    Default Announcing POTUS Place

    Since it is obvious that folks will want to talk politics in the gallery, we've created POTUS Place - a new forum to discuss politics.

    http://www.retrievertraining.net/for...splay.php?f=41

    Users must stay true to RTF culture. Pornographic, defamatory, uncivil, illegal, hateful and otherwise unproductive coments are unacceptable. Such misuse of the resource can and will result in banning of individuals in violation.

    Please keep your political debate, discussions, and dialogue on the POTUS Place forum.

    Thanks and have fun!

    Chris

    Thanks Jeff! I knew you would. And you are not the only one.

    I take it that this does not apply to political comment included in one's signature line like this one posted this morning.

    Well by golly I wondered where POTUS would next surface ....since I am a regular listener to POTUS08 on XM (the founder of sponsor Zogby International is John Zogby and he is a cousin of mine) and understand it would soon be coming to an end; I was already starting to have withdrawals....and who would have thunk it would end up on RTF....seriously, I think it is an excellent idea and hope everyone will post their political leanings on the new space

    For the past few months I thought it unwise for Evan to put such strong political commentary in his signature line. He makes a living dispensing his expertise via this website, others like it, mixed media and word of mouth. Why would you turn off half of your potential paying customers with your political views? Not a great marketing move.
    And I think the new political forum was long overdue. Thanks!
