I come here to get away from that nonsense, and yet people insist on posting political posts. The difference between me and most of you is that I can make those posts go away.
Here's the deal. If you want a thread to stay here, and someone posts a political post in that thread, report it right away. I don't want to make editorial decisions about people's posts. There have been two threads where someone posted something political on page 1 and it wasn't reported until the thread had at least a couple more pages. So it's too much of a mess for us to clean up.
I like 50+, and I think it should be a friendly place. If people start feeling free to post about politics, it's not a friendly place.
