    We are seeing people bringing politics into conversations here on TrainBoard, both overtly and some which are sliding theirs in less obviously, yet deliberately. A reminder that no matter where you are on this site, politics, excepting within a railroad historical context, are strictly prohibited.

    Reference:

    https://www.trainboard.com/highball/index.php?threads/rules-for-posting.104938/

    Let us please keep TrainBoard a peaceful refuge from the pressures of life outside of our hobby.

    Thank you.

    "Peaceful refuge" is a very apt description. Unlike social media, Trainboard is actually social. There is sharing of accomplishments and ideas. People are helpful. That's a greatly appreciated rarity in this day and age and should be respected and guarded by all of us.

    What people tend to forget, sometimes 'forgetting' conveniently, is that nobody makes up rules because they have nothing else to do. The rules are posted because they represent an evolution in experience. They are meant to forestall undesirable behaviours.

    Thank you for the reminder Box, I just went through this very situation on a local hobby email thread. This is my “happy place”!

    Makes me feel old that I remember a time when politics could be and was (not every time) discussed rationally.

    We need to discuss politics rationally. Desperately.

    I am sure you'd get no disagreement. But, just not here on TrainBoard.

    The only person I talk politics to is Cynthia to keep from stepping on somebody's toes. We are on the same page.

    There is a reason for the saying "You do not talk politics or religion in polite company"
