    Barry, the results might not be accurate because people who are not visiting tailgater are likely not going down to everything else. I think you should put a sticky post in Beekeeping Forum and Beekeeping 101 and a link to this poll. Otherwise I think you would not get a fair representation of the members.

    Question

    The poll's a good idea, but, not enough choices.

    I will check the one that says, "I would enjoy Tailgator if there was no politics or religion discussed".

    Could there be a Trashgator just for P&R that did not pop up on the New Posts list?

    I'm not aware of a control that would let me do this.

    I agree with Bill on this. This poll should be killed before too many vote and redone with this choice.

    :confused:

    I'm not sure I understand the need to start over. This poll was started and define based solely upon your comment. If it gets broadened, we'll never know if your comment was true or not. I think the Tailgater 2 poll will give us/me further insight to the membership about Tailgater. I may post yet another poll to fine tune things after these two polls have had some time.

    I neither read nor post in tailgater. I personaly see no need for such a forum, I'm here for bee information not peoples rambling opinions about the rest of the world.

    The poll should really be:

    Do the political and religious post in tailgater keep you from visiting the tailgater fourm?

    Yes
    No


    The logic is that if people visit they are more likely to post if they are there. You can't post and share if you don't visit.

    I post in Tailgater now, but would rather like it if religion and politics were banned from it.

    I don't get it. If you don't like all the political and religious threads in tailgator, just don't read them! I personally enjoy seeing all the various perspectives of my fellow citizens. The best citizen is the kind that cares, argues for his cause, and takes action.

    I haven’t and don't plan to use tailgater. There is not option on the poll for this therefore I won’t vote. I agree with the folks that don't believe a beekeeping forum should be anything other than just that. I would suggest that if people want to discuss ANYTHING other than valid beekeeping issues they can simply go to another forum. I see the hate and contention that is fostered in the tailgater forum spill over to all the other forums. I am afraid human nature is such that if you disagree on things like religion and politics then you will have a hard time agreeing on beekeeping. I see this happen all the time at work and in the family. Get rid of the tailgater and then you don’t need to make controversial decisions on whether to censor on not censor it.

    >>>>I haven’t and don't plan to use tailgater. There is not option on the poll for this therefore I won’t vote.<<<<

    This is why we need more choices. I'm thinking many WILL vote, just because they don't use tailgater and still won't use it if it is changed to exclude R&P.


    Those shouldn't be voting at all. Leave the voting for the ones that actually fit one of the two categories.

    I thought tailgater was started to keep P&R out of the other forums.

    You are kidding, right? If you don't like the banter, why are you in the middle of it? It takes all types...

    You are kidding right?
    Roll your eyes all you want...I will just roll them back... I will rephrase it for you... Yes I do post in it... and yes I am in the middle of it...why because I have my views too. But I am also understanding of others. So a tailgate 2 would be what, in my view, we need. One that doesn't come up with the other lists of posts and if we choose to click on that, then we are wanting to go there. Yes or no? So to answer your question, NO I am not kidding!
