    I went to the front porch a few times, then decided the "back porch" was more to my liking. Too much hostility for me at the front porch and no real tractor talk. I can't imagine what the politics forum is like.

    I think the only bad thing is the updates don't show up in my todays posts. And there are hundreds of people who read some of those threads but never post, they are now cut out.

    The "back porch"... good one.

    Hostility is never a good thing, and topics like politics almost always serve to polarize or divide people. In fact, I've very nearly left TBN several times because of hostility, but continue to hold out hope for a positive change such as this.

    We all share a common interest in tractors and/or other related topics, and I sincerely believe that much greater emphasis should be placed there. Not just by the admins or moderators, but by all of us.

    Maybe the same could be done for posts about how to kill your pet,or catch a coyote with a treble hook. Put it under an animal abuse forum and let them have at it. This is more offensive to me than political talk.

    i think a major problem with making discussing these issues much harder is that government and politics are now a major issue with tractors and the activities they might be used. From government pollution regulations with the tractor the fuel, to land/ranch/farming regulations it's all related now. The government tried to stop farmers markets, my god we can't talk about it, I think TBN should reconsider, without an open discussion about these issues many who might not post still get a boat load of good information that they may use and become informed or aware of things that are going to directly effect them and their land/live stock/and tractor.

    Its one thing to discuss governmental issues affecting farmers.... and quite a different thing when the inevitible "your party sucks you party1/party2 insert expletive here" shows up. And that happens all too often.

    One low tech trick that saves me a little time is to quickly scan a post for either the word "genius" or "idiot".
