Default political/religious Chitchat sub forum

on a couple forums I'm on they have a separate forum just for political and religious conversations only. Helps keep the heated arguments seperated from the guys who just want to BS.

I think he is suggesting.

Me and Aaron talked the other night about it.

Truthfully I enjoy some threads in chit chat, but in the last few months with an occasional here and there have stayed out because of the political and religious agenda.

Apparently as I have been told I don't have the right to speak my opinion because as a Vendor I should not have one as its detrimental to my business., unless it follows the masses.

From our experience, quite a few forums have a chit chat thread and a Political/religious thread if they will tolerate it to keep the B.S. down and keep the masses happy. Not everyone wants to visit Chit chat and see a yet another debate on the church or F'in left wing/right wing haterade.

If ya don't want to read it, don't click it.

Though I wish people weren't so scared to join in. The more views the better IMO.

Its understandable. Every business needs to keep a certain amount of diplomacy if they wish to keep and expand their sales. As I weigh the option of buying a blue star I keep thinking "dammit, I'm gonna have to keep my mouth shut".

Personally, what happens in chit chat stays in chit chat. I don't carry arguments or disagreements with other members out into the rest of the forum. I had someone pm me a while back saying that they were surprised that I had answered one of their tech questions even though we had just had a heated argument in chit chat.

I wouldn't give a fawk if you were right, left or upside down. Your product is your product, it's not like your scale seats say "Obama rules" or "Obama sucks" if people don't buy your stuff just because you see it differently from their view...... They're retarded, plain and simple.
If we got into a heated discussion about religion or politics, I'd still buy your products..

More like careful with the presentation. People (dezfan) are naturally sensitive.

I don't blame them, it's not easy to stand out from 99% of the forum, let alone be cross-examined by binaryterror or you to a lesser degree.

I think you'd be very surprised by the amount of people who do just that. I've seen more than just a few posts where people say they won't buy from a certain vendor because of their views or attitudes. Like it or not, if you are a vendor...or any business really, you sometimes have to keep your opinions to yourself. I just let JeremyH, Duuuuuuuude or Dez say what I'm feeling depending on my mood that day

Back to the topic though, my question is who will be the moderator for this new section? Eeepee has said once before the amount of hours he puts into this site, and to say the least it's kind of staggering. Putting a section like this out there would be a full time job.

It sucks being a silent cheerleader, huh?

I can only imagine how many vendors or site owners/moderators sitting on their hands and gritting their teeth because they can't put their .02 in.

Opinions are like a-holes....everyone's got one...and we can all speak with that hole....that's what we all love about this country...the freedom to speak and believe what we want...

then it'll end up with lobbyist and special interest groups swaying the mods with gold star donations and high speed web access... and of course since it's a politics and religion sub forum, it'll need elected representatives from every religion... it'll be endless red tape to get a post up!

Make it a dictatorship

Aye, and you can get the religion and politics all in one neat package. Dictators are stiff and angry and unreasonable men. You never hear anyone say (in a Scottish accent) "ah, but he was a good dictator.". They're usually just megalomaniacal jerks who just piss everyone off until they get overthrown.
