the fall of non-tennis!!!

IMO non tennis needs to be split into two sections one for politics and religion and one free of politics and religion.

because right now most of the threads are about some political issue or another and threads NOT about politics sink quickly and some are rather good!! just IMO

can this be done? do others want this?

"racism is dead, it died when MLK walked on a bridge and freed the slaves. Now we have a socialist Kenyan president who is not an American and if anyone mentions race they are a reverse racist (while racism is dead, reverse racism is alive and well.) #whattheyteachyouatfox"

Re: the fall of non-tennis!!!

I remember 3-4 years ago when there would only ever be 1-2 political threads on the front page of NT but now every thread becomes politics.

I think you can blame samsung and many many many others for that change.

at first its ok to like go in one or two threads and talk politics but it feels like non-tennis IS politics.

do you agree with this change?

This might be a bit radical, but they could even just put all political discussions in a single thread and people would just talk about multiple political issues (usually USA vs Europe, USA vs China, USA vs Russia, USA vs the Middle East so they're all interlinked anyway ) in a single thread.

i dont know how people would feel if it was all in ONE thread that might create mutiny and more chaos. (and give samsung a heart attack !! ) that is why i thought its own section might be good

Meh, I hate this. I read the occasional political thread, but I'm sure I'll never go into this political subforum thingy...

Re: the fall of non-tennis!!!

It's only for a few weeks .

On the plus side, now there's no distraction from the quality topics on the first page of non-tennis like 'who's your favourite Spice Girl?' and 'what are you eating tonight?'

I preferred the shower thread myself, and I would have thought you give at least an honorary mention to the looks thread.
