    Just got another not more than half a hour ago.

    I cannot understand why it is so difficult for people to check the tag and skip the threads they are not interested in?

    I cant stop you from leaving but I refuse to stop people from voicing an opinion either. We can all jump in and disagree, trash each other whatever but we are not going to stop it. We are not going to bend because someone wants to censor or control the site, its not going to happen.

    That being said, We have declared "The Bar" a religious politics safe zone. It is not allowed in there, instead of leaving over politics just move to the bar. Or better yet just skip the threads you don't like.

    I always thought it was well known manners to not talk politics and religion in a bar.

    With emotions ratcheting up, perhaps, dawg, it's time for another vote to determine whether politics should be limited to its own forum :dontknow: Couldn't hurt, could it? Either the results will confirm the original vote or reflect the shifting tide in voter sentiment.

    I have no problem with political discussions on thss forum but I do wonder why not just enforce political discussion (that are not tied to news like San Bernardino ) to their dedicated forum.

    What's so difficult about not clicking on a thread that doesn't interest you?

    If the shed is flooded with threads you don't like, here's a novel idea... Walk away from the computer.

    Freaking babies! It's crazy.... Is this Dawgs daycare?

    Then what do we do with this forum, the majority of threads are current events and politics, for the time period we curtailed it this forum died with nothing more than celebrity and Stern threads.

    My mindset is letting people post whatever they want as long as they dont break the laws, contain overt racism or threats. Pretty much anything else is open game.

    Hell you can even start a thread about dingle berries for all i care.

    Don't even go there . Every thread here will turn political, if we had no tags on .

    I just check the fucking tags and ignore any political thread .

    Point taken BS.. but if rumors that he's re-signing prove true, there'll be more fodder for discussion.

    I hear you guys.. and your instincts could well be spot on.. but then why not allowing it in the bar too?

    The politics forum is for them to dissect the less prominent stories, this forum is for the front page stuff. When you count all the offshoot threads surrounding the San Bernardino shooting we have had 75,000 pages views, in two days.

    you probably should demand your supporter status back as a protest, ya think?
