If you have clicked on a link in the list of latest posts at the top of the main forum page and found that you did not have permissions to access the post, it may be a thread in our new Politics Forum (either that or a Premium Service thread).
With the election coming up, we started a new forum for political discussions. We've done this in the past and after a while it became a disaster so we cancelled it. But this new forum will be restricted to those who actually want to talk politics, and who have a good standing history of posting already.
Those who do not want any part of it, won't have to see any of the discussions at all.
The main Politics Forum is here: Politics (Restricted Access) ... and it contains links to some rules and info on how to get access.
It also contains a Sub_Forum called: "Politics" (http://www.tsptalk.com/mb/politics) where the actual political discussions are taking place. This is the area that is restricted.
We take our rules here about treating others with respect seriously, and thanks to you the TSP Talk forums have been very successful at keeping the peace. Politics is a different story, however. Those who go too far in the political discussions will be denied access to the poilitical forum and potentially banned from the entire TSP Talk forum. So, please, always be polite and respectful to other members. Thanks!
