Seeing how political topics inevitably gets heated, I have created the Politics subforum for explicitly discussing real world topics. Rules regarding flaming and language are relaxed, HOWEVER any racial, ethnic, homophobic, sexist, etc. slurs and epithets are still considered improper and grounds for moderation. The Management takes no responsibility for the views espoused in this forum and any arguments that may result.

Thank you Duckk.

You are WAY to accommodating/proactive for what we really deserve.

A VERY appreciative,

Yeah!! I actually like politics much better on this forum than on the official politics forums. Despite the occasional flame, most of the discussion here is intelligent. As opposed to the official political forums where most of the discussions remind me of two year olds calling each other names.

Given the possibility of flaming, can we call this the BBQ forum?

On another forum I frequent, they have a section to move posts that have denegrated to name-calling and Godwin-ing....

They call the subforum Abandon All Hope... 8-) :evil:
