I want to get the opinion from you, the members here. I have received comments on both directions regarding political threads on this site and honestly do not know the best choice going forward. I had looked into seeing if I could make this forum viewable by only those that want to be able to see it, but it does not appear that is an easy or feasible option.
My question to you all is this: would you like to have the freedom to talk politics here amongst each other?
I run these boards, but I do it for all of us, not for my own personal kingdom. So it really is a matter of what you all want. If you as the members want to talk politics, that is your choice. I will say that I have my concerns. But if the threads stay in this forum, those that do not want to participate can just avoid reading any posts here? That is a question...
I personally will only moderate, I will not participate. As owner I think it is best if I keep my thoughts to myself. The only thing I will moderate is member interaction. I will not censor anything that does not violate the rules of these forums. So as long as the posters stay respectful it is up to them to debate the issues.
So, feed back please. Let me know what you all want. As I have said in the past, these boards are for you. I am always willing to try do make changes that make your interaction better here.
