I'm not certain I get your point.  I bought a Prius because I'm concerned
about peak oil and global warming.  It's not my fault these important issues
have been politicized.   My concerns cut to the chase (of Prius ownership)
and are on-topic.  At least a few have come here looking for justification
for their own Prius purchase.

The point is that this is not a political discussion group.

Will you please tell me what is political about putting ANWR in the SPR?
The statement isn't critical of any political party or politician.
Conservation as an alternative to burning a valuable resource accrues to
everyone's benefit.  Politicizing, and the attendant polarization, is
counterproductive.

If you find this topic politically sensitive then I suggest you work toward
removing it from your political arena.  It doesn't belong there.

That's not the issue.  The issue is that, once a thread goes off-topic,
it can easily get out of hand.  Before I started this newsgroup (and,
yes, I really am the one who started it, although it was actually
Michelle Steiner's idea), I tried reading the main alt.autos.toyota
newsgroup and quickly gave up because it was about 50% political stuff,
most having nothing to do with Toyotas, or even autos, at all.  I'm sure
that it all must have begun rather innocuously enough.

Mike, the reasons for purchasing a Prius *are* on topic, right?  I didn't
raise the political issue, you did.  Had you not snipped your reply, that
would be perfectly clear.  Now let's quit playing word games and get back to
meaningful discussions regarding the Prius, including reasons for buying
one.
