Default Re: Poll: Political forum?

Not only would I say a political forum shouldn't happen, I'd even go so far as to say that politically-based posts should be disallowed, just because of the fact that they devolve into heated arguments 90%+ of the time. Even when one tries to be civil (left or right, no finger pointing here), the other side, like clockwork, begins ranting, insulting, or repeating himself/herself. In my experience, at least, little good comes from online political discussion.

Nobody's minds get changed, nobody sees the other side, and it seems like nobody is willing to have civil discussion when politics are brought up. Why not eliminate the problem and prevent it from pouring out into the other, generally friendlier topics? This forum is one of the most friendly I've been on, and I would like to see it stay that way.
