I stopped participating for the most part a couple of years ago pretty much due to the reason sited for the end of the forum. I came by for a look every now and then and found that nothing had changed. pretty much every issue quickly lost any reasoned discussion if it had any to begin with. There are plenty of places for those interested in spirited debate to find it. I'm glad to see this site loose this sub forum.
A lot of people have told me in person that that is why they quit coming to the forums. They were tired of being treated like crap for having a differing opinion. I know I was starting to feel the same way.
Hopefully, those people will come back, because quite a few of them were nice to have around.
That's what everyone figured. When conservatives could not prevail with their minds and their arguments were reduced to rubble they lowered themselves to victim mode and appealed to moderators to "Make the bad thing go away Mommy". Now everyone in the forum was a "bully", what crap. C'est la vie, that's life.
- The complaints came from across the spectrum. And, most were more about the lack of civility, and that fact that to crap spread across all of the forums.
- Much like THIS. Political discussions are DONE. Quit trying to keep dragging it into EVERY post you make.
