Default Politics Forum?

Maybe we have enough forums already, but seeing that 7 out of the top 10 (non sticky) threads are about politics it might be a good idea to add a politics area to keep the locker room more light hearted.

I agree wholeheartedly, Borski, and have brought this idea up to Mike once in the past. The political threads are strangling the Locker Room which isn't fair to those who don't want to engage in political flamefests and member clubbings . . . . errrrr, I mean discussions.

Mike - I think we should revisit this topic.

i thought the locker room was the political forum.

on second thought, i do recall someone bringing this up in the past.

is it too much to ask for a political sub-forum? i happen to like the political discussions and the civil debates they can often bring forth. i also regard the locker room as my 3rd-4th most favorite forum here, and see that some people dont want it infected with political talk now that the election is over.

it seems like a convinient solution to me.
i have noticed that the "anti-obama/obama bashing thread of the day" congestion has recently ceased.

shalom...

So what would be the best way to gauge the public opion on this? Make a poll? if so here or in the locker room? (because not everyone reads this forum)

I like this idea.

Less clutter in the locker room, and less repetitive threads since it would be confined in one area.
