I am asking the CSR moderators to consider making CSR a less hostile forum by considering being more strict in enforcing your policy of civility. I used to come to CSR to share my love of boating and the outdoors with fellow boaters. To read about and share maintenance and repair ideas and tips with other boaters. It was always fun and uplifting. The past year has been incredibly stressful on the world. A very divisive election in the US, this pandemic. And because CSR is a place where people of differing political views gather to talk about the boating lifestyle they share, its no surprise that this became a place to vent. But that is not what CSR is about. I am not talking about banning people with strong views. (God forbid that, because I would be out). But I am talking about not tolerating hostile posts and threads. And deleting threads that go that way. I also don't think CSR should allow any political threads. There is no need for CSR to turn into a political protest platform - for me or for anyone. There are lots of places to go on line and vent about political issues that have a broader audience. That is not why we gather at CSR. I always respect other people's views and their right to have them. Face to face, sitting on the dock at our marina, I would never get into a political argument with one of my friends. And we all have different political and other views. On-line forums are different though. We say things you would never say to the guy to the guy in chair next to you that you just handed a cold beer to. Virtually everyone on this forum if we ran into each other out in a cove somewhere and realized "Hey, you are XXX from CSR?" we would say "Good to meet you. Come on over for a drink.". So lets give ourselves CSR as a place to meet with friends, like we are sitting in dock chair having a few drinks.
