As much as I respect this board, and the way it's run, the increasingly evident efforts to avoid leanings towards "political" comments is self defeating to the RVing public that is the REASON for the existence and operation of this board and others like it!

The fact is, THIS thread clearly concerns the behind the scenes political and profit-making efforts of individuals and groups whose interests and goals are NOT particularly with the RVing public in mind!

Stifling or elimination of discussion and/or protest of actions by those individuals and groups by RVers like those on THIS board, this thread, serves only to ignore and indirectly support and encourage those damaging acts, and in the longer term, erode the very participation in RVing and operation of THIS board.

If this isn't considered a proper forum, or proper topic - where/what IS?

When/if RVing is damaged, so is this board and those who own and use it - and IGNORING issues, especially political ones, doesn't make them go away!

Rules are Rule, click here to read our Community Rules. We do our very best to maintain a collegial atmosphere here and while it's true that this topic impacts RVers, the problem is that the name calling and partisan issues often sidetrack good discussions. Let's try to stay focused here and on topic as Gary already suggested. Thanks for understanding.
