If you want to allow open politics here without shame, just move all the topics to CR and delete this subforum.

I think DT as-is adds value though, so I hope you don't do that.

 

Not sure why you'd do that. I think the best solution would be to have a CR thread that everyone can debate policy and projections and all of that, and another that was purely for information and discussion thereof with legitimate, zero tolerance moderation of political posts, including those that are just a bunch of thinly veiled cable news codewords that are obvious bait.

There's only a few topics that come around to the DT that end up political. Just move those to the CR. No need to do away with this board. Make a matching DT thread if necessary but truly make it zero politics. Like actual zero, not what we got with the DT Covid thread which is a handful of posters tap dancing as close to the edge of political as possible whilst holding their arms in the air saying "NO POLITICS GO BACK TO THE CR!".

You just made a pretty blatant CR post in the protest thread. What irks me is hypocrisy of complaining about Cloak Roomers when posters just go about dropping political shit while pretending they're not.

If you, all of you, really want to keep politics out of the Daily Texan, stop making political posts - no matter how sly you think you're being.

right on cue, whaambulance.  did I say the bullhorn-ers were of one political side?  I said blacklab can run the board/restaurant how he sees fit.

So in this case the board is the restaurant and the posters on this board are the ones assaulting you? I mean what exactly is this forum for if not discussion? Should we moderate all discussion everywhere, if someone doesn't like a movie can that person be banned from the thread discussing said movie? Can a Sooner ask that people stop saying OU sucks on the football board?

I think MK, BamaChick, Hugo, and that pederast Bad Teammate need a Agnor-style blessing.

Do you enjoy reading shit like this?

  • Why do y’all argue with that meth headed fascist?
  • You are a dumbass
  • Bro do you even orange man bad?
  • List the virtues of Jesus Christ’s teachings that Donald Trump embodies....
  • Yeah says the party of civil war cosplayers when they can’t get their hair cut 
  • Yeah, says the party of actually burning shit down.
  • Says the party that embraces white supremacists and turn a blind eye to their instigation 

Certain people were allowed to go buckwild on the DT COVID thread and trash other posters at will for a long time and nothing was ever done about it so it seems weird to be all up in arms about personal attacks now. 

As far as the partisan stuff goes, it was entirely possible to discuss peaceful protesters in DC getting lit up before curfew without bringing up Trump.

I suppose there are many topics that are inherently political. Perhaps a better term would be partisan.

Please keep the partisan bullshit in the CR. It is a beating, as anytime a cloak roomer crosses that line in DT, his or her opposite-minded counterpart shows up to point out what a piece of shit that cloak roomer is, and how much like Hitler he or she is, and then the original cloak roomer's buddies come to his or her defense to declare what a piece of shit the other person is and how they are the ones like Hitler, yada yada yada.

And if the poo flinging weren't enough, the cloak roomers whine all the fucking time. Too many of them feel like what they believe, what they have to say is SO important, that it MUST BE SEEN AND READ by all of Surly.

I'm sure there are exceptions, but for too many cloak roomers, this seems to be the norm.

This is the correct answer. It's not politics per se, but the blind partisanship that needs to stay in the CR.

In spite of however many dozens of posts you have in the no politics Covid thread, are you actually pretending the complaints about politics came from a single side? You either have amnesia or you're lying.

are you fucking dense?  Blacklab said how would you like it if a bunch of people with bullhorns came into a nice restaurant and start blaring about politics.  I said I would expect the owners of the restaurant to decide whether to kick someone out.  meaning blacklab can do what he wants its HIS board. I have never reported or complained about one single post or poster to a moderator ever.  you?

I read that particular post and it doesn’t even register as slightly political to me. I’m sure his posting history or the specific topic register it that way to you, but I saw your post and had to do a double take because I just read right by it initially. I think just because someone quotes a political source, uses some jargon that only the overly political people recognize, etc. doesn’t necessarily make it a CR’d political post.

Why?

I dont agree politically with much of what they say but MK and bamachick atleast bring value to other sub discussion.

I stop visiting the cr, I basically have and now I sleep better at night. (Though that may be because of bourbon..)

A thread on current events where opinions are not allowed is kind of boring and meaningless.  Opinions on current events necessarily will contain some elements of a political nature.  However, it seems opinions that contain some elements of a political nature cannot get expressed with resorting to juvenile name calling which then results in responses that are nothing more than name calling. The end result is a thread which goes on for pages of nothing except two juvenile posters calling each other names. I'm of the opinion that all threads of a non-sports or UT nature that don't contain pictures of tits and ass, tales of sexual escapades, aggy or sooner derision, humorous photoshops or paint pictures, or recipes should be immediately deleted.

I really don't care about you pointing my posts out.  Its your continued vagina rubbing that is so off putting and beneath you.  you already had to admit you misread my other post on this thread.  we need to get you a jump to conclusions mat.

On both the COVID thread and the riot thread it is next to impossible to not have some type of political talk. They are completely intertwined. Trying to moderate it with a broad brush is an exercise in futility. My vote is allow some political talk in both threads and only moderate the most egregious posts. So option C.

Edit: With the caveat that when any 2 posters have a cripple fight with one another to ban them both for 3 days. I think that is the only thing that is tough to read through, when you see 2 posters go back and forth with each other on some random political tangent for like an entire page. That is what is annoying to me.

It would be nice to be able to get facts, curve flattening, etc., without having to read dozens of posts of political crap. I can go to CR for political crap.

I appreciate the effort but without clearly defining what “political talk” is, this poll isn’t exactly informative.  
 

Brisket’s thread on reforming police is by definition a political discussion because it takes political will to accomplish any kind of meaningful reform in almost every aspect of society.  Discussions on anything to do with the powers of the state are highly political. 

I think the problem is when people start with a us vs them starting point in the CR way. r v d. If something can talk just of reform or anything above that culture war then its fine in my book. fine lines, yes i know

I found this thread very amusing. Also, it's a great way to help determine how best to increase your ignore list.

A+ would read again.
