    I liked this website because of the fact that political discussion is not allowed. Not that I'm adverse to political discussion but as mentioned there are plenty of other websites where I can do that. If my vote means anything I vote to keep politics out of all AlpineZone forums.

    I get tired of certain members ruining threads. If you want to flame each other, just do it via private message. Most of the rest of us don't care.

    Rather than locking a particular thread, I'd rather that certain members just get locked out of threads they politicize. The "one change" thread is a great example of one that got off to a good start, but is starting to go downhill.

    We don't allow it. not sure which thread you are referring to, but we should have caught that.



    Political discussions get irrationally heated and sooner or later someone gets offended. Then the complaints get directed to the mods. Please don't do it.
    Furture of the Ski Industry is not even about the OP any more

    Re the subforum idea: people will get pissed at each other and it WILL effect other forums. I don't see humans as being able to separate feelings based on the forum they are posting in.

    btw... people have been claiming that for indoor growing, this miracle plant grows better with elevated levels of the miracle molecule in the atmosphere. They shoot for over 1000 ppm.

    IMO, lots of political issues relate to the ski/ride industry. To decouple this would make this place monolithic..... we all love to ski & ride, there's so much one can talk about after that.
    I rather be @ss noodling

    Too much profit made & spread around... Maybe will remain legal in certain states, but Washington will be fighting decriminalization/legalization every step of the way... The Great Society on the hill.

    It's risky to say the least. I used to be pretty active in another forum's politics board and it definitely creeps outside of the subforum, you can't really isolate it. Things are so hot-button that as someone else said, it skews your views of them even when you aren't discussing politics.Again, you can't keep politics entirely out, and I've said before politics that involves skiing or the outdoors is acceptable (like, drones flying in national parks, climate change and other weather topics, etc.) but I don't know how beneficial it is to start talking about religion, birth control, and gun control around here. Again I'm sort of agnostic on it. The rule is no politics but if people are civil I'm OK with it, if it gets out of hand we will lock a thread. That's about it.

    I use the "ignore" feature. I applied it to a couple of specific members and POOF politics disappeared from the threads I read.
