    Too Hot to Handle

    We are running into some topics on the forum that have nothing to do with scuba... and that's not really anything new... but they are also hot topics where people have strong opinions.

    In discussing some of these topics, like Health Care, Guns, Politics, etc...

    people get a little more worked up, than say a discussion on split fins....

    While it's true, people can choose to look at any thread they wish, we want to make it a bit easier for people to avoid the "Hot button Topics" if they wish.

    So when there is a discussion that gets a bit more heated, we are going to move it to a new Forum area called Too Hot to Handle.

    To go into this area... you must ask to be a member of the Too Hot group:

    How To View!


    Go into your User CP (near the upper left hand side of the screen)
    Then scroll down on the left hand side, under Miscellaneous, you will see Group Membership. Just go in there and choose to Join the Hot Topics Group.



    I would suggest you only go there if you like more heated discussions, have a thick skin, and want to go to a forum with a little less moderation.

    The topics will not even show up in your searches if you do not want to wade into the "Hot Zone"... So it's up to you.

    How is health care or politics any more volitile than a BP/W discussion???

    I don't get it - and of course I want access!!!!

    Isn't spending hours blinding fighting with people that you only know by such names as "The_Living_Legend" or SarahPalinRocks" why Al Gore invented the internet, or do you think he just wanted people to pimp scuba gear????

    You're getting old and cranky, my friend.

    Thanks ... some of those threads are like train wrecks ... you shouldn't look, but you can't help yourself, then you're pissed or upset when you do! (AND then you have to talk yourself out of posting a reply!!)

    Sooooo ... put me on the list that if I break down and ask for access, just tell me NO!

    Scott, I just dont understand why you even bother to make BC's any more??

    Larry the "to hot to handle" thread is a great idea. This is used on a another forum I frequent for backcountry skiers when snowboarders show up and want to join the "conversation".
    With the privilege of diving, comes the responsibility of conservation. If you dont like this signature I DONT CARE!!!!!!!!
