This is just a friendly reminder to please leave politics off the forum, regardless of what they are or where they’re from.
I think it’s safe to say that most people come to the forum to get away from politics and the other junk in life and talk about something we’re excited about like tenkara, with other people who share that with us; regardless of where they live or what they believe.
I also understand we are all living with the effects of COVID19 and the decisions of those in power, wherever we live in the world. Regardless of what our worldview is or where we live, there’s plenty to be unhappy about right now. We all need a happy escape, albeit temporary.
Please, for the mental peace of us all, let’s try and keep politics to a minimum. One reason I think this forum is successful is because people here are so friendly, open and, generous. In other forums that I’ve been on in the past, politics is often where things turn ugly. Let’s leave politics to the politicians, or at least to other outlets.
