Due to the constant attention that is required by moderators to monitor these two subjects, as of midnight November 25, 2007, threads pertaining to Politics and Religion will become taboo subjects and as such any new threads will be deleted. Any threads currently open that pertain to these two subjects will be closed.

Much discussion has occurred behind the scenes in regards to this decision, but due to the nature of these volatile subjects and deterioration that always occurs; the consensus was to have these subjects removed from the list of permissible threads and posts.

Whilst the Lounge is a great place to wind down, the main objective of the Weatherzone Forums is to discuss the weather.

After some discussion amongst moderators, it has been decided to trial the reintroduction of religious and political threads into The Lounge.

However, please bear in mind that these threads will be subject to the same guidelines as all other threads in relation to trolling and personal attacks, so keep them out of it. In fact, we will adopt a no-tolerance approach in these threads, so any offensive behaviour of this kind will result in immediate bans.

So, feel free to start debating away again, but play nice!
