In our everyday lives we have real relationships with our family and friends face to face.
We speak everyday language and "slang" with them and share common beliefs, both political and religious.
These common beliefs can be discussed freely in that environment because we already know that they are shared with the company that we keep.
Once we are in company that might NOT share our opinions however, things get a bit "dicey".
When that "company's" main goal is to be helpful to a crowd looking for specific information about a specific topic, then the success of that "company" relies on it's ability to supply help to the crowd.
We here at the forum do our best to supply help but a side effect,, or a by product (if you will) is that friends, or even families
begin to form.
Now, we have a family from all over the globe that dose not share the same beliefs, political views or religion.
The only way to keep these differences from destroying us is to simply not discuss them, and it must be strictly enforced.
We are a family, but our politics, religion, and beliefs MUST be kept out of our discussions.
We all understand that we have different opinions about things but they have no place here.
And for good reason.
