    If grown adults can't sit around and talk about politics the way grown adults do then what's point of having discussions?
    People are going to talk about whatever they want to talk about and those topics go all over the map. Do we bury our heads in the sand and pretend nothing bad is happening with the ship of state?

    Hide the forum from everyone who does not want to specifically be in it. If there is an administrator who does not want to take part, make so they can not even access it if that is even possible. THERE IS NOTHING PARTISAN ABOUT CALLING OUT A TRAITOR IN CHIEF. You may not have liked past presidents whether they be on the left side or right side of the aisle but when we have a segment of the population that sides with Putin because they are told to? That needs to be discussed among adults.

With the political climate that exists today it will be tough to control even a more regulated forum but it could still be nuked in any case if it proves to be unmanageable.
    I appreciate the views of those on the outside looking in. We can not always see the circus for all the elephant dung in the tent.

    Spectacular observation Charles. The elephant dung does seem to be piled higher than ever before.

    Nope... not really.

    But I'm very hairy, my hose is formidable, and the stuffed animal is very cute.

    Ok... that even made ME uncomfortable... why do I hang out with you people?

    I don't participate much in the political forum here. I just can't. I've been an activist all my life, but my energy is limited lately and I just can't go there.

    When I think about this from a mile-high view I think that a visible political forum could attract those who want to fight that battle. I think that, among the current island population, it's not bad... But a busier forum could attract a different sort.

    I also think that enforcement of the proposed rules in a new forum could become a bottomless pit. I'm sure OP realizes this, though.
