I'm not a huge fan of politics as it always seems like a heated, devisive topic of debate, but it seems like people do like discussing it.  I wonder whether a forum section for political discussions would allow people to let off some steam, express some sentiment, and separate the talk from the main forums?  Or would it just be opening up new issues and create more work for the mods?

EDIT:  Whoa.. :blink: just read the thread that got locked.  Geez Louise there is a lot of very polar opinions.  Maybe best not to have a politics section.  :rolleyes:

I would say a dedicated political section should not exist on the forum. Political discussion is all but impossible in most countries in the current polorized  climate. Having a section dedicated to it would likely encourage such threads to exist where they otherwise would not and resentment between parties stemming from them would probably spill into other unrelated discussions.

That's too bad.  I wouldn't have minded seeing the different viewpoints and learning a bit more.  I like being a sponge for information.  I thought we were all able to have rational discussions without personal attacks or "fighting words."  Everyone's got their right to their opinions, and I used to think encouraging frank discussion about issues would allow different sides to maybe see the various viewpoints.  If it's just going to become a mud slinging match or get into name calling then it's just not worth it.  :(

I guess I have to ask myself, if I need to start yelling, calling people names, or try to put others down in order to express my opinion, what does that really say about the validity of my viewpoint if it cannot stand on its own without needing to resort to such measures?  Sometimes more carrot and less stick seems to be a more effective way of getting people to understand and appreciate each other.

Yeah I tend to agree after reading the rest of that thread.  I think my gentle nudge towards respect for my fellow man was left unread or simply ignored!  :rolleyes:  Meh, I don't like politics anyways, but wow talk about a hot point!  People are like :furious: and :eff0541f4a: , and I'm like :blink: and :shock2:.  Let's all be more :efeeec645d: and :efeeb35c09: (well maybe not so much :efeeb35c09:) with each other.  More love less hate.  :efef62fc70:

We have had a few political threads in the past and they seem to degrade to name calling. No reason to create a section for that.

Let me translate that cryptic message from Amarikan to politically correct proper English:

"What the heckers is wrong with Jake Paul and his crew?  Not to mention all of the shenanigans and childish pranks that is so utterly stupid?"

:w00t2:  It's -12°C this weekend with snow, but it's going to up plus 9°C just in time for Monday!  :angry:

It won't take long before some millennial non-cis snowflake SJW gets triggered when there's a difference in opinion and flags posts to the mods because they demand this be their safe space.

It's a quite "boring" forum regarding mod interaction "needed" ?.

It's made/sponsored from an EUC enthusiast for EUC riders. Everything else is just offtopic. As long as it's funny, interesting or just not "annoying" noone cares. Just from time to time some people beg for measures... Here is no place to insult/punch others or spread whichsoever (intrusive) propaganda(1). For this topics/behaviout exits other forums - if not, everyone is free to create his own forum. With or without snowflakes/mods/... as one likes ?

Ps.: I hope i got the content right - not so easy as non native english speaker. If not just ignore this post...?

(1) could it be that this is what you meant with the milenium snowflake SJW? I just got a rough idea of this expression after goigling it....
