Why do people feel the need to discuss this in a motorcycle forum? There are literally hundreds of political forums on the web - why not discuss it in one of those?
And if it must be discussed here, then why not do it in a more appropriate place? Can this possibly be moved to the "Random Thoughts" forum?
This is precisely the kind of contentious topic that promotes friction among the forum community, polarizing and factionalizing the very people that it is supposed to bring together.
Call me crabby (or whatever else you wish), but can't we focus on the topic at hand: the Hayabusa?
