In the distant past, there used to be a group of members who were a bit more "combative." They wanted to use this board as a venue for political discussion -- and that was before the current political climate here in The States became as polarized as it is. First, Hank asked them to stop. Then he tried opening a separate sub-forum for off-topic discussions. Eventually it became so acrimonious that he asked some of them to leave. They now have their own board, and some of us also visit there, too. I think it has all worked out over time. They can have their political discourse with a side dish of heart discussions, while we who stayed behind can focus on those issues that are important to us.
What's the name of the other forum?
