment, as it would only "stir the pot".
I look forward to reading this forum, things do get political from time to time, but given the current state of the nation / world events I think I can see why.
At the end of the day, it's all about choice, if you dont like a thread dont read it or contribute to it, there is enough crap going on in the world at the moment, this forum is a way of letting off steam.
I agree this board is fundamentally to talk about bikes, but it is never going to be 100% bike talk, and I am sure that if Mart "the snip" was still with us some threads would have been cut.
Just my 2 penneth, and clearly others have different views.
