I host a politics forum, you surely have seen it around in my signature (I don't sport it now, maybe I should do it again: URL is http://soloespolitica.com if anyone wants to shoot a peek). And I tell you: if all of you people commanded Spanish, you wouldn't last 30 minutes in the politics section of the forum

That's why we have an off-topic section, to cool off. And there you'd be quite happy, I think.

That's the reason why politics and religon have been isolated here.

You can only listen to the same old propaganda repeated so many times before you start developing brain damage.

On the question of how to let newbies know this section is an option:

Instead of stickies, y'all could use vBulletin's automated welcome PM to new members feature and stick a comment about it in there, if you'd like. They tend to get read more than the emails.

On the question of whether or not making this section opt-in, I'm agnostic. Whatever makes everyone happiest.

I might peek at those topics occasionally, but usually avoid them. Mostly because it's sometimes easier to be friends with people when you don't know all their political and religious views.

I disagree, though. Good friendships can weather the heat of one or two political arguments, because good friends know that the other one is a nice person they can trust.

I agree with that. I have many good friends and loved ones whose politics and religions are at odds with mine, and it's all good.

But I got to know them through other things, in real life. I don't think it's as easy to see and learn to love the whole person in online forums where politics are discussed.

I think this is a brilliant idea, after all reading and writing in all forms is an expression of free speech.

Well, you probably aren't agnostic - you just don't care , (which might actually be a sensible position to take for most of the the topics of on the Politics and Religion thread, (note to self: take own advice!))

LOL I think it's good advice too!

As for the word, I was using the second oxford definition.
Having a doubtful or non-committal attitude towards something:
"Until now I've been fairly agnostic about electoral reform"

http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/agnostic
I usually tend to be more conservative on the "growing language" issue, but that one is used a lot in my fields, and I've allowed myself to succumb...

I am not hardened or any kind of debater. But I am always curious and even more curious about so called loaded topics to discuss in civil and logical way. It's sad if we are still not ready in 21st century. With my regards to all, drdln
