Starting tonight there will be some content changes in the Stern Forum. We gave political threads in the forum a try and it has caused too many issues and excessive drama for a number of the members here who have been long accustomed to Stern and pop culture threads being the basis of the forum. That being the case we will be moving political threads back to the politics forum and no longer allow them in the Stern Forum. Those of you that enjoy politics please join the discussions in the politics forum, there is an icon in the forum header to direct you there. News stories are still OK but the threads will be moved to politics if they become political in nature. In addition there will more vigorous enforcement of racist remarks in the forum, as there is a wide range of thought as to what constitutes a racist remark the staff will try to strike an appropriate balance somewhere between Bosch and Daniel Carver. Posts considered racist will be removed and the posters warned. Religion is also not a subject for forum discussion, again a subject that seems to bring out overly heated discussion. These changes are being made in the best interest of the forum and are not intended to single out any group of posters. The politics change has been reflected in the Dawgshed Terms of Service as such: 11. Political discussion will only be allowed in the politics forum only.
