The main thrust of the site will always be leasing and drilling information. With that said, I have noticed several political discussions popping up.
Reply with YES or NO; should we add a political group?
*If added the discussions for this group would not be on the homepage where the main page forum currently is displayed.
I would have to say no . While i agree politics plays a large role in life in general, being hidden behind the safety of a computer allows for some to behave in a manner best suited for a child. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".
Yes it should. The people of this site deserve to know how they are or are not being represented by their elected officials. It would also make for good reading if knowledgeable, intelligent people had something to say.
Politics have much to do with the O/C industry. How will we know how all the rules will relate to us if we cannot access the information here? I think most of us are trying to make educated decisions as to what we do concerning leases, royalties and how they will affect us.
What we need to be careful of is to not start calling each other idiots if we dont agree with what someone has said! Giving both sides of a question and inputting your feelings without making it a personal would help us all to make a satisfactory decision I think.
