And as far as "go post on some other site"... Well, why? I find most sites filled with trolls and spam bots. Not something I find here. I find these forums well modded and lots of thoughtfull posts made. If you ever spent an hour on the yahooka forums you would know what I mean.
There is a strict critera here for posting. I have had many posts deleted over the years. Lots moved to BTS. All of them aggravated me. I always thought the people that run this site are a bit preachy for my liking, but I dealt with it. It was quality.
The solution here is simple. It gets its own folder and subject matter needs to be clearly defined. Whats allowed and whats not. Then assign a mod or two (I'll do it!! I love banhammers!!). And keep it within the T&Cs. The folder could be "Conspricy on the Drug War" or something similar.
Just remember--- over 40% of Americans favor some sort of repeal of the prohibition on it. The numbers are growing..
Skeptic---> pimpin IS easy...
-runnin ATS isn't.

its probably a moot point at this point of the thread, but i have to say: what could be more obtuse than conflating growing cannabis with child molestation.

I think that people should, first, be able to get banned from that forum and not the entire site if the drug issue is the only place where there seems to be a problem.
Also, who would the U2U be sent to?
In the forum I think it would be okay to discuss illegal drug controversies, but personal stories and insults calling others "potheads" or saying "you don't understand because you're a drug-phobe" would be prohibited.
A sticky phrase ontop of the board and it's topics could work just as well as a U2U and would take some pressures off of the staff.
