Honest Question for Mods: Why has OT become so political?
I understand people want to talk about Trayvon, crime, local gov, race and all those topics. Isn't that what the Poli board is for? Over the last 6-9 months it seems the OT has been flooded with these threads.

And I understand, if I don't like it then don't click on it. But, I can't even browse the board with out reading 3-4 such threads on each page it seems. Why can't we keep it in Political Talk?

A criminal case isn't "political" on its face.


ETA: Hooooly shit, I just clicked on the Poli Talk board for the first time. Don't do it.

Flavor of the month. We just had probably the most anticipated cases this year.

Why do you cower in fear of real life?

Because reasons.


We're also scared of the Poli Board. Can't go in there.

I know this is at the root of the it, most of those people are quacks. I just would rather keep topics in their place.

A board becomes more it's own community than a place people go to discuss certain topics. I know that's not the intent, but it's natural.

Plus, nobody cares what you want.

Shouldn't this question be posed on the Help Board?

Oh, I get it, you weren't actually concerned with the mod's opinion on the subject.

Better question...

If this had been the OJ Simpson trial wrapping up what would the OT board look like?

Don't be scared of the Poli board. If you know who to disregard, it's a fine place.

Hell, for that matter, at the current time there are GZ threads on the front page of the MSB and MTV board. It's out of control.
