It does indeed sound fair.The vast majority of people and their willingness to share their knowledge are just the way we all like them to be on MT.O, and I think you've now covered off the rare occasions where things can get a bit nasty or divisive.The mods here do a great job and need no defence in my eyes at least. It's tricky to remain open and democratic and avoid accusations of censorship, whilst preventing inflammatory things from being posted and trying to keep the peace! I'm sure everyone can see that.It's only my opinion of course, but banning the discussion of things that are now proven to be divisive is absolutely the right way to go and we can all talk about tools and sharp stuff and the things we came here for in the first place.So you have my permission Seriously - keep up the good work guys. I waste invest so much time here because it is fundamentally a great place that's run well, and I think this move will help to keep it that way Def - so thanks
I hope from now on I won't have to experience intolerance from other forum member which I can only describe as ironic.
CHOCOLATE CHIP!! (That's the safety word isn't it?)
There are some people here who do not like Vic Spirits & others who think Leatherman just exist too rust .
Well one could argue that the Charge is clearly a Political name, and the Spirit, that of Religion. Hence the diverse polarity of such statements can only lead to strife and an over abundance of punch buggy! In all seriousness, I was a moderator on a forum that had a politics section. It degenerated rather quickly into a sort of quasi Anti Canadian/Anti American tug of war where people would go into the fray just to abuse the other side’s view points. It was all rather childish, and thankfully, I did not have to monitor that cesspit, er, section. I quickly concluded from actual observation, that intellectual debate is not possible from people who are secluded in the safety of their own homes. I think to have a good debate; you have to be out in the public with a bit of fear coursing through the veins to keep it all amicable.No fears Grant, You won't be catching me proselytizing on politics and religion.

Since then you have showed me intolerance(which makes you as bad as me). I am tired of this its ruining my experience here and we need to resolve it now. Maybe we can try PM or the chatroom.
