First time in a couple months that I have even read through the classifieds since the new rules about only certain years allowed and mandatory prices listed in every ad. Those changes seem to have taken hold in the community. I only noticed one ad in the twenty pages without a price. Ironically it was for a part that I would have considered buying had the price been posted.
So while the classifieds have become more vintage snowmobile specific I found one change on this site that I wish would go away, but economics and overhead to operate this site makes me doubtful that political ads will disappear until after the November election.
Ironically no discussion about the candidates is allowed anywhere, even in the pure BS threads,yet the site owners allow the candidates to pay a fee to broadcast their message to an audience that is forbidden to talk about them and their plans for Americans? For me I find it strange members here can't speak about politicians yet I am seeing HRC asking me to join her team at the top and bottom of every page
Hope this doesn't end up getting worse with increasing number of political ads popping up considering months ahead of us before the election.
A suggestion was made previously to create a new section where anything goes. A forum you enter at your own risk, where politics/current events could be discussed. So to the powers that be please consider such an addition to this forum, otherwise seriously consider dropping paid political content entirely on all sections of this website.
Having an invitation from the first female POTUS hopeful popping up every page on a strictly vintage snowmobile site sends a mixed message to website visitors - let alone potential advertisers that cater to old iron. Considering this website is about vintage sleds ONLY, and members are repeatedly warned no political discussion whatsoever seems hypocritical that we have exposure to political ads from any candidate?
I said the above comments with great respect for my continued use of this free site. I will continue to honor the current policies listed in the rules section and not engage in topics that are prohibited. Thank you for your consideration JOL
