Hmmmm, I've been watching Fox News almost every day for the last 6 months or so and I can't recall that book being mentioned even once. Exactly who's been mentioning it?

If other people would like to see a separate section for political discussions, then we can do that. However, you are the first one to bring it up.

Yeah, that's an intelligent way to make your argument. If anyone disagrees with you, then just insult them.

Anyways, that picture is ridiculous and it doesn't even come close to representing reality.

To quote Nate, "You may not like him, or his approach but as our president he deserves our support." Then again I think that only applied to McCame...
If you recall, the restriction only applied to avatars, signatures and thread titles that deliberately vilified or slandered Obama. I have asked a couple of people to remove some signature images, and so far the only thread title that has crossed the line has been this one.

Good morning, over-simplification.

Even if the initial post wasn't directly related to Obama, you only need to scroll down 2 or 3 replies to see some slander.

Again, I don't care if anyone on here hates Obama, or just personally disagrees with his policies, or just wants to vent, or wants to be ignorant, I DONT CARE. Again, the fact that you can openly criticize our leader/government is part of what makes this country great.

What I don't like is having every other thread be an Obama/Liberal/Democratic bashing thread. Thats what I proposed another section in General Discussions for politics, so I can avoid that stuff. But I think I'm just going to have to miss out on the Book/Image/Quote/Video/Jokes/Misc threads here in the Woodshed and stay in the MMA section. So long Woodshed.

Like I said, if enough people want a separate 'Political Discussions' section, then I'll talk to Matt about it and we'll see about creating one. So I'm just waiting to hear some more support for your idea.

IMO, it's just as simple to skip over them. I keep seeing that "Ladies with Lower Back Tats" thread. I read it once and have ignored it since, but it seems to be popular with everybody else. It's not a big deal to just overlook threads that don't interest you.
