This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Political threads now have their own subforum
« on: September 23, 2008, 07:50:24 PM »
A politics subforum has been created.  New threads about politics should go there; a number of existing threads have also been relocated to the new subforum.

This is a trial-measure. We'll see if it actually does anything. Frankly, I'd be happy if it just stopped the whining.

Also, I'm still strongly considering purging the politics subforum every six months or so.  If we do that, the first purge will probably be a couple of weeks after the U.S. election.  Most politics threads tend to become old news anyways.

It would be nice to wait until after the US elections as you say. Mixed amongst the crap is some good sources. I agree that purging it is a good thing.

Does this include posts from those who whine about feminazi abortion clinic techs who believe that everybody has a fundamental right to live?

Sounds like a good plan.  Wouldn't want the stale discussions mucking up up to date stuff.  There are plenty of places on the internet to research older topics if you need a reference.
