mods: can we have ONE pro-obama & ONE anti-obama thread in political subforum

can we have ONE pro obama and ONE anti obama thread in political subforum.

really how many threads can we have that are "obama is a fool" and "obama is god" can we have?

"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"

She's got a point so long as the Democratic Candidates Support Thread (a misnomer in its title once the '08 election had passed) isn't counted towards the "one each" suggested.

That one is continually so cluttered with endless photo arrays (mostly posted by Pureracket) and then repetition of the pics in quotes of those posts that its not a "discussion thread".

Though it would be better if there were serious debate re. where (and even why) the President is right vs. wrong, that rarely happens here, and posters can't be "forced" 2B open to other opinions.

How do you know that's not what they're trying to find out?

This question came about in a thread of mine this morning in which she stated this concern.

I find it rather odd that if you do a search history of hers she's posted many Obama threads.

One needs to ask...Why the phony concern now?

One doesn't really need to ask that - especially as you seem to have already made up your mind on the answer by implying the concern is fake.

Still, if you feel particularly compelled, then you can always PM her.

Wigglytuff, I accept your point but honestly the idea is just not practical.

Every time Obama opens his mouth the press want to cover it and it generates thread(s) of lovers and haters. Every poster wants to argue their thread should be separate because they want to draw attention to a certain point.

It does spam the political subforum but that forum now exists primarily to prevent spamming of non-tennis. We all have to just accept it for what it is.

What would this really accomplish Kart? Seriously


I'll try & do my part by limiting myself to the amount of Pro/Con Obama threads I submit!

I don't imagine it would have accomplished much but what I was trying to say was that it was a discussion to be had outside of this thread.

It's entirely up to you how much you do or don't limit the threads you submit. To have any real impact, it would require more than just you signing up to such an incentive.

ok thats far. i agree thinking about it differently (to keep non tennis from overflowing with political spam).

and you are right i am not sure either how it would be. i bought it here to see how viable an idea it is or is not. plus i think its only been in past few months that non-tennis has returned to its potpourri of insanity goodness.
