Thread: Is the .org the only place you discuss politics on the net?

  1. #1

    Default Is the .org the only place you discuss politics on the net?

    Continuing with another poll..

    Well ive always thought about looking for a purely political type forum like this one but the .org takes up way too much time already and ive never felt the need to spend even more time on politics.

    Are you guys active on any other political forums or even blogs?

    No...

    Most other sites are just flaming and flaming.

    Of course, I often goes here and there to read stuff but have yet to discover a site that is not filled with flame wars.

    I'll second that. This is the only political discussion board I've ever found that is in any way friendly. So no, I don't frequent any others.

    you are fat
    your dog smells like dead gerbil farts
    you dont know what you are talking about
    i hate you
    get out


    is any of that wildly innapropriate?
    probably all of it

    also, is it a troll if the insult is random, totally unreasonable and directed at a member who no one dislikes in any way?
    probably

    The Org is the only place for me. Don't have much time online each night so I may as well concentrate it in one spot.

    The .org is a good place to discuss politics. Most debaters are mature and well researched.

    I only discuss politics here. I used to post a fair deal on the metal board for my city, but I don't anymore. Even when I did, there were little-to-no politics involved.

    I debate politics here but not maths.
    Our genes maybe in the basement but it does not stop us chosing our point of view from the top.

    The politic here is a bit hawkish and it's a rather narrow selection of subjects that really create a discussion here. The company is nice and entertaining though...

    No, only here. The only other place place i used to post at was Warcraft3.com and I got banned a couple of times. I still haven't figured out why?

    I used to debate on thehistorychannel.co.uk, but now since I'm on here I don't there very often any more.

    I like the company alot here, but the politics really isn't that great, I don't think. I've seen much better and much worse, but this is the only place where I can speak with quite so many different nationalities, but the commonground is a video game. Not just politics as a sole interest.
