Very true. We were amazed when we had a politics thread stay open for more than 20 earlier this fall.
With politics and religion, there isn't any discussion, its all just "this is what i think and you are wrong." A thread on the internet is in no way going to change my political beliefs, and when a thread called "When religion gets stupid" shows up, I am most definitely going to fight against what the thread starter is saying.
I don't understand this, when there is no flaming or cursing or nudity the When religion gets stupid thread get closed after 5 posts.
But the When girls don't put out runs over 170 posts, I wonder about this forum.
Can someone explain, please?
Religion and Politics incite anger and flaming. There was a complaint registered in the thread and I was considering shutting it down when I first saw it. The girls thread was a joke and actually turned into a decent discussion.
