If you lock every thread that devolves into political **** slinging, every thread will be locked.

I don't know if I ever saw a thread on here?  Ever stay on topic? The last one that came to mind was a thread that started out political.. and ended up talking about Chickens? Which was kind of interesting too... i learned a ton about chickens. :wave:

Why start a new rule when the EXISTING rule of posting non political topics in NHB is not uniformly enforced?

1. viewtopic.php?f=3&t=70471
2. viewtopic.php?f=3&t=70500

Sometimes (I'm being diplomatic) a thread goes off the rails and bickering overwhelms the topic.
That's the nature of these forums.  All threads eventually devolve into immature, little boy quips. That's 99.99% of @Cannonpointer 's posts.  You'd have to lock any thread Cannonpointer ever participated in.  But, then again, what do you expect from a pretend conservative who is a collectivist, FDR-dicksucking, Putin-worshipng, tranny-addicted public- bathroom toe-tapper?

Who was that foot-tapping Senator who got arrested for touching toes with a cop in an Airport bathroom?  Can't remember who that was.

I figured it would be an interesting set of views from the forum in general.

Most thread devolve in two ways:
******* and slander personal attacks with personal histories recounted citing only part of the story.
Info and issues tangential to the OP sap the energy; title long ago became a quasi-click bait.

In trying to clean some of the ****, I move (good and bad) stuff to Water Cooler.
It is supposedly a political forum No Holds Barred Political Forum.
I figure this includes a societal aspect as well.

But you see in this very thread that some people want everything left on the slab.
Some people want more sorting. You want your version of sorting for example.

I left the poll open for a week. I wanted to see how **** up it can get.
It's already **** up... :rofl:   :rofl:   :rofl:  
I expect not much will come of it.

It would be nice to wipe some to the crap off of the board. But a "pet project" might die... :rolleyes:  
Then there's the resulting Nuremberg Trials and charges of being tyrants.
The "Chosen" persecuted, criminals getting away with brutal posts and threads, woe is me...
"Holy ****, you petty prick! My thread was a work of art! That other guy DOES suck!"

Average chronological age here is probably 45-50 years.
Average emotional age here is 12-14 years.

to debunk hyperbole or hypothetical possibilities one must understand physical absolute compounding changes taking place in plain sight removing all established doubt handed down traditionally serving humanity.
