How About A Contractor Talk About Construction Related Topics Instead Of Politics.


No wonder there is only 10 members that post here anymore. I thought politics and religion posts are only permitted in the basement? Every day there's bull**** posts of people trying to push their political views with some of the "moderators" being the worst offenders.

If I wanted to read about politic, I'd go to a political forum. How about cleaning this place up and getting back to construction related topics.

Good advice, but when you do, expect to be told that "You want to cry/brag about it on an online forum" and that you're "writing long inane useless drivel" by posters who contribute little or nothing but unconstructive criticism.

Re: How About A Contractor Talk About Construction Related Topics Instead Of Politics.


Kinda tough in the atmosphere we have currently. With all the different politically driven news stories now that affect the construction world directly and indirectly it's really tough to disconnect the two.

Show us what you are involved with as a project and see how it goes.

Re: How About A Contractor Talk About Construction Related Topics Instead Of Politics.


Politics is in everything. Even your avatar J.C. If you have a serious construction topic to discuss it will get covered here better then on any Facebook group. Part of the trouble is that this group has been so successful that most topics have been well covered. Talking about whats relevant int he world while waiting for the next topic to come up isn't hurting anything.
