Default Please move political threads to the "Political Asylum&

Political threads are taking over the News, Talk, Entertainment & Traffic forum!! As I type this the first six threads are about Air America leaving SIRIUS. Since there is a "Political Asylum" forum now, would it be possible to make that a public forum, and/or at least move those aforementioned threads and others into that forum? And, maybe put a sticky in the Talk forum to remind folks that there is a designated place to discuss politics in.

Some of us don't care to discuss politics, and it's very annoying having to wade through all of them. Not to mention, a lot of talk show threads are getting completely ignored because of those threads.


Thanks.

That's a tough one though. A lot of the threads about AAR, while becoming political in nature, continue to be about AAR on Sirius. If the thread is mostly about a station that is on, should be on, or was on Sirius, I think it should stay in the Streams forums.

It doesn't really matter what the intention of the threads were, if it's about one of those channels politics are always discussed.


Hello Mods?

Chad I read your post and these threads are monitored. If someone briefly mentions something political that does not make the whole thread political. There have been some moved and there have been some posters warned to quit making every thread political. There is much that goes on behind the scenes with moderating. Sorry if what we've done doesn't meet your satisfaction, but such is life. We don't manage the forum based on one persons opinion.

Well, when someone "briefly" mentions anything political in nature, others are going to start offering up their opinions as well. It's damn near impossible to have a thread about Air America or Patriot without someone offering their liberal or right wing opinions. Just read through any of the numerous Air America threads and you'll see exactly what I'm talking about.

I think the mods here do a great job. You make it sound as if I'm coming in here demanding that you remove those threads. I'm just simply giving feedback...isn't that what this forum is for?

If the Air America threads aren't going to be moved, could they at least be merged together since they're all essentially about the same thing?
