It can be confusing.
Basically you can post about the same topic in Breaking Alternative News and in the forum relevant to the discussion. You can not post about the same
topic in two Forums unless one is qualified to be in and posted in the BAN forum.
You can post the same topic inside the Political Mud Pit and once outside of it for those who choose to not be involved in mud slinging as many don't
wish to be a part of that madness. The same member can not however post both threads.
There are also other considerations as one general subject can encompass more than one topic to discuss.
Spinoffs are not allowed as a way to get around that. Spinoffs are more or less when someone instead of posting what should be a reply in a topic
instead uses that reply to start a new thread.
Topics that should be in the Mud Pit due to their nature and the content of the original post are removed, rather than moved to get people to post
muddy threads where they belong. Political trollery and mud slinging are never allowed outside of the Pit. If you post a topic with a muddy opening
post outside of the Pit, expect it to be removed if seen.
Some of this is subjective and requires moderation and a discussion among Staff before it's decided. For instance if a topic has not been discussed in
an extended time period, another thread on it will be allowed as the two threads are not competing for attention.
As with all things, remember we who moderate are a small number of volunteers who can't possibly see everything or read everything. We rely on other
members to help by alerting us to issues like duplicate threads. We have normal lives, normal jobs, families and all that comes with that.
I hope this helps.
