Shshshsh. You are being watched. Anything you say goes out, sticks and stays in WWW. It is keyword searchable by anyone out there. Even oil, funny WTF or Russian motorcycle threads can become political. Therefore, we must have sense of limit. So, we keep away from politics, race, nationality, religion and sexual orientation (even if someone's avatar is a rainbow colored flag), wether we like it or not.

Soap box was gone when I came on and fine with me.

I am interested in Urals. A few off the rail things like stick shifts appeal as well.

Will respect any deletion that the Site Directors feel is off track.

Easy to criticize, being on the pointy end of managing a site is a tough gig. I was a pre-forum News Letter editor for a Kaypro (CPM!) computer group. Just putting out the Paper was a hard to (rewarding but I burned out after two years)

Keeping in mind this was the crude days of word processing, I had one lady tell me I could not do the missive the way I was (columns and how to created them which took a bit of slinky work) Huh ? No you can't do it that way! But I have put it out for 6 months that way. No, its impossible you can't do it hat way.

Well maam, I think you are refusing to see what is front of your eyes and I can't do anything about the rest of your problems.

I was in Soviet Steeds forum before and left after a while because of annoying political opinion manifestations and their unpleasant side effects.
Now, a couple of years later, I came back, looked around and really enjoy the situation now. So thanks for doing that step!
