I respect locking the thread. Definitely derailed multiple times. Deleting posts in the Random thread? Weird... Making a comment to keep it on topic... Weirder. I wasn't restarting that election thread in there. Just posted a funny meme. So... What direction are we taking this? Only a few people left. I agree the election thread was headache inducing at times. I, like many on here enjoy a good political conversation. Am I allowed to make a new thread? I'm sure a few have pondered it. But I'm also afraid it'll go sideways, much like the last one. It was one of the busiest threads on here. And there aren't many. Are we allowed to talk about politics now? If not the bolded New Post notification is gonna stay grey for longer. To face the facts, Boing definitely broke the proverbial camels back in that thread. There were definitely many a time I was left shaking my head asking "why?". But does his pushing to far ruin this for the rest of us? What do you want us to do Steve? What are others thoughts? I just want to continue venting about Trudeau and debating with those that carry that thread forward, but if I'm going to suddenly be policed everywhere I post in here, the milk that's already past its expiration date is going to finally sour. We suddenly have rules? It's been like 20 years without! . Not trying to be belligerent here, I get it. Just curious.
