    In the process of answering peoples questions I then said that the shutdown is despicable, disgusting and embarrassing and that is political? That's ludicrous. EVERYONE of ALL political persuasions believes that! I took no sides and expressed NO politics whatsoever.

    First time I've ever had posts removed.

    Pete ... that's just stupid.

    Basic Scuba and a few other forums are "Green Zones" where you simply must stay on topic. Your post added no insight to dealing with the issues nor did it give any anecdotal evidence about what is happening. We could have moved the entire thread to the Pub, where your comments would have been appropriate, but the topic is important to all divers, so I cleaned it up instead. No malice was involved; only a desire to suppress political commentary in a forum where it is not allowed.

    I don't necessarily agree that my comments were political but you gotta do what you gotta do. They were somewhat off topic and added commentary. I will give you that. But they weren't political.

    You guys/gals typically do a great job so who am I to grumble.
