What political post isn't considered to be bait??

Since way before the Inauguration of Trump , trouble was brewing on Amirite and since he's been made President of the United States there have been hundreds possibly thousands of Political posts either For or Against.

Very few have been moderated in any way because I myself refuse to quash Political Opinion. So I had to put my Foot down and basically say months back.

"If You can dish it out , then you can take it"

The answer is No Political post because you both strongly disagree with each other and you may never agree and who likes to be told "you're WRONG" in so many imaginative ways ?

No one when it's something you Believe in Passionately.

This is not directed at you Carla ;) , never had one issue with your Political Debates in all these months.Never moderated you either come to think of it, if only others could lead by your example.

I do however know the difference between Debate and deliberately going out of the way to Antagonize another member. I often know the history between said members and I wasn't Born yesterday.



Happy Debating

Saying it with a line through it, is still saying it, man.

This site is populated by mostly straight white people. Makes me wonder why you feel compelled to shout it from the mountain.

I dont think anyone is paranoid, this is a f**king opinion site. No one is gonna break anyones nose, or get them fired, or steal thier spouse. Maybe it was a kneejerk reaction when it was pulled.

When you start throwing the word legitimate around for no reason ( you said that before your post) people get their hackles up.

That's interesting. I seem to recall a comment YOU made earlier today. Allow me to copy it.

"My opinion is that it is laughable.
Any time a white person (im one) has their sense of superiority chipped at, it is a good thing".

Do you recall that comment? If so, why did YOU feel compelled to "shout it from the mountaintops" that you are white? Wait, I know... "Context", right? (hehe)

And FYI, it was not I who started using the word "legitimate". I merely asked what it meant. Since no one would tell me, I started using it as well. I hope that's OK...if I do what others do :)

Oh, and you avoided my question. Mock WHO?

IN as much as any political post is likely to garner disagreement, I suppose your premise is correct.

And, I think Neaderthals comment is on target - some political factions refuse or maybe simply are unable to recognize any view other than their own.

Allowing political debate on an opinion site isn't heroic. It's democratic.
