Please stop posting political threads in the Lounge and elsewhere.

These political posts and threads are offensive and there have been a lot of them lately. Please stop!

On the one hand, I appreciate you guys. And I enjoy having spirited discussions about whatever.

On the other hand, every once in awhile some of you let some political views slip out in the open, and while I'm very sympathetic to some, I'm honestly offended by others. And I don't like that I suddenly find myself disliking you as a person because you posted a politically-oriented comment, link, or cartoon that I find deplorable.

Factual is good. Funny is very good. Political only makes me dislike you.

Good reminder, Devin.

Politics, sex and religion are all topics we request our members not to post on and to find other venues to do so. If any of you see this happening, please use the report function as this is one of our stricter policies.
