If you discuss politics on a gaming forum...

10 replies 154 views Edited Oct 7, 2012

...you're gonna have a bad time.

 

I'm just letting everyone know this. There's just too much of a mix of kids who THINK they know politics, die-hard political party members, Obama/Romney supporters no matter what, etc...nobody wins. You just end up hating on each other.

Sometimes, but not always, but you're really not telling us something we didn't already know.

 

There are a couple of Threads on here that have been doing "ok", no one has really "hated" on the other too much & generally people have been accepting of anothers position, something I myself try to do.

 

My political leanings are my own business & I may or may not agree with a certain view & sometimes I will say so, however I tend to stay out of both political & religious Threads as they "can" as you have suggested lead to one person "bashing" another, but with the ones so far, people have been pretty accepting & when they didn't agree they tried to back up their arguement, discussion is good, it just needs to be kept on an "adult" level rather than just shouting someone down.

 

P.S. Sorry for the text color, I just wanted to feel important & stand out on the Forums Smiley Tongue

Although, if you're voting for Obama, then you're doing it wrong.

Oh, well played...

The reason there won't be any politics on any gaming forms because why ?. It's highly offensive however, I agreed with guns_52 just vote the lone Who stronger to stand high. Why not Obama and Romney be friends ?. It's like back on the 2000s you remember that John F Kennedy got assassinated by a unknown sniper. The more they fight and the more politics you post one of them will be shot. So careful of what you saying people. This is a warning from the forms (MODS).

No, no, no. This is off topic, dear friend.

Trying to discuss video games may also end up with biased opinions, vs. biased opinions as well. So, this is a thread is a discussion on the discussion of politics....interesting.
