open discussion should be about merc's

What am I wrong here or what; open discussion ought to be about mercedes and issues about mercedes.
What does Whacko, or 'guilty of manslaughter' or whoever or what ever have to do with Mercedes?
C'mon did whacko do the whacko in a merc? no?! Then what relevence does it have an a merc site?
If I want to listen to dribble about the RNC or the DNC then.....I can go else where........but if I want to hear dribble about a Merc or a newbie Merc owner then I can come here.
Oh let me remind you that this is the open posting site and this one of the few posted that actually does fit that description........

That's why its called OD. If you want to discuss your specfic car model, go there. You don't have to come into OD if you don't feel like participating. Stop your complaint. Most of us who like political discussions already move on to Benzworld because of people like you. This was once the best forum on the entire internet in my opinion. Now I only visit once in a blue moon.

You only have 19 posts and you are already bit$#@hing, give it a rest.

Yes, unfortunately we have other interests, like lawn mowers, cooking, beautiful women, guns, airplanes, fungi, vacationing, photography, child rearing, music, guns, current events, cell phones, guns, guitars, cameras, guns, jokes, guns . . .

Is "open discussion" really that difficult of a concept for you?

Howdy MTI,
You forgot dogs. Salukis in particular. And if you make the mistake again I will take your guns away and let my dogs lick you to death :-)

Still the best forum around.

The predominance of political discussion changed to political haranguing and then got forcibly evicted and moved over to that other forum. Folks who liked that crap missed it desparately and immediately redecorated that otehr forum to their liking. Some wanted it back over here for various reasons.

The door was opened a crack over here after the Great Exodus and the haranguing started immediately, at which point the Mod harvested a bunch of personalities. They have almost all moved entirely over there. And yes I visit that site when I want to harangue or troll or be harangued and trolled. But you gotta wear your best Nomex undies.

Yeah, we still talk politics ocassionally here, but it no longer overwhelms every thread and no longer ends in folks calling each other commies and nazis and socialist and fascists and stupid, etc. About the worst you'll see is somebody saying ugly things about "liberals" whatever they are. If you like that, then by all means go to the other board where you'll find a happy home among like-minded folks.

Since you're new, you have no idea about the history of this place. You can read through previous posts to see what other folks find interesting. Maybe you could start a thread about M-B things that haven't much to do with the other forums here.

Apparently you haven't read the title description of this forum nor stickies at the top of the page. Those would be good places to start.

Welcome to OD.

Hey now, there is some good stuff in there! I have 8 million years of the things laying around. Would sell them on ebay but the shipping alone would be in the zillions.
