How is that even true? the search function performs just the same. Advanced search options are your friend.

Perhaps we should just remove the off-topic section?

There is some common sense and unwritten rules when you go to a forum like this. Politics is just one of them that we really should be allowed to post about there. I mean if we abuse it then yeah it might go away like the Rumor and Speculation sub forum that this place used to have.

This is not a flamewar. Shheesh, what do you talk about when you're gaming-- me, its politics

I mean, what else is there to talk about? Its relevant too. Seriously. We, north american folks, need to start anticipating, depending on the outcome of this race, whether we will need to begin shopping for NTSCJ or PAL games and hardware. We will become the new refugees of the world

See, gaming discussion. ;)

(i assume you meant to say we should not be discussing politics... )
Impulse, if you feel this is the case. Please remove this thread and implement the rule.
The intention was to have satirical discussion with familiar gamers and get to know them a little better. :arrow:

I didn't. I just responded to it.

You are the ignore button. It's that simple.

Come on man, one thread about politics and you're already talking like this?...

I think you're overreacting a little.

This is why I originally responded to this by getting us to just stop. Honestly if we are going to have politic talk in a gaming community, we are going to have a bad time. I really don't want to see you guys breaking down on something that is quite possibly the most controversial moment in US history.

I steer clear of these debates and will keep my opinion to myself.

As far as I know we do not have any rules about posting about politics here. If there is something that you do not like about a topic you do not have to post in it or read any of the postings. It is pretty easy to skip a thread and the search box does indeed work to find topics. I do not plan to speak to much on this election as I feel that it is fucked up. I will how ever tie it into a gaming analogy that John Oliver made on Sunday.

I do understand where you are coming from but after Wikileaks showed off what happened with the Hillary commision and John Oliver it does grind my gears that people can still quotes his phrases.
