How Many Times Do We Have To Explain It?

Postby ATV News moderator » February 11th, 2003, 1:29 am

As I have posted REPEATED times, we don't read every post. But, that said, I'll review our policy once again.

1. We are not anti free speech. But this message board is not public domain. It is privately owned and operated. We reserve the right to delete, edit and modify posts. And yes, even ban members. We don't issue warnings. If someone complains about a post, we review it's contents and take action.

2. If you think that riding under the infulence is good for snowmobiling, then you probably don't belong here. Save the drinking (or smoking, injecting, snorting or licking) for after the ride.

3. While we don't condone it, alcohol is currently LEGAL in the United States and Canada. I don't know about Canada, but I'm pretty sure that pot is ILLEGAL in the U.S.

4. Finally, we have stated several times that this is a family site, and that snowmobiling is a family sport. For the sport to continue, snowmobilers have to take responsiblity for their actions. Every time a rider is injured or killed because of the chemicals in their blood, it reflects bad on the sport. I want snowmobiling to still be an option for my family when I have kids.

There, I've said my piece. It's the last time I'm going to weigh in on this issue.

Blake

PS: I'm deleting the Trail Closing topic because I got another e-mail from the person saying he didn't close the trail after all.

In the email I got from him mlrev800, he said Blake couldnt actually point out to him what he said.
I agree our sport gets a black eye every time someone dies,dosent matter how or why they died, it just looks bad.
So Im glad I didnt get bounced for saying my peace!!

Looks like a few people here need to wipe the brown stuff off there nose's.
You guys act like this post was the worst thing you have ever read.
Was this post REALLY that offensive that you guys have to keep thanking Blake for removing it? Was it? If so you guys need to climb out of the hole your living in and see what the real problems in this world are!!

Red, it wasn't offensive, but it is a bad topic to have anti-sledders see riders argueing about.
Neither topic in that post does our sport any good. I mean really, would you brag about stoners on the trail being better than drunks, to somebody who isn't into the sport? Lets see,"We got the sober riders, the stoners and then the drunks. Hey, wanna come sledding with me this weekend, if we're lucky we'll only have to deal with the stoners...." Not gonna impress many with that invitation.
We all have our own opinions on subjects, but some subjects are better left unsaid.
Sorry, I'm making this post like the others, I'll shut up now....
