    I had never known or seen the basement and soap box places here or at SS until someone posted about them in this thread. After looking at them, it appears to be what those areas are for, off color humor and low brow talk. We're all adults here, so if you choose to go to those areas, then why whine about what's there?? Does those places represent what either of the sites are about? I personally don't think so........... And this is the internet after all, you don't have to look. I use all the sites for tech info and I do once in awhile get involved in some flaming, it's the nature of the environment............ah whatever............. :huh

    I find political name calling much like oral farting, it comes from a different place but still stinks from either side.

    Politics seem less & less about reasons behind the name calling & more about jumping on & then off the sticky soap box, which is rappidly attracting more flys than voters.

    Honestly, I had not read those post. I am more of rider/reader who likes to work on ''fix it'' jobs. I do vote & do my own research but not on MC sites for political advancement.

    I still do not consider SS members in your ''isms''.

    Soapbox should be renamed Redneck United.

    I have met many Soviet Steeds members who are not male, white, or heterosexual. My wife is part Native American.

    I find your ignorant intolerant stereotypes of S.S. members offending, like most extremists on both sides of the fence, you have become completely blind to your blatant judgmental hypocrisy.

    Shame on you. :puke1

    You are not on the SS here (funny acronym is not it? An accident maybe?) and you should keep your personal attacks where they belong... About the shame: go on and defend your racist/homophobic/xenophobic/sexist friends and check, again, who should be ashamed.

    I think what Windmill is saying, and what you just proved, is that by calling everyone on Steeds "racist/homophobic/xenophobic/sexist", you yourself are a prejudiced fool.

    There are quite a few folks who frequent both Steeds and ADVrider. Are you willing to call us "racist/homophobic/xenophobic/sexist" to our faces here? Do you have the proof to back it up?

    You gave me the right when you falsely accuse the majority for the failings of a vocal few.
    Every basket has a few rotten apples, only a hypocrite calls the whole basket rotten.

    Is it possible Pmurat is actually Oppozit in disguise?

    Sounds the same and just as quick to fling poo? :rofl

    I have never called anyone anything around here...just check before accusing.
    Again...who are you to call people not agreing with you "fools"???

    Try to have a different opinion on SS and see the, so, low reactions of the "locals"... go back on the election times, the gun control "debate" and tell me that these yelling is OK coming from, so called, adults in a normal society????

    Sorry I am not Oppozit... but if he disagree with you he must be an OK guy by me!

    Sorry Bokad to have hijacked your thread! (sarcasm)

    Really, you're going to make me quote you? That sounds like hard work! :lol3

    You just lumped the whole of Steeds into your prejudice generalizations.

    This has been my experience as well. The Soviet Steeds members whom I have interacted with in person have been great folks from a variety of backgrounds. Every Internet forum is going to have a certain amount of artificially magnified obnoxiousness. It is best to shrug it off.

    Again... (starts to be tiring!): I never called anyone on ADV anything but I am proud of having it done on/about SS for the crap shown there. If you want to mix the 2 lists it is your god-given-protected-by-the-law-right...
