Board Cleanup (8)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-09-20 11:59 ID:q1+QvhIW This thread was merged from the former /politics/ board. You can view the archive here.

Ok, this will not work.

This board is for discussing politics. This sort of implies a fairly high standard of discourse, with well thought-out arguments and the ability to back your statements up. Anything less means the board would descend into a useless flame-fest.

As it happens, that is exactly what has happened. This must stop, or this board will be useless and we will have no real choice but to delete it entirely.

In an attempt to get things back on course, I have now deleted some of the absolutely worst recent threads, and permasaged some. I really hate to have to step up moderation here, but if you people can't behave yourself, there is no real choice. So from now, try to stick to the following guidelines:

  1. Do not start threads for the first controversial little idea that pops into your head. Start threads on general topics, and do your best to start the off with a neutral tone. You can post your opinions later in the thread, but I do not want to see any more threads that just consist of a question phrased to piss off your opponents.
  2. Do not post about your bigotry. I don't want to ban all discussion about racism, as it is an important topic, but if you really have to post about it, post well-reasoned arguments and do not just post the equivalent of "I hate nigger lol".
  3. Think before you post. Please, think before you post. Even better, research before you post. Do not post a knee-jerk reaction to what somebody says, think things through and see if you can back up your statements with facts first.

In summary: This is an adult board. We argue like adults in here. Or at the very least, the way adults think they should argue.

I wish to belatedly comment by proxy of a great lexicographer - critic - essayist - man of wits, who died a while ago:

"Sir, a woman's preaching is like a dog's walking on his hind legs. It is not done well; but you are surprised to find it done at all."

  1. This is THE INTERNET, and not a particularily sanitary part of it either. Expecting the locals to do research (HA!) is about as realistic an expectation as expecting solid bricks o' gold to fall outta my ass. Videlicet the language board. Or even the early threads of this one, spearheaded by an individual named after a foreign minister.
  2. Well-reasoned arguments? On politicks? Sir, may I beg you to look around - in any stratum you desire - what happens when people are concerned with politicks, and then re-read your own statement there!

7 Post deleted.
