Default Is it possible to have any discussions with out politics involved?

I have to say I'm a bit disappointed that the investments forum was shut down. I thought it was a great place for us to exchange investment ideas. I tried my best to contribute in a positive fashion as I gave many stock market recommendations on here and I know a few of you benefited. I guess all good things must come to an end.

I, for one, do not believe in talking politics, but those #### lefties just can't help themselves!

Actually, in many ways, politics, religion and finances go hand in hand with gambling, but I have promised not to talk these verboten subjects on the Forum. Still, so long as the nexus to gambling, more specifically, AP play, can be held, the discussions should be allowed to ensue, despite some persons' distaste for anything that is not AP, the whole AP, and nothing but the AP. It's kind of a myopic, one-dimensional view of advantage play IMHO, but then, the world does include one-dimensional people, as well as two, three, four and more (I'm thinking of the Zen Zone), and it does avoid much of the personal attacks and heated, disruptive rhetoric, but then, that seems like the real world, if you think about it. Anyway, I have agreed to live in this sliver of reality, sort of like going to church, or maybe more like going to math class, philosophy class, and accounting class at different and exclusive times. If life is a university, then Blackjackinfo.com is one of the courses offered. I will not speak finances... I will not speak finances... I will not speak finances... I will...

I am in favor of discussions on subjects that do not result in vulgar, personal attacks. Unfortunately, those subjects did not work here. And, I really think the subject should be dropped instead of looking backward in an effort to assign blame.
