    You got your own nice and friendly way to say goodbye to all of us who can´t participate there anymore, Siegfried !!

    I notice that it says "Charter Member" by your nick name !!

    It´s almost like in real politics, isn´t it ??

    If you don´t want to pay, you haven´t got the right to a political opinion !!

    NICE !





    Yes it does say charter member by my name. I am not posting in the politics section since the election and have not decided whether or not to renew my charter membership. I didn't tell any of you goodby I merely explained why you may be having troubles. I expect that the cost to you to get a one-year charter membership will be down to about 5 Euros in the next three months. Give the man a month after he takes office and that should about do it. siegfried schlagrule

    Marc said the politics forum had caused him to loose sponsors, and thats pretty bad!

    I didn't realize either of the 2 major parties was a sponsor ! Hard to imagine a manufacturer caring one way or the other about peoples opinions on politics............. even more so, if a sponsor was politically sensitive enough to threaten (relatively) free speech with pulling their ad, I (in my usual pig-headed manner) would have said "Adios Amigo, this is America - you can disagree with someones opinion, but paying me to squelch it is another matter"

    Couple of reasons for the stalwarts being gone. Maybe they don't want to invest time and effort into something that can go away at the push of a button and has gone away two or three times in the last year. Maybe also the stalwarts just don't want to begin acting like a bunch of liberals by spending the next four years whining about the guy that won. siegfried schlagrule
    the report posts button is still there. right under ignore user, above nominate for banner.

    Very interesting, Trish !?!!?

    And the NON-Charter-Members have caused this problem only, or what ... ??

    If the Political forum was such a big problem, why not close it completely ??

    Re: Am I imagining this ???

    Let's be realistic here. $20 a year is not much to pay for what we get. As with anywhere those that pay rent have more priveledges then the guests in the home and the owner of the home has all priveledges as they own it. The rubber room creates more work than any portion of the site which adds to the expenses of maintaining the site. If you keep the rubber room you contain those issues within one area and if you limit how many people are there then it is easier to maintain. Marc does not owe us any section of the forum but he does allow us access to every room in the house except a couple without paying any rent at all and charges a very miniscule fee for full access to his entire home here. There are several personal page areas that are allowing political posts so there is obviously no conspiracy to silence even those that do not wish to pay rent. This is not a publicly owned forum, it is Marc's forum and home so even if I don't agree with everything he does I know it is his choice to set the rules in his home and also which rooms everyone is allowed to move their things into. I have not discussed any of this with Marc so I can't say what his reasoning is behind the changes as far as access but this is my opinion on the subject. I rarely post in the rubber room myself but I do enjoy reading there frequently and I love this site and the people here. I rarely agree with Marc on politics yet he still puts up with me. lol I enjoy the company of all the members of treasurenet and hope to continue to do so for a long time. Let's go find some treasure and try to get along. Love you guys!

    This was a particularily nasty election this year. The, "Board" of Cooper Rifles of America, kicked it's founder off the, "Board" when he voiced his support for one of the presidential nominees!! So nothing would surprise me.

    Re: Am I imagining this ???

    IMO this is NOT the best of times to drop participation in discussing politics among ourselves simply because the election is over.

    The ONLY defined policy of the new CEO is change.
    A radio person just stated the CEO's website just removed the entirety of the platform previously mentioned.

    In the near future will we be allowed to metal detect on ANY public property?
    Will we be allowed to retrieve ANY object older than 10 years, or 20 years?
    What objects may be determined to be of historical interest and subject to confiscation?
    Who will make that decision?
    Will there be a fee for metal detecting? There is for dredging!
    Perhaps metal detectors will now become directly regulated by the FCC, and owners licensed?
    Will we be allowed to research govt records using FOIA when treasure hunting?
    With the volatility in exchange rate of our dollar, will those of us who prefer a foreign built detector still be able to purchase one?

    There's a whole raft of very important political decisions coming down the pike, folks.

    I would sure enjoy discussing them with you, here on Tnet, where we share a common interest.

    You are more than welcome to post such discussions as those you just mentioned that directly relate to treasure hunting in my room here on treasurenet rmptr. I would think those are some very important topics to all of us. In fact I will start a thread for ya if you want.

    He didn't say the current sponsors threatened to leave he said that new sponsors refused to come on board. If you're looking for suspects look at the list of sponsors and see who is not there. siegfried schlagrule

    Babysitters get paid. Many in the Rubber Rooms acted like children with an attitude problem. Guess Marc decided he was tired of babysitting for free.

    Stop crying about non members and dish the $20 out of your pocket, or are you waiting for us to pay for you. Like share the wealth?!

    If you don´t want to pay, you haven´t got the right to a political opinion !!
    ==================================================
    Or maybe, like most liberal ideas, just complain enough about the $20 it takes
    to become a charter member & maybe someone will pay it for you. Or the new
    socialist administration about to take office will tax all us charter members to give
    others free life time membership to T-net.
