    Thanks.

    Sometimes, it just feels like NSFD should be renamed Tribalism. It's certainly an accurate definition. You're either in full communion with the current zeitgeist, or you're an evil, stupid, "insert enemy of the zeitgeist here" -ist.

    No prob, I don't want you to feel alone on this. :)

    Did you see how the election forum was after trump won? Think as one may of Trump then and now, the reaction from many people there was disgusting, s many rule breaks went on in there.

    I don't even know if there was any legit punishment to some of the shit said there.

    It isn't that politics is the issue, its the general reaction that was deeply troubling.

    Exactly, politics isn't the issue, it's how debates in general are managed. It's also an issue in CrW and VS, and to some extent SB General and the War Room.

    It could be about RWBY, or Star Wars, and the underlying issue would be the same. Politics isn't the problem, otherwise the issue wouldn't be everywhere too.

    I couldn't stress this enough, it isn't about politics, it's about how discussions in general are handled. It's basicly "Stupid Shit on SB" in a nutshell, in a way.
