  • ***Politics and Religion done again***

    Well we are right back to where we were previously on the old site. It's becoming evident that political hot buttons can't be discussed here witthout thread derailing, name calling, and in some cases being downright offensive towards general populations.
    If topics come up like what happened in Edmonton or Vegas, stick to the incident, try and dicuss stuff like gun control like adults. The minute threads devolve into the usual right vs left and attacks, they are being shut down. Anyone who keeps trying to do this or derailing other threads will be hit with bans.

    Its ridiculous when the vast maority of problems and reported posts are in the lounge. It's ridiculous when go_riders had to delete as many posts as he did in a thread about a restaurant gettting shot up. Mods have better things to do than baby site that stuff. This site is called riderfans and it's main purpose is to discuss football. There are all kinds of other places to get into the political stuff. Places that are like the wild west of internet to so you can probably let er' fly. But it's not happening here anymore.

    To add to this...

    As CRF says, discussion can happen around topics that invoke politics. It's the stupid partisan comments that derail things and get topics closed.

    It also doesn't help when people continually post "In before the lock" or chastise others for making "so called political comments when they aren't allowed."
