Heres the deal as I see it.
If we remove a confrontational right wing thread, we get complaints that we favour the left leaning political spectrum. (Hey! we're liberal hippy
softies pandering to Obama's administration.)
If we remove a confrontational left wing thread, we get complaints that we favour the right leaning political spectrum. (Hey! we're facist censoring
pseudo Nazi's who have it in for the Obama administration!)
If we leave things be, and let the members decide where to put their energies, we are, apparently - "idiots."
All ways round, you guys get to complain, and the staff/board gets criticised. No win situation for us.
This section is called "US Political Madness" for a reason. Whats going on out their in USAland isn't pretty, and requires something of a thick
skin. Those of a sensitive disposition need to put on some damn good armour, and hope that at some point the shooting dies down and people realise
that the Kool Aid they've been drinking has been spiked with loopy juice.
Until that day comes, please...if its offensive, let us know via the alert button. Contrary opinions to your political leanings however may not be
judged to be offensive solely on the basis of your opinion - all complaints are weighed against the T&C.
In the meantime, us Mods will be our bunker waiting for todays label to be applied to us. Its cosy down here and we have coffee, and occasionally
Intrepid plays us a tune on the accordian, and Semper will skin a rat that we've managed to catch for us to eat.
This post has been written with humour, but also with a gentle message that I hope you can understand. We do what we can.
