These Israel vs. Palestine threads have been getting really out of hand as of late. There are no less than 4 concurrent discussions on this issue, with new threads rearing their annoying little heads on a daily basis. In addition, we've been inundated with delete requests related to these threads; 83% of such requests I fielded today originated in Israel/Palestine threads. This issue has been discussed to death and the afterlife, with no new contributions being offered other than the same old intractable arguments, personal attacks, name-calling and flared tempers spiraling towards a bottomless abyss.
In the future, all Israel/Palestine topics will be limited to ONE discussion per human lifespan. Until the thread naturally dies out, no one may start another. Violations of this will be deleted without warning. Please bear in mind that in the end, this is the same standard expected of all other topics on A.Net.
Hopefully, the extra energy saved from not doing battle in meaningless Israel/Palestine discussions can be used to lead longer, more productive lives.
