Political Topics/Alternate Forum? Updated with link
I love this forum, not just because of the topic, but because of how well educated, informed, and polite our member base is.
With that said, this coming election is without a doubt, the most important election that has occurred in my lifetime, and I was wondering if there is another forum that you guys frequent that has similar etiquette and respectfulness that this site has.
I find this election too important to sit out on the political debate, and yet, do not wish to partake in the trivial, nonsensical, debasing commentary that is frequent in many of the online forums.
I deeply respect this forum's membership and opinions, and would very much enjoy a forum dedicated, or that allowed, political discourse that included many of the members of DC.
Do any of you know of such a forum, or would you be interested in joining such a forum if others of us would, at least until November.
For me, DC was one of the first online forums I ever joined, and since then, I have joined a few others and have been greatly disappointed, both with the level of knowledge, and the respectfulness that was shown to their fellow members.
DC will always be my favorite forum, but for the next 2 months or so, my 2A rights are not the only ones that are under the gun.
So, I guess what I am asking is, will a member of this forum endorse another online forum where political discourse is allowed, and will members of this forum, who I respect greatly, join that other forum so that I may hear your opinions, thoughts, and arguments.
Obviously, I know some of you from several different forums; some of which allow political discourse, some do not, and as yet, none of the disagreements seem to have spilled over to this forum.
If we do set something like this up, I would greatly appreciate, and in fact, implore you to 'leave it at the door', so to speak.
ETA: Please do not mention any political topics or ideals in this thread.
