Seriously, it's a totally useless forum full of ignorant threads/posts.

For a site that is supposed to deny ignorance, I've never seen such glaring examples of ignorance as I have in U.S Political Madness.

What would you rather, that we ignore it? If you think it is all BS, why not put your reasons in a thread and educate others on your insight? If we ignore it, we are only embracing ignorance.

Then you know where all the subjects you disdain are located, so you can more easily avoid them.

Just trying to put a positive spin on it for ya.

I'm personally glad it's there, and hope they won't change it.

How it seriously full of useless posts?

I know how to investigate through what might be useless or not useless. It takes a good amount of scrutiny, a good investigation, and a little common sense.

What I would consider useless is a post that is centered around the denial of potential information. I hope you reconsider your position.

First of all it's called the "Political Madness" forum not the "Political Wisdom" forum, thus the oft found silliness contained within is exactly where it belongs.

But to answer your concern, at the top of the Recent Posts page you will find this button:


If you click on it you won't see those threads ... furthermore, if you click on it and bookmark the page, it will save it that way and you'll never see those threads.

Keep in mind that for all the 'madness' there are some good threads and posts to be found there, so perhaps ignoring it all together isn't the thing to do.

Up to you.

Come on, really? That board is like the sands of the Coliseum. Where else can you find such raw honesty? I think it’s good for people to find a place to hate each other. It’s like soft porn for the potty mouth.

Seriously though, that site is so heavily moderated I had to find a dictionary and learn at least six new words.

Maybe they should just change the name to People are kinda' Pricks. It’s not bad, everybody should have their say. Why do we all have to agree or get along? If everyone thought the exact same thing about everything all the time than we should probably be speaking German...invoking Godwin’s law within 10 posts is still a pwn right? I’m getting old.

Yeah! We must put an end to all that nonsense that I don't agree with!


Even in the instance of death we cannot permit any deviation . . . we make the brain perfect before we blow it out

Well, I already omitted it so you all can save your venom and just lock this thread.

Thanks.

One person's ignorance is another man's wisdom my friend.

Just because you think it's useless does not make it so.

Please refrain from reading those threads if you aren't impressed with the content.

I thought everyone in this thread was quite polite about their comments even where they disagreed, so I'm not seeing the venom.

If this seems venomous to you, then I can understand why you omitted it.

There is a simple solution really. If you don't like the US Political Madness formum then don't do there. That goes for any other subjects that you don't like.

You certainly show sterling leadership qualities. I beg of you take up the mantle of nonignorance and lead us into the bright light of your awareness.

still if you can't run with the big dogs; stay on the porch!

Not going to happen.

As has been pointed out to you earlier in the thread, there is an option for you to remove the USPM forum from your recent posts page, effectively deleting it for YOU.

Others seem to enjoy it, it's politics, as evidenced by the fact that it is the 4th busiest forum over the last week, ahead of even the Alien/UFO forum.

This is possibly the stupidest thread I've ever seen. You provided absolutely no reasons as to why it should be closed. Did you really think your two sentence post would get it closed? What is the point of this?

Here's an idea: Ignore it. I don't like a lot of sections. You know what I do? Ignore them.

This thread is a waste of bandwidth.

Just out of curiosity, what's the busiest forum?

On topic: if ya don't like it, ya don't have to read it.

I'm not a big fan of POLar-TrICKS either. However, your request violates free speech. Usually those who have something to hide have a problem with free speech. Why deprive people who need to express about political events or subjects of an opportunity to participate on ATS. The subjects would just spill into other forums... and make work for the mod's that keep forums organized. This way they are conveniently filed away in one root so you do not have to fuss with them. Just think of it as a re-cycle bin.

Peace.
