The Lounge>Keep your political bullshit in DC and out of all other forums
DaFace 12:23 AM 12-01-2018
We're seeing an uptick in people randomly throwing out political bullshit in threads in the Lounge. Don't. Report people who do. They'll get booted from the thread for a first offense and more than that if they continue.

The end.

Due to continued reported posts and general frustrations around inserting politics into absolutely everything, and idea came up to restrict people to DC, much like the Romper Room.

So, everyone gets three thread bans as warnings, and after that will get a vacation in DC (the other forums will be view only). The thread bans and DC vacations will be posted in the transparency thread.

Just like several other rules, there's of course gray area and it doesn't really matter where the line is drawn, because those who can keep politics out of the Lounge will never come close to the line and those who can't will insist on running right up to it.

Generally speaking, we're talking about political opinions or blatantly inserting politics into a thread that isn't even a little bit on topic, or otherwise leaking DC BS into the Lounge or other forums.

It's probably somewhat unavoidable in some cases, so there's unfortunately a lot of grey area. I might suggest the following as an example:

Brook Pryor's actions suggest that she's acting as a SJW. (Factual, and hard to deny given the evidence, so likely fine in the Lounge within reason.)

SJW's and the media are ruining the country. (Blanket statements about a broad group of people. Opinion-based. Likely not appropriate for the Lounge.)

Broncos fans are all homosexuals. (Factual, and hard to deny given the evidence, so likely fine in the Lounge within reason.)

Raiders fans are a bunch of criminals. (Blanket statements about a broad group of people. Opinion-based. Likely not appropriate for the Lounge.)

If you can keep Billay's dumb ass out of DC you got a deal.

This has been an unwritten rule forever (so nothing is really changing), and it's now in the FAQ/punishable offenses for transparency.

Like Daface said, there are times when politics are part of a thread, whether it's major news and/or related to football, etc. However, those threads aren't a free pass to stand on your political soapbox*... that's what DC is for.

And if your political post isn't remotely related to the topic, don't be surprised if you get booted from the thread, especially if you repeatedly post political bullshit.

*As impossible as it sounds, you can actually respond to a thread about a shooting or whatever without (probably for the millionth time) posting your political opinion on gun control while calling out a political party and so forth.

Entirely sensible.

I don't REALLY think it's that fine of a line. If some social matter is central to the topic, it's going to come up, but that doesn't mean you have to make it a whole discussion about the social issues of our time.

Just stay on topic and there's not a problem. A lot of these issues are divisive and toxic to any discussion, and they really aren't required 99% of the time.

Sports used to be a distraction from the politics and other annoying real life issues. The problem is that the same scumbags (or at least scumbags who share the same ideology) who are shitting all over real life and now shitting all over sports, and that's just a fact. It's just another attack platform now. Denying it is like denying the wetness of water.

Kneeling for the anthem, refusing to visit the White House, using social media to destroy players' careers, there's only one side doing that. I happen to be on the other side. And happily so.
