What makes DC a cesspool?

A lighter topic for the weekenders among us:

What makes this forum a cesspool, in your eyes?

We often have people on CP claim that this forum is a cesspool, and they "don't even look in there."

What's keeping people out? What's wrong with this forum?

No more a cesspool than endless crap about Geno love. All a matter of perspective.

The vocal majority of this forum are too rigid in their thinking. They seem to only see black and white. I think the world has a lot more grey to people in general.

This forum is a caricature of the worst of American partisan politics.

foo much over the top personal attacks instead of attacking the persons position. Nothing is out of bounds. Mothers, kids nothing is out of bounds.

This is a very far right dominated forum. Look at the polls. National polls say 92% of the American public and 85% of the NRA favor background checks but this forum can't even make it to 50%. This isn't an isolated poll or issue. It's the norm.

Most people wont enter here because they don't want to offend or get people pissed off at them. Just this week I received some venom for no good reason. Another occasional poster stuck up for me saying its just DC that I'm really an okay guy.

I you are thinking of wanting more participation all you have to do is establish some guidelines and rules about personal insults.

I don't consider calling someone "detached from reality" (due to an inability to decipher facts from satire) a form of belittling.

Depends if they really are. Both sides call that one on each other when the other's views are just far from theirs. It seems the lefties use such things more from my observation. That and "crazy."

Most people answer polls, as well as vote, with their guts. Not because they're informed,even know the Constitution or why certain things were put in it. Often, they're polled after the mainstream media hammers them with how they want to shape their thinking. Majorities do not get to infringe rights. That's the bottom line.

Now you're an expert on polling methodologies and the accuracy of the results. Is there anything that you think you don't know?

There are some very smart people on both sides of the isle in here which is why I still come in here but it would be nice to have discussions without all the nonsense.
Great post is great.

To elaborate on what I posted before on this:
We HAVE background checks!
It is a lie to imply that we don't. BCs are extensive for automatic weapons, which are highly regulated, VERY difficult to get and expensive ( $20-40k). Background checks for these are very extensive and requires fingerprinting. It takes 6 months to be approved by the ATF. They are also wildly inaccurate from what I've read.

Obama is a liar when he says: "We don't need military rifles on the streets of America." They are not on the streets of America. He is trying to scare people.

The background checks for other guns uses an extensive form with detailed questions on mental health, criminal history etc. This is required by law.

But some people need a poll?
