57. On the other hand, an inclusive group in J & PS reiterates that the main focus

of the group will remain policy, which is appropriate for a political discussion board. (I actually don't think the change will have much effect - look at the small number of relevant threads in Outdoor Life or that have been hidden here - but I support the idea of a more open group to allow the possibility of more diverse conversations.)

My take on it is that there are a lot of different firearms-related topics that individual DUers are interested in, and we all have partly-overlapping interests among these topics. Keeping all the topics that intersect at 'firearms' together in one group makes it most likely that threads will be seen and conversations will occur. Given the ways we can all tailor our individual DU experiences (ignore, trash thread, trash group, just don't read), I think an inclusive group is more logical than compartmentalizing. We all do that sort of filtering anyway, I imagine, in every group/forum we browse...
