Hello All,

As this political season continues to heat up, we have moved our Political Affairs forum to an external subreddit.

At NS we encourage thoughtful, honest, and respectful discussions.  We also like to support everyone's opinions and views in the world as long as it does not violate our Posting Guidelines.  Unfortunately, political debates can get heated and the last few months our nation has been a whirlwind of civil unrest, division between races, religion, and community.  This has led to some harsh discussions, personal attacks, and posting violations in our PA forum.  Thankfully our moderators have done a great job of being neutral and quick to resolve conflicts but, violations continue to grow and our moderator team is not properly staffed to handle the uptick.

While it makes us sad that we have to displace Political Affairs from our forums during this critical time, as an alternative we have found a subreddit that can support our member's needs.  The subreddit is as follows:

Politics Without Suppression
We stand for free speech. We will not ban legal content even if we find it odious or if we personally condemn it. Not because that's the law in the United States but because we believe in that ideal independently, and that's what we want to promote on our subreddit. We serve the community, we serve the ideals of free speech.


By clicking on the Political Affairs forum link on NS, it will open up a new tab and take you directly to the subreddit forum.  There you can continue sharing your options and discussions freely.  We have also archived the topics from the old PA forums and will make them available at a later date.

Thank you for being a valued member of NS and don't forget to vote in November!

Best,
Taylor K.

Just click on P.A and you'll be re-directed.

My concern is that the new link appears tied to one candidate's agenda.  All the headings seem to
be biased towards the Trump campaign.  Hopefully there is a more neutral arena for our discussions.

Thank You,

This site has washed its hands of a political forum and kicked the can down the street. Way down. If you want to find a new one you're on your own.

Tis sad that they have decided "in their wisdom" to not have a PA forum.

 I wonder if it will start "leaking" into other forums? I seem to remember seeing that was what it was designed to alleviate.

I, for one am glad to not have to deal with the cesspool that the PA forum had become. It was not "designed" to alleviate anything. It was designed to offer NS members a place to discuss politics but became a forum where slander and flaming was the norm. On any given day there were more flagged posts from this forum than all the other forums combined. 

As for anything "leaking" into other forums...be assured it won't be allowed to.

Oh man what fuckups you guys must have been! laugh I had not looked at it in the last month or so. Anyway....................................

In the unruly history of monger boards I've never heard of a forum that was so vile that it had to be eliminated. What a disgrace! Red never had to shut down a section of Arby. This is an astounding accomplishment.

Then go to Reddit and find a more suitable PAF and give us the link. This one seemed right up the alley of the guys who troll the PAF. No political correctness there.

This one seems more appropriate:

https://www.reddit.com/r/PoliticalDiscussion/

It appears to be less biased than the one you have offered... unless you happen to be a Stumpy sycophant like some of our esteemed members (^^^^ like those above.)

Another is this one:

https://www.reddit.com/r/politics/

Seems like more mainstream posts though.

This is about the SubReddit that the mods have chosen...

https://m.reddit.com/r/politics/comments/vhx8w/new_subreddit_rpolitic_politics_without/

Turns out to be a robot moderated site that has been infiltrated by Stumpy's minions.

This one might be a little better...

Would everyone prefer to use "https://www.reddit.com/r/PoliticalDiscussion/"?  We can link it to whatever people want.

I think it might be a bit better... the other seems a bit one sided.

And for our esteemed right wingers who want syncopation:

Good idea to pull the plug. It was starting to become like the UG on RB. As proof,  just look at the amount of deletes/edits in this thread announcing the change

----------------------------------------------------------------------

and the best to you, sir... but, pray tell, this "the making available of the topics from the PA forums", when exactly will that occur?

it's been well over a weak, so, obviously "not right away"...

before the election?...

If political comments have been moved......why are they still being allowed on this thread?

The archived forum was available all along...
All you had to do was search for any old post left by one of the frequent participants...
