Re: Was CAD serrvices - Now Political

The list administrator has specifically requested that we refine from discussion of politics & religion for good reason.  I'm still waiting for you to cross the line one time too many & get tossed off.  If you need a little help on an "acceptance criterion" try this:  If you criticize/praise Bush or Kerry by name in the middle of  the presidential campaign it's probably polititical. But YMMV

Sorry, but this just is NOT realistic! You can’t “pick and choose” what is and what is not “political” and thus subject to your acceptance criteria.


We talk about a lot of issues on this list that are “political”—job outsourcing, adoption of building codes, etc. It is less than a month until the general election in the U.S. where we will select a President, all congressional representatives and a third of the Senators—not to mention various governors, legislators, etc.


It is unreasonable to expect that this isn’t going to come up from time to time.


Frankly, I get more annoyed by the “don’t start this cr*p again” posts than I do by the so-called “political” ones, even those that espouse views contrary to my own.
