I have a serious problem with avoiding pointless conversations. Politics, religion IMO are pointless and the "discussion" is really just "i am rubber you are glue".
I vote against a Boiler Room forum and urge everyone (myself included/mostly) to keep those two (at least those two) topics off of remote central.
I would say Control4 and iOS v Android as additional topics to keep off the forum but Control4 is kicking ass and Android will be off mobile devices by the end of the year so its not worth banning it as a subject :).
