    I have seen a split in all forums on opinions concerning Political threads.

    Now, If you vote to allow Political thread in the two main forums I will delete the Politics forum. There would be no need for it at that point. Just a waste of staff time.

    Anyway, I have 3:06 pm on my watch. I will close this poll at 10pm central time tomorrow night. That gives you more than 24 hours to vote. This poll will be public so we can all see who is voting for what.

    Not that my opinion counts, but I could care less.

    Please don't close the politics forum.

    If you do then all those braindead shitheads will come here with their horse shit and start threads about Obama planning to blow up the moon.

    Um, I would like to file a protest on the extremely GOP'ish wording of this poll.

    Man, start a thread about a current event TV show, and all of a sudden it's like the third reich comes marching down the street.


    Good thing you people like Breaking Bad. :c

    Dawg, maybe a compromise, keep the forum, but allow "viewing" type threads. I think the RNC, DNC, election night, The State of the Union and other widely covered events are all things that have a broad appeal and to which even the casual political observer can contribute

    Only certain folks post in political forums...which kind of makes the effort futile....I think if people can limit the amount, it would be OK in the bar
