Seems RTF'ers still want to talk politics on RTF.

You want it, you got it. It's YOUR resource to use to discuss what's important to you.

Racist comments, uncivil treatment of others, defamatory remarks, or any others outside forum guidelines can and will result in removal (banning) of those in violation for an undetermined period of time.

Enjoy your new place to talk Politics on the Gallery!

Well done, Chris. Anything political has its own place to reside, especially since we're now on a new four-year odyssey. Good job.;-)

All these months with no new forum, and now that the election is over, there is a new forum. That don't make no sense!

What about the avatar of the cute little girl sitting on the dead dog. Doesn't that freak you out?

Chris,

Should we still use GDG in the title?

Good question Paul.

The topic of Potus Place is Politics. So if the topic is political in nature, I'd say it fits the sub-forum. I'd think that no use of "GDG" or "off topic" would be required.

The groundrules of RTF still do apply, however. No attacks, defamatory stuff, racist, demeaning, porno, profane...etc..

But what is "political in nature?"

If I go hunting with the Governor, does that belong in POTUS Place?
If the Governor signs legislation creating a new conservation act, does that belong in PP?
If we need as many people as possible to call the Governor requesting he veto an anti-hunting bill, is that to be segregated too?

Absolutes work poorly in a contingent reality. :(

Kevin,

Please use your best judgement.

I'm not big on absoutes either.

If someone who has a history of posting anti-liberal content, chooses to post up something copy/pasting a blog criticizing a recent appointment by Obama, there's a pretty good chance that it will find its way to the Political Subforum. Hopefully that individual would already know that that is where it belongs, as it is surely intended to spur political debate. ;)
