I'm not changing my mind on this. It's just become too much of a hassle that negatively impacts my personal life. And in my discussions with Mason, we didn't see that it was particularly good for business. He gave me the thumbs up on closing it a few weeks ago.

In a few months. Months; not days or weeks. If there are people who think an alternative politics forum is a good idea and there is a moderator who wants to take it on. (A moderator who is supported by a wide variety of people) I would consider opening something new.
I'd mod a politards forum with the following rules:

1) Don't actively suck
2) Stay on topic, while recognizing that what a thread is about changes organically throughout the life of the thread
3) Follow the site wide rules
4) Personal attacks in a framework that inculdes the previous three rules are encouraged

I would be happy to co-mod with ST and I'm sure we could come up with a set of rules that would be simple, clear, and easy to enforce.

Lol, these idiots couldn't keep their argument straight if their life depended on it. Its just slinging **** around non-stop.

Simply sharing your mongidig's posts is threatening the site? Hmmmm, maybe such ****ty posting shouldn't be permitted here then. You think? Or if Mat thinks its so important to host ****ty posting then he should make the argument to informed advertisers. Either way, going on and on about free speech to the point you stand up for the right of Nazis to speak and for posters on this site to spread their propaganda, and then getting mad that someone simply said they might share your speech is one of the most horrendous arguments I have seen in a long time.

For my part in getting the rules to be softer that allowed things to get to where they are. Sorry mods.
You're a fool to believe this. Most of you are. You hope and wish for things instead of understanding human nature and how people actually respond to things.

You're in for a lot of surprises, I suspect. Good luck.

This is basically Alpha

I loled at the sports threads that were bumped, based on the initial assumption that they were moved from SE.
