Keep your political bullshit in DC and out of all other forums

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.

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 safe to say thread bans aren't working, at least for the handful of people who simply can't keep politics out of any given conversation.

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.

One would have to assume threads like the Whitlock thread in the main forum either need to be moved or not apply.

This is the truth. We saw how it went in the non-political COVID thread. I have my doubts fairness rules the day.

I hadn't clicked on that one in a couple days (or read the entire article), so good call on moving it.


In general, future threads like that still apply, no matter how destined they are for DC, and posting political threads in the wrong forum follows the same rules.

I try to give people the benefit of the doubt when it comes to those threads, and most people will still keep politics out of it (I assume for that particular one, a lot of people could speak to ratings and what not and leave the rest of it in DC)... and of course that's the shitty part of this, where it's infiltrated every aspect of our lives.
