--- Quote from: Todd R on February 18, 2010, 10:25:23 PM ---Just out of curiosity, whats the reasoning for having some boards locked?

--- End quote ---
There are a quite a few reasons, but it basically boils down to this being a preparedness board & not a debate board for folks to push whatever their pet agenda might be.  Whether it be politics, religion, save this or save that...we're here to learn & teach & share in the modern survivalist philosophy.

We found that when the politics, & patriotism boards were open we were pulling in members who's main interest was coming here & spending the majority of their time picking political fights.  This isn't that kind of forum so we limited the access to those boards.  It's takes quite a lot of posts to open those boards, which weeds out the folks who are only here for a particular reason.

The other boards are locked to new members because they were the boards that were getting spammed the most. 

I'd like to echo what TW said.

Being a member of the MSB does not entitle anyone to any special privileges on the forum.  They are indeed separate entities & have nothing to do with each other.

The Infidel:
Yep, got it the first time, but thanks for the response. It wasn't so much a request as it was an idea. Obviously a bad one. Thanks for clearing things up.
