    New Political Forum

    As much as I am against these types of forums, I think it's time we have a forum dedicated to politics, so that those who are interested in such topics can have a forum to post about it, and those that aren't, won't have to see those threads anymore in Non-Music. I can't stand political forums myself as they tend to bring out the worst in people, but at this point unless I ban political discussion all together, this is the best alternative.

    This does not give anyone carte blanche to say whatever they want however. And I'll tell you, the "America sucks" posts are getting tired. And let's remember, that just because you think you deserve free speech on this web site, you aren't entitled to it. And if things cross a line that bothers me personally, then yes I will stop it. And I'm fine with normal criticism of ALL governments if that's your thing, but it has sadly become far more than simple and productive criticism. And you should try to remember that this is a site run by an American, for an American rock band, on a server that is sitting in the United States. You want to run around and talk about how awful the US is, there are plenty of places to yell and scream anti-American sentiment on the internet. This isn't the site for that. Use good judgment on what is good debate, and what is crossing the line. We're all adults, I'm pretty sure everyone knows when they are crossing the line...or at least you should.

    With that said, the forum is open, so feel free to use it. It's located under the Non-Music and is called Political Underground.

    If someone posts something about anything...let's take the blizzard for example...someone is going to make a remark or joke about global warming and then a counter reply will most likely come in.

    What's the site's stance on that?

    I ask because the exchange I had with dibs was just goofing around. I took a dig at her and how brits spell things weird and she took an appropriate shot back at me.

    A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government.

    That was fine. I think it was just seeing yet another thread mentioning nationalities in a movie thread rubbed me the wrong way.

    There will be a learning curve here, but mostly I have been moving threads into the subforum that I believe are predominantly political

    other threads like gas and oil prices are general interest, but frequently become political

    other gray areas for me are for example, opening up Cuban diplomacy...yep, it's political, but it is also general interest. So there you have it, it's a work in progress

    So basically, if a new thread pops up and It's like "Obama says this" or "Jeb Bush says that"...it will go into this new political forum?

    I think its time has come. We don't need a NEW thread everytime a politician opens their mouth.

    Amen, and thank you baby Jesus, Oprah Winfrey and Tom Cruise.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Good idea to have a politics only thread. You should make me a mod.

    Much appreciated.

    Any way to set it up so one can delete/hide the thread completely?
    Utilize. Improvise. Adapt. Overcome.

    Not that I know of, but should be pretty easy to ignore that forum.

    No probs, hun...Truly though - nothing anti-American there at ALL (sorry, if it came across that way); against my better judgment, I was compelled to respond to Arse's jibes - I just couldn't help myself!
