I'm a firm believer it's Bert's play ground so we should play by his rules if we want to play here.
I agree. I didn't see your comment until ColinB pointed it out. Racist remarks should be the first thing to go.

Eh, a kinder and gentler xlforum couldn't have come at a better time. My subscription expired last month and I was waiting for the new year to renew.

Guess this is it for me. Thanks for everything and I'm gone.

I hate to hear that, I always enjoyed your On The Bus stories.

More proof you can never make everyone happy. Kudos to all for a civil discussion of the changes.

If you decide to leave just because Bert asks folks not to post about religion or politics and not post nudie pics then so be it. This is supposed to be a forum dedicated to Sportsters and Buells. I do not see how the above outlawed posts has anything to do with either.

I stopped coming here regularly not because Bert set new guidlines, but because he offered a private way to discuss taboo topics without disrupting the forum, then yank it away for what seems like pretty lame reasons. There was a lot of freedom in that, IF you chose to participate. To assume people are balking at the new rules is wrong. It is not the rules as much as it is having PC rules become the only option. This forum is no different than HD Talking now. Bert went the extra mile by making super off topic available for those men who want to express themselves like men. Now we have no choice but to communicate like old women in a quilting bee. I'm just letting my subscription expire, but I will still visit if I need help. After all, the consensus in this thread is that's all the forum is for these days.

Agreed. If someone chooses to leave that is their loss. I'm happy having a place to talk about riding with like minded individuals.

I see both sides of it to a point; if Bert had no other choice to make the changes due to possible legal ramifications then that's a no brainer (some XLF is better than no XLF). However, as Baphomet hit upon, I think people are tired of--in society as a whole--the few being placated to at the expense of the many.

And, it often has a snowball effect...I could realistically see the "Shotgun Porn" thread going away because someone is uncomfortable with guns and they feel like it's a hostile forum environment due to the presence of the thread.
