thanks for seeing thatAt any rate, I understand why the Mods shut down political talk.
Too many people simply can't discuss things without getting emotional and insulting/attacking other people.
Rational maturity is a required pre-requisite for good, honest political chat....and the % of posters with that has declined, replaced with the "you are a retard and you suck" type of posters.
Not the mods' fault, they did what they had to do.
please check out the new Football only forum, with free agency about to take off again as teams continue to dump salaries based on projextions of their draft I see interesting activity happeningAt any rate, I guess I'll come back around when football season gets underway.
It has been an honor and apleasure, see you all in a few months.
Lol, you are special. Short bus special.
Kidding aside, the Political Forum "brought nothing to the table".
Mods - While reading through the last political thread in the political forum, I noted several well-respected posters voiced disagreement with closing it permanently. I can understand the need to shut it down for a while, let wounds heal, let some people move on, maybe some former members will come back, yada, yada. BUT... there really were some good discussions in there, lots of educated folks, and very good insight into multiple topics. I visited there frequently and participated in numerous threads, and I believe the majority of the posters followed proper decorum. Sure, there were some who let things get out of hand, some who were too hot-headed, some too thin-skinned, etc., but... everyone knew what they were getting into when they entered the place, and they themselves made the decision to go there.
I guess I'm just saying... I agree with the camp who thinks the political forum should be in a "time-out" versus "dead" status.
All the other changes that have been made, I don't really have any problems with.
Just make it a subforum of the AssClown forum, don't moderate it, and anyone who gets butthurt should probably not be there.
(Honestly, I don't care. While there was a lot of good shyte happening in PP, the argument spillover was a pain in the vBulletin.)
