What happened to the moderators/admins actually moderating the political threads? I'm not saying they're not, but I have no idea why, but they seem to be letting these threads slide. The moderators should stop letting it slide, because it's getting annoying, and let alone, I'm quite sure it's on the AUP.

Here is the short version. People thought the political and religion threads rules were a bad idea. So there was quite a stir with the mods. Eventually there was an agreement made that if we had a few political threads that didnt go flamewar the mods would look away at closing threads that are political or religious unless tehy openly screamed flaming.

With that agreement we got allowed political threads as long as we stay civil in them and not start posts that are against the other AUP rules.

So basically as long as most people dont start insulting each other and stuff political threads are OK.

Far in the past. Political and religion threads were known to cause a lot of flaming. thats why they were forbidden. But within a few years this comunity grew older and more mature. So we had a couple of successes. After that the story from my previous post happened ^^

you just have too look a little closer. quite a few threads have ended up in a civil flame war against one person. which begs the question, whats worse? outright calling a person a ****-head, or just slowly destroying their self respect and beliefs.

political threads would be fine if they were really being debated. atm the religious, political, and conspirital threads have basically been an example of the "smart-guys" flamewar.

Most arguments are based on, "I think I'm more intelligent than you, and even if I'm wrong I will still argue pointlessly to make myself look good".

they probably used too be, but not now. most of them are just aimed at making jinx look as stupid as possible.

We are trying not to truancate free speech when the forum populace is so small. Please bear with us as we slacken the rules some to allow growth of the community to resume.
