    well thats up to you (and i see that it is back)

    but im interested to see how these "rules" will be implemented.

    there seems to be more concern over people being called conspiracy theorists or racists than over people actually BEING conspiracy theorists or racists.

    now THAT is representative of our current society.

    that said, as far as im aware, i didnt see anybody who had a problem leaving the politics in the politics thread. none of the discussions (or arguments if you prefer) carried over into the football side of things.

    i generally think we are all plenty capable/mature enough to have a heated discussion about politics and leave it there. weve never had a problem with our countless redskins debates.

    and those who dont like the forum, dont have to view it.

    im completely ok with the thread not existing but unless somebody can convince me that the thread is negatively affecting the rest of the board i dont see the problem with it (despite the lack of any real benefit to having it lol).

    Actually, I believe that debate would fall under politics.

    well yes , isnt that what moderating is ? i think its easy to see " so and so you are a racist pig " is an insult .

    i think its easy to see context as well .

    i also think its pretty easy to accept the guidelines to have something to talk about that you want too

    and again people will get some warnings as they have been getting

    Fair enough.

    I don't think anybody called anybody else "a racist pig" last time though.
