Do the Pirate Party Crew want Joe Public able to join and comment on our discussion forum? I don’t. I think the Pirate Party Discussion Forum should be members only comment. Public only view. If Joe wants to comment, s/he can join. There are plenty of other ways to ask the Pirate Party a question.
I raise this because I was going to give the forums a bit of a plug on social media. Try to get a bit of interest in watching transparent party politics in action. Pull in the punters and get them engaged. But I’ve seen on other forums what offensive arse-water can be spewed by clowns with too much time on their hands. And dumping that bile on a free to join political party forum seems a bit too easy. On second thoughts, perhaps it’s a good thing the forum hasn’t been widely promoted. Yet.
I think only members should be able to comment because, well, we joined. We made the commitment to honor the Pirate Code. This forum is one place where we know everyone else commenting made the same commitment. This forum is our liquid democracy.
This is our ship. This is our forum. Like what you see? Join the Pirate Party! (it’s free)

Oh yeah … got a question and you’re not a Pirate? Try email, facebook or twitter. The Party is watching.
Ps. Non-members could be added if NC approve. For those special circumstances.
Vote for members only comment, with a “like”. Good on ya mate!
edit: I’ve changed my opinion given points made in the discussion. I no longer support my proposal to restrict access. Thanks to all contributors. I’m glad I asked the question.
