Not intending offense or personal just my unhumble opinion on the subject

I'm certainly not offended... I wouldn't have asked had I not wanted honest opinions... idk if we need it or not, it was just something that we were discussing. There does seem to be a lot of race related discussion.

the thought was rather than dirty up many many threads and forums with racial bullshit, build a sandbox for it and let them fling their crap back and forth all day long!

and like Biscuit said...not offended either...just sick of it. and in my opinion, my mod powers have dwindled to the point where I don't think I can do much about it and even amoungst the group of mods/admins, we don't always agree on what stays and what goes.

thanks for asking the question Biscuit, I think it was worth seeing what the thoughts were

I think a separate forum. But for WHITE PEOPLE ONLY!

see...now as a mod, I should probably be warning you or giving you a vacation for that comment but it's all so inconsistent.

You have to post pics of your wedding party or your facebook profile etc. If you are not diverse you can't chime in on something you clearly aren't understanding.

I don't think it needs a subforum. That's kinda what The Tinderbox is for already.

My one complaint: Per the official rules, the tactic of just calling people racist (as opposed to actually debating them on ideas) is supposedly not allowed, but some of the more common practitioners of this tactic lately have been mods.

Frankly, it's a lame, lazy tactic and your argument looks weak when you do it.

Now I'm sure some will claim "but they actually are racist based on Post #XXXXX".

If you can actually prove that, then why aren't they banned?

If you can't, then you're just engaging in what's supposed to be disallowed; and honestly, why should anyone believe you're going to enforce a rule that you yourself regularly break?

Is it because you can't argue effectively without that particular crutch to fall back on?

I think you worry too much about it. We can still lock and delete threads that get out of hand.

I hate modding people and only do so when there is no other option.

I think we should let Cantrell be the mod for the racial box. Can we do guest mods? This would also be a cure for you staunch righties who control thought here. Or at least a step in the right direction.

    • Glad you can point to 1 off season to hang your hat on, when it comes to your opinion.  Doesn't give you much to stand on. What exactly are we crowning him anyways?   
    • I'm sure he's learned his lesson not to have a conversation with our fan base because of the way this way blown out of context. He didn't ask a question. He didn't imply anything. However, the same fans that only read headlines and then share posts on Facebook (without reading the article) decided to make all kinds of accusations and assumptions about this. So yeah....Bill should be more clear because we aren't very smart.  Edit: FYI...."if picked up" is not a question it's a statement. Should he have just assumed instead?
    • Nate Silver did an analysis on this, and not sure which party it would benefit more but what he did say was that it would likely hurt GOP more to pass it than for it to fail That is how unpopular this bill was
