Politics forum. What an utter load of shite.

Does discussing issues affecting us upset the poor little snowflakes who can't string a sentence together?

These threads need to be put back into GCC. It's ludicrous to separate discussions with a political flavour from everyday life.

Give up on this, Mods, and restore it. It's just plain stupid.

A shame that some of the great issues of our time have been put in a barely used sub forum.

As someone very interested in this stuff I would say Ďitís use defines its wantí.

Although I enjoy the general chit chat/politics stuff more on this site than I do engaging in why itís a great idea to sell zaha or sakho; nevertheless itís a football forum.

As long as the new forum works the same (when it can), Iím at a loss to understand the angst. If politics dies a death on here so be it. Football was the intent of the creator. The creator or the mods havenít killed it - it will run its natural course. It will be a popular forum or it wonít. The forum discussing everything else will equally be popular or it wonít.

Itís two clicks away. As long as all forums have the same functionality (when they can) whatís the difference?

If its just a football forum, then why have any other subject matter at all?

I have seen many forums on other sites evolve over time, often better than from where they started, and the BBS is no exception. The sheer numbers in membership has always made it more than just another football forum.

It’s not just a football forum. We all know that. It’s one where we chit and chat. If my interest was focused on politics so much, I would probably join a political organisation or indeed online forum. Politics for me is just general chit chat. It’s just life.

And, to HP’s point, being two clicks away can make a very big difference, depending on how you use the BBS.

Not sure I care about this bit though.


My issue with it is that it's very difficult to not get political in general chit chat and vice versa.

It's just a personal thing : I tend to have the BBS open whilst writing (I have to write a lot), just as a brief distraction. And that for me is a single window, not multiple ones.

It's a lowest common denominator thing - a few irritated clucks about all the annoying political stuff on a footie board and presto! the nasty intrusive posts are whipped away so that right-thinking *****hinking?) members won't have to put up with that annoying special interest political wittering.

I agree that the political discourse on both sides can be pretty partisan but surely the wonder is that it happened at all?

Of course it still can be, but it has been put in its ghetto so proper people never have to worry about it all at all.

Presumably unless someone made a point of relentlessly politicising threads in GCC there wouldn't be an issue if GCC threads had political elements?

I have for instance seen Brexit mentioned in the CPFC threads in the past but I am pretty sure no one has been reprimanded for it.

When I first joined the BBS the majority of posts were a group of friends organizing their social life. As they were mostly Palace fans some football stuff, as well as a lot of non-football stuff, was thrown in.
