Quote from: Florestan on November 23, 2020, 10:52:49 AMA music forum which has an extensive section devoted to "anything, music excepted" and populated by people whose interests cover a wide range of topics besides music. Limiting the talk to music only, or even primarily, is downright impossible and from my point of view not even desirable. If I may paraphrase Mahler, a forum should be like the world, it must contain everything.
Quote from: Florestan on November 23, 2020, 10:56:17 AMIt doesn't even affect your participation in that much-maligned political thread, Karl.
Quote from: LKB on November 23, 2020, 11:33:30 AMI voted " no ".Any subject/thread could conceivably devolve into pettiness and vitriol, it need not involve politics.From the standpoint of convenience, it's much more desirable not to have to jump around to any number of sites because l feel like discussing politics ( or Mahler, Arecibo, SpaceX, aviation, WWll naval history... ).Most of us present ourselves with civility; for instances where someone temporarily loses the handle on their adulthood, the moderators have the requisite tools at their disposal. Trolling, of course, should not be tolerated once identified.Things will eventually quiet down, l am sure. ,LKB
Quote from: k a rl h e nn i ng on November 23, 2020, 12:16:48 PMHowbeit I voted yes, otherwise I agree on all points.
Quote from: SimonNZ on November 23, 2020, 02:13:32 PMAre we talking here about just the Trump thread? Or also the Brexit, Coronavirus and unimportant news threads?I'll second whoever said it would just be nice if they didn't appear on the "recent posts" feed, as one exchange can take over the whole list.
Quote from: SimonNZ on November 23, 2020, 02:28:58 PMI think you're referring there to the "show new replies to my posts", whereas I'm referring to the "recent posts" feed on the homepage, the one you'll see if you're a newbie considering the forum.
Quote from: Sterna on November 23, 2020, 10:50:19 AMWhen I voted, the YES votes were up 10 to 4.Now it's 10 to 14.NO WAY.This poll is rigged. Plenty of illegal bots have been voting here. They stole the election.Therefore I declare that the YES camp has won BIG and the politics section should be removed.
Quote from: Sterna on November 23, 2020, 10:23:01 AMValid points.And if someone joins this board because of these topics, well, I would find that weird, too.Isn't it strange though, that the death of Sean Connery and 'darn cats' do not lead to personal attacks, disrespect, mocking and trolling?
Quote from: Sterna on November 23, 2020, 10:23:01 AMMaybe Fauré and Autechre are not of interest to me. But others might be very interested. You and I are not the only members here.
Quote from: Sterna on November 23, 2020, 10:23:01 AMBesides that: I can get inspired by posts about music, and what other members here are enjoying. That's one of the main reasons I became a member here.
Quote from: Sterna on November 23, 2020, 10:23:01 AMWe have been through this before, but if politics is the main reason for you to participate on a music board, and you really think that other members have no interest in what you say or think about music at all, then I would suggest that you join a political board. To be honest, if I had the same ideas about music and talking about music as you, I would never ever think of joining a music board. No offense meant by the way.

Quote from: Dungeon Master on November 23, 2020, 04:55:38 PMIncreasing the post-count before members can post in the DinerI am open to further discussion, or suggestions.Rob
Quote from: SimonNZ on November 23, 2020, 05:10:56 PMCan a longer serving member than me say if there was a problem with political threads before 2015?
Quote from: SimonNZ on November 23, 2020, 05:39:31 PMThat is my suspicion, also.I'll reiterate what I said on page one: I think this will taper off quickly in the very near future without anyone needing to make any sweeping changes.
