Hi everyone,
We all know that COVID and COVID related discussions are very top of mind. This pandemic has directly impacted everything we do including our beloved sport of Mountain Biking. Our mutual love of Mountain Biking is why we all gather here in this community, and that is the primary reason for discussion.

Over the course of the year we have had many threads started either directly or indirectly related to the COVID Pandemic. Unfortunately in just about each and everyone of these threads the topic ends up going sideways into a political discussion of some sort. Some are direct political statements, some are more indirect but the meaning is still clear.

This becomes difficult to moderate as it means the Volunteer Mods, all of us are volunteers, have to be diligently looking through the threads and keep on top of each of them. It also means when a political crossfire starts happening we have to lock the thread, prune the bad stuff out, issue warnings or bans, and then unlock the thread so a civil non-political discussion can take place.

This can be tiring, not just for the mods, but for the site users who want to have active discussions without the political jockeying.

That said, there will be no more COVID related discussions on MTBR. If you see one, please report it or send a PM to one of the Moderators.

Bans will be issued for readily for repeat offenders of political speech.
