Why was there a politics thread for years? Why is there a politics thread on the Bills board? Is that how we posters are viewed, as children? Is that why you adults won't announce what the decision was about the politics thread? Because we aren't old enough to understand? How would a newcomer to this board know not to create a politics thread? Is the very mention of something political banned? I learned today there's another meaning to filibuster other than standing up on the floor of the Senate and speaking for 24 hours, but I'm afraid to put it in the Random Thread. So many questions.
One more. What would an unmoderated SabreSpace look like?
The question begs to be asked again: why not just stay out of the Politics Thread?
What did they do to you? It's OK. You can tell me. PM if you have to. Seriously, though, when was it decided there wouldn't be a politics thread? And I'm sure you realize the impracticality of banning all political speech in any Internet forum, even a sports forum. There will be no discussion of NFL blackouts and antitrust laws, no discussion of whether income tax rates could affect a free agent signing with the Sabres, no discussion if Terry convenes another meeting of elected officials at the arena to edumucate them on fracking, etc. etc. Maybe by March, our dear leader will have banned all foreigners from entering the U.S., preventing Modo from coming for the game. But it will not be discussed here. Politics is everywhere in life.
I enjoy politics more now that I don't spend time here talking about it. I'm focusing my energies into getting involved. And quite frankly I find little value in online debate at this point, and that's in all venues. I'm fine without it, for better or for worse.
