I don't think you really want or need me to go into detail here so I will keep this short and sweet, simply because we have a good bunch of people on this site, but please keep track of the forum rules here!
You can use this section to chat about anything you like!
It is, however, up to you police your chosen subject matter just in case of offending others. We don't mind things a little broad-minded but keep things clean(ish) in case there are younger, impressionable members on site.Here is just a re-cap of the forum rules relating to posts:Forum Use

Totally agree Chris,
Personal opinions should be reserved for and reflected when you cast your vote at elections, not on forum such as this which is just surely for sharing information.
Religion , while some would argue a cause of many wars, should not be mentioned at all. ( I don't have to declare "an interest" as I do not have a faith)
Regards Paul
Actually a slight amendment to religion. Maybe there could be tiny exceptions, say if maybe someone was writing about the native soldiers reason for objection to animal fat on cartridges Indian Mutiny time, or anything about an Ireland issue. You don't need to be offensive though, just factual.
