    Not really, I only am involved in the ones where it's something I feel particularly strong about . I dont agree with the way you had a go at my views here; sure you disagree with them, but I dont appreciate that you seem to be hinting that there people's views should be censored, with the view that your opinions are 'right'. From what I've seen so far, I disagree totally with your opinions, but does it mean yours are 'wrong' and mine are 'right'. No.

    But in all seriousness. The forum itself is not a bad idea but I agree renaming/branding wouldn't hurt and setting more guidelines. In the recent past most members managed to keep their cool and stay fair.

    In general, I dont find the politics forum that heated (although I do avoid the Azerbaijan/Armenia thread) and no one has managed to offend me yet, nor have I seen anything THAT outrageous, except for the mentioned thread.

    Almost all forums have off topic sections. Politics is an important part of daily life, and for obvious reasons it is a hotly discussed topic. It's handy to have that section as other off topic sections would have a disproportionate amount of political threads otherwise. We can't have a situation in which mods are just banning things that we want to talk about on the forum =P. Can you imagine how stupid it'd be if we randomly just had a site ban on political discussion.

    The politics forum is avoidable, just like all sections of this site =P.

    Yeah but nobody's argued that pal.

    I think you're deluded if you think an ESC forum is going to be inundated with political discussion that is outwith the contest.

    The politics section is the only place that politics can be discussed on the forum. If that is removed, then politics cant be discussed anywhere here.

    The off topic section would have a lot of political threads. Having a section dedicated to them makes it cleaner/easier to find basically.
