    Why post all of this Political stuff on here?

    I understand that people want to comment on some news story and stuff, because it makes them feel better.. but I think that whatever you post… there is going to be someone around, to post against whatever you are posting.. so what good does all of that do? It’s kind of like shaving.. then expecting someone to put gasoline on your face right afterwards… and lighting the match.. Maybe an idea is to post your views to vent, and have no one reply to your post? I don't know.. I guess, I don't like to see all my Speedguide pals get angry at each other..

    And what good is THIS post doing?

    You can post your opinions and raves on all the vapid pop culture indulgences if you want -- some of choose to go another direction.

    Deal with it.

    somtimes it is too much and i am kind of guilty of starting too many threads of the sort myself

    I'm not angry...but I AM sick of hearing this call for compartmentalizing certain posts while the 5,667th "HARHARHAR funny vid of dog peeing on a cupcake" type posts proliferate.

    Some people just want to throw a veil over things and hope they just go away.

    I can see your point..

    Maybe there should be two seperate fourms then? One for political real world issue topics and then one for comedy?

    No, there should be NO separation.

    There is no inherent compulsion to read or reply to any thread, yet some here would like to see others muzzled for whatever reason it is they depise hearing an opposing viewpoint.

    I care because it would be a victory to people like yourself who only want to hear about puppies and sunshine and e'erthang gunna be a'ight.

    In 6 months of a separate section being created, you and others would be bitching about "personal attacks" and the same garbage you're whining about now.

    Many don't even allow threads about religion/politics.
