Default Politics

I was wondering if it were possible to move all of the political topics from the non-hair board to the political one? I'm all for debate and discussion, but there are so many topics over there right now that it's turning me off from the board.
Thank you for considering this.

I'd also like to add that the threads that are currently on politics are more crazy manners and etiquette wise than the political threads on non-hair are. I do realize I've been guilty of being over feisty, but some of the stuff is just getting crazy.

ETA: I do realize that there may be a delay in any response due to weather. I hope you folks at NC are safe!

I have to cosign on this. The political threads are getting to be too much, totally dominating the non-hair section. I don't mind a few, but enough is enough and too much is nasty!

I absolutely agree. Some of these gals don't have a clue how to have a diplomatic discussion about politics without resorting to being "Nasty". It is really ridiculous and the comments made are far too personal and uncalled for.

I will move the politics threads, and try to police that forum a bit more closely, given the sensitive topics.

If y'all could email me specific examples of nonsense, I'd be grateful. gretchen@naturallycurly.com

And yes, we're ok here in Austin. Kids got out early from school today because they wanted pepole off the roads as much as possible, given the influx of evacuees we've got from the coastal towns. Thank you for asking!

If only some of the political threads were going to be moved, what's the point? People are still putting political posts on the Non-Hair board.

It would be very helpful if you'd make note of the new ones that have popped up or of ones that I've missed. I'll be happy to move them.

There is still an awful lot of disrespect flying around those threads, there doesn't seem to be any "monitoring" when people can openly call someone STUPID for having their own opinion. I actually started a thread that may cause WW3 over there but I had to VENT!!!! Here's an idea how about get ridding of the Political threads altogether since people can't conduct themselves in a polite respectful manner. I bet there are plenty who could CARE LESS whether this was gone tomorrow!
