"ATTENTION: Do NOT Post Political Discussions Here" - Why not?


The board is about a Politician?

This is a discussion forum?

Surely just scrap any forums that are not directly related to the showbiz entertainment world?

It's explained in the moderators post as to why so I'm not sure if you're just trolling but basically before that rule the DJT board was constantly trending with largely uncivil debate amongst the same posters routinely referring to each other as variations of republican or democrat amended to end with "tard". Many didn't like this page constantly trending and those that ran the site feared that constant political discussion (and mean spirited discussion at that) might turn off potential new members if that was the first thing they see when visiting the board. All are welcome to discuss politics in the politics section.

Fine, then remove the DJT board. Along with the Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, etc. boards.

All boards were imported from IMDB, I'm sure there are plenty who would just assume delete them but I don't know what would be involved with that. Either way the rule they've implemented is what needs to be followed. This has already been debated as nauseum and you've been around here long enough to know all this...not sure who's sock puppet johnny66 with 10 posts is but I'm guessing he knows it too. Not going to respond to anything else in this thread because it's not going to change the rules and we're both knowingly going against the mods wishes of keeping this board from trending right now. Neither of us is forced to use moviechat but if we choose to we agree to follow their rules when signing up. Not sure why this rule is so unbearable for some but it is what it is.

I dont think the mods "dont want this page to trend". Its just that people asked to talk about only the politicians stuff in entertainment.

reply

The majority of people didn't like seeing Trump trending everyday so a ban not to talk about him was instituted.

reply

Agreed, it's a moronic rule. "Let's publish message boards for political figures and then ban political discussion on them!"

reply

if you look at recent discussions... every page will have a one or two discussions on US politics, more often than not Donald related...

If you're starved to discuss donald's politics there is ample opporunity on this site... I'm not a mod... Just a poster... I don't see the big deal, but don't feel strongly either way...
