The status updates...gone!

The less I know about people's political views, the better.

 

Correct. The internet is already chock-full of politics if you want to talk about the election. I can fully appreciate that people want to vent or celebrate, but this is not the place to do it. I've learned that I don't really want to know everyone's political leanings here. I've seen too many political (and religious) discussions go off the rails where people get heated and start attacking one another. Just don't need that here, so there's been a blanket ban on discussion of politics and religion for years. This includes using status updates, your avatar, and your signature to espouse your political/religious views.

 

I've toyed with the idea of giving people access to a "Politics & Religion" forum that would not normally be visible, but it would require too much moderation and I don't have the time or the will for that right now.

 

The satus updates box on the front page of the forum will come back.

That's just it. I try to stay away from fights. Sometimes I get sucked in because somebody pisses me off - this doesn't stem from differing views, but from belittling of mine or others'.

I just want to say something. I don't care who you voted for, I'm cool with you either way. We all have one great thing in common, we all love Atari. In a time when people are so bitterly divided it's great that we all have something that brings us all together.

I didn't even vote because I was unsure which candidate loves Atari the most.

Kinda like the mellower vibe without them tbh,but wouldn't mind them back either! :)

 

 

I've had people troll my statuses alot lately too. I post about my podcast show like others do and that's about it,but funny how trolls react sometimes like they don't have anything else better to do. They're pathetic.One time someone got mad at me for posting about my radio interview with porn actor Ron Jeremy saying it was "against God". Uh hello? No religious talk please! Oh and don't get me started when some troll got mad when I said I interviewed Nolan Bushnell LOL
