    Since we voted to allow political topics in the Stern Forum, complaints have actually increased rather than decreased. I'm not sure why if a person sees Obama or Republican in the thread title and that person doesn't like political discussion why does that person click on the threads. I commend those in the political threads I've seen recently, there has been some good discussion from both sides of the aisle. Politics is allowed on the Forum, it was decided by member vote, it's not going to change.

    The same with current events, recently there was a thread clearly marked NSFW and spoiler tagged about a beheading in Saudi Arabia and yet there were still complaints about it. A person had to click three times to actually see the video. The story is still in the NYTimes today so it certainly qualified as a legit event worthy of a thread. This is an adult message board, we assume that the members have the ability to use discretion as to what they choose to view. I had no interest in the Cygnus saga or the roommate drama so I just avoided those threads without complaining that others shouldn't be able to view them.

    That does not mean that it's a free for all, Shiv's James Earl Ray thread was moved to the Hoochie Bin for going too far and it doesn't give people carte blance to start seven political threads in 15 minutes. The board is supposed to be about entertainment, if something pisses you off, avoid it.

    I think one of the problems is that just about any discussion of current events degrades to a political debate.

    Even if the vote had gone the other way there's little that could be done about that, we can't read every post, hopefully with people able to express their political views in the political threads they will feel less likely to derail other threads. If there is a case of a person going way too far, you can always PM a mod or admin, we can ban individuals from threads if there is a legit reason.

    You know the world is going to shit when even a message board dedicated to hating a wigged fraud is bombarded by everyone gets a trophy, sand in vagina, PC police, thin skinned pussies filing complaints.

    Make a complaints forum and insist all complaints are posted there.

    With anything like this, people feel their own agenda is the most important. We have members that want this forum limited to Stern topics only, the HSS has been on 6 of the last 35 days, eventually the board would be as dead as SFN if we instituted that policy. Others want politics restricted, no hang out threads, to make Stern's family off limits, race discussion restricted, no Opie and Anthony talk.............

    Other than illegal posts or legit threats which are always removed, we try to use discretion to keep as many as possible happy without resorting to heavy handed censorship.

    Yeah Stern show is hard to post about now. It's never on. I probably should've started posting most of my threads in the bar a while ago or start doing them there. I don't mean it's about me obviously. I just mean I had no idea there were a lot of people were getting pissed about Stern forum posters posting non Stern threads behind the scenes. Oops. Well on my end....my fault. Never aim to frustrate anyone here. Just having fun. :)

    If it doesn't interest you or,if it
    I don't want your threads in the Bar, they add a lot to this Forum. The others need to wash their pussy's and not click on threads that they don't like or that don't interest them.

    I saw the thread about the woman getting beheaded, but thought the video might be disturbing and I didn't want to see it. So I didn't watch it.
