    Any way to do it?

    I usually scroll on my phone using “new post” and I’m sick of seeing it. I don’t want it gone, just don’t want it to dominate what I see on the forum. TIA.

    Same here. You can put a person on ignore. Why not a posting site? I HATE POLITICS. This is all this site has become.
    Get on to see about hunting and fishing. Have to scroll past 50 political listings.

    Funny thing is, I think several of the posters in that forum don't even hunt.

    Many forums I am a member of do not allow any political posts.

    Meh. I post in there some. I used to more, but, honestly,, kinda realized how dumb it was. Not allowing/censoring free speech to the degree mentioned kinda bothers me.

    It’s just a handful of folks that do the majority of the political posting. Some of them don’t contribute anything for months and then start posting, again.

    Unfortunately, a lot of the political posting gets in the way of the good, educational contributions about hunting.

    I’m not suggesting censoring anyone. The political forum was created because a few folks were flooding other forums with crap unrelated to the forum.

    Let’s be honest...the hunting sub forums become as redundant and boring as the political sub forum.

    If you don’t want to see the political, simply go to the desired forum you want to read about. Turkey hunting, deer hunting, etc.

    I see both sides of this.
    I am on a forum that won't let you say the word "Coon" as in Racoon, also "Redskins" as in Potatoes and a bunch of other stuff.
    I got put in Jail once for saying the Democrats ultimate aim was to TAX Firearms.
    I have Opinions I Voice, but really try hard not to Criticize another member for saying stuff I don't agree with. And usually I Do Not....we should be Tactful at least.
    FIREARMS and HUNTING are now Political Topics of themselves. Think about That. You Better Think about it if you wish to Shoot and Hunt.

    If I owned any firearms they would identify as sling shots.

    I just think we should be able to remove or hide the ones we don't use.

    What's funny is some of them only post in the politics forum.

    How sad does one's life have to be to come to a hunting forum to only discuss politics?

    Some of it gets old, however sometimes it's informative/ serves as reminder. If you enjoy hunting and or shooting just remember it's groups of folks like us that bear the responsibility of protecting our 2nd amendment rights.
    I wish we weren't in a current state of disorder . .... Hopefully it gets bad enough to flip back .

    Believe it or not, that takes a lot of work.
