Change the description of this forum?

I notice this forum for "Open Discussion" is supposedly for "anything you want ... except politics." But the three of the six stickies are political and so are several of the most active threads.

Just wondering if maybe that forum description should be updated ...

Had a trainwreck and still sorting-out the bodies. The instructions from the Mod on High is to limit politics to three sticky threads. Violators maybe mildly tolerated or banished, depending on the whimsy of the Mods.

It's just one of those routine acts of denial in which we engage daily. There's nothing like a good lie to make life easier.

The original intent of this forum was to discuss cars other then MB's.

So maybe we should call it the "everything but MB, politics, and all around bad taste threads forum" I don't think this title would fit on the main page so for the sake of simplicity we call it Open Discussion.

How about "Wankers, Whiners, and Rapeseed Oil?"

But politics is so much fun!
Without cars and politics - would life be worth living?


Ok, Ok, - add women in there.
