I've created a Politics and Religion forum for those of us who want it/need it/enjoy discussing such things. It also allows people who don't to avoid it.

Over time I'll move threads into it, but please use it for any new posts in that category.

I look forward to a heated discussion of what constitutes religion and politics!

But seriously, it's a sensible idea.

Well thank fuck for that. Hopefully the conspiracy nut will go post there & the rest of us can use JJ for the things it was intended.

I do recommend that anything obviously intended to incite a riot (like the tangent in the recently locked thread) get moved to the appropriate forum - Flamewarz. That way it gets the respect it deserves. ;)

I was going to call it "Sex, Politics and Religion", but we'd be repeating ourselves. ;-)

It's going to be interesting.

I was sooooooo tempted, but then I'd have been breaking the rule that only posters in FW are fair game.

I lay awake at night trying to find a solution, and it came to me in a blinding flash. Or maybe that was when the Mrs turned over and clobbered me in the nose. :P

It's been establised by precedent (Doc Forbin, Ronin + assorted sockpuppets) that if you write a post intended to start a riot, it gets moved to the appropriate forum along with the riot that ensues. There are an awful lot of threads in flamewarz that started out in JJ & were split off.

Just sayin'.

You just want an excuse to bring out the nukes.




I'm not saying it's a bad thing . . . .

I'm quietly satisfied with the current solution - though we won't know how it works until someone posts something. :?

certainly, it is better then some of the other solutions. I hope it remains a successful one

Stumbling through the fog, you encounter a strange man in a bowler hat, smoking a pipe. He takes it out of his mouth, and holds it up. "This is not a pipe," he says enigmatically.
"I'm pretty sure that IS a pipe, actually," you reply.
"This is not a pipe."
"Yes it is, you were smoking it just a second ago. Why have you got that huge apple in front of your face?"
"This is not a pipe."
"All right, fine, whatever." You turn and head back into the fog.
