Then maybe try it for awhile, you don't want to be limited to Raaaid threads on nano propulsion hyper light interstellar engines.

It might be worth a try, if it was limited to discussion of each members own country's politics with people from their own country.

Those discussions could get pretty heated, but at least the poster isn't getting flak from an outsider that really doesn't understand the politics or situations.

Yes, that makes sense

No pick of girlfriends, wife, etc. No pinups, ***, etc. There are MILLIONS of places for that and IMHO we don't need one more.

Er.....then your going to have threads with just two Finnish guys in an arm wrestling match.
The UBI off-topic board is dead because of the ban on politics. There has been a ban on political discussion on all UBI boards for sometime. The IL2 forum was an exception because it's posts outnumbered every other UBI forum by something like ten to one.

It was banned not because different nationalities argued with each other but because of the fall-out between US members after the US presidential election.

just apply the same rules as listed in the posting rules - vulgar language, vulgar images, religion, politics, etc, etc and flick the bug threads (or at least merge them with another similar in the appropriate sub board), whines, product put downs and personal attacks.


"there is one subject, which should never be discussed at a dinner party if people should wish to remain friends... and that is religion and politics."



friendly political discussion, doesn't exist, even among like-minded people... political discussion invariably becomes toxic

Pretty much everything is politics and religion by interpretation and degree.

How about no rules on topics and just arbitrarily smack down threads that get out of hand. The "no rules" policy should apply to mods as well, so simply lock threads that get out of hand and ignore all the indignant, butthurt posters that try and turn it into a mod-nazi debate.

I'm sure the mods are reasonably fair and try not to be biased but we don't need a court of law to decipher individual situations in a forum like this. Life's not fair sometimes and if you can't play here than they can cry about the unfairness somewhere else.

I mean, really, just stick to the legal stuff like overtly racist, serious and unrelenting personal attacks, pron, that kind of thing. Let the rest work itself out and don't be shy about unceremoniously locking bad threads until people lose their anarchistic tendencies and everything settles out.

In a real Pilot's Lounge (at least in an Officers' Mess) the forbidden topics are:

- Politics
- Religion
- Women
- Shop

...which pretty much rules out 90% of the interesting parts of the human condition and explains why military types are so keen on active service - anything to get away from the stupefying dullness of the mess.

Personally I'm not all that interested in what anyone thinks on those subjects, and less so imposing my views on them but I don't mind sitting on the sidelines watching people implode either.
