    Worked fine for me.  Maybe you need to turn your computer off and then back on.

    Of course it is still there. You used to be able to do a search of the topics in politics, but that went away a while back. It is weird that it shows up as a section when viewing the forum as a non member.

    I would say that the moderators would agree that a civil discussion of politics is acceptable.

    "The politics forum still exists"
    Apparently a free for all in the Northeast section. I guess all you have to do is ask nicely for a thread to be left up.

    you mean Morroco Maddness didn't get banned for life over in NE for his political rant..

    I guess it's not who you know but who you blow in this place?

    Impossible? The forum from the pics has the same number of member online at the moment as FS does. Check this out:

     Wow, just realized that the other forums OT forum has 64,554 threads and their Politics forum has 64,450!


    Their next largest forum is "Deer Hunting" with 63,021. Then "Fresh Water Fishing" with 55,587.


    They are very strict on their moderation.

    You make no sense. What does number of hits on one site versus the other have to do with civility on a political forum?

    Are you saying the forum should tolerate rudeness, incivility, denigration, name calling, humiliation and verbal attacks on family members just so the site has more hits?

    From the Administrator of the "other forum":

    My first warning didn't work so this is my last warning. If you can't converse with someone in this forum without calling them a "commie" or questioning their intellect or other ad hominem attacks then this forum is not for you.

    Most everybody here is a brother hunter or fisherman or both. Show them the respect they deserve. Fun is fun but a lot of what y'all are posting is not in jest and in fact it's just trash and it's turning this forum into a sewer and we on the staff aren't going to allow that to happen.

    Mama told you if you don't have something nice to say about somebody then don't say anything at all. If you can't follow mama's advice daddy will pull his belt off and educate you about why mama was right and that goes for both friend and foe. Spread that word far and wide lest some unsuspecting fool doesn't get the picture.

    Debate with passion, poke fun, use hyperbole to make your point but lay off the personal attacks.

    Gee, wonder why those couple of guys responsible for banning or driving away so many long time members are getting so defensive?

    Are you being obtuse? I said or implied nothing of the sort. Actually, my point was the opposite of your assumption.

    You stated that a civil discussion is impossible. I gave an example of a forum that had civil discussion.

    LOL I never posted or commented on a politics forum.Thats not why I am here on a fishing  forum.

    LOL.........you really like that word don't you?

    Yes! Ever since I saw that movie Shawshank Redemption I have always thought that was the most passive aggressive thing someone could say. I use that word like a $2 hooker!

    All bull aside, the points I was trying to make was there could be a political forum on a "family type" forum and I was surprised  that the Political forum on that other site got so much traffic.

    When we had a political forum here I rarely ventured in there.

    I rarely venture into the political forum on the other site.

    As it is, I'm a guest here and I try to color inside the lines. I imagine if I get too far outside the lines I'll join the band.

    lol.. your definition of triggered is suspect as most things you say. Its pretty simple.... if the point of closing the forum so that new comers weren't scared or because it didn't represent the principles of the main forum then it has failed. I am sure they dont want to delete the forum because of the post count. At one point it was 1/3 of the total place.

    Wait, wouldn't that be misleading to advertisers whose ad rate is based on traffic?

      I think the forum is doing very well because of all the traffic created by all the posts about the politics forum being gone.
