This place is almost nothing but vitriolic hyperbole of hate and polarizing arguments... it is no fun and not healthy.

Make a separate channel for all of that crap.

It gets worse every day, why have you let it devolve into this?

The internet needs to ban more hate speach until there is only one side to be heard that agrees on everything! Muhahaha

Last year he had planned to make the PoliticalGround official but he changed his mind.  The funny part is most of the OG would migrate there.  The regular OG would become a seldom visited off topic forum.

That's not what happened the first time they tried that. They kept moving threads over there, but they finally gave up.

It was only being done by Mountain Medic and not an official policy.  Everyone cried too much and it ended.  If Kirik made it official you should either post in the correct forum or have your thread deleted, not moved.  Once that happens a few times people will start following the rules.   There's no incentive to post in the right forum if the only reprecussion is it gets moved by a mod.

How bout instead of a politicalground he just makes a nonpoliticalground. A separate area where you can be sheltered from politics. Keep the otherground uncensored

I think deleting people's threads would seriously piss people off. Probably not worth the headache for them.

I am grateful for any input people have. We are living in an unusual moment in the nation's history, and the OG reflects it.

They gave up because a vocal minority (cami) went literally batshit insane and made more complaint threads than political ones.

I guess the question is, what are the divisions?

 

war ground isn't a totally bad idea (maybe its historic and not a real current solution). poeple want to give it a go or build a thread based on animosity?

 

I'll mod if for you... fox in the henhouse, no worries (no? hit me bitches... hahaha)

Make your own threads then and change the conversation. (This one excluded) Talk about something else. Don't wait for inspiration.

This place is one of the few freely open discussion boards that features inputs from both side.

Putting it in a subforum would not work because every single day there would be people posting on the OG instead. Either because they forget, they don't care, or because they don't think it will get read. And nobody is gonna act like Reddit police if they do.

I don't think so.

I have been sent away so many times to build character, I may have come back a character.

We don't need any other ground. If you don't like the content then create your own threads. If no one replies it was a crap thread anyway. We all make duds.

I'm talking about the whiney OP! Crying about the content of the board I've never seen a thread made by them.
