    Well, speaking for myself, I have learned things from some of those posts. Mostly about human nature, but learning none the less.
    I belong to other forums. This one is by far the best and very active. I just took a quick look at one that has stringent rules. Four new posts today. :( 12 members on line. 4 of which are moderators. Not to exciting.
    Anyway. Sorry you feel upset about it.

    It is not my impression that you are... That said, your rationalizations in regards to this matter --are same to be taken seriously[?]-- imply gross underestimation (and, hence, insult) of my (and other's) intelligence...

    General 'permeation' by polarization and otherwise 'bad feeling' (among the 'active kernel') secondary to the 'free-for-all threads' is beyond obvious!:rolleyes: - @ronv, Being, as you are, an (otherwise) constructive, emotionally mature contributor, I'm bound to say I find your denial (IMO feigned ignorance) of same curious...:confused:

    If you are referring to the banter between @Jazz2C , @Aleph(0) and myself - you may rest assured it's friendlier than it may at times appear;) -- IOW there is neither insult nor abuse where offense is neither intended nor taken...:)

    So... Might I inquire as to what constructive purpose you imagine is satisfied via provision for political discussion on this site?:confused::confused::confused:

    Best regards

    Yebut this site is concerned with electronics and, to a lesser extent, general physical science --- 'Study' of contention, personal rancor and, indeed, hate weren't part of the deal!:(

    So... Once again:

    #1rule.No flamewars if you say something that creates this then yo are wrong. Adults can argue in a civil manner. Happens all the time.

    Where politics is concerned, I respectfully disagree!:rolleyes: In any event, there is precious little 'civility' on those threads!:eek:

    So... 'No Politics' 'No Politics' but 'No Flamewars' = 'No Flamewars' -- Guess that's clear enough:confused::confused::confused:

    Inasmuch as equality is no longer (necessarily) transitive 'round here, I'm bound to inquire as to whether similar re-interpretation of "No Transformer-less power supplies" is in with a chance?;)

    Best regards

    I think we need to start following Linus's rules There are three things that I've learned never discuss with people: religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin. If we followed them people would be much :)er.
