After much discussion about the Stern Forum, Dawg and I have decided to revert to the old policy of allowing discussion of any topic in the Stern Forum, including politics and controversial news stories. We have re-added the politics prefix and request that threads of a political nature be marked with this prefix. No forum wide rules are changing so restrictions on threats, trolling and overt racism remain in place, that includes flooding the board with threads. I know that there are those of you that object to this policy but we have done everything possible to alert you to threads that you may have no interest in, simply skip over them to something of interest. Yes we have gone back and forth in this policy numerous times with mixed results but overall, much like the old Stern show that we all liked, allowing varied discussion makes things more interesting.
