I'm of the opinion that if you dont like a section dont venture in there which is why I've stayed away from the controversial topics primarily, but from the perspective of the guys that moderate these forums voluntarily mind you, I can see this being the appropriate move. The squeaky wheel has been getting the grease for a long time now, time to cut that son of a gun off. There's plenty of places to talk politics. Create a PM if you really need to go to keyboard battle.
The Mod team and Rocketz have been discussing the divide that political threads continue to create in the Muthead community. Effective immediately, we've agreed that we're going to take a break from them. Political threads and posts will no longer be allowed on Muthead for the foreseeable future.
This site has always been about a community built around a football video game. As a natural extension of those gaming topics, the community wanted to talk about topics ranging from everything about what you've eaten today to music and movies to problems at home. We've embraced that this site has become far more than a place to discuss video games to many of you. While the site does have a posting Code of Conduct, we've always embraced and encouraged differing opinions, provided they are presented respectfully, and have done our best not to censor topics except in extreme circumstances.
Political threads however, have proven time and time again not to turn into discussions. Despite our best efforts, they have led to arguments, trolling, and people feeling like they have a personal pulpit to insult others. We will always look out for the community first, and the reality is that there is nothing dividing the community more at the moment than political threads. With that thought in mind, we're going to be taking a break from them. It's out hope that without this hyper-sensitive topic dividing us, that we can get back to discussions in General Chat that unite us. Perhaps in the future we will find a path that lets us get back to discussing them without the problems we've had recently.
As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to PM me or any member of the Mod team.
