Yeah, I understand the mudpit, but having started threads in other forums only to get mudpit-esque replies was disheartening. I had other threads planned that I scrapped because of it. The mudput allows certain things that creates a leniency in other boards that is troubling.
I dont really take it seriously either. But.. I know plenty do, and Ill be damned if I dont find it disturbing. Especially when I see people I love, family, succumbing to it in "real life." Sometimes its fun to play along, but theres that whole abyss staring back thing..

Seems like everyone is into politics now like it's the hottest TV show out.
Jeeze the majority of my life i was too busy having fun to even care what the difference between a Democrat and Republican.
When you get old and bored, you turn to politics.
I just feel bad for the young today who are so consumed by it.
