    It went bye-bye..

    It was by far the most volatile forum of the site and some spillage carried over into the football forums.

    And basically the staff voted to remove it.

    I don't miss it, at all.

    I love that it's gone. People take it so personally and then it spills into the rest of the forum. People are much more civil when they don't know each other's politics.

    Registered on the second incarnation that was provided, read for a few minutes, never went back.

    No point to it really.

    To my knowledge, there was never a religious section.

    Politics, yes. It always started off well enough. Unfortunately, a lack of maturity can only be hidden for so long. Some posters were simply unable to engage in political discussions without resorting to insults or personal attacks or threatening never to return due to some slight they thought they received.

    Look, I understand that not everyone can be me. I have a unique intellectual capacity to weather all manner of contentious issue in a calm and purely rational manner. But a little more maturity would've been nice.... (<----:laugh2:)

    They are serious about it as well. I made a thread about a certain politician looking like an NFL head coach and it got deleted so that no arguments took place lol

    I'm confident you'd be suprised.
