So, as many of you who hang out in these political threads know, I am pretty radical in my beliefs. I have very revolutionary beliefs that are contrary to most of the people on this site. Well, after around a year or so hanging out and posting relatively frequently in those threads, I have decided that I'm going to finally just pull the trigger and filter them out. Now as to why I have decided to do this, there are a few reasons.
- I like talking to politics, so it's a topic of personal interest to me. However, since joining this site I have pretty much found someone that I can discuss politics with, making this place less necessary for political talk
- I also engaged in political threads as a way to attempt to change people's opinion, as I saw an alarming number of people who spouted views and beliefs that I considered to be very dangerous. However, I've come to the conclusion that no amount of effort, sources, time, etc. will change these people's minds so there is no point in engaging in such a futile effort
- Let's just face it, this place is not the best place to go for political discussion. Proper political discussion doesn't really work well in a forum of this nature
