Let the mods do their job as they see fit.

Except not all mods are fit for this role. Politics should just be removed from the front page.

Then take it up with an admin



Politics really bring out the worst in some people it seems, god damn. Some of the responses people have towards others just for having a different opinion are embarrassing and just utterly stupid.

Some people are acting like they were personally insulted or some shit just because someone has a different opinion or view from theirs.

Yes, and it's even worse when some users act as if they're entitled to behave that way (or antagonize other users into battles). This is why I say we refine the rules and keep certain people out of political topics altogether. That way, those that want to reasonably express themselves (or discuss a topic) are free to do so.



                                                                                                             

There is a simple solution to this problem. Provide users with the ability to choose what sections of the forum showing up on the front page. The same way we can filter content on the "gamrconnect" domain.

No one will complain anymore and it's a solution that would please everybody. Getting the political topics off the front page completely would kill the discussion there and it would make vgchartz less enjoyable for me.

Would that actually be possible? Ban certain users from threads in the politics section but not elsewhere?



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Sounds like liberal facism to me.
Don't like them don't read them.
Political discourse by its nature is dirty.
Sounds like you just can't handle the heat and are upset that you can't control the narrative like you can with a gaming discussion.

You know very well that translates to banning anyone on the right and leaving the liberal left to circle jerk in political heaven.

That's not honest politics.

I'm not saying it's bad from a social perspective but if you are going to do that then just get rid of it altogether.

Just get rid of political topics in general. They're fucking awful.

Lol. A liberal here, I agree with the general message you are trying to convey, there will be no right way to moderate the political topics!

So just give users the option to filter them out of the home page of vgchartz and leave those who like those topics in peace
