Post any political related threads here:
How about a SubForum for religious opinion/threads?
The only beef I have with all these new forums is that the
a lot? or too often??? ha
should we report posts/threads that we feel should be moved? or should we just trust the admins to do their job (when sober)?
still 1 holdout....
the thread started by arti should get moved too.... it's the essence of a bull**** political thread.
Arn, I have the utmost respect for the work you do here on MacRumors, and I am even going to buy a mug one of these days I swear! But....do you think it's a good idea to ghettoize the political threads? Some of us really get into it I know, and lately there's been a lot of them, but on a certain level I think that having them mixed in with the general community discussion is actually a good thing even for those averse to politics. If you are one of the people who doesn't get into political debate too often normally, like myself, it's refreshing to find some good open discussion of todays events. A lot of what gets discussed is good for the occasional browser who wouldn't seek it out. By putting a label on it, it will bring in the zealots, but scare away the people who may actually benefit from reading a political thread every once in a while.
just a thought.
Heck they were even took off the main page.
IMO, bad idea. That just means less people... YES!
I suppose... however, there are so many threads related to this, that it clutters of the community discussion. Obviosuly there are enough people interested or sucked into talking about it, I think it's own forum might be warrented. I know I've stopped reading any politcal thread.
I prob will link it in some form from the main page...
aw damn they aren't all garbage
My Ricardo Montalban thread wasn't a political thread but it was moved to the political section
I agree, think it's a good idea to have the political threads together. Thank you arn!
I was getting a little sick of political threads, but then again most
everything having to do with politics makes me sick. I think this
was a very good idea. Now I only have one thread to avoid .
I don't know about a religious thread though, I think there are a
lot less religion threads than political threads. And religion threads
are much more fun.
I think you're right, the people who don't usually get involved could really benefit from some exposure to debate, and at the same time keep it from being didactic vs. didactic.
RE: The Free Data Party Thread.
Could one of the Mods move the IFDP party thread into the Politics Forum?
The politics must be wearing out those servers! Dont blame you a bit Arn. now to go in or not to that is the question!
Political forum is a grat move. Most people who have been around for awhile loof at the main forum undex anyway, so i'm not sure a front page link is even neccesary
finally! i used to love browsing the community topics...then like a swarm the politics just exploded that. i tryed my best not to get involved cause some people can get downright nasty. but it does have a place so i'm glad it does now.
So what's going on now? Is the whole Politics Subforum now closed?
arn why was the political subforum closed?
Perhaps this is why:
