Call To Boycot U.s. Election Related Threads

Thu Sep 30, 2004 12:14 pm

This is a call to everyone to boycot any KERRY/BUSH/U.S. election thread for at least until a week before the elections.
Why you might ask? Here are some reasons:

- maybe 50% of the threads revolve around this issue
- every argument has been made dozens of times by either side, those not made yet can easily be made a week before the elections
- a good number of people from both camps contribute nothing but low quality postings to the debate
- it really gets boring after a while

I am 100% with you.

That is why I will suggest this thread's deletion (it is an election related thread, after all).  Wink/being sarcastic

Funny of all people to suggest this?

Frankly, I am sick of it myself. Same old thing.

Honestly though, it won't happen. Or will it?

Somehow I get the feeling that if Bush wasn't rising in the polls this thread wouldn't exist...

I actually like all the discussion over politics (provided it is done in a civil manner), because it gets everybody to think about politics and debate their points of view. I think it is a good thing to discuss politics (or at least it is better than no one caring about who is president, right?).

Well, it'd be nice if Alpha (Falcon) joined up on this movement like he'd promised before (would save ALOT of bandwidth), but he'd just waffle around about that one. No wonder his support lays with the Herman Munster candidate  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

A good start would be to have you stop creating some of these threads  Insane

Solarix has a point, even though there's way too many political threads about Bush/Kerry, there's also a growing number of these threads complaining about the number of Bush/Kerry threads  Wink/being sarcastic
I've also noticed some people going into personal attacks on other users when it comes to this thing, and other people getting obsessed with other users (take that thread about Alpha1/Falcon84 as an example).
