This thread has transformed the bimmerfest experience for me. No longer am I wading into a sea of political mudslinging...it's almost like I'm visiting a car forum now.

I'm so happy I could

It's amazing, isn't it?

I have an IE button for when I want car related info (ie, no OT or PolySci) .

and when I'm really bored I can always click the "NewPosts" button to see people throwing flawed, partisan arguments back and forth!

Seems like a lot of people are bidding good-bye to the PolySci board with this URL trick -- is it that you guys don't want the board at all, or you would just prefer not to see it as part of the "New Posts" experience?

I'll just look at it occasionally by itself now and again. A little goes a long way...

Let them have their fun. There's obviously a bunch of people that visit bimmerfest because of it.

As long as I don't have to see it, what do I care?

I'd just as well not see it here period, and possibly save the owners some hosting costs, but since there are clearly some that spend the majority, if not all, of their time there, I guess there is a demand to be satisfied (but I would assume there are forums just for this stuff around), and if the owners want to continue it, having a way for those of us who don't want our 'Fest-ing experience to be interspersed with a bunch of this, should have an option to opt out.

This way, I won't be mistakenly lead into posting when the thread happens to (not start off as) a Bush v Kerry or Limbaugh v Franken thread.

It's useful information, leave it be. Or maybe sticky it in site suggestions.

I have no problem with it being here. I was just if others were bothered. OT does get the most traffic, so I'd think it's the best place to leave it.
